Introduction

Windshield wiper blades are devices that are used in various forms of vehicles to protect glass from dirt, water and snow, thus ensuring that the windows or glass remain clean. The major components of a windshield wiper blade include a pivot socket, a spring steel sheet, two end ferrules, and a rubber strip. The spring steel sheet plays a major role in the wiper blade as it produces dispersive pressure to ensure all the parts of the blade can bear average force uniformly, thus making the windscreen resistant to scratch and rain marks. The market for windshield wiper blades has witnessed significant growth due to rising demand from various end-use industries such as automotive and aviation.

Market Dynamics

The increase in use of bone and boneless wiper blades in domestic and industrial applications as well as increasing technological investments by leading players have led to the growth of windshield wiper blades market globally. Increased use of windshield wiper blades in automotive sector is expected to change the dynamics of the market in near future. The major challenges can be attributed to the stringent government regulations, poor performance of aftermarket windshield wiper blades, and threat of substitutes.

Market Classification and Overview

The windshield wiper blades market is bifurcated on the basis of type, application, end use industry, and geography. The windshield wiper blades market by type is divided into two broad categories, namely, boneless wiper blades and bone wiper blades. Bone windshield wiper blade is the largest and most mature market as it caters to almost every type of application. Boneless windshield wiper blades is the fastest growing market owing to major factors such as its ability to withstand high pressure, increased elasticity to reduce jitter abrasion, light weight, uniform force and long shelf life. Based on application, the market is segmented into aftermarket and original equipment manufacturers (OEM). OEMs segment dominates the application market for windshield wiper blades owing to its sturdy design, high optical quality ensuring adequate performance and good pressure points. The windshield wiper blades used in aftermarket are cheaper than OEMs, and are frameless and can fit to any vehicle. However, they still are not highly preferred owing to its low optical quality, lack of pressure points and poor performance. Based on end use industry, the market is further segmented into automotive and aviation among others. Automotive segment accounts for majority of the global consumption of windshield wiper blades and led the global market followed by aviation sector. Automotive is also projected to be the fastest growing market owing to increase in demand and production of passenger vehicles leading to an increase in use of windshield wiper blades in vehicles globally.

Regional Overview

The market for windshield wiper blades is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). North America was the major contributors to the growth of windshield wipers market in 2015. Asia-Pacific was the second biggest market followed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific market is further projected to witness highest growth in coming years owing to the growth of automotive industry in the region.
