Key Market Trends

Increasing Application of Glass in Automobiles

Increasing usage of sunroof glass, particularly in high-end vehicles, is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the automotive glass market. Nowadays, consumers are showing preference toward a sunroof in the car, which has lead to an increase in the utilization of glass. Installation of the sunroof is now not only limited to the luxury car segment, but has also been introduced to the other segments, by car manufacturers, like Honda and Toyota. In addition, advancements in vehicle design have led to an increase in the size of the windshield and side windows, thereby leading to the overall development of the industry.

Smart glass has been forecast as the future of the automotive industry. Most of the research has been directed toward improving and making smart glass applicable to mainstream vehicles. It can be used to provide a head-up display in the automobiles, just like in the glass cockpit of a helicopter. This makes accessibility to all the controls much more comfortable, and also enhances the ambiance of the vehicle. Manufacturers, like Mercedes and Volvo, are putting in a lot of effort to make this into a reality, in automobiles.

Asia-Pacific - Expected to be the Fastest Growing Region

Countries in the Asia-Pacific region, like China and India, are forecast to be the fastest growing automotive glass markets. Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market are a rise in sales of passenger cars in the ASEAN countries, increasing sales of luxury cars in China and India, and the increasing demand and preference for a sunroof in the vehicles (aftermarket segment, especially for low-cost vehicles). China, despite a struggling economy (for last few years), is expected to continue to be the driver of the market, with Japan being the hub of technology in the automotive sector. These are driving the growth of the Asian market's car segment. Some of the other rising markets in the Asian region are Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
