By Type, the OLED glass segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the automotive sector, research and development efforts are prioritized towards enhancing passenger comfort and safety. The autonomous/self-driving vehicle trend, fueled by the innovation of sophisticated sensors and electronic components, is gaining traction globally. In response to evolving consumer preferences and increasing road traffic accidents, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are integrating advanced safety systems into their vehicles. Self-dimming glass and heated windshields are among the technologies being adopted to optimize passenger comfort, with self-dimming glass adjusting transparency/opacity to regulate glare and heat.

By Application, Transportation  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The OLED segment of the smart windows market has experienced notable growth in the last decade, driven by the adoption of Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) as an advanced glass solution for regulating light and heat in buildings. OLED glass, which emits light upon application of an electric current, offers enhanced control over natural light penetration by providing adjustable transparency and opacity levels. This energy-efficient and aesthetically appealing technology is projected to expand substantially in the forecast period due to its thin, flexible, and versatile nature, enabling customized window designs of various sizes and shapes.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

In the North American automotive market, the trend toward technological innovation is accelerating, driven by rising per capita income and a desire for luxury and premium features. Consumer awareness and demand for advanced safety and comfort solutions, such as sunroofs, moonroofs, and smart glass, are key factors fueling this adoption. The automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are responding to this trend by voluntarily integrating these technologies into their vehicles. Additionally, the growth of the residential and nonresidential construction sectors in the US is anticipated to propel the expansion of the smart windows market in the region.
