According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automotive Sunroof Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global automotive sunroof market reached US$ 9.2 Billion in 2021. Automotive sunroofs refer to solid, movable panels installed in the roof of automobiles that open up to allow natural light and fresh air to enter the interior cabin. They can be motor-driven or manually operated and are typically available in transparent and opaque variants. They either pop up, slide open, tilt, or fold to uncover the opening on the top of the vehicle. In recent years, automotive sunroofs have gained immense popularity among consumers and automakers to enhance the overall aesthetics, provide ventilation, improve passenger comfort, and add value to the vehicle.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Automotive Sunroof Market Trends:
The surging sales of premium and luxury vehicles due to rapid urbanization, improving lifestyles, and elevating income levels represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the shifting consumer preferences toward enhanced driving experience and the expanding automotive industry are other major growth-inducing factors. Additionally, individuals are increasingly spending on adequate ventilation and brighter vehicle interiors for improved aesthetics, especially the younger population. In line with this, the rising adoption of sunroofs in sport utility vehicles has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, the leading automobile manufacturers are focusing on design upgrades and material advancements to reduce overall vehicle weight and provide stability. They are also introducing panorama sunroof airbag systems to enhance passenger safety by preventing occupants from falling out through the roof in case of accidents or rollovers. Apart from this, several product innovations, such as the launch of solar automotive sunroofs and the integration of rain sensors to enable auto sunroof closing, have catalyzed the market growth. Other factors, including the growing usage of sunroofs in electric vehicles (EVs), increasing automobile production, emerging car customization trends, escalating demand for passenger cars, and technological advancements, are also creating a favorable outlook for the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 14.7 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 8% during 2022-2027.
