Aftermarket Automotive Direct Glazing Adhesives Market—North American Outlook and Trends

Aftermarket Automotive Direct Glazing Adhesives Market—North American Outlook and Trends

The demand for direct glazing (DGX) adhesives in the automotive aftermarket in North America was valued at $􂀀 million (􂀀 million standardized 􂀀 oz. cartridges) in 2014. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 􂀀% (by revenue) and 􂀀% (by unit shipment) between 2014 and 2021.

Demand from the automotive aftermarket and OEM segments for high-performance DGX adhesives is driven by regulatory trends toward vehicle driver and occupant safety.

Compliance with crashworthiness Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) of the vehicle, by model and material handling factors at aftermarket replacement levels, are technologically intensive and differentiate the leading suppliers from others.

The North American DGX adhesives market is dominated by the top 􂀀 multinational suppliers with established brand image among aftermarket entities.

Establishing strong product lines of OEM-specified DGX adhesives compatible with various kinds of auto glazing and vehicle model assemblies is a critical competitive factor. Suppliers to the OEM segment can then leverage their products in the aftermarket segment to ensure brand longevity.

Maintaining testing laboratories and employing independent crash test facilities to evaluate DGX adhesive performance (modulus, curing, safe drive-away times, viscosity, with or without primers) are important investment decisions.
