Automotive Plastics Market worth over $ 50bn by 2024
Published Date: January 31, 2018 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Automotive Plastics Market size is set to surpass USD 50 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Rising passenger cars production along with consumer demand for fuel efficient, durable and light weight vehicles should stimulate automotive plastics industry demand. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in India, Japan, and China will propel the demand for commercial vehicles, SUV’s, modern cars and HMV’s. Rising per capita income and improving living standards will create demand for stylish and high aesthetics cars thereby stimulating industry growth.
Automotive plastics are preferably used in various auto bodies and parts including chassis, power train, electronic components under the hood, exterior and interior furnishings and fuel systems. It is durable, scratch resistant, abrasion resistance, allows effective design molding, component integration and improves vibration and noise control in automobiles. Expanding manufacturing hubs along with government spending for advanced technology may contributes towards automotive plastics industry growth.
North America automotive plastics market size, with steady gains in the U.S. and Canada is poised to exceed USD 5 billion up to 2024 owing to rise in consumer preferences for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles. Rising OEM manufacturers demand towards reducing vehicle weight and providing cost effective solutions may have a positive influence on the regional growth. Stringent government standards and rules by CAFÉ regarding CO2 emission and fuel economy has resulted in OEMs to search for other methods to reduce vehicular weight to improve fuel efficiency.
Major raw materials, PU, ABS, PMMA, PVC, and PP are used in the manufacturing process of automotive plastics. Lack of standardization of plastic materials along with sustainability issues will be a major challenge and may impact industry growth.
