Increasing adoption of sunroof and rear quarter glass in premium vehicles and SUVs will drive the automotive (polycarbonate) glazing market.

The global automotive glazing market size is estimated to be USD 1.0 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.9%. The demand for automotive glazing is driven by the increasing production of passenger cars and SUVs. This can be attributed to the high penetration of sunroof and rear quarter glass in premium vehicles. However, the high pricing of polycarbonate is hindering the growth of the automotive glazing market.

Construction equipment is estimated to have the largest share in the off-highway glazing market.
The construction equipment segment holds the largest market, in terms of value, for off-highway glazing in 2020.This can be attributed to the largest sales of construction equipment as compared to agricultural tractors.

Moreover, construction equipment has a higher penetration of polycarbonate glazing due to the ROPS and FOPS mandates.These mandates provide the required protection to equipment operators.

Increasing sales of construction equipment coupled with the strict ROPS and FOPS mandates are estimated to drive the glazing market for construction equipment.

Sidelite is estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment of the automotive glazing market.

The sidelite segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate, by application, during the forecast period.The major factor driving the demand for automotive glazing, by polycarbonate, is the growing focus on weight reduction by OEMs.

The polycarbonate usage in sidelite will reduce the weight significantly, especially in buses, as it covers the largest surface area.As per Arrow Global, an approximately 300-pound weight reduction per 40-feet can be achieved for buses by using polycarbonate instead of glass in sidelite and other glazing applications.

Apart from buses, passenger car is also estimated to witness a high adoption rate of polycarbonate sidelite. Such weight reduction may lead to fuel savings, which will drive the growth of polycarbonate in sidelite applications.

Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest automotive glazing market during the forecast period.
The Asia Oceania is projected to lead the automotive glazing market owing to high vehicle production as China and India are the production hub for passenger cars such as SUVs and premium cars.Moreover, Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest market because of highly populated countries such as China and India, coupled with high-income economies such as Japan and South Korea.

These factors have increased the production of premium vehicles in the region, which are estimated to have high polycarbonate usage in their glazing applications. Furthermore, the increasing disposable income in the region has led to increased demand for premium passenger cars, which is estimated to drive the overall demand for automotive glazing.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global automotive industry.The entire supply chain is disrupted due to a limited supply of parts.

For instance, Hubei province in China accounts for 8 -10% of the Chinese auto production and is impacted severely by pandemic.China suppliers around the globe placed production lines on halt or temporarily shut them down the production facilities.

Also, legal and trade restrictions, such as sealed borders, increased the shortage of required parts.Such disruption in the supply chain is expected to affect the assembly of OEMs in Europe and North America.

Thus, growth may have been derailed in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, as per estimates, the Asia Oceania will witness growth in the forecast period owing to the successful containment of the virus in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea
