Automotive Wipers Market Analysis by Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast

Automotive wipers are commonly known as windshield wipers. Such wipers are used for the purpose of removing dirt, water and snow from the windshield of a vehicle. An automotive wiper is a metal arm attached with a rubber blade on the lower part of the windshield of a vehicle. Some vehicles also have wipers installed in front of headlights and the back glass. In most of the vehicles the wiper is powered by an electric motor whereas in few vehicles it is pneumatic powered. The major types of automotive wipers are standard hinged wiper blades, hingeless wiper blades and winter wiper blades. Standard hinged wiper blades are installed in most vehicles, which have light stamped metal frames with numerous pivots. These wipers have been used over a decade and very economical to the buyers.

In extreme winter condition, the metal frame of the wiper collects ice from the windshield. This makes the wiper less effective by not allowing the rubber edges of the wiper to press against the glass. Therefore, such wiper blades need to be cleaned regularly under extreme cold conditions. Hingeless wiper blades on the other hand is made up of flexible plastic. As there is no metal frame, there is less surface for ice and snow to build up on.

In addition, there are no hinges to limit the range of movement of the wiper. Hingeless wiper blades are premium blades, which are priced higher than standard hinged wiper blades. Winter wiper blades are similar to standard hinged wiper blades having a metal frame and a rubber edge but unlike standard hinged wiper blades, winter wiper blades has its entire frame encased in a rubber boot. This makes it difficult for the ice and snow to stagnate on the surface of wiper. Winter wiper blades are excellent for cold conditions but during the summer, the rubber boot can deteriorate quickly resulting in crack or tear.
