A sunroof is a fixed or moveable aperture in a vehicle's roof that provides light and fresh air into the passenger cabin so that an adequate ventilation can be maintained within the car, which improves the interior climate and removes the whiff. They are either non-transparent or transparent panels that are manually or mechanically controlled. They let to increase the brightness and lighting, as well as intensify the air circulation to provide optimum comfort to the customer.
The significant growth in the automobile industry represents one of the key factors positively influencing the market. Moreover, increasing passenger vehicle sales in conjunction with rising per capita income and consumer spending toward effective ventilation and brighter vehicle interiors to enhance the overall driving experience will positively influence the industry demand. In addition, technological advancements in sunroof materials are driving automotive sunroof demand as well. Thereby, ongoing design upgrades and material advancements to reduce weight and provide stability are boosting the industry's growth. Furthermore, leading automobile manufacturers are focusing on upgrading the design of the automotive sunroof by utilizing advanced materials. 
They are also adopting a wide variety of glasses, such as tempered, laminated, and glass, which can offer protection again ultraviolet (UV) rays. This, in confluence with increasing environmental concerns among individuals, has propelled key players to introduce the solar automotive sunroof, which is a cost-efficient and sustainable technology impelling the growth of the market. Besides this, rising sales of premium and luxury vehicles are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other major factors, including the integration of rain sensors, rising adoption of sunroofs in electric vehicles (EVs) and increasing sales of EVs, are anticipated to strengthen the growth of the market.
Taking an inorganic route to gain market share has been an important strategy in the automobile industry. In August 2022, Webasto, global systems partner to the mobility sector,  acquired Carlex Glass Luxembourg SA in Grevenmacher (Luxembourg).  The site manufactures glass elements for passenger cars, counts many international carmakers among its customers and was previously part of Carlex Glass America LLC, based in Nashville, Tennessee (USA). In June 2022, Champion Auto Systems announced that the tooling and equipment to produce the Hollandia 700 (H700) family of sunroofs is on the way to America, following Champion’s acquisition of the Hollandia 700 line. 
However, the sunroof industry is facing issues related to faulty parts. Recently, Mercedes-Benz issued a recall campaign in the US affecting 123,696 cars comprising the models such as C-Class, E-Class, CLK-Class and CLS-Class that were built between 2001 and 2011, owing to a faulty sunroof issue. The recall campaign also covers the respective models' high-performance focused AMG variants. The affected Mercedes-Benz models are claimed to have a sunroof that could come off, as the glass panel might not be appropriately secured. The supplier claimed to have changed the drying time for the glass sunroof's bonding agent. This finding resulted in the automaker issuing a recall campaign in December 2019. Later the automaker expanded the recall campaign in March 2021. 
New product launches to flourish in the market 
In April 2022, Demeta, a French green chemistry company  carried out jointly with H+S Automotive, a historic German moulder, and materialized by the production of odorless p-DCPD parts for the automotive industry. The lightweight, resistance and aesthetic qualities of NexTene-by-Demeta resin made it the perfect material for a new molded polymer automotive sunroof frame – a recent collaboration between Demeta and H+S Automotive. Earlier, in February 2021, SunRoof, a Swedish start-up developing solar roofs and smart energy management solutions, partnered with Porsche Inter Auto. Both companies seek to promote the sustainable development and innovative solutions in which they are involved. One of the results of these joint activities is the creation of the first solar carport for electric vehicles under the aegis of a car dealer
Segmental Overview
The Automotive Sunroofs Market is segmented on the basis of type, material, operation, vehicle type, and distribution channel.
By Type: The Automotive Sunroofs Market is segmented into In-Built, Panoramic, Folding, Pop-Up, and Others. Because OEMs prefer providing inbuilt in their cars and extra functions such as vents, sunshade, auto closure, and others that further increase vehicle comfort levels, the inbuilt sector is projected to have the biggest market share.
By Material: The Automotive Sunroofs Market has two categories with respect to material used, including glass and fabric. Glass holds the biggest market share currently and is predicted to increase at an exponential rate during the forecast period. This segment's increased use can be linked to technical developments, material breakthroughs such as improved sunroof glazing, which has decreased overhead safety issues, and glass that can reflect UV rays.
By Operation: The Automotive Sunroofs Market has two categories based on operation, including manual and electric.
By Vehicle Type: The Automotive Sunroofs Market is segmented into two vehicle categories, including Passenger Car and Light Commercial Vehicle. The passenger automobile category is predicted to increase rapidly in the market. Greater development in this category can be attributable to the introduction of cost-effective solutions that would provide natural light and ventilation and increased comfort without the additional expense burden associated with sunroof installation and maintenance.
By Distribution Channel: The Automotive Sunroofs Market is segmented into two distribution channel categories, including OEM and aftermarket.
By Region:  North America automotive sunroof market share accounted highest share in 2021. Due to a steady increase in vehicle production across Europe, automotive sunroof market was the second largest in 2021. In addition, presence of major automotive businesses in the region is expected to boost market growth throughout the projection period. High proportion of vehicles produced in China with sunroofs or panorama roofs will continue to rise in the coming years. Automobile parts manufacturers are looking to expand their operations and opening new manufacturing facilities to tap merging markets in the APAC and LATAM regions. In March 2021,  German car parts manufacturer, Webasto, announced its plan to open a factory in Pune, India, to manufacture sunroofs. The German manufacturer aims to capitalise on the recovering automotive market in India by manufacturing sunroofs for models on sale in the country and for export. 
The company will also establish a testing centre here with the aim of introducing technologies as well as in-house projects. Saint-Gobain Sekurit India (SGSIL), a part of the Paris-based Saint-Gobain - the automotive glass specialist expects the demand for sunroofs to double and cross half a million units in the CY2022, as it becomes one of the most sought after feature in the premium cars in India. Over the past few years, an increase in luxury cars and rising demand for convenience features have largely fuelled the automotive sunroof industry in India. Until recently, sunroofs were only an option on the most costly models of luxury vehicles from brands like Audi, BMW, Volvo, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz. However, as passenger cars have become more popular, there has been a greater shift in consumer preference from a simple automobile to a car with a variety of convenience amenities.
