Market Overview

An automotive sunroof is an opening in the roof that allows fresh air and light into the vehicle's interior. It improves passenger comfort by improving air circulation and providing superior brightness and illumination during the day. Sunroofs are either transparent or non-transparent panels that can be operated manually or electrically and come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles depending on the vehicle. OEMs are currently developing advanced technologies to manufacture sunroofs, such as composite materials for developing lightweight sunroof solutions, which is increasing their demand in the industry. Sunroofs have seen continuous innovation, from traditional pop-up sunroofs to modern panoramic ones, enabling a symbiotic relationship between advanced engineering and refined luxury. They exemplify the progressive nature of automotive design, reflecting changing consumer preferences and manufacturer’s constant pursuit of meeting diverse market demands and elevating the overall in-car experience.

Driving Factors

The automotive sunroof market is significantly driven by a confluence of factors, one of which is consumer preference. Consumers in Japan are increasingly showing a strong preference for luxury and premium vehicles with sunroofs, acting as a catalyst for market expansion. Furthermore, advancements in automotive design and rising consumer demand for improved aesthetic appeal are driving the development of various sunroof models. The introduction of panoramic sunroofs, in particular, is critical, stimulating increased consumer interest and, as a result, driving sales higher. Aside from that, rising vehicle safety standards and the incorporation of advanced technologies such as solar cell integration in sunroofs, which can provide additional benefits and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers, are propelling market growth. Furthermore, consistent efforts by Japanese manufacturers to refine and innovate sunroof designs that can address consumer concerns about noise and air resistance are expected to drive the Japanese automotive sunroof market.


Restraining Factors

Automotive sunroof installation can be expensive, especially if customers want high-quality panoramic or retractable sunroofs. The additional costs associated with design, engineering, manufacturing, and installation may discourage cost-conscious consumers and hamper market growth. Furthermore, glass or clear synthetic resin is commonly used, and the material's ability to insulate against outside temperature is inferior to that of a standard vehicle roof. Also, regular maintenance is required to ensure that the sunroof is in good working order. Water leakage due to rain is also a possibility through the rubber sealant between the window panel and the roof. They are prohibitively expensive to integrate and repair if they fail. These factors are likely to restrict the market's growth.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the panoramic sunroofs segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on type, Japan automotive sunroof market is segmented into panoramic sunroofs, in-built sunroofs, pop ups, and others. Among these, the panoramic sunroofs segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. It covers a larger area, ensuring that both the front and rear seat occupants benefit from the increased natural freshness. These are frequently offered as standard equipment in high-end vehicles. The ability to close the roof with a slide cover was a significant addition to the panoramic sunroof system, allowing passengers to stay cool inside on a hot sunny day. Nowadays, the visual appearance of a car is prioritized, with the panoramic sunroof as the crowning achievement, providing an attractive look that demands attention. These factors are responsible for the positive growth of this segment.


  • In 2022, the glass segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on material type, the Japan automotive sunroof market is segmented into glass & fabric. Among these, the glass segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The segmental growth can be attributed to technological advancements and material innovations, such as advancements in sunroof glazing, which has reduced overhead safety concerns, and glass that can reflect UV rays. As a result, they allow a direct flow of natural light and improve natural air circulation inside the vehicle, glass sunroofs can reduce reliance on a vehicle's air conditioning system.
