Front lighting application is anticipated to be the largest segment of the automotive glazing market

All vehicles are equipped with front lighting; the average size of front lighting depends on the type of vehicle. Additionally, polycarbonate has 100% penetration in front lighting application from the last few years. Thus, increasing vehicle production has a direct impact on the polycarbonate glazing market. Moreover, average lighting size has been increased owing to the DRL mandates. Increased average size coupled with the highest penetration of polycarbonate in lighting applications is estimated to drive the front lighting application segment.
