The automotive polycarbonate glazing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.53% from 2016 to 2021, to reach USD 3.94 Billion by 2021. The report considers 2014 as the historic year, 2015 as the base year, 2016 as the estimated year, and 2016 to 2021 as the forecast period.

Objectives of the study:

The primary objective of the study is to define and segment the polycarbonate glazing market for the automobile industry. The study analyzes and forecasts the market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, by volume (million m2) and value (USD million), on the basis of application, vehicle type, and region. It studies the market for advanced applications of polycarbonate glazing, and determines the global market size for the same, by volume (‘000 vehicles). The study also includes an analysis of the off-highway polycarbonate glazing market, by application and region.

The research methodology used in the report involves various secondary sources, including paid databases and directories. Experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to understand the future trends of the automotive polycarbonate glazing market. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the market size, wherein country-wise vehicle production statistics have been taken into account for each vehicle type.

To arrive at the market size, in terms of volume, for polycarbonate glazing, the average surface area of glazing applications for each vehicle category has been identified and multiplied by vehicle production numbers to derive the region-wise market size, by volume. The region-wise market size, in terms of volume, of polycarbonate glazing for each vehicle type is then multiplied with the region-wise average original equipment (OE) price (AOP) of polycarbonate glazing. This results in the region-wise market size, in terms of value. The summation of the region-wise market leads to the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market. The figure below provides a break-up of the profile of industry experts who participated in primary discussions.

    The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is estimated to be USD 1.75 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow to USD 3.94 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 17.53%. The increasing demand for lightweight materials and growing market for automotive sunroofs have fueled the growth of the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market.

    The report segments the automotive polycarbonate glazing market by application (sidelite, backlite, sunroof, and lighting), by vehicle type (passenger car and light commercial vehicle), by region (North America, Europe, Asia-Oceania, and Rest of the Word), by off-highway application (window glazing and lighting) and by advanced application (head-up display, large windscreen, switchable glazing, hydrophobic glazing, and sun control glazing). Sidelites are estimated to be the fastest-growing application market for polycarbonate glazing. Owing to their lightweight nature and ability to be molded into complex shapes, polycarbonate sidelites are gaining momentum in the automotive glazing market. Passenger cars are estimated to constitute the largest vehicle segment for polycarbonate glazing, due to the increasing adoption of sunroofs and panoramic roofs in mid-segment to premium cars. Sun control glazing is expected to be the largest advanced polycarbonate glazing application market. The market for advanced applications such as head-up displays and large windscreens is dependent on regulations permitting the use of polycarbonate in these applications.

    Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for automotive polycarbonate glazing in 2016, owing to its high vehicle production and increasing demand for sunroofs. It is also projected to be the fastest-growing market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, with North America following at a close second. North America has a higher technology adoption rate, but due to the sheer volume of vehicles produced, Asia-Oceania is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

    Glazing Market

    Factors restraining the growth of the automotive polycarbonate glazing market are the high cost of polycarbonate glazing and regulations prohibiting the use of polycarbonate in automotive windscreens.   The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is dominated by major players such Freeglass GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Webasto SE (Germany), and SABIC (Saudi Arabia). These companies have been focusing on developing new products and forming partnerships and collaborations with key OEMs to expand their presence in the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market. For instance, SABIC collaborated with Fiat (Italy) to provide polycarbonate sidelites for the Fiat 500 model. SABIC is a key player in this industry, as it is one of the largest manufacturers of polycarbonate resin in the world.
