Automotive Plastics Market By Product and Application - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2022

Published On : October 2017 Pages : 150 Category: Industrial Automation Report Code : ME10273

Industry Trend Analysis

In 2012, the global automotive plastics market was valued around USD 14.90 billion and is anticipated to reach approximately USD 46.09 billion by 2022, while maintaining a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.70% during the forecast period owing to global resurgence in the automobile segment, enhanced vehicle design and the rising significance of emission control and weight reduction are major factors fueling the growth of the global market. Plastics are extensively used in automotive parts and components due to their potential sourcing from reusable raw materials, relative ease of improved design and easiness of manufacturing. PU, PC, and ABS are a few alternative materials utilized for component and part applications of the vehicle. Generally, depending on performance requirements and fuel economy standards, an average car contains around 5.8% to 10% of plastics. This proportion is anticipated to augment during the approaching years, due to the increasing demand from customers for fuel-efficient, high-performance, and lightweight vehicles. Weight decline also extends a lucrative way to trim down fuel consumption and greenhouse gases emission. The polymerization of plastic monomers using catalysts in chemical reactions to create co-polymers and polymers and are twisted into polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, polycarbonate and other polymerized plastic monomers. These materials hold extremely enhanced properties more than their individual monomers and are tremendously stable for utilizing in fabrication and molding. Designing an automotive is a vital factor as it is related to a variety of exterior forces and also the chance of major impacts. To protect the vehicle’s structural integrity, the materials used in its construction then turn into vital factors for stability and safety. Even though they are comparatively less costly, their manufacturing equipment and design parameters are extremely expensive, which is anticipated to present a challenge for market players.

Product Type Outlook and Trend Analysis

In 2016, polypropylene (PP) issued as the top product type and reported for around 25% of the overall volume. Polypropylene (PP) offers brilliant electrical and chemical resistance at high temperatures. PP is translucent, semi-rigid and also renders integral hinge characteristic. It is light in weight relative to other materials and extensively utilized as a noise & vibration dampeners and thermal insulator in automotive parts. In 2016, Polyurethane (PU) came out as the subsequent leading product section. PU demonstrates advanced properties like abrasive strength, high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, hardness, and impact. Rising demand from electronic appliance manufacturers and automotive OEMs for applications like seat cushioning, refrigeration insulation, and interior trims have considerably influenced the growth of the global market.

Application Outlook and Trend Analysis

In 2016, interior furnishings came out as the top application and reported for around 50% of the overall volume. Plastics are extensively used for automobile interiors counting seat covers, light displays & panels, fascia systems, and steering wheels. Several other interior parts like load floors, seat bases, rear package shelves, and headliners are being built completely from high-performance plastics like ABS & GMT composites, rather than traditional metal and rubber, to promote weight savings. Expansion of digitalization has nurtured the plastics demand integrated into vehicle dashboards to hold highly sophisticated electronics with innovative features & technology. High electrical insulation properties and safety concerns of plastics have fueled their demand of plastics in instrument panels carrying the advanced electronic systems.

Regional Outlook and Trend Analysis

In 2016, Asia Pacific region was the leading market and reported for almost 50% of the overall industry volume. The change in production setting towards developing countries of Asia Pacific region, predominantly India, China, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam is anticipated to influence market growth positively. Intensifying production base and rising investments in sophisticated technologies for automobile production are anticipated to bring a new automobile era, which will impact the sector positively. Customers in Asia Pacific and Europe region are highly aware of fuel efficiency contrary to nations with plenty crude oil reserves, for example, China and the United States. These are the driving factors sustainable plastics demand in developing countries across the world. Europe region has followed Asia Pacific region and in 2016, reported for approximately 35% of the total market revenue share. Automobile manufacturers in European regional market are also using high-performance plastics as they assist in the weight reduction of the automobile and also they are energy efficient. European economies have to fulfill advanced emission standards due to which automotive manufacturers have to move towards electrified motors from diesel engines.

Market Modeling and Forecasting

We use epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to forecast market size of different segments at country and regional level.

  • Epidemiology-based Forecasting Model: This method uses epidemiology data gathered through various publications and from physicians to estimate population of patients, flow of treatment of individual disease and therapies. The data collected through this method includes statics on incidence of disease, population suffering from disease, and treatment population. This method is used to understand:
  • Number of patients for particular device or medical procedure and
  • Repeated use of particular device depending on health and condition of patient
  • Capital-based Forecasting Model: This method of forecasting is based on number of replacements, installed-based and new sales of capital equipment used in various healthcare and diagnostic centers. These three parameters are calculated and forecast is developed. Installation base is calculated as average number of units per facility; while sales for particular year is calculated from number of new and replace units. Secondary data is collected through various supply chain intermediaries and opinion leaders to arrive at installation and sales rate. These techniques help our analysts in validating market and developed market estimates and forecast.

We do forecast on basis of several parameters such as market drivers, market opportunities, industry trends government regulations, raw materials supply and trade dynamics to ensure relevance of forecast with market scenario. With increasing need to granulized information, we used bottom-up methodology for forecasting where we evaluate each regional segment differently and combined all forecast to develop final market forecast.

Data Validation

We believe primary research is a very important tool in analyzing and forecasting different markets. In order to make sure accuracy of our findings, our team conducts primary interviews at every stage of research to gain deep insights into current business environment and future trends and key developments in market. This includes use of various methods such as telephonic interviews, focus groups, face to face interviews and questionnaires to validate our research from all aspects. We validate our data through primary research from key industry leaders such as CEO, product managers, marketing managers, suppliers, distributors, and consumers are frequently interviewed. These interviews provide valuable insights which help us to have better market understanding besides validating our estimates and forecast.
