Window Films: Introduction

  • Window film can be defined as a self-adhesive polyester film applied to a glass surface. It is used for blocking harmful UV rays and regulating the level of heat and light passing through the glass. Window films can be applied in automobiles, homes, and commercial buildings.
  • The primary purpose of glass is to provide a natural view of the outside world, while also acting as a barrier for external elements. Special dyes, metals, and nanotechnology employed in films act as solar energy barrier to either absorb or reflect a portion of the sun’s rays passing through the glass.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Window Films Market

  • There are several benefits of using window films. They provide protection from negative effects of the sun such as reduced visibility and eyestrain. They also help in reducing air-conditioning costs and increasing the comfort of cars, homes, and offices. Furthermore, fading of interior carpets, artworks, and furnishings can be slowed down. Window films are also used for enhancing the look of windows and providing additional privacy. These films can also hold broken glass together. This results in prevention of injuries. The use of window films can also prevent or delay vandalism and theft to a certain extent. The thickness added to the glass can make it more difficult and time-consuming to break the glass.
  • Certain regulations can act as restraining factors of the global window films market. Governments of several countries disallow the application of window films on vehicles. Several reasons ranging from security to identification purposes are cited towards this end. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits are also available in the global window films market. These are recent developments and have the potential to take away the market share of established players.

Window Films: Type Segment

  • Dyed films do not contain any metal and are non-reflective, as they absorb solar energy. However, their lack of reflective ability makes them less effective. On the other hand, nanotechnology-based or metallized films provide both reflection and absorption of solar energy. Hence, they are more effective compared to dyed films.

Window Films: Application Segment

  • Window films are used primarily in residential, commercial, and automotive sectors. The most common purpose for usage of window films in the residential sector is additional privacy and prevention of harmful effects of sunrays.
  • Window films are used in commercial buildings for esthetic purposes. They are also employed to prevent the harmful effects of sunrays. On the other hand, window films are used for improved eyesight, better vision, and protection of vehicle interiors from harmful effects of sunrays in the automotive sector.

Covid-19 Impact on Window Films Market

  • On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 213 countries and territories around the world.
  • Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Manufacture of various consumer goods and other products across the globe has come to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, etc. This is expected to hamper the window films market.

North America to Dominate Global Window Films Market

  • North America accounted for the major share of the global market in 2020. It is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period owing to to new investments being made in the region, reflecting a recovery in Canada's residential and non-residential construction. This can be ascribed to capital expenditure cuts in the oil & gas sector and the government's fiscal stimulus plan to spur new non-residential construction. Furthermore, given the expected rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, an increase in long-term interest rates is likely to remain gradual.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. The construction industry in Asia Pacific is expanding at a rapid rate owing to the rise in urbanization, especially in emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Exponential population growth in these countries, high demand for affordable housing, and governmental schemes promoting basic amenities, such as food and shelter, are expected to drive the market in Asia Pacific.
