Strong Economic Developments will Provide an Impetus to Growth of the US$ 30.8 Billion Automotive Plastics Market

The global automotive plastics market for passenger cars size is projected to grow from USD 21.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 30.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.9%. The demand for automotive plastics is mainly driven by the increase in passenger car production and increasing utilization of automotive plastics in vehicle designs. Plastics offer maximum weight reduction of automobiles, which in turn reduces carbon emission. These could be the major reasons propelling the market.

The shift towards use of bioplastics in vehicle production, use of anti-microbial plastics and additives, use of composites and PMMA and growing trend of vehicle electrification has increased the demand for automotive plastics across the globe. The development in 3D printing technology is expected to act as new opportunities for the automotive plastics market for passenger cars to grow. However, high cost of capital and infrastructure for re-engineering of plastics is expected to hinder the market growth during the forecasted period. 

The under-bonnet is the fastest-growing application segment of the automotive plastics market for passenger cars during the forecast period. Automotive plastics used in the manufacturing of under bonnet components of passenger cars includes Polypropylene, PBT, polyamide, and other engineered plastics. Use of plastics in under bonnet applications provides high durability, high-temperature resistance, strength, and rigidity to automobiles. The under bonnet segment includes components such as the battery, onboard chargers, connectors, cables, electric motor, anti-lock braking system, hoses, hydraulic booster unit, load-sensing valve, master cylinder, metering valve, fuel delivery modules, intake manifolds, brackets, duck work, accumulator pistons pressure differential valve, proportioning valve, and thermal management system which require plastics in their manufacturing.

Polyamide is the fastest-growing product type segment of the automotive plastics market for passenger cars during the forecast period, owing to its enhanced properties, such as impact strength and superior surface finish. Commonly used grades are PA 6 and PA 66. It has various properties such as high stiffness, strength, dimensional stability, high temperature and abrasion resistance, and low friction characteristics, along with chemical, flame, abrasion, creep, and fatigue resistance. Moreover, owing to their excellent strength and toughness at the time of exposure to hot and automotive fluids, polyamides are used for automotive thermal management and other applications areas include gears, bushes, cams, bearings, and weatherproof coatings, etc.

By vehicle type, the electric car segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment. The production of electric cars is expected to grow in countries such as China, India, France, Germany, and the US due to the attractive government policies and stringent emission standards. Thus, with growing sales, and production, use of plastics for an electric car are expected to grow significantly by 2026. Growing trend of vehicle electrification is expected to drive the demand for plastics in electric cars.
