Global insulated glass (IG) market is expected to grow over the forecast period on account of rising demand for HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) technology. Increasing demand for insulated glass is driven largely by the thriving industrial industry of residential and industrial construction. Insulated glass is used in office buildings, hotels, hospitals, homes and for those buildings which require large amounts of cooling and heating. It is best suited for those spaces where temperature and humidity needs to be controlled.

Train windows and airport control towers are one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of global insulated glass market. HVAC technology aims at providing thermal comfort and indoor air quality to buildings and homes. This technology makes use of insulated glass to control the air quality inside the building. Insulated glasses are assembled sheets of glass which are separated by a vacuum sealed edge to reduce the heat transferring across building envelopes.
Insulated glass units contribute largely in saving energy and reducing the costs incurred in energy consumption. It curtails down the pollution level and enhances the comfort zone inside the building which is the major cause behind its growing popularity. Owing to these factors their demand is increasing in various marine applications and control towers. Doors, windows and skylights are applied with insulated glasses in buses, refrigeration units, rail transportation and cars to conserve energy and increase the comfort level.

IG are of various types such as clear glasses, reflective glasses, tinted glasses, low emissivity glasses, patterned glasses, laminated glasses, spandrel glasses, fire rated glasses, hydrophilic coated glasses, wired glasses and electro-chromic coatings. These glass types are selected according to the requirements of the IG unit regarding reflectivity, coloration, sound and light transmission. Usage of insulated glass in façade construction permits the designing professionals to erect buildings with larger vision areas and thermally efficient infrastructure. These buildings look aesthetically appealing which has tremendously increased the popularity for insulated glass.
Fire-rated glasses offer fire resistance to buildings owing to their functional structure that does not allow it to warm up and catch fire easily. The level of resistance required by a building depends upon the application of the fire-rated glass installation. Wired glasses are mainly applied to hotels, businesses and schools. It is produced mainly as a fire retardant with a wired net inlaid in glass to prevent it from breaking and shattering when exposed to extreme high temperatures. The glass protects the inner infrastructure of the building from the harmful effects of flame and smoke. Windows in hallways and stairwells which lead to emergency exit doors are the best examples of places where wired glass is a smart addition.
