This Future Market Insights Report examines the ‘Automotive Plastics’ market for the period 2015–2020. The primary objective of the report is to offer insights about the market and potential market opportunities in the BRIC automotive plastics market. The usage of plastic components in automobiles is increasing at considerable pace across the globe.

Automotive plastics are used to manufacture various components such as lighting system, seating system, auto carpet and bumper. Versatile properties of plastics such as easy moldability, scratch resistance, thermal stability, impact strength and resistance to abrasion give them an edge over other materials which make them suitable for use in manufacturing of automobile components. Apart from this, reduction in manufacturing cost, durability and toughness of plastics have encouraged manufacturers to increase usage of plastics in various components such as doors, bumpers, fenders and others. All these components are used in three major applications, namely, exterior, interior and under bonnet.
