Global Fire Resistant Glass Market Overview:
Growing emphasis on improving the fire safety standards of the commercial as well as residential infrastructure is projected to have a positive impact on the global fire resistance glass industry. Fire resistant glass is called as safety glass mainly used for protection from fire, smoke, and heat. Fire resistance glass is used at various places where building regulations stipulate a specific level of fire resistance and where the people demand natural light and clear visibility such as hospitals, hotels, restaurants, office buildings, computer rooms, schools, stores, shopping centers, airports, industrial buildings, warehouses, and laboratories. Some of the key players profiled in the study are DuPont (United States), DOW Corning (United States), AkzoNobel N.V. (Netherlands), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), De Saint-Gobain (France), SCHOTT AG (Germany), NSG Pilkington (Japan), Asahi Glass Co. Ltd. (Japan), Pyroguard (United Kingdom) and Glass Dynamics Inc. (United States).
On the basis of geography, the market of Fire Resistant Glass has been segmented into South America (Brazil, Argentina, Rest of South America), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Rest of Europe), MEA (Middle East, Africa), North America (United States, Canada, Mexico). North America region held largest market share in the year 2018. Europe on the other hand stood as second largest market due to the presence of key companies into the region and high technological advancement.
