Global PVB Interlayers Market Overview
The global PVB interlayers market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to record significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% within the forecast period (2021-2028).
Since the late 1930s, PVB has become the most popular laminated safety glass interlayer material. PVB is a resin commonly used for binding, optical clarity, adhesion to glass surfaces, hardness, and flexibility. PVB is widely used as an interlayer in laminated protective glass for architectural applications and vehicle windscreens. PVB interlayers are films that are sandwiched between glass panels to provide additional protection. Due to properties such as optical clarity, hardness, tight bond, adhesion, and stability.
PVB interlayers are durable and ductile, so brittle cracks can not migrate from one side of the laminate to the other. PVB interlayers were designed primarily for automotive applications to minimize head-impact injuries in car accidents. PVB is used to make more than 90% of laminated protective glass interlayers.
PVB Interlayers Fibers Dynamics
Increasing production of vehicles and improving safeguard regulations are fuelling the growth of the PVB interlayers market across the world. Increasing construction projects, majorly in the developing parts of the world, are triggering the demand for PVB interlayers in recent times.
Increasing production of vehicles and improving safeguard regulations are fuelling the growth of the PVB interlayers market across the world.
Automobile sales are expected to drop to just under 70 million units in 2021, down from nearly 80 million units in 2017. Commercial vehicles and passenger cars are the two most significant segments of the auto industry. China holds the world's largest auto markets position, both in terms of sales and production. Car sales in China dipped for the first time in 2018; the market cratered in February 2020 but bounced back shortly after. The growing demand for vehicles affects the entire industry, and all manufacturers are focused on releasing the best vehicle possible. One of the most appealing features that attract users is the modern implementation of the PVB interlayer. The use of the best PVB application is becoming increasingly popular, especially in automobiles. Resins are commonly used in automobiles to create solid binding and optical clarity glass. The automotive-grade PVB film is also the first choice of engineers, thus pushing the product's global market with the growing automobile market.
Increasing construction projects, majorly in the developing parts of the world, are triggering the demand for PVB interlayers in recent times.
The use of laminated glass in architectural applications started to develop about 35 years ago. The prime reasons behind the growth of the PVB interlayers in the construction sector are increased daylighting in building through more glass surfaces and rising safety standards in building codes. Laminated glass is also increasingly challenged to help meet the energy control requirements imposed on new and retrofitted buildings. These improving demands have resulted in a significant increase in interlayer solutions. Some of the mentioned problems were initially addressed by modifying the original "automotive" PVB, such as raising interlayer thickness from 0.38mm to 4.56mm or more, increasing sheet size, and introducing colors for architectural applications, including translucency. However, the initial PVB recipe proved to have limitations for architectural applications as the architectural laminated glass market matured and led to the creation of other polymers such as ionomers and EVA and modifications to the PVB formula for applications such as improved acoustics. Thus, the growing advancements in the PVB interlayers are further expected to push the global construction market and the growth of the product in the forecast period.
Growing demand for renewable energy sources to reduce carbon concentration in the environment
The growing use of PVB interlayers in the photovoltaic industry is expected to boost the global PVB interlayers market. The photovoltaic industry will grow faster as demand for solar energy grows. When used as an encapsulant in photovoltaic devices, PVB interlayers have more benefits than other plastic materials. PVB films and sheets are expected to see a healthy increase in demand in the coming years due to their use in solar energy, ground transportation, and building and construction. In addition, the growing demand for photovoltaic modules in China and Japan is expected to boost product use in the solar energy sector. Therefore growing shift towards renewable energy sources is more likely to create immense opportunities for the PVB interlayers to grow in the forecast period.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
COVID-19 had a negative effect on the market in 2020. In the event of a pandemic, automotive manufacturing operations were temporarily put on halt during the lockdown to prevent the spread of new COVID-19 cases, lowering demand for PVB material to fabricate a clear, impact-resistant automotive windshield. According to the Organization for International Cooperation on Automobiles (OICA), global passenger car production fell 16.9% in 2020 compared to the previous year, owing primarily to the pandemic's negative effect. Furthermore, during the lockdown, construction activities halted, reducing demand for PVB, which is used to manufacture laminated glass for windows, overhead glazing, and par glass.
PVB Interlayers Market Segment Analysis
The global PVB interlayers market is segmented based on type, application, end-user and region.
The improving focus on renewable sources for energy generation leads to an increase in the consumption of PVB interlayers in the photovoltaic segment is projected to grow during the forecast period
In terms of end-user, the global PVB interlayers market is segmented into photovoltaic, automotive, construction, etc. The photovoltaic segment is growing at the fastest rate in recent tenure. Since 2005, the PV module and glass industries have been working together to replace existing encapsulants in double-glazing components with embedded solar cells with PVB film to greatly improve the protection of laminated module glass in Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV). Furthermore, the lamination process was successfully used to develop laminated safety glass, which produces thin-film solar modules consisting of two plies of glass sandwiching a PVB interlayer at a low cost.
On the other hand, Automotive is expected to build a larger market share for PVB interlayer in the forecast. The growing demand for vehicles affects the entire industry, and all manufacturers are focused on releasing the best vehicle possible. One of the most appealing features that attract users is the modern implementation of the PVB interlayer. The use of the best PVB application is becoming increasingly popular, especially in automobiles.
