Global Electrochromic Glass and Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints 2015-2025; Future Market Insights

Ever thought of glasses whose visibility can be tailored as per your needs, electrochromic glass is one such alternative.  Electrochromic materials are the ones capable of changing their optical properties reversibly and persistently, by the application of an electrical voltage.

This effect is deployed in cooling or warming a room and to save energy by cutting down on air conditioning or heating. This technology have been known for years.

Electrochromic devices (ECD) are systems of considerable commercial interest due to their controllable transmission, absorption and/or reflectance. ECD is five-layer structure typically composed of glass substrate, transparent conductor, electrochromic coating, ion conductor and ion storage coating. These devices are gaining prominence due to their possible application in architecture for energy-efficient modern buildings; where it is possible to control the flow of light and heat passing through the building glazing. ECDs can also be applied as glazing of vehicles, aircrafts, trains and also as rearview mirrors already used in vehicles, as well as temperature control of frozen food. Primarily these devices are used to glare attenuation in automobile rearview mirrors and also in smart windows which regulate the solar gains of buildings. Other possible applications of ECDs include solar cells, small- and large-area flat panel displays, frozen food monitoring and document authentication also are of great interest.
