This sunroof opens above the roof, which has little headroom and roof length. Moreover, tilt and slide sunroof also needs a water management system to prevent water from entering the vehicle. The tile and slide sunroof is available in transparent and tinted color shades.

Key Drivers of Automotive Tilt and Slide Sunroof Market

  • Production and sales of passenger and commercial vehicles is increasing globally due to rising population, growing infrastructural development and urbanization, and increase in disposable income of consumers. The global automotive production stood at around 78 million units in 2020, which witnessed a decline of around 16% as compared to that in 2019 production data. This production data indicates a demand for and slide sunroof in the cars, buses, and other vehicles. These sunroofs are widely adopted for large vehicles such as for SUVs and light commercial vehicles. This sunroof allows cool breeze and sunlight to enter into the vehicle and hence, it is widely preferred by consumers. Therefore, an increase in vehicle production fuels the automotive tilt and slide sunroof market.
  • Purchasing capacity of consumers is rising in developing countries, which witnessed an increase in year-on-year adoption rate of sunroof in cars. The tilt and slide sunroof is easy to install and witnesses significantly high demand in the aftermarket segment. These sunroofs need to slide outwards and do not require complex cutting; hence, they witness high demand. Consequently, the rising trend of installing sunroof in the existing vehicle propels the demand for automotive tilt and slide sunroof in the aftermarket segment.

  • The maintenance cost of tilt and slide sunroof is comparatively high, as compared to other sunroofs; mostly it is installed in the aftermarket segment. Sometimes, it is not installed properly and has leakage in the long run. Subsequently, the maintenance and handling cost increases. These factors hamper the automotive tilt and slide sunroof market.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic led to the shutdown of vehicle manufacturing processes and a decline in automotive sales, which hindered the demand for tile and slide sunroof. Moreover, national and international boarders where closed, which disrupted the global supply chains and led to a shortage of raw materials that are required for the production of sunroof. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic also impacted manufacturing processes of vehicle components, which hampered the production of sunroofs that were used in the aftermarket segment.

Opportunities in Automotive Tilt and Slide Sunroof Market

  • Governments across the globe have enacted several environment regulatory policies regarding vehicle emission and adoption of electric vehicles. The IC engine vehicle requires a large amount of diesel and petrol and also emits more pollutants. Therefore, governments also provides several incentives and tax benefits to manufacturers of electric vehicles, who further focus on EV production. Moreover, electric vehicle has already installed sunroofs; therefore, increase in EV production propels the tilt and slide sunroof market.
  • Demand for tilt and slide sunroof is also rising in commercial buses and premium trucks. On the other hand, consumers in developing countries extensively follow the trends of sunroof, which is expected to fuel the tilt and slide sunroof market during the forecast period.
