Automotive Glazing Market Evaluation, Competition Tracking & Regional Analysis:(2019-2027)

The larger issues of air pollution and carbon emission have had an indisputable impact on the automotive industry, as stakeholders continually work toward the development of better, lighter, and safer components for cars. The influence of this has led to manufacturers in the global automotive glazing market also taking steps to improve existing products and develop new ones that are aimed at reducing the weight of cars, thereby making them more fuel-efficient.


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2019 -- The Automotive Glazing Market is estimated to be driven primarily by the usage of polycarbonate in headlights and the increasing production of sunroof and rear quarter glass-equipped premium vehicles such as sedans and SUVs. The increasing demand for complex glazing design and lightweight vehicles is also driving the growth of the automotive glazing market for polycarbonate.

As per WMR analysis, the average size of glazing for buses is highest than any other vehicle type. The average glazing area of the bus is 2 to 3 times more than passenger cars. This is because of the higher surface area of applications such as side lite and windscreen. Buses account for the smallest share of global vehicle production. However, the polycarbonate usage in buses for glazing is estimated to have a high impact on their fuel efficiency.
