Global Automotive Encapsulated Glass Market: Introduction

The automotive encapsulated glass market squarely is dependent on the production and sale of vehicles. Automotive encapsulated glass is utilized in automotive applications, such as in windows and windshields. Further, automotive encapsulate glass fulfills various purposes including water tightness management, improved design, aesthetics, and noise reduction. Scratch or abrasion resistance, weather resistant, and recyclable are the key characteristics offered by the automotive encapsulated glass.

Manufacturing of automotive encapsulated glass is an expensive process. An alloy die-casting mold must be made for individual design and shape. Double component materials, such as polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride, thermoplastic elastomers, and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) are utilized under high-pressure situation and inject into the mold cavity where the automotive encapsulated glass is located. The PU rim molding part is formed with the material cool down and encapsulating the glass. Moving ahead, development of the automotive encapsulated glass arises from the need to reduce exterior noise, which is regulated by federal law. In terms of the structure of the encapsulate glass market, the aftermarket segment is likely to remain lucrative owing to frequent replacement of automotive encapsulated glass. Subsequently, the aim of the study is to analyze the most recent trends and dynamics in the global and regional automotive encapsulated glass market.
