Increasing number of vehicle sales and companies shifting from manual to automated window regulators likely to boost the global automotive window regulator market
Factors such as increasing purchasing power of people, advancements in infrastructure and improved consumer sentiments are together driving the demand for vehicles, which in turn increases the demand for automotive window regulators. The automotive industry contributes a healthy percentage of the world’s GDP. More number of OEMs are setting up their manufacturing units across the world. India and China are the prominent markets for car manufacturers owing to increasing population and growing need for personal vehicles. Moreover, many banks and financial institutes are coming up with different loan schemes, making it relatively easy to own a car.
Manufacturers are focussing on producing electric or automated window regulators, owing to the better functionality and efficiency. Furthermore, Corporate Average Fuel Economy and Environmental Protection Agency standards have become relatively stringent and levy heavy fines on automakers who do not reach the standard mpg norms. The aforementioned factors force automakers to develop better automobiles with superior fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Usage of better alloys with high tensile strength in automotive components is estimated to support the growth of the global automotive window regulator market.
In many countries, governments have banned the import of used cars and increased the tariffs depending on the age of vehicles. For instance, the Poland government progressively increased vehicle tariffs according to the age of the vehicles. The average age of cars in Russia is 10 years, so consumer demand for new cars is comparatively high. The car density in Russia is around 180 and in Poland is around 328. The increase in demand for new vehicles is driving global demand in the automotive window regulator market.
The presence of key automotive manufacturers is another reason fuelling the global market for automotive window regulators during the projected period. For instance, Japan is a technologically advanced and prominent country for automotive manufacturers. The country has a presence of some of the big car manufacturers such as Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Fuso, Hino, Daihatsu, Mazda and Lexus. Moreover, key window regulator manufacturers such as Shiroki Corporation, Brose, Technico Industries Ltd., Hi-Lex and Grupo Antolin operate in Japan, and this presence of leading automotive manufacturers is boosting the market for automotive window regulators.
