DUBLIN--()--The "Global Automotive Polycarbonate Glazing Market 2019-2027" report has been added to's offering.


The global market for automotive polycarbonate glazing would witness 7.82% of CAGR over the forecasting years 2019-2027.

The process of installing windows is known as glazing. The installation of windows in vehicles is called automotive glazing. Traditionally, glass has been the most common material used for automotive glazing. Though, recent years have seen the application of plastics, particularly polycarbonates, in place of glass for the purpose of automotive glazing. In the automotive sector, polycarbonate glazing is used for panoramic roofs, windscreens, and side and rear windows.

The growth of the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is being driven by the rise in the popularity of lightweight glazing, strict rules and regulations concerning carbon emissions due to climate change, and the increase in the use of sunroofs in cars. The growing popularity of the electric vehicle market and the advancements in automotive design are potential opportunities for the growth of the market. The escalating costs of automotive polycarbonate glazing and regulations regarding the application of polycarbonate for windscreens, however, are major restraining factors for the market. Moreover, factors such as the unstable political & territorial situations are challenging the market growth for the automotive polycarbonate glazing market.


The market for automotive polycarbonate glazing spans across the regions of Latin America, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific.

The market for automotive polycarbonate glazing in the Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market globally, during the forecast years. The stringent regulations by the government regarding carbon emissions, vehicular weight, and fuel efficiency are the primary driving factors of the APAC market. Moreover, the increase in vehicle production, coupled with the wide-scale adoption of lightweight materials in the automotive industry, are also estimated to augment the automotive polycarbonate glazing market growth in the Asia-Pacific over the forecast period from 2019-2027.

The company offers a wide range of highly functional components & materials for developing eco-friendly products such as polycarbonate glass for the automotive sector for the purpose of vehicle weight reduction.
