"Suspended particle device to be the leading smart glass technology" 

Suspended particle device (SPD) technology is expected to dominate the automotive smart glass market. Market growth can be attributed to the advantages offered by SPD glass, such as regulating the amount of heat and light entering a vehicle, providing 99% protection from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, enhancing safety, and controlling the cabin temperature (thereby reducing the consumption of the air conditioning unit). The key application of SPD technology is in the sunroofs of passenger cars. Advanced sunroof technology, such as WONDERLITE glass roof, MAGIC SKY CONTROL, and panoramic roofs, has been employed in high-end luxury models.

"Laminated glass to be the fastest growing segment in the Automotive Glass Market" 

The laminated glass market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market is driven by the advantages offered by laminated glass, such as enhanced safety compared to tempered glass, the ability of the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) layer to bond glass even when it is broken, clear visibility, and theft reduction. Given the growing demand for sidelite laminated glazing, a trend which first began in Europe, countries such as the U.S. and Japan have begun manufacturing vehicles fitted with side laminated glazing.
