Indeed, of the half-dozen technologies that are currently being aimed at the emerging smart windows sector, it seems likely that EC glass will do the best in the marketplace.This report also considers the possibility that entirely new electrochromic materials may emerge for smart glass in the next decade.
Based on NanoMarkets six years' experience of analyzing the smart glass market, we have published this report which identifies the main opportunities in the EC space, not just in windows and mirrors, but also in emerging areas such as cell-phone cameras. The report includes granular eight-year forecasts of EC glass in volume and value terms, with breakouts by application, material type and substrate.
The report discusses how EC glass and film will shape up in the market compared to other smart glass technologies and also looks at the various electrochromic materials that can serve as the basis for EC glass. It also assesses the business strategies of the specialist firms that operate in this area and provides an in depth understanding of why giant firms such as Corning, GE, Guardian Glass, Merck, Saint-Gobain, and Seagate have all made investments in EC Glass.
This report is designed to be a strategic guide to the opportunities in electrochromic glass and film for business strategists, market planners and product management in the glass and specialty chem industries as well as at smart glass start-ups.
