Electrochromic Materials Market Insights
The electrochromic materials market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Technically, it is an amalgamation of chromogenic materials which responds to heat and light intensity and alters its transparency accordingly. In the electronics industry, it is commonly known as dynamic glass which offers various benefits such as control, on-demand privacy and energy efficiency. Electrochromic materials possess various properties such as evocation, bleaching of color and change affected either by sufficient electrochemical potential or by electron transfer process. Material or glass can change its property from transparent to translucent, blocking some wavelengths of light and heat intensities. Technological advancement is expected to boost the demand for electrochromic material in various applications such as hospitals, internet of things and others. Increasing number of manufacturing bases or plants across the region is expected to boost the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Other factors expected to boost the market is increasing automotive production and a significant increase in building and construction industry across the region. However, there are some restraints which are creating barriers to the growth of markets such as lack of awareness about the material amongst the architects and builders, high cost of electrochromic materials and slower responsiveness to bigger glass surfaces as compared to the smaller sized glasses are some of the key factors restraining the growth of the market.
