Obscure Glass Market: Introduction

Obscure glass is mostly transparent, but its surface is textured. This makes vision a bit distorted and blurry when taking a photograph. It is used to separate spaces and create haziness in visibility between spaces. Obscure glass is primarily employed to provide privacy in a closed space. It offers distinctive characteristics, making it a viable option among architects, interior decorators, and property owners.

Rise in disposable income of consumers has led to an improvement in standard of living of the people. This, in turn, is boosting the demand for smart infrastructural facilities across the globe. These factors are propelling the demand for obscure glasses, particularly for decoration purposes. Additionally, windows made of obscure glass are ideal solutions for exteriors, as they provide security as well as privacy within the space. Obscure glass windows such as reflective windows help reflect the rays of the sun. This lowers energy consumption within the room. Furthermore, reflective windows allow one to see the outside, while maintaining privacy in the space. These factors are projected to drive the obscure glass market across the globe. However, high cost of manufacturing obscure glass is anticipated to hamper the growth of the obscure glass market across the globe.

Obscure Glass Market: Key Segments

In terms of type, the global obscure glass market can be segmented into tinted, reflective, and frosted. Reflective and frosted segments are estimated to expand at a rapid pace in the next few years. Frosted glass is more or less opaque, with fine and smooth texture. It is mainly used for office workspace partitions, and retail store fronts. Benefits of installing reflective glass include enhanced privacy and protection from ultraviolet rays.

Based on application, the global obscure glass market can be divided into residential, commercial, industrial, and others. Residential and commercial segments are expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period due to the consistent usage of obscure glass in kitchen & bathroom splash backs, kitchen cupboards, displays and balustrades, domestic and commercial partition walling, furniture, doors, among others.
