Manufacturers focusing on Light-weight Composite Materials for Automotive Fabric

Automotive fabrics has been helping manufacturers in meeting the sustainable strategy goals, with the provision of advanced products to end-users. The automotive industry has been using various fabrication technologies, may it be for niche motorcycles or for heavy commercial vehicles. Automotive fabric manufacturers are increasingly focusing on adoption of light-weight composite material, which has lower moisture content, and an advanced adhesive technology for improving sealing, vibration, and harshness performance of vehicles.

Automotive fabric has also witnessed a significant adoption in floor covering, owing to its noise and vibration absorption properties. Other factors influencing demand for automotive fabric include its provision of advanced features such as breakage & wear resistant and elasticity, soaring adoption of automobile accessories, and rapid economic development. However, increasing availability of alternative counterparts such as PVC, natural leather, and synthetic leather is expected to remain as a challenge for automotive fabric manufacturers.

A new research analysis report by Future Market Insights (FMI) has projected the global automotive fabric market to ride on an impressive CAGR over the forecast period (2017-2022). Global sales of automotive fabric is estimated to account for approximately US$ 250 Mn revenues by 2022-end.
