The highly consolidated global automotive glass industry consists of both the original equipment market and aftermarket. China dominates the industry in terms of industry share. The global automotive glass industry is largely dominated by five leading companies: Nippon Sheet Glass, Asahi Glass Co. Ltd, Saint-Gobain SA, Fuyao Group Glass Industries Co. Ltd, and Guardian Industries.
Advancements in technology, intense competition, government policies, and safety regulations all are seen to impact industry dynamics significantly. The Asia Pacific (APAC) region drove the overall industry over the last five years. During 2009-2010, government tax incentive schemes on eco-friendly vehicles have boosted the demand for vehicles. China is one of the few markets in the world that has maintained growth during the global financial crisis. In terms of consumption and output, China is growing faster than 10% per year. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan sharply affected the demand of vehicles and components during the last half of 2011.
As per this study, the automakers are giving priority to heat resistant, soundproof cabins, thereby resulting in increased demand for lightweight glass varieties. Energy costs contribute for 30% of the total cost of manufacturing. Rising energy prices act as a challenge in the path of the industry’s growth.
