Market Driver

Booming Demand for Electric Vehicles to Accelerate Market Growth

Staggering air pollution levels have led to a dramatic shift in consumer preference from conventional to electric vehicles (EVs) in the past decade. In response, automakers have intensified their R&D efforts to cater to this paradigmatic change in consumer behavior. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global EV fleet had gone beyond 5 million in 2018, representing an astounding rise of 63% from 2017 levels. Of these, nearly 45% are on road in China, the IEA further notes. The IEA also projects that up till 2030, the year-on-year increase in the global EV stock will be 44 million. This bodes well for this market as EVs will require sturdy glass solutions owing to their lighter weight and an expanding market for EVs will benefit the growth of the market for automotive glass.
