This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Automotive Glass Market is accounted for $17.26 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $30.43 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors influencing the market growth include increasing applications of glass & penetration of smart glass, increasing vehicle production & sales, and government regulations for vehicle safety. However, the high initial capital cost required for setting up an automotive glass plant is restraining the market growth.

Automotive glass is one of the key components of an automobile vehicle, which not only offers safety to the passengers but also provides better aerodynamics to the vehicle and helps in reducing fuel consumption. It protects both passengers and the structure of the vehicle by keeping them safe from the external obstacles. It is developed with the emergence of innovative features including protection from external temperature changes, external noise and better visibility. 

Based on the glass type, laminated glass is estimated to have significant growth during the forecast period, due to increasing use of laminated glass in sidelites. Laminated glass in the windshield has a PVB layer sandwiched between the glasses. Laminated side glazing improves safety and NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) of the vehicle.

By Geography, The Asia Pacific is expected to have a lucrative growth due to the improving socio-economic conditions in emerging economies such as China and India. The growth in population in these countries has resulted in increased vehicle production and vehicle parc. This has resulted in increased demand for automotive glass. The consumer preference for SUV in India and China is also driving this market as the volume of glass required in SUV is significantly more than that in sedans and other passenger cars.
