$2.7 Bn Automotive Glazing Market by Polycarbonate-Application, Advanced Applications, Vehicle Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025

(MENAFN - GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) itemprop="articleBody">

Dublin, Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automotive Glazing Market by Polycarbonate-Application , Advanced Applications, Vehicle Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The automotive glazing market is estimated to be USD 1.4 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.13%.

The demand for automotive glazing is driven by the increasing production of passenger cars and SUVs. This can be attributed to the high penetration of sunroof and rear quarter glass in premium vehicles. However, the high pricing of polycarbonate is hindering the growth of automotive glazing market.

Construction equipment is estimated to have the largest share in the off-highway glazing market.

The construction equipment segment held the largest market, in terms of value, for off-highway glazing in 2018. This can be attributed to the largest sales of construction equipment as compared to agricultural tractors. Moreover, construction equipment has a higher penetration of polycarbonate glazing due to the ROPS and FOPS mandates. These mandates provide the required protection to equipment operators. Increasing sales of construction equipment coupled with the strict ROPS and FOPS mandates are estimated to drive the glazing market for construction equipment.

Sidelite is estimated to be the fastest growing automotive glazing market, by application.

The sidelite segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate, by application, during the forecast period. The major factor driving the demand for automotive glazing, by polycarbonate, is the growing focus on weight reduction by OEMs. The polycarbonate usage in sidelite will reduce the weight significantly, especially in buses, as it covers the largest surface area. As per Arrow Global, an approximate 300-pound weight reduction per 40-feet can be achieved for buses by using polycarbonate instead of glass in sidelite and other glazing applications. Apart from buses, passenger car is also estimated to witness a high adoption rate of polycarbonate sidelite. Such weight reduction may lead to fuel savings, which will drive the growth of polycarbonate in sidelite applications.

Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest automotive glazing market during the forecast period.

The Asia Oceania is projected to lead the automotive glazing market owing to high vehicle production as China and India are the production hub for passenger cars such as SUVs and premium cars. Moreover, Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest market because of highly populated countries such as China and India coupled with high-income economies such as Japan and South Korea. These factors have increased the production of premium vehicles in the region which are estimated to have high polycarbonate usage in their glazing applications. Furthermore, the increasing disposable income in the region has led to increased demand for premium passenger cars, which is estimated to drive the overall demand for automotive glazing.

The key players in the automotive glazing market are SABIC (Suadi Arabia), Covestro (Germany), Teijin (Japan) Webasto (Germany) Freeglass (Germany), and Idemitsu (Japan).
