New York City, NY, USA (February 28, 2014) -- Is wearable technology definitely destined for the great success that its many advocates might suggest? If moves by Google, Apple, Samsung and dozens of other firms are to be considered then wearable technology is poised to revolutionize mobile wireless internet, healthcare and fashion, as hundreds of developers and enthusiasts gear up for Golden Networking's Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologies.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechmunich.eventbrite.com).

The future is here, with the production of a new generation of technologies such as Google Glass, Apple "iWatch" and Samsung Galaxy Gear, among others, that will allow users to interact with computing devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. The introduction of smart watches and glasses bring upon economic, social and personal effects that will revolutionize the human experience.

The use of technology has greatly expanded out of the workplace into users' daily lives. Now the integration of human experience and wearable computing will allow users to enhance each experience. This new wave of technologies will ignite an explosion of innovation which will be the key to advancement.

Now we are at an inflexion point in the advancement of the adoption of wearable computing. To expand the market for wearable technologies, it is necessary for developers and manufacturers to lead the world to show how the usage of these technologies can revolutionize every aspect of the human experience; Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco, London, New York City, Seoul and Munich.

Golden Networking's Wearable Computing Conference 2014, "How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion," will examine wearable technologies' functions, application, the competition and possibilities for economic and personal growth. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to information@goldennetworking.com.

NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Glass Sales to the Automotive Sector to Reach $3.2 Billion by 2021

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, "Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry - 2014" covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 27, 2014) -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, "Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry - 2014" covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

Smart glass sales for cars, trucks and public transport are currently dominated by electrochromic mirrors; a relatively mature business. However, the report predicts new revenue opportunities emerging for smart auto glass from active self-dimming windows, self-cleaning glass and self-repairing glass and especially from glass embedded with electronic and photovoltaic capability. Electrochromic mirrors account for 90 percent of smart auto glass revenues today, but this percentage will have dropped to 67 percent by 2019.

Key factors promoting the use of smart automotive glass include enhanced energy efficiency, safety, comfort and style. These factors are not new to the auto industry but ongoing technology improvements allow smart glass firms to better create value with their products.

About the report:

In the report, NanoMarkets analyzes opportunities available for the following categories of smart auto glass: self-tinting glass (electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic and SPD), smart privacy glass, smart mirrors, self-cleaning glass, self-healing glass, device- embedded glass and retrofit window film. Addressable markets discussed include cars, trucks and various forms of public transportation.

The report includes eight-year forecasts of smart auto glass markets in volume (square meters) and value ($ million) terms. It also discusses adoption strategies for smart glass by major automobile/truck companies and the smart auto glass strategies of leading suppliers.

Firms covered in the report include: 3M, American Glass, Apple, ASG, Audi, AutoGlass, Balcony Systems, BASF, Bayer, BMW, Cardinal, Carlex, Chameleon Photochromic Smart Film, ChromoGenics, Corning, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Eastman Chemical/Solutia, GE, Gentex, Guardian, Hitachi, Hypho Technology, International Trading, Mercedes, NDFOS, NeoView Kolon, Nissan, NSG/Pilkington, Pleotint, PPG, Ravenbrick, Research Frontiers, Saint-Gobain, Samsung, Sage, Scienstry, Southwall, Solvay, Suntek, Toray, Transition Window Tint, SWITCH Materials, US e-Chromics, and View.

From the report:

Until recently - apart from electrochromic mirrors - smart auto glass consisted of passive self-tinting windows that adjusted to glare but provided no passenger or driver control so were of limited use. Passive self-tinting glass will continue to sell into the auto sector, but NanoMarkets expects that use of active thermochromic and SPD technologies that provide more control will grow and self-tinting windows will move beyond being just a design feature in expensive cars. As a result, the market for active self-tinting glass/ films will reach around $240 million by 2020.

Automotive windows have previously added intelligence with smart coatings such as electrochromic or self-cleaning materials. However, the latest generation of smart windows uses embedded electronics and photovoltaics as well. This trend is enabled by new solution processing techniques and thin-film devices and will add to the comfort and energy efficiency of cars. On-board photovoltaic capability can add to fuel efficiency by running lights and air conditioning. Windows and sunroofs can become soft cabin lights at night contributing to comfort and design appeal. Device-embedded auto glass is already available and is expected to become a $330 million market by 2020.

The report also notes that in the past "self-cleaning" and "self-healing" glass have really meant little more than short-lived wipe on coatings that facilitate washing off dirt or covering up scratches. New developments in advanced materials now hint at auto glass that actually self-repairs when cracked, while some glass firms look forward to when windshields will not need wipers. As a result, the market for self-healing and self-cleaning glass is expected to reach almost $420 million by 2020.
