North America Smart Glass Market 2
North America Smart Glass Market 2

The North American smart glass market is expected to register a CAGR of around 12% over the period of 2021-2027. The market is rising on account of the growing urbanization, the energy-saving capacity of smart glasses, uses of smart glasses in automobile applications, and supportive government initiatives. Moreover, improved health safety followed by decreasing prices of electrochromic glasses is positively stimulating the industry landscape. The term smart glasses refer to devices that include screen-based technology that can be projected onto a lens, or devices that are separate components that present information to the user without distraction when not needed. Smart glasses are used in a variety of ways such as application development, information visualization, image data analysis, data processing, navigation, information transmission and exchange, risk detection, and warning.

Polytronix Inc., PPG Industries Inc., Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A., Pulp Studio Inc., RavenBrick LLC, ChromoGenics AB, Corning Inc., Gentex Corporation, Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Ltd., and Research Frontiers Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
