The global glass curtain wall market size is projected to reach USD 71.14 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. Increasing foreign direct investment (FDI) in commercial construction projects in developing economies will be a powerful driving force for the market, Emerging economies in Asia and Africa are growing at a furious pace, which is creating enormous investment opportunities, particularly in the real estate sector, for investors and companies in the developed nations. With a view to attract investments, governments in these countries are simplifying processes and policies to create a friendly investment climate. For example, in India, the central government is contemplating allowing 100% FDI in completed real estate projects amid the COVID-19 pandemic. India already allows 100% FDI via the automatic route in construction development projects. Large investments in commercial and residential construction projects will naturally generate high demand for premium building aesthetics such as glass curtain wall systems, which will fuel the market growth.

Market Restraint

Contracting Construction Activities Worldwide amid COVID-19 to Truncate Growth

Construction projects around the globe have hit a rock as governments in several countries have been imposing strict lockdown and social distancing measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The UK-based Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RCIS) reported in August 2020 that 25% of construction projects, globally, had come to a halt in the second quarter of 2020, with on-site productivity falling by 12%. Furthermore, the RCIS estimated that overall growth in construction activities was -24% in the second quarter. Projects delays and cancellations look imminent and this will inevitably stymie the glass curtain wall market growth as builders and developers are unlikely to invest in and adopt high-end aesthetics such as glass curtain walls for their constructions. In the residential sector, diminished sentiments and economic downturn, especially in developing nations, will further inhibit investments in costly structural enhancements, which in turn affect the health of this market.
