The rapid expansion of the automotive plastics market is due to the increasing production of vehicles, the implementation of strict emission control regulations and the increasing acceptance of lightweight construction materials in the automotive industry.

According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), global vehicle production reached over 40.33 million in 2021 (Jan-June). The demand for plastics for the automotive industry is increasing in response to the increasing production of lightweight vehicle components. According to FMI, the demand for plastics in the automotive industry is increasing overall 40,941.0 kilotons in 2021.

Automotive plastics are generally durable, strong, recyclable, scratch-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and lightweight. They improve vibration and noise control and enable the design, molding and integration of components in automobiles. These properties make automotive plastics very popular in vehicle construction.

The implementation of stringent emissions regulations is encouraging automotive OEMs to replace metal parts with components made from polymers. Coupled with this, the increase in the production of electric vehicles will drive demand for automotive plastics as automakers want to offer higher fuel efficiency.

According to FMI, the polypropylene segment is estimated at around 26.6% of all plastics consumption in the automotive industry. Polypropylene has become a commonly used plastic in the automotive sector. As a thermoplastic polymer, polypropylene can easily be brought into almost any shape. As a result, it is widely used in passenger cars, particularly in the manufacture of vehicle bumpers.

“Plastic sales in the automotive industry are expected to pick up as the focus on manufacturing lightweight vehicles increases. Some of the leading market players have recognized this as a lucrative opportunity to increase their presence through product launches,” says an FMI analyst.
