“Increasing adoption of lightweight materials and growing market for sunroofs to drive the automotive polycarbonate glazing market”

The automotive polycarbonate glazing market is projected to reach USD 3.94 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 17.53% from 2016 to 2021. This growth can be attributed to the increasingly stringent emission norms, which have prompted OEMs to switch to lightweight materials. Additionally, the growing demand for luxury cars has increased the demand for sunroofs, which are a key application of polycarbonate glazing.

“Sidelite: the fastest-growing application market for polycarbonate glazing”

Sidelites are projected to constitute the largest application market for polycarbonate glazing by 2021. Other applications of polycarbonate include backlite, sunroof, and lighting. There are currently no restrictions on the use of polycarbonate in sidelites. Considering the current scenario, the use of polycarbonate sidelites in the automotive sector is bound to increase.

“Lighting: the largest application market for polycarbonate glazing in 2016”

Polycarbonate has replaced glass in automotive headlamp/tail lamp lens applications. Almost all vehicles manufactured today have headlamp/tail lamp lens made of polycarbonate, as it is lightweight and can be molded into the complex shapes and sizes featured in today’s headlamps. As every vehicle produced has a pair of headlamps and tail lamps, lighting is estimated to be the largest application market for polycarbonate glazing.

“Asia-Oceania: the largest market for automotive polycarbonate glazing”

Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, closely followed by North America. North America has one of the highest technology adoption rates, with newer technologies being adopted rapidly in the region. However, Asia-Oceania is the largest producer of automobiles in the world, and given the region’s low technology penetration rate, the Asia-Oceania automotive polycarbonate glazing market is expected to grow at a faster rate than that of the North American market.

The study also contains insights from various industry experts, ranging from industry associations to Tier-1 companies and OEMs. The break-up of the primaries is as follows:

- By Company Type - Tier-1 - 43 %, Tier-2 - 29%, OEM - 28%
- By Designation - C level - 48%, D level - 33%, Others - 19%
- By Region - North America - 34%, Europe - 30%, Asia-Oceania - 26%, RoW - 10%

Assuming a scenario where polycarbonate is allowed to be used in windscreen applications, advanced applications such as head-up displays and large windscreens would begin penetrating the market. Other advanced applications that are not dependent on market regulations, such as switchable glazing, hydrophobic glazing, and sun control glazing, are expected to slowly penetrate the market during the forecast period.

The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is estimated to be USD 1.75 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow to USD 3.94 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 17.53%. The increasing demand for lightweight materials and growing market for automotive sunroofs have fueled the growth of the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market.

The report segments the automotive polycarbonate glazing market by application (sidelite, backlite, sunroof, and lighting), by vehicle type (passenger car and light commercial vehicle), by region (North America, Europe, Asia-Oceania, and Rest of the Word), by off-highway application (window glazing and lighting) and by advanced application (head-up display, large windscreen, switchable glazing, hydrophobic glazing, and sun control glazing).

Sidelites are estimated to be the fastest-growing application market for polycarbonate glazing. Owing to their lightweight nature and ability to be molded into complex shapes, polycarbonate sidelites are gaining momentum in the automotive glazing market. Passenger cars are estimated to constitute the largest vehicle segment for polycarbonate glazing, due to the increasing adoption of sunroofs and panoramic roofs in mid-segment to premium cars. Sun control glazing is expected to be the largest advanced polycarbonate glazing application market. The market for advanced applications such as head-up displays and large windscreens is dependent on regulations permitting the use of polycarbonate in these applications.

Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for automotive polycarbonate glazing in 2016, owing to its high vehicle production and increasing demand for sunroofs. It is also projected to be the fastest-growing market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, with North America following at a close second. North America has a higher technology adoption rate, but due to the sheer volume of vehicles produced, Asia-Oceania is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period.

Factors restraining the growth of the automotive polycarbonate glazing market are the high cost of polycarbonate glazing and regulations prohibiting the use of polycarbonate in automotive windscreens. The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is dominated by major players such Freeglass GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Webasto SE (Germany), and SABIC (Saudi Arabia).

These companies have been focusing on developing new products and forming partnerships and collaborations with key OEMs to expand their presence in the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market. For instance, SABIC collaborated with Fiat (Italy) to provide polycarbonate sidelites for the Fiat 500 model. SABIC is a key player in this industry, as it is one of the largest manufacturers of polycarbonate resin in the world.

Exteneded Description

The primary objective of the study is to define and segment the polycarbonate glazing market for the automobile industry. The study analyzes and forecasts the market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, by volume (million m2) and value (USD million), on the basis of application, vehicle type, and region.

It studies the market for advanced applications of polycarbonate glazing, and determines the global market size for the same, by volume (‘000 vehicles). The study also includes an analysis of the off-highway polycarbonate glazing market, by application and region.

The research methodology used in the report involves various secondary sources, including paid databases and directories. Experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to understand the future trends of the automotive polycarbonate glazing market. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the market size, wherein country-wise vehicle production statistics have been taken into account for each vehicle type.

To arrive at the market size, in terms of volume, for polycarbonate glazing, the average surface area of glazing applications for each vehicle category has been identified and multiplied by vehicle production numbers to derive the region-wise market size, by volume. The region-wise market size, in terms of volume, of polycarbonate glazing for each vehicle type is then multiplied with the region-wise average original equipment (OE) price (AOP) of polycarbonate glazing. This results in the region-wise market size, in terms of value. The summation of the region-wise market leads to the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market.

The automotive polycarbonate glazing ecosystem includes resin manufacturers such as SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Covestro AG (Germany), Teijin Limited (Japan), and Trinseo S.A. (U.S.), glazing manufacturers such as Freeglass GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Webasto SE (Germany), and KRD Sicherheitstechnik GmbH (Germany), automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan), Volkswagen AG (Germany), and Ford Motor Company (U.S.), and institutes such as the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC), National Glass Association (NGA), Auto Glass Association (AGA), Australian Glass & Glazing Association (AGGA), European Glass and Glazing Association, and Independent Glass Association (IGA).

- Target Audience
- Manufacturers of automotive polycarbonate glazing
- Dealers and distributors of automotive polycarbonate glazing
- Industry associations
