Fire Resistant Glass Market size is forecast to reach $11.5 billion by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 12.1% during 2020-2025. Fire resistant glasses control smoke, fire, and heat, thereby letting safe passage in case of fire. The rise in fire-related accidents has propelled the demand for fire resistant glasses. Lately, it has been observed that the market for passive fire protection has grown significantly. It can be attributed to the low maintenance cost of passive fire protection as compared to active fire protection. Furthermore, the performance and reliability of passive fire protection systems are higher than that of active fire protection systems. Fire resistant glass is one of the passive protection systems and hence, it is witnessing increasing adoption across various sectors.
By Type – Segment Analysis
Ceramic segment held a significant share in fire resistant glass market in 2019. Growing use of ceramic glass in the form of insulated glass units (IGU) owing to its superior fire resistance from 20 minutes to 3 hours, along with the ability to withstand thermal shock, is likely to drive the demand over the forecast period. In addition, the sound insulation properties of the ceramic products boost its demand, which is likely to have a positive influence on the fire resistant glass market growth. The demand for ceramic fire resistant glasses is mainly driven by their ability to provide aesthetic appeal to the end products at lower prices and resistance to thermal shock during firefighting, in comparison to the laminated glasses.

By Application – Segment Analysis
Building & Construction segment held a significant share in fire resistant glass market in 2019 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. These glasses are largely used in building & construction industry to prevent the spread of flames and smokes and block the transfer of radiant and conductive heat. The increasing building safety codes and fire safety regulations in major markets along with increasing demand for passive fire protection are driving the market for fire resistant glasses in this segment. Marine is anticipated to be grow at a significant pace ver the forecast period. The growth is attributed to rising use of fire resistant glass in ships and yachts to prevent the sinking of vessel containers in the event of fire break out.
The coronavirus outbreak, which originated in Wuhan, China, has impacted the growth of industrial economy. The building and construction industry is among the crucial sectors hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. To prevent the spread of the outbreak, governments in many countries have enforced lockdowns, restricting the movement of people as well as goods. Due to several government restrictions put in place in these regions, many construction activities have either been temporarily halted, postponed, or entirely cancelled.
Geography- Segment Analysis
North America dominated the fire resistant glass market with a share of more than XX%, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. Rising investments by foreign companies; growing production facilities; strong industrial base for the construction, marine, and automotive sectors; and rise in standard of living are the major factors contributing to the growth of the fire resistant glass market in this region. The stringent norms for use of these glasses in schools and healthcare facilities are also driving the demand for fire resistant glass in the region. Growing emphasis by the regional governments in the mature economies of North America and Europe to obtain compliance certificate related adherence to fire safety norms of the buildings and infrastructure is expected to fuel the industry growth over the forecast period.
In United States, The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) was founded by insurance companies for standardizing the new market of fire sprinkler systems. NFPA created a set of codes named Comprehensive Consensus Codes, which include NFPA 5000 as the central building code, NFPA 101, and Life Safety Code. The codes explained in detail the minimum requirements for protecting occupants against toxic fumes, smoke, and fire in new and existing buildings. This is expected to lead to a growth of the fireproofing coatings market. Thirty-nine states in the United States adopted the NFPA 101 and the Life safety Code, ensuring that buildings are protected as well as all systems and services are correctly maintained. Such strict regulations pertaining to fire safety and building safety in the country is expected to boost product demand in the coming years. The aforementioned factors, coupled with government regulations, are contributing to the increasing demand for fire-resistant glass in North America.
