Report #Nano-0321
Published July 20, 2021

This new Smart Windows Market report analyzes and forecasts where the revenues and volume shipments will be generated over the next 10 years. The report also forecasts the application opportunity area with respect to smart windows. The smart windows technologies that are covered in this report include both active and passive technology. In active technology we have covered SPD (Suspended Particle Devices), liquid crystals, and electrochromic technologies. While in passive technology, we have covered thermochromic and photochromic technologies. The report also forecasts revenues for key application areas focusing on the opportunities in respective segments. Finally, the report will discuss the cost associated with smart windows and how that can be deciding factor for this market.

In the Smart Windows Market report, we also (1) segment the building application area, which we expect the largest area, into residential and commercial buildings, and further providing an opportunity analysis of the same, and (2) discuss the impact of IoT and smart sensors on the smart windows market. Apart from buildings, the report also discuss about smaller yet growing application areas such as automotive and aerospace, and the impact IoT and cost will have on these areas. Lastly, we have included a section on healthcare, which has some interesting uses of smart windows and is another small yet growing application area.

In addition to an analysis of the technologies related to smart windows, this report also contains strategic profiles of leading vendors and startups active in the smart windows space.  In these profiles we discuss the product/market strategies employed by companies targeting the smart windows market.  This report is designed to guide business development executives, product managers, investors and others to recognize key opportunity areas in the smart windows market.

This report is scheduled for August 2021 release. Contact us to be updated with additional information.
