By regulating the heat, light, and air flows through the building enclosure, the thermal envelope plays a critical role in enabling energy-efficient buildings that are comfortable for the occupants. In this report, we review the emerging thermal-envelope technologies, sizing the market for dynamic windows – which change transparency to manage daylighting, glare and solar heat gain – and advanced insulation. In the likeliest scenario, we predict a $418 million market for dynamic windows by 2020, with 57% driven by European commercial and government buildings, and a $411 million market for advanced insulation. Despite the growth in these emerging segments, the market will continue to be dominated by passive window technologies and standard insulation products.
