An automotive fabric sunroof is a type of sunroof typically found in vehicles that have a cloth or fabric top. It is typically a manual, folding sunroof that is opened and closed manually, by pulling a cord or lever. The fabric is typically vinyl coated polyester or other durable material and is designed to withstand the elements. This is the opening on the top of the vehicle to provide fresh air and light, hence allowed the comfortable journey. The original equipment manufacturers (OEM) offers these fabric sunroofs in different size, design and with advanced technologies, depending on the type of the vehicle. The global automotive fabric sunroof market covers fabric sunroof installation in different type of vehicles such as hatchback, sedan, SUV among others. Furthermore, the regional as well as the country-wise demand estimations are provided in the report.
Currently, the market demand for fabric sunroofs is limited due to its limitation such as premature degradation due to weather, risk of theft etc. However, with the ongoing research and developmental activities and innovation, the fabric sunroofs are expected to gain market traction in the coming years.
Growing demand for luxury vehicles and increasing vehicle production are the key factors driving the growth of the automotive fabric sunroof market. Furthermore, increasing adoption of new technologies, such as sensors and automatic operation, in sunroofs is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the technological advancement to reduce product weight and increase product durability is expected to strengthen the market demand during the forecast period.
Moreover, increasing demand for panoramic sunroofs will provide numerous opportunities for growth of the market in the coming years. For instance, in June 2021, Webasto SE announced to start supplying sliding panorama sunroof for the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
