It is specially treated to protect vehicle passengers from the elements. Automotive Glass is manufactured into two types of safety glass to protect both the vehicle’s structure and the occupants inside. The first type is called laminated glass, which is for the windshield. The second glass is tempered glass, used for the vehicle’s side and back windows. This glass keeps you inside the car in an accident, shields you from flying sharp glass, retains the roof’s rigidity in a rollover, and allows the side airbag to protect you when deployed.

Industry Demand:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles. In line with this, manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles are advancing due to a focus on pollution control and strict environmental restrictions, which is encouraging market growth. Furthermore, the development of cost-effective glass for automotive has been driven by the stabilization of glass prices, such as soda ash, lime, oxides of magnesium, potassium, and aluminum, as well as increasing gasoline prices. Apart from this, rising demand for vehicles in the transportation and logistics market and a focus on enhancing vehicle aerodynamics due to safety standards are positively influencing the market. The expansion of this market is being catalyzed by an increase in the sale of crossovers and SUVs, as well as inflating disposable income, particularly in developing countries. Moreover, the adoption of smart glass is creating a positive outlook for the market.

The growing use of sunroof glass in high-end vehicles, rising glass adoption, and the development of new iterations of glass design are other growth-inducing factors. Besides, consumers’ high living standards and rapid urbanization are propelling the market. The demand for luxury cars is significantly contributing to the need for automotive glass. To improve safety and the overall appearance of luxury vehicles, expensive automotive glass has been deployed extensively. Rapid growth in the transportation and logistics sector is strengthening the production of heavy-duty vehicles, which, in turn, is favoring the market. Additionally, growing emphasis on lightweight cars on account of rising harmful emissions from vehicles that have an adverse effect on the environment drives the glass penetration in the automotive industry.
