The introduction of new vehicle models with sunroofs as a basic feature will induce significant growth potential. In 2019, Kia introduced Seltos with a sunroof to enhance the passenger experience. The vehicle not only provides a natural condition but also enhances the vehicle’s aesthetics.

Technological advancements in sunroof materials to enhance safety, aesthetics, performance, and reduce failure is likely to drive automotive sunroof demand. This is because the installation of certain heavy glasses in the sunroof mechanism on the rooftop of a vehicle leads to disruption in the center of gravity, compromising structural integrity and vehicle stability. Thereby, ongoing design upgrades and material advancements to reduce weight & provide stability is boosting the industry growth.

Superior energy efficiency and effective insulation of glass to spur market growth

Glass sunroof products dominate automotive sunroof market and is predicted to account for more than 90% share in 2027. Easy availability of raw materials and conventional processing of tempered or laminated glass is augmenting the market revenue. Superior energy efficiency and effective insulation properties of glass along with low maintenance compared to traditional counterparts make it a suitable choice as sunroofs in the industry. Furthermore, the advancements in glass technology offer superior protection from ultraviolet rays coupled with increasing sales of premium & luxury vehicles in developing nations and rising demand for electric & hybrid vehicles globally will fuel the glass sunroof market growth.

Superior ventilation solution to surge panoramic sunroof adoption

Panoramic sunroofs segment is set to generate around USD 10 billion by 2027 on account of the product’s ability to provide superior ventilation. Several vehicle manufacturers provide vehicles with panoramic sunroofs to enhance ventilation. For instance, in 2020, Hyundai launched the Tucson variant with panoramic sunroofs. Industry participants are reducing the product weight to meet emission constraints. In 2017, Inteva introduced panoramic sunroofs with a 10% weight reduction. Thereby, superior ventilation and product upgrades with sun protective films will enhance the segment penetration.

The rising implementation of pop-up sunroof systems by automobile manufacturers for better aesthetics is another key growth-enabling factor. Vehicle manufacturers are upgrading their vehicles with advanced aesthetic features to attract a larger consumer base.

Smooth functionality of automatic sunroofs will expand revenue generation

Automatic segment dominates the automotive sunroof market and is estimated to witness above 9.5% CAGR through 2027with rising demand for easily operable automobile systems. The product provides operation with minimal driver hindrance and can be operated by remote or any electrical system induced in a vehicle. Additional integrated safety systems in the sunroofs also allow the detection of an object or rain through sensors, which will largely fuel its growth. Companies are strengthening their manufacturing capabilities to gain a competitive advantage.
