Automotive Film Market: Introduction
An automotive film is a thin laminate film applied on the interior and exterior parts of a vehicle. Automotive films provide added security, privacy and comfort. Window films and paint protection films are two key types of automotive films. These films enhance the appearance of the vehicle and provide high transparency and high gloss. Automotive films block more than 92% of UV rays and provide comfort by blocking the unwanted sun glare. Window films with lighter tints often combine solid heat rejection performance and reduce fading, while accenting the look of a car. Furthermore, automotive dyeing films are beneficial in reducing winter heat loss & solar heat gain and help maintain a comfortable & sustainable environment inside the vehicle. In addition, the usage of UV filtering dyeing films lessens the risk of skin damage & skin cancer.
These benefits offered by automotive films, along with increasing safety concerns among buyers, are estimated to fuel the market growth. Automotive films usually get their color either by a layer of a metal or dye. Dyed films characteristically fade faster over time and provide less protection from heat and light as compared to metal films. On the other hand, metallized films can interfere with the radio or GPS inside a car. Automotive films can also be applied in automotive interiors, such as audio remote control systems, control panels, dials, the console and door trims.
Automotive Film Market: Dynamics
High durability, availability in different shades and ability to prevent skin damage are some of the major drivers for the automotive film market. The ability of these films to provide privacy and offer a unique style for the vehicle’s interiors and exteriors escalate the demand for this market. Growing demand for passenger vehicles with technological advancement will surge the market growth. Automotive films are economically a better option as compared to paints and are easy to install. Growing industries, such as graphics and signs, are anticipated to support the growth of the automotive film market.
The Indian government has banned the use of black films on car windscreens and windows. Australian states and territories demand the VLT (visible light transmission level) of approximately 35% on a light vehicle's side windows. According to the U.K. government, the front and side screen of a vehicle must allow a minimum of 70% light through. Such government regulations related to automotive films hamper the market growth for automotive films.
The new black chrome automotive window film utilizes a metalized film technology and provides significantly improved comfort and maximum heat rejection.
