Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is defined as a glass interlayer used in various end-use industries due to its different chemical properties. These films and sheets offer special characteristics including impact resistance, transparency, elasticity and high tensile strength. These properties make sheets and films suitable for the production of safety glass.

Market Drivers: Growing Application of PVB in Laminated Glass Market Will Drive Market Growth

PVB has found its application for its short term growth in the laminated glass market. PVB is used as a resin for applications that require bonding, optical clarity, adhesion to glass surfaces, toughness and flexibility. The main application of polyvinyl butyral is as an interlayer in laminated safety glass for architectural purposes and automotive windshields. PVB laminated glass is manufactured by combining two or more annealed or heat treated glass sheets bonded with one or more PVB interleaves and subjected to heat and pressure, in order to ensure a perfect adhesion between the constituent elements.

Recently, the demand for using PVB as an interlayer in sandwich laminated glass has increased dramatically, due to its use for safety and security purposes in automobile windshields. PVB prevents glass shattering in an accident, thus preventing bodily injury from sharp shards of glass. PVB laminated glass also offers good impact resistance, sound insulation and UV resistance. In addition, the UV protection function of PVB laminated glass prevents fading of interiors.

Market challenges: high production costs could limit market growth

PVB, compared to its substitutes such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), has high manufacturing and processing costs. The original PVB material has for many years been the benchmark material for laminated glass in the building and transportation industries, but EVA has gained traction in recent years due to its properties which in some cases , are better than PVB. The processing of PVB film requires a special temperature-controlled chamber, and the glass then has to be processed in an autoclave, which in turn requires an expensive and large machine suitable for companies with large volumes. On the other hand, EVA laminated glass can be produced in convection or infrared laminating furnaces, these furnaces are small and accessible to small and medium enterprises. In addition, the current COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be an obstacle to market growth due to the shutdown of major areas of PVB application such as construction and automotive industries.

Market Opportunities: Growing demand in the PV industry will be a growth prospect for the market

PVB is gaining momentum in the manufacture of thin-film photovoltaic solar modules. The PV circuit is formed on a sheet of glass using thin film deposition and modeling techniques. Two layers, which are a layer of PVB and a second layer of glass (called back glass) are then placed directly on the circuit. This stratification encapsulates the circuit and protects it from environmental conditions. PVB backsheet offers a range of properties as it has good impact properties and is considered a cheaper alternative to tedlar-based backsheets. In addition, the optical properties of PVB are better than that of EVA, the adhesion of PVB to the photovoltaic cell is also better than that of EVA. The photovoltaic industry attracts market investment in order to meet the growing demand for clean and sustainable energy, the increase in the photovoltaic industry market is expected to be a promising growth prospect for the PVB market during the period of ‘to analyse.
