Key Findings

High Demand for Glass Automotive Windshield

Manufacturers are inclined toward using glass material for the automotive windshield on the back of the high durability and strength offered by the glass.

Moreover, with the introduction of gorilla glass in the automotive space, demand for automotive windshields made from glass is expected to fuel at a significant pace during the forecast period. In case of accidents, a glass automotive windshield can prevent major debris from entering the vehicle ensuring the safety of passengers.

In addition, higher resistance to chemicals, heat, and water offered by glass automotive windshields is anticipated to fuel their demand in the coming years.

Rising Prominence of ADAS to Support Growth of Automotive Windshield Market

As technological advances permeate the automotive space, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) is gaining significant traction worldwide. ADAS technology is now being integrated into the windshield of the vehicle to facilitate driver safety and assistance.

Automotive windshields being a crucial source of protection, it has become imperative for manufacturers to advocate the safety of passengers using sensors and cameras in the automotive windshields.

Automotive windshields with ADAS can detect crashes using radar technology.

Moreover, the new ADAS innovation in the automotive windshield space is the night vision system. The automotive windshield is equipped with an infrared camera. This system provides a display on the automotive windshield that extends the driver’s vision at night, in turn enhancing the driving experience.

Against this backdrop, the growing integration of ADAS in vehicles is expected to support the growth of the automotive windshield market during the forecast period.

Augmented Reality in Automotive Windshield – A New Trend

Technology giants are focusing on developing AR (Augmented Reality) in the automotive windshields of vehicles with the use of the Internet of Things (IoT). With augmented reality in automotive windshields, drivers and passengers can conduct calls with passengers in different vehicles on a real-time basis.

For instance, Apple Inc. has filed a patent for its “Heads-Up Display” – an automotive windshield powered by augmented reality. This automotive windshield can conduct FaceTime calls with visual communication between the remotely situated users and vehicle occupants.

Technological Integrations Likely to Complicate Automotive Windshield Replacement

Manufacturers of automotive windshields are inclined toward incorporating new technologies in the automotive windshields in a bid to enhance customer experience and safety.

However, the integration of technologies such as ADAS makes it difficult during the replacement of automotive windshields as equipment and sensors are linked with the need to be accurately calibrated so as to maintain the compatibility quotient with the vehicle system.

Replacing the automotive windshield with ADAS incurs a high cost as all sensors must be replaced and installed in the new glass along with accompanying equipment.

Inaccurate installments can cause malfunction misleading the driver ultimately resulting in accidents. This factor remains a key challenge for the aftermarket for the automotive windshield.
