Borosilicate Glass Market, By Type (Alkaline Earth Containing Borosilicate Glasses, Non-Alkaline Ea

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1951672


Increasing demand from medical & healthcare and electronics for various applications is expected to drive the market growth of the Borosilicate Glass Market during the forecast period. Borosilicate glass is manufactured by melting and combining silica sand, boric oxide, alumina, and soda ash. Borosilicate glass has various properties, such as low thermal expansion coefficient, high thermal resistance, high chemical corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength, etc., which make it a suitable material for use in various applications in numerous end-user industries. However, borosilicate glass cracks due to sudden or uneven temperature variations, which can hamper its market growth.

Segment Analysis: 

Based on type, the market has been segmented into alkaline earth containing borosilicate glasses, non-alkaline earth borosilicate glass, and high-borate borosilicate glasses. High-borate borosilicate flat glasses are used in a wide variety of industries, mainly in technical applications due to their high thermal resistance and excellent chemical durability.

The borosilicate glass market is expected to witness high growth in the medical & healthcare industry due to the increased use of borosilicate glass in medical and healthcare devices. This market is expected to grow in the Asia Pacific region due to rapid growth in population, along with increasing urbanization and a rise in disposable incomes, which has led to the increased purchase of home appliances.
