By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Glazing Market by Polycarbonate Material, Application, Advanced Application, On-Highway & Off-Highway Vehicles, and by Region – Forecast to 2021” report to their offering.

The global automotive polycarbonate glazing market is estimated to be USD 1.75 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow to USD 3.94 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 17.53%. The increasing demand for lightweight materials and growing market for automotive sunroofs have fueled the growth of the global automotive polycarbonate glazing market.

Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for automotive polycarbonate glazing in 2016, owing to its high vehicle production and increasing demand for sunroofs. It is also projected to be the fastest-growing market for automotive polycarbonate glazing, with North America following at a close second. North America has a higher technology adoption rate, but due to the sheer volume of vehicles produced, Asia-Oceania is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period.
