The trends positively influencing the market forecast are explained below:

Demand for laminated automotive glass gains traction:

Laminated automotive glass is set to hold nearly 60% share of North America market by 2027. Laminated glass offers a rich finish to vehicles and several OEMs are increasingly using side glazing while manufacturing automobiles. Laminated side glazing offers many benefits to vehicles, including resistance against scratches and impact. It is also highly durable and offers strong UV protection, thereby fostering their demand among end-users.

Use of automotive glass in passenger cars rises:

North America automotive glass market size from passenger cars will showcase 7% CAGR over 2021-2027. The demand for pick-up vans, three-wheelers, and trucks for transporting goods and raw materials from one place to the other is steadily growing.

Moreover, an increasing number of people are migrating from rural to urban areas in search of employment. It will augment the adoption of light commercial vehicles to transport household goods, thereby boosting the use of automotive glass in these vehicles.

Automotive glass finds robust application in windscreen production:

Windscreen applications held more than 40% share of North America automotive glass market in 2020. A major reason behind this is the high use of laminated and tempered glasses to produce windshields. However, windscreens with laminated glass are more expensive as compared to their counterparts, which will affect their demand. Many organizations are consistently introducing innovative technologies to enhance the driving experience of customers, thereby fueling the use of automotive glass to make high-quality windshields.
