Pillars are vertical support in automotive. These are installed around all the glass on a vehicle and play an important role in holding the glass in their place, thus adding structural integrity to a vehicle. Automotive pillars are generally classified into A pillar, B pillar, C pillar, and D pillar. A-pillar aids in retention of windshield in place, B pillar aids in offering good structural support for the roof of the vehicle, C pillar aids in fixing the rear window of vehicle in place, and D pillar aids in fixing the sides of a rear window of vehicle in their place. The specialty of an automotive pillar is aiding to increase a crashworthiness and providing structural stability of the vehicle.
Global Automotive Pillars Market Dynamics
- Rising demand for light weight products
The manufacturers of automotive pillar are improving their product by reducing the weight though improving the load carrying capability.
