Conventional glass is increasingly being replaced by smart glass because of its properties that reduce energy consumption and elevates energy productivity in buildings and automobiles. Smart glass is a glass, whose light transmission properties are altered when heat, light or electrical energy is applied. Transportation manufacturing companies are using smart glass in sunroofs, rearview mirrors and windshields as it has the benefits of anti-glaring and vigorous light emission adjustment properties. It is even used for providing dimmable windows for private aircrafts and for the construction sector it is used as solar-control and energy-saving windows and privacy glass which can switch between clear and non-transparent glass with the click of a switch.
THE BUSINESS RESEARCH COMPANY EXPECTS THE MINERAL PRODUCTS MARKET TO GROW TO $2 TRILLION BY 2021
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the mineral products market in 2017, accounting for two-third of the market share. This can be attributed to the region’s large population and high demand from residential and industrial building and construction industries.
The chart below shows the year-on-year growth of the global mineral products market during 2017 – 2021
According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, Hollow clay bricks are replacing solid bricks because they are lighter, strong & durable, cost effective and eco-friendly. Hollow brick is manufactured using waste materials or natural substitutes and formed by placing moist clay in a mold. It acts as thermal and sound insulators due to the air present in the hollow area and also makes plumbing and other electrical drilling activities easier resulting in low labor cost. For instance, major companies offering hallow clay bricks include MRF Bricks, Summit Brick Company and Apollo Brick.
