“Suspended Particle Device (SPD) is estimated as the leading automotive smart glass technology”
With growing demand for premium passenger cars and hybrid & plug-in hybrid vehicles (HEV & PHEV), the demand for smart glass is growing. Owing to the high cost associated with smart glass, the technologies are presently limited to premium vehicles.
Of the smart glass technologies, the SPD technology is expected to dominate the automotive smart glass market. SPD regulates the amount of heat and light entering in a vehicle, provides 99% protection from harmful UV radiations, controls the cabin temperature, thereby reducing the air conditioning unit’s consumption, and enhances safety and other factors.
The largest application of SPD technology is in passenger car sunroofs. Advancements related to sunroofs based on this technology such as MAGIC SKY CONTROL, panoramic roofs have been employed in high end luxury models by OEMs such Mercedes (Germany) and BMW (Germany).
Laminated Glass is the fastest growing segment in the Automotive Glass Market”
The laminated glass market is projected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Laminated glass in the windshield has a PVB layer that protects the passengers from broken glass pieces.
It also offers clear visibility. Increased safety when compared with tempered glass and possible applications of laminated glass in sidelites (in addition to windshield) are the key reasons for the growth of laminated glass market.
Side glazing trend started in Europe and now other key countries such as US and Japan are also following the trend where vehicles are fitted with side laminated glazing. Laminated side glazing improves safety of the passenger and driver.
It also improves the NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) conditions of the vehicles.
