Automotive films are thin laminate films that are installed on the exterior or interior of window glass surfaces to provide security and privacy to the passengers in the vehicle. These films are manufactured from different materials, including polycarbonate, polyester, polystyrene, and polyvinyl chloride. Automotive films block the solar ultraviolet radiations and increase the overall appearance of the vehicle. The Europe automotive films market is mainly driven by the growing popularity of electric cars in the region. In 2021, Germany held the largest market share in terms of revenue in the Europe automotive films market.

In recent years, there has been tremendous adoption of new advanced technologies such as the advanced driver assistant system (ADAS) in Europe. The rising adoption of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in European countries is further influencing the demand for electric cars. According to the European Environmental Agency (EEA), 2021 saw a significant increase in the uptake of electric cars and vans in the EU-27. Electric car registrations for 2021 were close to 1,729,000, up from 1,061,000 in 2020. This represents an increase from 10.7% to 17.8% in the share of total new car registrations in just one year.
