Panoramic sunroof is a large sunroof that covers the entire roof of a vehicle. It is significantly larger than a traditional sunroof, and may be clear or tinted. This sunroof is either made of a single solid panel of glass or multiple panels. When the roof is opened, the single panel will simply slide toward the back of the vehicle. In the other version, the multiple panels will stack upon each other to the back of the roof opening. Furthermore, this sunroof does not disappear inside the vehicle’s roof as there is not adequate room. They are designed to cover maximum view so that passengers in both front and rear seats can enjoy the fresh air and sunlight.

Rise in demand for safety, comfort, and convenience features

Increase in demand for safety, comfort, and aesthetic features have led to several technological advancements in vehicles such as installation of sunroofs that allow better air circulation. Leading automobile manufacturer are launching wide range of vehicles with panoramic sunroof features. For instance, Kia Motors India, Inc., a world-class quality vehicles manufacturer has launched new KX3, a sports utility vehicle (SUV) in China. Moreover, rise in advance technologies to remove fog or frost from the windows to enhance visibility in all-weather condition with the better illumination, subsequently increases the comfort level of the passengers. Thus, rise in demand for safety and comfortable features in automobiles boosts the growth of the automotive panoramic sunroof market.

High integration and maintenance cost

A sunroof can start leaking or stop working due to several reasons, such as broken motors, faulty tracks, and shattered or chipped glass. Integration and repair of sunroofs is expensive. The components such as rain sensors, power-operated sliding glass panel, aluminum or plastic handles, and other hardware are cheaper than steel or carbon fiber. These components are integrated in single plate, which in turn adds up to the weight of sunroof. Further, they require frequent maintenance, which is expected to hinder the growth of the automotive panoramic sunroof market.

Rise in penetration of solar sunroof in electric vehicles

Governments in the Asia-Pacific region are actively promoting environment friendly vehicles in their respective countries since the Climate Change Agreement in Paris. For instance, Panasonic manufactures the 180-watt roof for Toyota Prius Prime model in the Japanese market. Moreover, the State of Delaware is offering tax-free businesses that provide an electric charging station for electric and hybrid vehicles. The constant support & funding from various governments for the development of solar roof technology & infrastructure is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for the players operating in the automotive panoramic sunroof market.

Analyst Review

Panoramic sunroof systems generally use a multi-panel roofing design that provides openings above the front and rear seats instead of offering a single option in the middle part of the vehicle. These sunroof systems can be operable or fixed panels depending on what the manufacturer offers and typically uses a top-slider or spoiler mechanism to get the desired result. It offers advantages such as natural air conditioning, enhanced sense of openness, emergency escape, and others.

The factors such as rise in innovation in glass technology and increase in demand for safety, comfort, and convenience features drive the growth of the automotive panoramic sunroof market. However, high integration & maintenance cost and low penetration of power sunroof in low segment vehicles are expected to hinder the growth of the market. Further, rise in penetration of solar sunroof in electric vehicles and increase in sale of automotive vehicles are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunity for the key players operating in the automotive panoramic sunroof market.

Among the analyzed regions, currently, Europe is the highest revenue contributor, and is expected to maintain the lead during the forecast period, followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, and LAMEA.
