The automotive smart glass market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.46% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 25.12 billion by 2021. The major drivers of this market are the increasing global vehicle production, progressively stringent safety regulations, changing consumer preferences, and demand for lightweight glass that increases the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Upcoming smart glass technologies are contributing to the growth of the automotive glass market, as smart glass provides benefits such as enhanced visibility, protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays, and increased comfort.

Laminated glass is the fastest growing segment globally, in terms of volume. Laminated glass primarily finds application in the windscreen of a vehicle. Numerous advancements related to laminated windscreens are being introduced in the market; for instance, Pilkington (a wholly owned subsidiary of Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Ltd.) has developed Optiphon, a high-quality acoustic laminated glass that provides efficient noise reduction and consequently helps reduce the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels in a vehicle. The growing trend of laminated side glazing is driving the demand for automotive glass. Certain European OEMs have standardized side glazing in some of their top-selling vehicles. For instance, models such as Citroλn C6, Peugeot 407 and 607, Jaguar XJ, and Mercedes-Benz S-class are equipped with laminated side glazing as a standard feature.

Suspended particle device (SPD) is the fastest growing technology in the automotive smart glass market. SPD technology gives the user substantial control over the natural light, heat, and temperature in a vehicle. The technology has been adopted by Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz in sunroof applications. Favorable government policies, the presence of established industry players, and the high demand for energy-efficient products are also spurring the growth of the SPD glass market.

Asia-Oceania is estimated to dominate the automotive glass market, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be credited to the improving socio-economic conditions in emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia, and Thailand. The sizeable populations in countries such as China and India have resulted in an increased vehicle parc, which has boosted the demand for automotive glass. Automotive glass production is consequently high in Asia-Oceania, with China and India expected to be the most promising markets for the same. The rising production levels are accompanied by a growing inclination towards comfort and luxury and an increasing demand for the lightweight automotive glass supplied by manufacturers such as Saint-Gobain S.A. (France) and Asahi Glass Co. Ltd. (Japan).

Automotive Glass Market

A key factor restraining the growth of the automotive glass market is the high cost of smart glass, which restricts the use of this technology in entry-level and mid-segment vehicles and limits its widespread adoption to premium luxury vehicles. The automotive glass market is dominated by a few global players, and comprises several regional players. Some of the key manufacturers operating in the market are Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. (Japan), Asahi Glass Co., Ltd. (Japan), Saint-Gobain S.A. (France), Fuyao Glass Industry Group Ltd. (China), and Magna International Inc. (Canada).
