Frequently Asked Questions about Global Automotive Composites Market
How will the automotive composites market progress in the future?
Composite parts and components weigh a lot less than their metallic counterparts; hence, their implementation in the construction of a vehicle leads to weight reduction, which is beneficial as it reduces fuel consumption, and thereby, emissions. These factors are expected to increase the usage of advanced automotive composites by carmakers in the foreseeable future, in order to ensure compliance with stringent emission norms, globally.
Will increase in material procurement and processing of composite material affect the future trajectory of the market?
Yes, with increasing technical complexity and increasing demand for high-quality composite parts, the cost of raw material and manufacturing process of automotive composite parts will remain high in comparison to metal-based parts. Five areas incur major costs from the perspective of automotive composites - fiber, resin, consumables, machining costs, and labor. A slightest increase in these prices directly affects the growth of the automotive composite market.
Which material type holds potential growth opportunities for market players?
The most preferred and dominant material in the current scenario is glass fiber, which will remain in that position in the coming years. Preference of manufacturers for glass fiber will hold an attractive prospect for both, OEMs and aftermarket players.
What is the degree of competition in the automotive composites market?
The global automotive composites market is fairly competitive, with numerous organized players operating in the landscape. Entry of organized and well-established players in the market can lead to profitability, owing to improved products and growing demand placed by automotive OEMs for lighter parts. Tier-II and III players in the market occupy almost 60% market share.
Which region will lead the global sales of automotive composites?
North America and Western Europe hold nearly 40% of the overall global automotive composite market. However, strong growth in the automotive composites market is expected in developing countries, especially in China and India, due to the presence of large automotive manufactures in these regions.
Glass Fiber Composite Accounts for 50% Share
Owing to its cost-efficient and high structural strength, glass fiber composite continues to account for greater preference as compared to other automotive composites such as natural and aramid fiber composites. However, carbon fiber composite is also gaining increasing share of the global market revenue, as it ticks the boxes of lightweight and high electrical conductivity potential. Further, natural fiber composite is also finding application in the designing and manufacturing of seat backs, door panels, and automotive load floors.
Developed Regional Markets Continue to Engage Stakeholders
The booming automotive industry would be the key factor shaping the automotive composites market, in both, developed and developing regions, throughout the period of projection. The markets in North America and Western Europe are supported by increasing production of mid-size cars, luxury cars, and SUVs. China leads the automotive industry when it comes to the production of compact and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs), which is also attracting significant stakeholder investments in the region. However, the recent slowdown in auto sales in the country is anticipated to pose as a possible threat for automotive composites market players.
Considering Agricultural Sector for Potential Sales Opportunities
The agricultural sector accounts for a major contribution to a country’s gross domestic product (GDP). Governments, in order to improve agricultural productivity, are honing in on high-performance tractors and threshers that are efficient in terms of time and fuel. Market players should explore white spaces in the agricultural sector, despite their meager share in the revenue of the automotive composites market.
Glass fiber composite accounts for highest revenue share
Carbon fiber composite to see substantial demand growth
Thermoset takes the lead
Thermoplastic to see rapid adoption
High application in interior
Increasing rate of application in exterior
Surging usage in passenger cars
Adoption in LCVs to rise rapidly
How Growth will Unfold
Accounting for nearly 3/5 of total sales, thermoset resins will remain the top-selling category in the automotive composites market, primarily owing to their cost effectiveness and high mechanical properties. In 2022, thermostat resins worth around US$ 5 Bn will be sold, globally. However, as the recycling of thermostat resins is extremely difficult, they are likely to lose their market share to thermoplastic resins.
