Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Glass Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive glass market: Saint-Gobain, AGC Group, and NSG Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Fuyaogroup (Fuyao Group), GUARDIAN INDUSTRIES CORP, Pilkington, and Vitro.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is rising adoption of solar reflective glasses. Conventional glasses are increasingly being replaced by solar reflective glasses because of their advantages. Solar reflective glasses absorb infrared rays and reduces the amount of heat in the car. Passengers experience more comfort inside the car since the glasses reduce the effect of ultraviolet radiation on interior trims. Solar reflective glasses also enhance vehicle styling and fulfils the aesthetic aspiration of consumers.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing sales of passenger cars. The sales of automotive glass is positively correlated with the sales of passenger cars, as all passenger cars are equipped with glass as windshields and windows. Glasses in the passenger cars segment contribute to the majority of the global automotive glass market. The global car sales increased by around 3% in 2015 with SUVs and crossovers accounting for the majority of the sales in the Chinese and the European passenger cars market.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is growing concern of increased greenhouse gas emissions from automotive industry. Electricity production from burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas, is the major contributor for the emission of greenhouse gases. Around 30% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in the US is generated by the electricity production from fossil fuels in 2016. The second major contributor to greenhouse gases is the automotive industry. Approximately 26% of the total emitted greenhouse gas is from the transportation sector in 2016, which includes burning of fossil fuels from cars, trucks, buses, ships, planes, and trains.
