New Styling Options and Decorative Custom Finishes Likely to Stimulate Interest in Sunroof Deflectors

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

The North American sunroof deflector aftermarket is in a state of transition. Older product lines and designs are witnessing a decline in demand and are being replaced with new products that include customized design options. These new products offer strong growth potential because they reflect vehicle owners' changing perceptions of sunroof deflectors, as decorative, rather than utility products.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, Strategic Analysis of the North American Sunroof Deflector Aftermarket, reveals that the market earned revenues of $9.7 million in 2006 and estimates to reach $10.8 million in 2013.

"Anecdotal evidence suggests that some car and truck owners purchase sunroofs deflectors because they appeal to the consumer's sense of style," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Stephen Spivey. "The introduction of new, customized finishes and decorative options increasingly drives the purchase decisions of vehicle owners and distributors. In addition, decorative sunroof deflectors command a higher average price, which contributes to increased overall revenues."

Vehicle owners are increasingly choosing sunroof deflectors for decorative purposes and not as functional products. This is reflected in their preferences for customized or painted finishes as an alternative to the standard smoked finish. There has been a trend to pay more for these customized accessories in the aftermarket that reflect the personal styles of different end-user groups.

However, many vehicle owners purchase sunroof deflectors from the auto dealer when they buy the vehicle instead of going through the aftermarket. Leading vehicle manufacturers have successful programs in place to sell sunroof deflectors to vehicle owners as factory-installed, port-installed, or dealer-installed options. As a result, it is critical for aftermarket competitors to sell sunroof deflectors directly to automakers and/or their franchised dealers.

"Aftermarket manufacturers must consider strategies to penetrate the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) sales channel in order to meet long-term growth objectives," explains Spivey. "In the future, it is likely that an increasing number of vehicle owners will purchase such accessories when they buy the vehicle at the dealership instead of buying them through the aftermarket."

The aftermarket must continue to introduce new products that give vehicle owners an incentive to choose an aftermarket accessory over an OEM part. This requires manufacturers to employ a talented research and development team that can improve the exterior protection accessories that come with the vehicle, including sunroof deflectors, while also creating new accessory categories that are available exclusively in the aftermarket.
