High-Density Polyethylene to be the most widely used material for automotive fuel tanks market

Plastic fuel tanks are principally produced using High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). These tanks are lightweight and can be easily molded according to the requirements of OEMs. The demand for plastic fuel tanks is higher than metal fuel tanks, resulting in an increased demand for HDPE. Plastic fuel tanks find application in almost every vehicle segment, including passenger cars, LCVs, and HCVs. As of 2020, plastic fuel tanks are estimated to account for the largest share, in terms of both volume and value, of the global Automotive Fuel Tank Market. The demand for plastic fuel tanks is primarily driven by increasing vehicle production and the growing trend of vehicle weight reduction, which has been triggered by stringent emission norms. Also, there is an increase in the number of passenger and commercial vehicles in developing countries like India as well as developed countries like Japan.

The 45–70L capacity segment is projected to be the largest Automotive Fuel Tank Market, by capacity

The average size of an automobile fuel tank is between 40 and 70 liters. The Automotive Fuel Tank Market is classified into three main categories in terms of capacity—<45 liters, 45–70 liters, and >70 liters. Many passenger vehicles, including mini cars, hatchbacks, and mid-size sedans, fall under the category with a fuel tank capacity of fewer than 45 liters. Many SUVs and luxury cars have tank capacities greater than 70 liters. Among all the three segments, the largest market is for fuel tank capacity with 45-70 liters as the vehicle production for sedans and mini SUVs is growing at a fast rate in Asian and European countries like Japan, China, India, Germany, France, and Spain.
