U.S. glass facade market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The U.S. was a major market for glass Facade in 2020. The increasing popularity of the green building concept, growing awareness regarding environmental protection, and supporting government policies related to sustainable energy usage are expected to augment the use of glass facades in the country.

Furthermore, the growing demand for high-rise buildings owing to rapid urbanization is anticipated to positively influence market growth. The application of glass as a material in Facade is becoming popular owing to its lightweight, which reduces the dead load of the buildings. Most of the tallest buildings in the world have glass facades, for example, Jeddah Tower in Dubai, Merdeka 118 in Malaysia, and DeKALB in Brooklyn.

Glass in the exteriors brings out the aesthetic appeal of commercial buildings, thus, positively impacting the brand value. Growing commercial construction activities owing to the increasing demand for office space and corporate hubs are positively impacting market growth.

Despite its advantages, glass is not suitable for use in places with hot climates as it traps heat and acts as a greenhouse. Buildings with glass Facade have high temperatures inside, resulting in increased usage of air-conditioners and fans. Higher usage of air-conditioners lead to an increase in electricity cost and also impact carbon footprint. Glass Facade is suitable for places with a temperate climate and not apt for cities with hot climates.
