Increasing automobile sales and surge in research and development investment across the world to drive global automotive glazing market.

According to TechSci Research report “Automotive Glazing Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2016-2026”, the global automotive glazing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.55% in value terms in the next five years to reach USD24,353.29 million by 2026. The growing production of vehicles and booming demand for passenger safety is aggravating the demand for automotive glazing as it acts as a safety shield for the vehicles at the time of collision.

Automotive glazing is one of the crucial components of automobiles and is generally incorporated in windshields, sidelights, and sunroofs in some vehicles. Automobile manufacturers are also adding a roof support structure made of glazing on either side of the rear window known as the C pillar window.  The improved product offering is the primary reason for the addition of sunroofs in vehicles, and therefore there is a common trend to implement them in premium passenger cars. Increased installation or adoption of sunroof feature in vehicle is bolstering the growth of the automotive glazing market.

Many automotive manufactures are using coating in windshield glasses to protect vehicles from harmful radiations of infrared and UV rays. Reflective coatings are done in front and back of windshields. To protect the vehicle from UV and Infrared rays, ceramic coatings are done between the layers of the windshield glasses. These coatings last around 1-3 years in any vehicle therefore, there will be a need to change the glazing of the glass or replace it with the new one. So, the need to change the coating in vehicles over a certain period is propelling the growth of the automotive glazing market.
