The global market size reached US$ 40.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 53.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% during 2023-2028.

Automotive plastics represent specialty materials that are specifically designed to improve vehicle safety, structure, performance, aesthetics, and functionality. They include polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), nylon, polyethylene (PE), polyoxymethylene (POM), polyurethane (PU), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polycarbonate (PC), etc. Automotive plastics aid in extending the life of automobiles, reducing manufacturing costs, increasing design flexibility, easing the integration of components, etc. In addition to this, these materials also assist in lowering the weight of vehicles by replacing heavy elements, such as glass and metal, to save energy and improve fuel efficiency. As a result, automotive plastics find widespread applications in powertrains, electrical components, interior and exterior furnishings, under the hood, chassis, etc.

Automotive Plastics Market Trends and Drivers:

The widespread adoption of hybrid vehicles (HVs) across the globe is among the primary factors driving the automotive plastics market. Besides this, the rising need for these materials in the production of wheel covers, suspension bushings, dashboards, carpet fibers, fuel tanks, truck bed liners, mud flaps, bumpers, gears, headlamp lenses, etc., is further augmenting the market growth. Moreover, the escalating demand for synthetic coatings on metal surfaces to minimize the risk of corrosion caused by high heat, salt damage, and water exposure is catalyzing the global market. Apart from this, the continuous technological advancements and extensive R&D activities by leading manufacturers are acting as significant growth-inducing factors. Furthermore, the increasing usage of nylon for producing seat belts and airbags, on account of its tear-resistant properties, is also stimulating the market growth. In line with this, the inflating popularity of luxury and premium cars, owing to the growing consumer expenditure capacities and improving living standards, is expected to bolster the automotive plastics market in the coming years.
