Electrochromic glass market worth $2.59 billion by 2020 according to new research report

“Electrochromic Glass” is a kind of glass which changes its light transmission properties when provided with stimulus of voltage. When used in windows, electrochromic glass can control the amount of light passing through them. When activated, the electrochromic glass responds to voltage and changes from transparent to translucent state, blocking some or all wavelengths of light.

According to a new market research reportElectrochromic Glass Marketby Material (Polymers, Nanocrystals, Viologens), Device (Windows, Mirror, Display, Application (Commercial, Residential, Transportation, Retail, Hospitality), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2020”,the total electrochromic glass market was valued at $1.17 Billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $2.59 Billion by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 12.27% between 2014 and 2020.
