TheGlass Curtain Wall Market is estimated at USD 44.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 73.4 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 10.50%. The rising infrastructure and building & construction industries drive the demand for glass curtain walls. Furthermore, the increase in demand from end-use industries of glass curtain wall further boosts market growth.
A glass curtain wall is a system of bonding glass to a building’s structure with the help of a metal frame and a high-strength and high-performance silicone sealant. Further, these systems are mostly aluminium-framed thin walls and contain in-fills of glass or other metal panels.
The glass curtain wall market is led by major players such as Saint-Gobain (France), Asahi Glass (Japan), Central Glass (Japan), Guardian Industries (US), and Nippon Sheet Glass (US). Expansions, investments, mergers, acquisitions, new product launches, and partnerships are some of the major strategies adopted by the leading players operating in the glass curtain wall market.
The unitized curtain walls segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR in the global glass curtain wall market from 2018 to 2023
The unitized curtain wall segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value, due to its high demand in the commercial buildings, and the rise in demand for infrastructure and buildings & construction solutions. The components of unitized curtain wall systems are assembled and installed in the factories and then brought to the construction sites. The size of these curtain wall systems is directly proportional to the height of the building (floor-to-floor height of the building). The need for easy & quick construction and better sound quality in buildings drive the need for unitized curtain wall systems.
