Window Films Market: Overview
A 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 for 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 the film act as a solar energy barrier to either absorb or reflect a portion of the sun’s rays passing through the glass.
Among types of window films, dyed films do not contain any metal and they 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 Market: Drivers & Restrains
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 in increasing the comfort of cars, homes, and offices. Furthermore, fading of interior carpets, artworks, and furnishings can also be slowed down. Window films are also used for enhancing the look of windows and for providing additional privacy. These films can also hold broken glass together, which results in prevention of injury. To a certain extent, the use of window films can prevent or delay vandalism and theft. The thickness added to the glass can make it more difficult and time-consuming to break the glass.
Certain regulations can act as a restraint on the global window films market. For example, governments in several countries disallow the application of window films on vehicles. Several reasons ranging from security to identification purposes are cited towards this end. It is worth noting that 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 shares from established players.
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 market are employed in commercial buildings for the aesthetic purpose and also, to prevent harmful effects of sunrays. On the other hand, in the automotive sector, window films are used for improved eyesight, better vision, protection of vehicle interiors from harmful effects of sunrays.
