Global Polycarbonate Glazing Market: Overview
Polycarbonate is an engineering thermoplastic which is amorphous in nature. It is transparent in appearance naturally and has very high impact strength and shatter resistance. Due to this, polycarbonate is widely used as a replacement of glass in a wide range of applications. Polycarbonate is lighter than glass and is used in automotive glazing as it makes the automotive lighter and in turn improves fuel efficiency. Polycarbonate glazing is also used in construction. It also finds applications in greenhouses. Polycarbonate glazing proves to be better as compared to glass in these applications and thus is greatly preferred over glass. Adoption of polycarbonate glazing in commercial glazing applications is also gaining momentum and is expected to rise during the forecast period.
