Automotive Tinted Window Panes: Introduction
- Increased awareness about privacy and surge in the demand for escort vehicles are fueling the demand for automotive tinted window panes. People outside the vehicle are unable to view the interiors of the vehicle that is fitted with tinted window panes.

Smart Window/ Switchable Window to Offer Attractive Opportunities
- Smart windows are windows coated with glazing whose light emission properties change on application of voltage, heat or light is applied on the window. Increasing penetration of smart/ switchable windows in premium vehicles is projected to drive the segment.
- Moreover, increasing investment by private and public investors in technology startups that deal with switchable or smart windows is likely to boost the smart/ switchable windows segment during forecast period.
