Automotive Headliners Market size is likely to cross USD 19 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Emphasis on lightness and carbon emission reduction to prosper market demand
Focus on the overall weight reduction to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emission of vehicles will be chief factors supporting automotive headliners industry expansion. Superior stiffness, lightness, and strength provided by modern plastics have resulted in their extensive adoption as a feasible interior solution. Weight reduction in a vehicle is a key approach to enhance its overall fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency of a passenger car can be improved by 6% to 8% and approximately 10% effectiveness in the case of electric vehicles can be achieved through an overall weight reduction by 10%.
Modern plastics and composites have a huge potential in the development of advanced and energy-efficient vehicles. Major players in the global automotive industry are emphasizing the reduction of carbon emission and environmental impacts by adopting green materials for their interior components. Ford Motors adopted bio-based polyurethane foams for the headliners in its 11 models, helping the company to effectively reduce carbon footprints. High costs associated with advanced overhead systems and headliners might hamper product consumption.
