Global Technical Glass Market: Overview
Technical glass is a type of engineered glass used in a wide spectrum of architectural and structural applications in a range of end-use industries. Technical glass either as a standalone product or in combination with other types of engineered glass have gained traction across the electronics industry. Their usage has gained momentum on account of several technological applications they can be put to, mainly due to attractive chemistries they exhibit. Some of the notable properties that make this type of engineered glass suitable for high-technology applications are excellent chemical resistance, high mechanical strength, thermal stability, and high optical transmission. Key application areas where technical glass are used may include laboratories and pharmaceutical, lighting, consumer and institutional appliances.
Manufacturers, world over, across the globe are coming out with technical glass products that promise better performance profiles and scores higher on versatility for end-use industries. Rapidly rising demand for alkali-lead silicate technical glass and soda lime glass reflects positively on this trend.
