Antibacterial glass refers to a thin and flat reflective surface that is fortified with bactericidal and fungicidal properties. It destroys microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, that come in contact with the surface and prevents them from multiplying. It is manufactured by diffusing silver ions into the upper layers of the glass, which interact with microbes and disturb their metabolic and division mechanisms. In comparison to the traditionally used glass, this type of glass is more hygienic, easier to maintain and has high sterilization and self-cleaning properties under ultraviolet (UV) light.

The rising instances of nosocomial or Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Consequently, these glasses are extensively utilized in the healthcare sector, especially in the burn, maternity, and geriatric oncology units. Furthermore, antibacterial glass provides protection against antibiotic-resistant pathogens and aids in preventing various fatal ailments, including pneumonia and infections in the bloodstream and urinary tract. This, coupled with the growing awareness regarding the importance of maintaining hygiene and sanitation in healthcare centers and clinics, is significantly driving the market growth. Additionally, the growing demand for antibacterial glass to sanitize machines and equipment used in the food and beverage (F&B) industry is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Manufacturers in the F&B industry are emphasizing on using antibacterial glass on food contact surfaces to minimize spoilage from microbial contamination and extending the shelf-life of the food products. Other factors, including the increasing adoption of antibacterial glass in the production of consumer electronics, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops, coupled with the extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
