Automotive Sunroof Market will cross USD 10 billion by 2022 at 10% CAGR. Increasing utilization of smart glass in automotive applications along with rising vehicle production is expected to fuel the industry growth. OEMs are focusing on aesthetic appeal and luxury interiors to offer enhanced driving experience to their customers. This will lead to a high demand for vehicles with larger factory installed sunroof and fuel the industry demand. Manufacturers are providing inbuilt or optional systems for their premium and mid ranged vehicles. For instance, Flex explorer and Mustang models by Ford are incorporated with these systems. Opportunities are available in the form of solar roofs for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Installation of these systems may cause holes and drains resulting in potential leakage of water or snow into the car thus requiring high maintenance expenses. Electrical failures, poor calibrations, improper installations and continuous maintenance requirement coupled with high cost of these systems may hamper the automotive sunroof market growth. Rising design concerns due to increased weight on top changes the gravity centre thus requiring compliance with strict safety regulations regarding roof crash.

Players in the automotive sunroof market are Aisin Seiki, Inalfa Roof Systems Groups, Inteva Products, Valmet Automotive, Johnan America, Mitsuba Corporation, Webasto, etc. Webasto accounted for over 50% of the industry share and aims at expansion along with investment in R&D and new product developments. Tinted or UV reflected glass with reduction in loud noises and addressed leakage issues are some of the emerging innovations in this sector.
