Future Market Insights’ newly published report examines the automotive composite market and offers crucial market insights for the next 10 years. According to the report, the thermoset automotive composite resin material is expected to dominate the market accounting for over 62.9% share in overall market value by 2028 end, thereby registering a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period (2018-2028). The estimated value of the global automotive composite market in 2018 is US$ 7,231.7 Mn and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.4% to reach US$ 12,202.5 Mn by the end of 2028.
Factors Influencing Growth in Demand for Automotive Composite
Growing environmental awareness and fluctuating fuel prices have influenced consumers, especially in the developed countries of Europe and North America, to opt for electric car models, such as battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). Increasing urban population, incentives for electric vehicles, decreasing battery prices, strengthening transportation infrastructure in emerging and developed countries and inter-governmental initiatives for electric vehicles are further driving the adoption of electric cars, which in turn is expected to contribute to the growth of automotive composites during the forecast period as automotive composites help tremendously improve the mileage and recue the weight of the vehicle.
Governments of different countries have put immense pressure on automotive manufactures to reduce vehicle weight to achieve fuel economy. Nowadays, the weight of the main vehicle modules in newer vehicles are much lighter than traditional metal bodywork, which were nearly 20% percent heavier than today’s modules. Manufacturers are heavily investing in R&D and manufacturing strategy to reduce the weight of several vehicle body components. OEMs prefer composite based materials over traditional raw materials (steel) for specific applications, which helps reduce considerable weight of vehicles, representing technological advancements over other materials.
