SUMMARY

This report provides an in-depth analysis of the worldwide market for smart glass used in cars and trucks identifying the main opportunities that smart glass presents for glass and coatings makers as well as for the car firms themselves. In addition, the report includes an eight-year (volume and value) forecast of smart auto glass with breakouts by materials technology and functionality.

The report incorporates a technology assessment of the latest smart glass technologies for the automotive sector including self-tinting glass, self-cleaning glass, self-healing glass, and automotive display glass. Applications covered are windshields, mirrors, sunroofs, other automotive windows and dashboards. The report also discusses the glass-related opportunities that NanoMarkets sees emerging as the result of the latest trends in automotive infotainment systems.
This report pinpoints the main trends that will shape the revenue potential of smart auto glass in the next decade. Noting that many of the smart glass technologies used in cars and trucks have low performance and short lifetimes, this report analyzes how performance will be improved and how this can lead to enhanced revenue streams for the firms involved with smart auto glass, both as technology providers and as OEMs.

Finally, the report also discusses smart glass adoption strategies by the major automobile and light truck companies, along with the product, market and supply chain strategies of key firms that are shaping the market for smart auto.
