Market Potential and Pitfalls
The global automotive sunroof market is estimated to expand at breakneck speed due to the soaring demand for impact-resistant and lightweight sunroof, which is likely to propel the developments and innovations across the market. Manufacturers like Inteva Products, Webasto Group, and Inalfa Roof Systems Group B.V. are extensively investing in R&D, which is further encouraging the market growth. For instance, the Webasto Group has developed a sunroof glass with the help of polycarbonate to manufacture sunroof. Polycarbonate has made the glass more impact-resistant, toughened, and effective. Manufacturers are highly focusing on investments to enhance the technology of ambient lighting, switchable glazing, and solar panels in sunroofs. These investments are likely to encourage the demand for advanced sunroof equipped with the latest technology.
Attributes such as 3D formability and transparency can be obtained by integrating sensors and light sources in polycarbonate. The proliferation of conventional technology is high in developing regions as they are easily available and costs low. Manufacturing companies in automotive sunroof are highly investing in development activities to increase the strength and minimize weight in order to enhance conventional automotive sunroof. These developments are further estimated to encourage the market growth in the foreseeable future.
March 2019: Polyscope Polymers has won the JEC Innovation Award 2019 for automotive sunroof thermoplastic composite guide rails. XIRAN SGH30EB glass filled thermoplastic composite was specified by the Groupe Renault and Webasto France for roller-blind guide rails on panoramic sunroof modules, which were installed long back in Grand Scenic and Renault Scenic MPV models. This is a notable innovation for the industry as thermoplastic composite material successfully replaced aluminum for sunroof design for the first time.
