The global Automotive Glass market size is expected to be worth around US$ 43.2 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Automotive Glass market size was valued at US$ 30.2 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Growing emphasis on electric vehicles and new norms such as BS VI in India which would bring Indian motor vehicle regulations into alignment with European Union regulations are anticipated to drive the automotive glass production across the forecast period.
Despite the decline in automotive production in 2018 and 2019, the market is expected to witness growth on account of the rise in production of commercial vehicles and increasing product demand from the aftermarket. The increasing number of vehicles on the road, along with growing accidents, drives the need for repair, maintenance, and replacement, which would subsequently drive the demand for glass.
Innovation and technological advancements are the key factors driving the market growth. Various technological advancements are being witnessed in the applications of automotive glass. For instance, new features were introduced in windshields and sunroofs for luxury cars in 2019. Growing demand for smart glass technology is likely to drive the product utilization in windshields over the forecast period.
Increasing demand for commercial transportation services such as buses and taxicabs are anticipated to boost the demand for light commercial vehicles (LCVs). In addition, rapid urbanization, improved road infrastructure, and supportive regulatory policies are expected to boost the demand for LCVs, thereby resulting in market growth.
Tempered automotive glass dominated the product segment, accounting for a share of 59.4%, in terms of volume, in 2019. Its large share is attributed to factors including low cost, high strength, and robustness. The product holds strength 4-5 times more than a basic float and is more cost-effective than laminated automotive glass. As a result, it is the most preferred type of glass in automotive, particularly for windows and backlites.
The laminated automotive glass segment is anticipated to register the highest growth in terms of revenue, with a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period. The structure consists of a PVB layer sandwiched between the two glass layers.
In terms of revenue, windscreen dominated the market in 2019 and this trend is anticipated to continue through the forecast period. Windscreen carries significant importance in a vehicle structure; hence, both automotive and glass manufacturers are engaged in developing new technologies for enhancing its appearance and features. For instance, introduction of new types of windshields with self-cleaning glass is anticipated to drive the segment growth over the forecast period.
On the basis of end use, the market is segmented into original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftersales replacement glass (ARG). OEM dominated the market in terms of volume in 2019, since a majority of automotive glass is used for the production of vehicles. The aftermarket segment is driven by factors such as high use of old vehicles, need for maintenance and upgradation for these vehicles, and increasing road accidents.
The OEM segment is anticipated to register a significant growth rate owing to the establishment of new automotive plants, particularly for electric vehicles. For instance, Tesla’s factory in Shanghai, China delivered its first 15 Model 3 cars in December 2019. The plant is expected to pace up its production in 2020 with an annual capacity of 150,000 Modern 3 cars. Moreover, in March 2019, Ford announced its plan for setting up a new facility in Michigan, U.S. for autonomous vehicles, which is expected to open by 2021.
Passenger cars emerged as the largest vehicle type segment in 2019 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4.6%, in terms of revenue, over the forecast period. This is attributed to factors such as changing consumer trends, increasing middle-class population, and growing environmental concerns pertaining to low-emission and lightweight vehicles on the roads.
Europe was the second-largest market in 2019 with a share of over 23.01% in terms of volume. New plants, favorable policies, innovations, and electric vehicles are driving the European market for automotive glass. Introduction of new electric vehicles would play a significant role in driving the demand for automotive glass since the number of available electric vehicle models is expected to reach 175 in 2020 and 330 in 2025 from less than 100 in 2019. Owing to the increased preference for sustainable vehicles in the region, electrical vehicles is expected to witness a growth rate of over 5.01% in countries such as U.K. by the end of 2020.
