Regional Market Growth Largely Defined by Prevalent Government Policies & Regulations

  • Demand for energy and power across various industries in the Americas is anticipated to steadily peak in the coming years. However, global warming has created concerns among the population, and industries across the region are swiftly moving toward renewable sources of energy such as solar energy to reduce carbon footprint. This is positively impacting the growth of the photovoltaic glass market across North America.
  • Coal is the chief source of power generation in Europe, owing to the presence of extensive coal reserves in the region. Governments in Europe have implemented policies to increase the use of clean energy and reduce the generation of non-renewable sources of electricity production. This has promoted the use of photovoltaic technologies in the region.
  • In Asia Pacific, the renewable energy sector is witnessing rapid growth, owing to significant developments in the energy and power sector in countries such as China, India, Japan, and Australia. Strong governmental policies pertaining to the dissemination of clean energy projects is acting in favor of the Asia Pacific photovoltaic glass market.
  • The Middle East & Africa region has an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, and, as such, there are mixed approaches toward the adoption of solar energy as a viable renewable energy source. However, some countries in MEA are proactively shifting toward photovoltaic modules, thereby placing this regional market on a relatively moderate growth path.
