Automotive Defroster Market: Introduction
Safe commuting through an automotive vehicle demands the vehicle to be in a perfect and safe working condition, especially in cold and foggy conditions. Forming of ice or fog on windshields in extreme weather conditions hampers the visibility of the driver, leading to accidents. Automotive defrosters (defogger or demister) are used in automotive vehicles for this specific reason, to remove ice and fog from the windshields of the vehicles. Automotive defrosters are categorized into two main types. Primary automotive defrosters, which use HVAC system and are installed on the front windshield and secondary automotive defrosters, installed don the rear windshield and don’t used HVAC system. Automotive defrosters blows warm air onto the windshield of the vehicle causing the icing to melt and provides a better visibility to the driver. They can also remove the condensation from the insides of the windshield by removing moisture. Given their functionality to provide better visual aids to the driver, automotive defroster market is expected to witness significant demand in the coming years.
Automotive Defroster Market: Dynamics
Automotive defroster plays a vital role in automotive vehicles, passenger and commercial vehicles alike, operating in cold weather conditions. The need for having a better visibility while driving in cold, foggy weather conditions is one of the main driving factors for the increasing demand of automotive defrosters.
Among the type segment, primary automotive defroster segment is expected to create a greater demand as compared to secondary automotive defrosters, as the primary defrosters are mostly used on the front windshields. Given their use of HVAC system, primary automotive defrosters are highly preferred among consumers. The aftermarket for automotive defrosters is expected to be significantly high due to their high replacement rate and hence, the aftermarket segment in sales channel type is expected to lead the automotive defrosters market. In the vehicle type segment, passenger cars segment is expected to create high demand for automotive defrosters due to the growing number of personal vehicles across the globe. Overall, automotive defroster market is expected to witness significant demand during the forecast period.
