Asia Oceania: Fastest growing market for Automotive Glass

Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest automotive glass market and is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the improving socio-economic conditions in emerging economies such as China and India. The growth in population in these countries has resulted in increased vehicle production and vehicle parc. This has resulted in increased demand for automotive glass. The consumer preference for SUVs in India and China is also driving this market as the volume of glass required in SUVs is significantly more than that in sedans and other passenger cars.

Laminated Glass is the fastest-growing segment in Automotive Glass Market

Laminated glass is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Laminated glass in the windshield has a PVB layer sandwiched between the glass. It protects passengers from broken glass fragments and provides increased safety compared with tempered glass. The increasing use of laminated glass on the sidelines (in addition to the windshield) is expected to drive the growth of the laminated glass market. While European vehicle manufacturers have started using side glazing, automotive manufacturers in the US and Japan are also following suit. Laminated side glazing improves the safety and NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) of the vehicle.

The Rearview mirror is the largest segment of the device embedded automotive glass market

Rearview mirror is among the first applications of device embedded glass in passenger cars. It not only provides important information to the driver when parking the vehicle but also warns about any obstacle approaching the vehicle from behind. Technological advancements by Gentex (US) and Samvardhana Motherson (India) have ensured that device embedded rearview mirrors are available at an economical price point.

A sunroof is projected to remain the largest market for smart glass in automotive

The sunroof is the largest and fastest-growing smart glass application in the automotive smart glass market. It provides more control to the user to manage natural light in the vehicle. Smart glass technology in sunroof is being used by Daimler and Mercedes-Benz models such as SL, SLK series. Technological advancements, the presence of interested industry players, and the high demand for energy-efficient products also play an important role in the growth of the market for sunroofs made of smart glass.
