Smart Glass Market to Grow More Than 250% by 2016, Lead by Aerospace and Transportation
FARMINGTON, Conn., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Information Inc is pleased to announce the immediate availability of two excellent new smart glass premium market research reports:
Global Markets and Technologies for Smart Glass
While the origins of smart glass can be traced back as far as 1704 to when the first electrochromic material was discovered, true interest in smart glass technology only picked up significant momentum in the early 1970s, when the number of research activities resulting in patent applications and issued patents increased rapidly. This led to the development of improved fabrication processes, advanced properties and an increased number of applications spanning many industrial sectors.
Today, smart glass represents a billion-dollar industry, with the transportation and aerospace sector accounting for over 91% of the global market in 2011.
The market for smart glass experienced a slowdown in growth as a result of the global economic downturn in 2008 and 2009. Since then, global economic conditions have gradually improved, and smart glass fabrication technologies have continued to evolve. Several new applications have been developed, whereas others are ready to exit the development stage and enter commercialization.
BCC Research's new smart glass global market research report presents a current assessment of the smart glass industry by focusing on markets and technologies, as well as to outline future trends and key developments. The report finds massive growth opportunities, and predicts a tremendous surge in the market through 2016. This report provides technical insights (fabrication technologies, technical issues, technological developments) as well as the current market status of smart glass, defining trends and growth forecasts for the next five years
