The automotive industry is one of the key contributors to the overall GDP of the world and is growing significantly over the years. Growing economy and improving demographics have surged the demand for vehicles across the globe. As the demand for vehicles is growing, the demand for automotive components is also increasing significantly, especially in countries such as China and India. Also, new vehicle model launches and the increasing demand for premium and luxury segment cars have increased the demand for exterior components, such as a windshield. The automotive windshield provides an efficient aerodynamic design, clear visibility, and protection from debris, unwanted particles, ultraviolet (UV) rays, and harmful radiation.

The global market is estimated to be USD 14.27 Billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.28% to reach USD 23.24 Billion by the end of 2025. Some of the major drivers identified are the growing vehicle production and the increasing use of windshield for the latest display technologies. The growth of the global automotive industry is expected to fuel the growth of the automotive windshield market. Technologies, such as smart displays and driver assistance functions, are now getting incorporated in the mid-segment and economy vehicles. The market for these latest display technologies on the windshield is driven by the increased awareness of road and vehicle safety.

The global market is segmented by windshield position, glass type, material type, vehicle type, electric vehicle type, and region. The report discusses two windshield positions, namely, front windshield and rear windshield. The laminated glass market accounted for the largest market shares in this market and is estimated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the laminated glass segment is expected to be driven by the increasing use of solar reflective windshields glazing on windshields and for the latest display technologies.  Also, to understand the type of material, the report discusses the market for automotive windshield under two distinctive type of materials, namely, thermoset material and thermoplastic material. Further, to understand the market in different vehicle segments, the market is segmented into Passenger Car (PC), Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV), and Heavy Commercial Vehicle (HCV). The study also segments the automotive windshield market by electric vehicle into Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV). The extensive study has been done on four key regions, namely, Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World (RoW).

The automotive windshield market for laminated glass is estimated to account for largest shares in the global automotive windshield market estimated in 2017. Tempered glass is estimated to be the second largest segment of this market. The global market for laminated glass segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period due to the increasing use of laminated glass for protection against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Various automotive glass manufacturers such as Asahi Glass (Japan), Nippon Sheet Glass (Japan), and Central Glass (Japan), especially in Asia Pacific, are offering customized windshields to vehicles manufacturers.

Asia Pacific is estimated to account for the largest market share followed by North America, Europe, and RoW, respectively. Asia Pacific is anticipated to remain predominant during the forecast period due to numerous factors such as increasing number of vehicle production, use of solar reflective glasses in vehicles, use of safety glasses, such as laminated and tempered glass. In terms of growth rate, Asia Pacific is estimated to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in Asia Pacific is anticipated to be driven by the increasing number of commercial vehicles production and the growing use of premium segment cars.

Automotive Windshield Market

Restraint identified in the global market is the high cost of smart windshields. The automotive industry is slowly adopting newer technologies as the end-users are willing to pay a premium for enhanced comfort and luxury. Most end-users are still not aware of the benefits of the smart windshield, making this high cost unjustified for them. The rising prices of raw materials used for glass manufacturing, coupled with a reduction in the supply of fuel such as sodium carbonate and natural gas, have been haunting glass manufacturers and ultimately windshield manufacturers. These price fluctuations have been negatively influencing the automotive glass market. This factor may pose a challenge for the growth of the automotive windshield market to some extent.

Some of the major players in the global market are Asahi Glass (Japan), Saint-Gobain (France), Nippon Sheet Glass (Japan), Sisecam Group (Turkey), and Central Glass (Japan). The last chapter of this report covers a comprehensive study of the key vendors operating in the automotive windshield market. The evaluation of market players is done by taking various factors into account, such as new product development, R&D expenditure, business strategies, product revenue, and organic and inorganic growth.
