With so many changes coming so fast, it can be hard to grasp the sheer scale of what is happening in the glass and glazing industry. And yet, if you want to keep up with opportunities throughout the year, you have to stay informed. Here are seven major trends we are seeing for 2020 and beyond.
1. Re-evaluating the supply chain to mitigate risks
If there’s one thing the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has made us realize, it’s that we take a lot of things for granted. You get it because you can’t afford the damages or losses. Similarly, you have to protect yourself against possible supply interruptions, whether the threat comes from a global pandemic, an act of God or a trade war. Start by understanding your exposure. Then develop a strategy to protect your business. For some businesses, this means diversifying their pool of suppliers. For others, it means educating procurement about alternatives or developing a new area of expertise.
2. High-performance buildings require high-performance glazing
The rapid move toward high-performance buildings will continue to drive demand for energy-efficient panels, which also require more technically advanced glazing systems. While triple-skin facades undoubtedly cost more than double-skin facades, the difference may become negligible when you factor in energy savings over the building’s lifespan. You also need to take into account significant gains in durability, acoustics and ventilation, and occupants’ overall comfort.
