Strong Growth Predicted For The Auto Glass Industry

Auto Glass Industry Growth

NOVUS Glass, the international leader in auto glass replacement, sees nothing but blue skies ahead for their franchisees. According to a report recently released by Market Research Engine, the automotive glass market is expected to grow more than $25.5 Billion by 2022. The more cars sold, the more NOVUS business owners will be needed in their communities, providing expert automotive window glass replacement and repair.

Auto glass is a specialized industry, and the glass is significantly different than window glass. The glass in an auto’s windows does a lot more than protect passengers from the elements. The technology used in creating automotive glass takes into account the many incidents an auto will experience over its lifetime, including potholes and rocks, items falling off other vehicles, and fender-benders. The glass increases the integrity of the car while protecting the occupants. By supplying the highest quality products with the newest technology, NOVUS Glass franchisees are some of the most successful in the industry.

NOVUS invented windshield repair in 1972 when an entrepreneur bought the patent rights and designed a business plan to bring this service to people everywhere. For 45 years, NOVUS has been and remains the industry’s research and development pioneer. NOVUS has been awarded more U.S. Patents for windshield repair than the rest of the windshield repair industry combined.

The quality of the product for replacement or repair is a crucial element needed when doing a repair of a damaged windshield or window. A poorly installed or repaired windshield can cause accidents. NOVUS franchisees and their technicians have extensive, hands-on training as part of their orientation. A customer of a NOVUS location can expect superior products and service. In fact, the NOVUS quality promise is part of their branding: “We believe that it is our responsibility to consistently provide the highest quality of service and products in the market. This is going beyond customer expectations and doing what is right.”

“People don’t spend a lot of time considering their vehicle windows,” said Jan-Marie Hall, Franchise Development Director. “At least not until a rock shatters their windshield. But when it happens, they want service quickly, affordably, and they want the windshield restored to its original specifications. That’s what we provide.”

According to the website Statista, some 81.6 million automobiles are expected to be sold worldwide by the end 2018.”That’s a lot of vehicles, many of which will need window repair or replacement over a lifetime,” added Hall. “It is an opportunity for NOVUS franchisees, one that grows along with the automotive industry.”

With over 2,000 locations in 43 countries on 6 continents, a NOVUS franchisee instantly becomes a part of worldwide brand recognition. NOVUS has grown for over 45 years and continues to do so. NOVUS’ recent acquisition by Fix Auto, a body shop franchisor based in Quebec, Canada, has further expanded the reach of the NOVUS brand around the world.
