Research and Markets: Automotive Window and Exterior Sealing Systems

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/js49xz/automotive_window) has announced the addition of the "Automotive Window and Exterior Sealing Systems" report to their offering.

The automotive market is likely to undergo a major paradigm shift over the next few years as fuel economy takes a renewed urgency for conventional and alternative powertrains from 2017-2025. This change will require many modifications to the design, material selection and operation of current day vehicles. Windows and sealing systems are no exception especially with respect to mass reduction, insulation against high and low ambient temperatures and acoustic performance. These macro changes, together with supply structure and technological developments, led The ITB Group to complete its fourth window and sealing report in 2011.

Highlights of this new report include:

- Business Dynamics - The window and sealing market has witnessed a number of major changes in the supply base over the last three years. These changes began prior to the economic crisis of 2008/2009 and accelerated in 2011. These highlighted developments include ownership changes especially amongst roof system and weatherstrip suppliers, as Chinese and Indian investors acquire distressed European operations.

- Government Regulations - A number of legislative changes have been sought by government authorities that impact the glazing on the vehicles. These include the consolidation of Federal and ARB rulemakings for 2017 onward, and these will attempt to curtail thermal loads, reduce mass, and optimize HVAC operation.
