Automotive Polycarbonate Glazing Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2027

The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market size is poised to reach US$ 4.4 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is likely to be driven by the demand for fuel-efficient cars. Polycarbonate materials are easier to shape as compared to glass, when used in applications for automotive glazing. Polycarbonate glazed components and parts offer superior thermal strength as compared to that offered by glass; however, they weigh less. Rising vehicle sales and growing stringency in emission norms are expected to drive the automotive polycarbonate glazing market.

Since consumers resonate better with features over functions, automotive sunroofs are gradually being a viable proposition in vehicles. Since the glass used for sunroofs, windshields, and other parts of an automotive are highly susceptible to damage during a road mishap, numerous vehicle safety protocols require automakers to incorporate only tampered glass, laminated glass, and glass plastic. However, to ensure complete safety, automakers are evincing high reliance on automotive polycarbonate glazing as a replacement to traditional glass, which is likely to create sustainable growth opportunities for the industry.

Environmental Concerns of Polycarbonates Despite Adoption in Electric Vehicles

Recently, Toyota announced that the company will begin testing a solar roof that has the capacity of adding as much as 45 Km to an electric vehicle a day, using solar cells. These solar cells that are merely 0.03 mm thick, and deliver around 860 watts of power, and even possess the competency to charge the EV while it is being driven. With shifting focus towards solar energy as a source of fuel to drive the penetration of futuristic cars, panels manufactured from polycarbonate will remain integral in underpinning this movement.

However, polycarbonate is but a form of plastic from the polymer family, with its own environmental concerns. Increasing awareness among companies and government entities regarding the environment implications of polycarbonates drives their attention towards the environmental performance of their business operations. A check on carbon footprints has instigated numerous countries such as the U.S., and Japan to implement a ban on the use of polycarbonates for automotive glazing, which will act as a throttle to the growth of the global market.
