Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) Market is estimated to be valued at USD 4.4 million by 2029 end and is projected to register a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period 2020 to 2029.

Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) is primarily used for making laminated safety glasses like soundproof glasses and windshields. These products offer properties like impact resistance ability, high strength, better security, high clarity and toughness. Furthermore, these glasses can absorb the harmful ultraviolet radiations from the sun thus enhancing vehicle protection. Due to these properties, such glasses are highly preferred in the automobile industry.

Application-wise, the market is bifurcated into adhesives, films & sheets and paints & coatings. Laminated glasses are manufactured using PVB sheets and films. These glasses are mainly used in automobile and architecture sectors. The strength and durability that these glasses offer are responsible for the increase in demand for PVB resulting into a significant market augmentation.

Based on the end user, the market is categorised as automobile, solar energy and other segments. PVB is prominently used in the ceramic industry owing to properties like thermal insulation, wear-resistance, hardness, oxidation resistance and chemical stability. The demand for PVB is estimated to soar significantly due to the rise of its use in the electrical and electronics and this shall augment the market growth of the other segment.
