Automotive Sidelite Market Outlook – 2027

Windows in a vehicle that are not the windshield or backlight are called sidelite. Some people refer to these windows as the roll-downs (or roll-ups), as these are the windows that can be opened and closed by a mechanism that allows them to slide up and down. The windows that do not open and that are installed immediately in front or behind the operational windows are called the quarter glass. Sidelights (sometimes called parking lights) are usually contained in the same headlight unit as normal headlights and full beams both front corners of car. Owing to increase in trade barriers, the demand for automobiles is likely to increase, which is expected to boost the growth of the automotive sidelite market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of automotive sidelite across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of automotive sidelite, which negatively impacts the market growth.
  • However, this situation is expected to improve as government has started relaxing norms around the world for resuming business activities.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Some of the factors that boost the growth of the global automotive sidelite market are increase in use of sidelight as parking light and rise in applications of automotive sideline. However, low familiarity of engineers in advanced plastic glazing and high cost of polycarbonate are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market. Conversely, increase in adoption of polycarbonate glazing applications such as windshields and polycarbonate usage to remove blind spot area-A-pillar are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market in the forecasting period.

The automotive sidelite market trends are as follows:

Increase in use of sidelight as parking light

The sidelight is considered as the parking light, which serves as an alternative to the dipped beam headlight. Moreover, drivers turn on their sidelights when it is dark or cloudy and the natural lighting is low, but not dark enough to turn on their dipped beams. Hence, increase in usage of sidelight for various purposes is expected to boost the automotive sidelight market in the forecasting period.

Sidelight finds its application in windshield, backlite, rear quarter glass, and side & rear-view mirrors. It serves various purposes of parking light & dipped beam headlights in different situations, which is boosting the growth of the market. In addition, sidelite is the largest and fastest-growing smart glass application in the automotive smart lighting market. It provides more control to the user to manage the lighting of the vehicle as per the requirements. Therefore, surge in demand for luxurious vehicles across the globe is expected to boost the growth of the automotive sidelite market during the forecast period.
