What is Automotive Glass? How Big is Automotive Glass Market Size?  

Vantage Market Research has released a new analysis of the Automotive Glass Market, provided an overview of the sector, and highlighted key trends. The report notes that the Automotive Glass Market industry is worth around USD 23.2 Billion as of 2021, with around 60% of that figure coming from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The aftermarket accounts for the remaining 40%.

OEMs are increasingly turning to laminated glass for vehicles, which offers better safety and acoustic properties than traditional tempered glass. However, this trend is offset by the fact that many consumers are opting for cheaper aftermarket options when replacing their car windows. One key challenge facing the Automotive Glass Market industry is the rise of electric vehicles. Electric vehicles have much smaller windows than traditional petrol or diesel cars, which could lead to a decline in demand for Automotive Glass Market.

The report found that the glass industry is currently in a state of transition, with traditional manufacturers struggling to keep up with the pace of change. In particular, the rise of electric vehicles presents a significant challenge, as traditional windshields are not designed to work with electric batteries. Furthermore, the report found that the Automotive Glass Market is consolidating, with a handful of large players accounting for an increasingly large share of the market. This consolidation is likely to continue in the future, as smaller manufacturers struggle to compete.

Overall, Vantage Market Research’s analysis paints a mixed picture of the future of the Automotive Glass Market. While there are challenges ahead, there are also opportunities for those companies that are willing to embrace change.

Autonomous Vehicle and Ride Sharing to Pose Challenge for Automotive Glass Market Growth

The trend towards autonomous vehicles is likely to have a major impact on the market, as these vehicles will require different types of sensors and windows. This could create opportunities for companies that are able to provide innovative solutions.

The rise of ride-sharing services is another factor that is set to change the landscape of the Automotive Glass Market. As fewer people own cars, there will be less demand for replacement windows and windshields. This could lead to consolidation in the industry, as smaller players struggle to compete.

However, windshields are expected to remain the largest segment of the market throughout the forecast period due to their importance in protecting occupants from external elements such as weather conditions and debris. In terms of vehicle type, passenger cars are expected to continue to dominate the market due to their high production volumes relative to commercial vehicles.

Key Insights and Findings from the In-depth Report:

  • Among Glass Type segment, the Tempered Glass segment is anticipated to dominate the Automotive Glass Market. This is due to the factors such as high strength, robustness, and low cost.
  • The Moon/Sun Roof segment, of the Application segment, accounted for the largest market share. It supplies more control to the user for managing natural light in the vehicle. This segment will likely prosper owing to the integration of sunroofs in affordable cars.
  • Asia Pacific held the Automotive Glass Market share and is anticipated to be the most lucrative market during the forecast period. This surge is because of several Automotive Glass manufacturers and mounting automotive production in this region.
