Global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is estimated to grow with approx. 14.71% CAGR during the year 2019-2027 and is expected to gain $ 6366 million until the year 2027. The termed glazing stands for installation of windows and installing windows in a vehicle are called automotive glazing. Most commonly used material used in automotive glazing is glass. In the recent times, plastics and more specifically polycarbonates are being applied instead of glass for automotive glazing. The actual purpose behind the application of polycarbonates in place of glass is due to the material properties of polycarbonates. It is comparatively easy to shape glazing components made of polycarbonates than that of glass. The polycarbonates have better thermal stability as compared to glass. It is a fact that fuel efficiency of a vehicle is inversely proportional to its weight. The weight of polycarbonate materials is substantially less than glass which can help in increasing fuel efficiency of the vehicle and reduce emission. Sunroofs help in letting light inside a vehicle. Covering of vehicle roof by a transparent material which lets more light to enter the vehicle are known as panoramic sunroofs. Use of polycarbonate materials instead of glass in panoramic sunroofs helps in reducing the weight of the vehicle substantially.

Global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is primarily driven by the following factors:

  • Strict carbon emission rules & regulations due to environmental concerns
  • Rising demand for lightweight glazing
  • Increasing demand for sunroofs in cars
  • Growth in automotive sales

One of the important drivers is strict carbon emission regulations. With rapid developments in automobile technologies, conventional glass materials were replaced by high-performance materials including polycarbonates which possess the property of less weight compared to glass materials. The impact of using polycarbonates for automotive component manufacturing was observable as it decreased the overall weight of automobiles to a great extent (almost by 40%), thus reducing the fuel usage.

The automotive polycarbonate glazing market is segmented on the basis of vehicle type where they are further classified into passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle. A passenger vehicle is the highest contributing segment with 76.58% share. The key areas for glazing in passenger vehicle include windscreens, panoramic roofs, side and rear windows. Polycarbonate sheets are used as an alternative to glass materials used in vehicles owing to properties of polycarbonate materials such as high impact resistance, better thermal properties, light weight and many more. Global passenger vehicle market is primarily driven by increasing sales of passenger cars along with increasing interest of passenger car manufacturers towards the use of polycarbonate materials.

The high cost of polycarbonate glazing and strict regulations pertaining to the use of polycarbonate for windscreen are the major factors hindering the automotive polycarbonate glazing market. Various regulations regarding use of specific laminated, tempered glass in automobiles are expected to increase the cost of polycarbonate glazing in automotive.

The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market segments include vehicle type, application and region.

Product type is segmented into:

  • Passenger Vehicle
  • Commercial Vehicle

Application is segmented into:

  • Side Window
  • Front Windshield
  • Sunroof
