The Automotive Glazing Market is Estimated to be $1.4 Billion in 2018 and is Projected to Reach $2.7 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.13% - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 21, 2019--

The “Automotive Glazing Market by Polycarbonate-Application , Advanced Applications, Vehicle Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The study estimates and projects the automotive glazing market, by application (windscreen, sidelite, backlite, sunroof, rear quarter glass, and lighting application (exterior)), vehicle type (passenger car, bus, truck, and LCV), electric and hybrid vehicle type (BEV, PHEV, and HEV), off-highway vehicle type (agricultural tractors and construction equipment), and region (Asia Oceania, Europe, North America, and RoW).

The regional market for Asia Oceania is further segmented into India, Japan, China, South Korea, and the Rest of Asia Oceania. Europe is segmented into Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe. North America is segmented into the US, Mexico, and Canada whereas the RoW is segmented into Brazil and South Africa.

Asia Oceania is projected to hold the largest market share and is projected to grow from USD 656.5 million in 2018 to USD 1,310.7 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.38%. Factors such as increasing vehicle production and increased demand for premium vehicles have triggered the demand for the automotive glazing market in the region. China accounts for the largest market share of 27.63% of the global automotive glazing market, which can be attributed to the ever-growing production of passenger cars in the country and the use of polycarbonate in exterior lighting for all vehicle types.

Asia Oceania accounts for nearly 50% of the polycarbonate production in the world. The region is home to key OEMs such as Toyota, GLM, and Honda that have launched vehicles with polycarbonate glazing. For instance, Tommykaira ZZ adopted the first polycarbonate windscreen supplied by Teijin. These developments are expected to help Asia Oceania dominate the automotive glazing market in the near future.

The applications of polycarbonate comprise exterior lighting covers, sidelite, backlite, windscreen, sunroof, and rear quarter glass. The sunroof and rear quarter glass segments have a significant penetration of polycarbonate, while sidelite, backlite, and windscreen have a low penetration of polycarbonate. The front lighting application has 100% penetration of polycarbonate.

It is projected to be the largest segment, by application, in the global automotive glazing market and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.31%, by value, during the forecast period. The growth of front lighting is mainly driven by the dominance of polycarbonate in the automotive glazing market. All the vehicle types are equipped with polycarbonate lighting covers.
