The automotive glass market in Asia Oceania is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, from 2017 to 2025. The automotive industry in Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automotive production in recent times due to the changing consumer preferences, increasing per capita income, and cost advantages for OEMs. The region is well known for small and cost-effective passenger cars. However, compact SUVs have gained popularity in emerging countries. These vehicles require more volume of glass per vehicle, thus increasing the demand for glass. Due to low production cost, easy availability of economical labor, lenient emission & safety norms, government initiatives for FDI, the region has witnessed higher growth, which has, in turn, propelled the growth of the automotive glass market.

Suspended Particle Device (SPD) technology is the fastest-growing segment in the automotive smart glass market, in terms of value, from 2017 to 2025. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for comfort and safety. SPD-based smart glass maintains the amount of light and heat entering the vehicle through windows. It helps in reducing fuel consumption by regulating the cabin temperature.

Moreover, increased competition between OEMs regarding product offerings has also led to the development of SPD smart glass applications. SPD windows are available with either glass or plastic substrates so it helps to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle.
