A solar control glass refers to a uniquely treated glass that prevents the buildup of solar heat inside buildings and vehicles. Solar control glass significantly reduces the requirement for expensive air-conditioning or prominent window blinds. Automotive Solar Control Glass is classified into two major types, namely Absorbing Solar Control Glass and Reflective Solar Control Glass. The Automotive Solar Control Glass Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.91% during the forecast period 2020–2025. APAC is forecast to be the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 4.54% during the forecast period, which can be mainly attributed to the well-established automotive industry in the region.
Automotive Solar Control Glass Market Outlook
Automotive Solar control glass is a laminated glass with high amounts of iron content, which helps in absorbing the infrared rays and reducing the amount of heat in cars. Solar glass is majorly employed to reduce the solar energy entering the car, reduce the temperature inside the car, and reduce the load of the car’s air conditioning system, thus plummeting the car’s fuel intake, and reducing skin irritations caused to humans by sunlight.
The automotive solar control glass market report analyzes the different product types in the automotive solar control glass market. Reflective solar control glass has the highest share among the product types and is expected to reach $874m by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.00% during the forcast period.
Automotive Solar Control Glass Market Growth Drivers
The rise in demand for fuel-efficient cars is driving the demand for solar glass. The use of solar control glass in cars improves fuel efficiency, lowers carbon dioxide emissions, and reduces the usage of air conditioning by 10% to 15%. Keen interest shown by the regional governments in Europe to obtain compliance certificates with regard to the adherence to fuel efficiency is expected to additionally boost the market growth. The growth of the Electric vehicles sector is also projected to increase the demand for solar control glass in the near future.
Automotive Solar Control Glass Market Challenges
The increase in raw material prices is one of the major challenges that the automotive solar control glass market faces.. Raw materials such as silica sand, soda ash, silicates, and limestone used in the manufacture of glass are expensive. Out of the mentioned raw materials, soda ash is the most expensive raw material used in glass manufacturing, accounting for more than 50% of total cost of raw materials.
