Glazing Market

Bus is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the automotive glazing market, by vehicle type, during the forecast period

As per MNM analysis, the average size of glazing for buses is highest than any other vehicle type. The average glazing area of the bus is 2 to 3 times more than passenger cars. This is because of the higher surface area of applications such as sidelite and windscreen. Buses account for the smallest share of global vehicle production. However, the polycarbonate usage in buses for glazing is estimated to have a high impact on their fuel efficiency. The increasing urbanization rate has increased the number of megacities resulting in the demand for cheap and faster travel. This why the production of buses is estimated to increase. Hence, the fuel efficiency impact coupled with increasing bus production is estimated to drive the automotive glazing market for buses at the highest CAGR.

Front lighting application is anticipated to be the largest segment of the automotive glazing market

All vehicles are equipped with front lighting; the average size of front lighting depends on the type of vehicle. Additionally, polycarbonate has 100% penetration in front lighting application from the last few years. Thus, the increasing vehicle production has a direct impact on the polycarbonate glazing market. Moreover, average lighting size has been increased owing to the DRL mandates. Increased average size coupled with the highest penetration of polycarbonate in lighting applications is estimated to drive the front lighting application segment.

BEV is estimated to be the fastest growing segment of the electric vehicle automotive glazing market during the forecast period

Because of stringent emission norms, the sale of electric vehicles has increased tremendously in the last few years. As per MarketsandMarkets analysis, this trend will drive the market for electric vehicles such as BEVs. BEVs are propelled by an electric motor and have high power rechargeable battery packs. Thus, weight reduction is the predominant criteria in BEVs. Therefore, polycarbonate glazing is expected to have a significant market share in BEVs. Additionally, a majority of BEVs fall under the premium vehicle category. So, safety and aesthetic features play an important role in these vehicles, which, in turn, are projected to drive the growth of the BEV segment at the highest CAGR in the automotive glazing market for electric vehicles.

Glazing Market

Asia Oceania expected to be the largest automotive glazing market

Asia Oceania is the largest automotive glazing market and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period. Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automotive production in recent years owing to the increasing population and urbanization. According to OICA, Asia Oceania accounted for ~46% of the global vehicle production in 2018 because of the presence of OEMs such as SAIC, Hyundai, Toyota, Suzuki, Tata, and Honda. Manufacturers in this region are focused on developing specific solutions that address fuel efficiency mandates. As consumers in the region are showing an increased inclination toward convenience and safety, it has witnessed higher growth than the matured markets of Europe and North America.

Market Size Estimation

Bottom-up approach

The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate and validate the size of the global market. The market size, by volume, of the automotive glazing market has been derived by identifying the region-wise installation rate of polycarbonate glazing based on application, namely, windscreen, sidelites, backlites, sunroof, and lighting (front and rear lighting) in passenger cars, LCVs, trucks, and buses. The average surface area of glazing applications has been considered in m2 and has been multiplied by the number of vehicles with polycarbonate glazing to derive the market size, in terms of volume. The market size, by value, is derived by multiplying the average selling price of polycarbonate glazing by m2. The total value of each component is added to derive the total size, in terms of value.
