Automotive Plastic Sales to total US$ 9.5 Bn in 2021; Polypropylene Plastics to Remain Top-selling Material Type: Future Market Insights Survey

– The FMI survey of the automotive plastics market offers insights into key growth drivers and restraints impacting the pace of the market growth. Growth registered across key segments, including channels, vehicle, application, and material will remain positive on account of increasing sales of passenger and commercial vehicles

DUBAI, U.A.E, July 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As per an analysis by FMI, the global automotive plastics market is expected to surpass a valuation of US$ 9.5 billion by the end of 2021, exhibiting growth at a CARG of 9% over the forecast period 2021 to 2031. Owing to the increasing demand for better car aesthetics and interior, the market for automotive plastics is likely to project 1.80% year-on-year growth, reaching a market volume of around 7.5 million tons by 2021.

Increasing demand for commercial & passenger vehicles and flourishing automotive export industry are primal factors propelling the market growth. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, nearly 34,000 commercial vehicles and 117,000 passenger cars were exported from China in April 2021.

Due to their characteristics such as lightweight, resistance to abrasion, scratch proof, and high impact toughness, automotive plastics are considered as ideal choices for manufacturing bumpers, fenders, doors, and other automotive components. Thus, the surging number of passenger cars is estimated to present lucrative sales opportunities for the market over the coming years.

Polypropylene plastics are likely to dominate the material segment owing to the increasing demand for lightweight components by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and high vehicle production rates.

“To abide by government regulations towards environmental safety, automotive manufacturers are prioritizing towards reducing vehicle weight. This also is intended to curb the carbon emission. Such policies adopted by automakers are creating demand prospects for automotive plastics market,” says the FMI analyst.
