Market Insights

According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the Global Automotive Plastics Market is predicted to value an estimated $56.38 billion by the end of 2023 and observe a significant CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period 2016 to 2023. Due to rising fuel costs, the demand for fuel-efficient automobiles is at an all-time high. As a result, automotive plastics have proven to be extremely popular in the automotive industry due to their lightweight feature which lends itself to improving the fuel efficiency of the final product and services as a key driver of market growth.

Various components that make up a vehicle can be fashioned out of plastic, which has led to rapid growth in applications for automotive plastics. Durability and flexibility of plastics allow for functional and aesthetic designs that contribute toward overall fuel efficiency. In the coming years, it is expected that the demand for lightweight materials in the exteriors of automotives will advance market growth.

The existence of a massive Global Automotive Industry, which is witnessing an especially high demand from emerging economies has to lead to increased production and in turn increase in demand for automotive plastics, thus motivating market growth.

Fluctuating costs of raw material and a growing concern regarding the impact of plastics on the environment are expected to pose restraints on the Global Automotive Plastics Market. However, the potential for new applications in external parts of cars, which presently use metals, and the use of recycled plastic for automotive parts is expected to provide opportunities for the market thus facilitating overall growth.
