 Automotive Window and Exterior Sealing System Market Scenario:


Automotive window and exterior sealing system market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 7% from 2017 - 2023.

The global automotive industry is going through a transition. For the production of automobiles that provide higher passenger comfort level, the innovation and manufacturing of efficient window and sealants, which provide protection against rust and corrosion to the vehicle surface and protection to passengers traveling in the automobile, have assumed  significant importance.


There are many factors responsible for the growth of the global automotive window and exterior sealing system market. Firstly, industrialization is degrading the environment and causing irreversible climate change. This leads to global warming and extreme weather conditions. The automobiles manufactured these days need to protect passengers from adverse environmental conditions. Secondly, the longevity of the automobile, which decides the number of years up to which the automobile can be used at its full performance capacity, depends on the wear and tear of the external surface, along with the engine functionality and vehicle maintenance. The vehicle interior  can be properly maintained, well protected from dust and other impurities from the environment if automakers invest in suitable window and exterior sealing systems. Thus, the overall global automotive window and exterior sealing system market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 7% from 2017 - 2023.


Automotive Window and Exterior Sealing System Market, By Segmentation:


On the basis of component type, the glass run channels are the most widely used due to the low cost of production. The plastic reinforced glass that is preferred in the automotive industry can be easily mass produced and the cost of production decreases exponentially as the volume of bulk production increases. The window sealant system is very effective in insulating the interior of the automobile   from the onslaught of heat and dust particles, thus acting as thermal and physical insulator providing air tight protection to the vehicle interiors. However, the cost of production of seals is quite high. Additionally, seals of exact specifications need to be manufactured to meet specific requirements of the automobile window and chassis dimensions so that they can be installed correctly. On the basis of exterior seals, hood seals are not a necessity and hence, are installed as an added feature. The trunk and front windshield seals are most commonly used in the automotive manufacturing process.
