Automotive films are a thin coating of polymetric film applied on the glass to get the desired look or function for the vehicle. These films improve external appearance and privacy of a car. In addition, automotive films ensure passenger protection from heat and sunlight in extreme climate conditions. As these films are heat absorbent, it cools the car while in motion. Technically, the automotive films provide high durability for various applications; hence, the selection of a proper film depends on its durability and intended functionality. In recent years, there has been a tremendous adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) across the world. The rising adoption of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in developed and developing countries is influencing the demand for electric cars. They also protect vehicles from harmful UV radiation. Thus, increasing demand for electric cars propel the utilization of automotive films, thereby driving the automotive films market growth.

A vehicle’s direct exposure to ultraviolet radiation can negatively affect the interior and exterior body of a vehicle. Direct sunlight exposure can lead to vehicle interior damage, often starting with the dashboard. If a car with leather seats is regularly parked without sun protection, the seats’ supple fabric can quickly wrinkle and fade. Also, direct sunlight exposure can damage the paint of a vehicle. Especially if the vehicle is dark-colored, the shade starts to fade and lose its luster due to oxidation. However, the awareness regarding these negative impacts of UV radiation is increasing among the population. Automotive films such as window tinting and paint protection coating block solar ultraviolet radiations and provide comfort by reducing glare from the sun. With the increasing awareness about the negative impacts of UV radiation on a vehicle, the demand for automotive films is increasing. Thus, manufacturers are developing UV protection automotive films for commercial and passenger vehicles. Recently, the companies have been focusing on developing window tinting films that reject up to 93% of glare from blinding sunlight. Thus, awareness about the harmful effect of UV rays and the development of various UV-resistant protective films are expected to drive the growth of the automotive films market during the forecast period.
The automotive film market is growing with an upward trend, and manufacturers are making significant investments in research & development, partnerships, technological development, and collaborations to launch innovative products to tap into emerging market opportunities. Market players are focusing on providing innovative products in response to an ever-increasing demand for automotive glasses. In November 2022, Fedrigoni S.P.A., an Italy-based manufacturer, launched Ri-Jet C50 Ultimate Slide & Tack, an innovative, extremely durable (up to 12 years), and conformable film for large format digital printing, ideal for wrapping cars and vehicle fleets, due to its adaptability on irregular surfaces such as bumpers, mirrors, and van corrugations. The company hopes to gain a strong hold on the market with this launch. In April 2021, 3M announced the launch of its newest long-lasting protective finish, “3M Ceramic Coating” for plastic trim, metal, automotive glass, wheels, and paint. This product innovation gave the company an edge over its competitors by providing faster wrapping solutions. Such innovative and advanced product launches are expected to drive the automotive films market growth in the coming years.
Based on application, the automotive films market is segmented into passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and two wheelers. In 2022, the passenger cars segment dominated the market. In passenger cars, films are installed on vulnerable areas such as bumpers, rocker panels, hoods, side mirrors, door handle cavities, door edges, and near fender panels to protect the vehicles from stains, scratches, and elements that may damage the appearance of vehicles. These factors are expected to drive the market growth for the segment during the forecast period.
Compagnie de Saint Gobain SA, 3M Co, Luxshield GmbH, Mister Lacky, PR-Folia, Eastman Chemical Co, Ergis SA, Hexis SAS, Avery Dennison Corp, and SSA Europe GmbH are among the key players operating in the automotive films market. The leading players adopt strategies such as mergers and acquisitions and product launches to expand their geographic presence and consumer base.
