The interior materials are an essential part of the car because they improve the mood of the vehicle, provide the pleasure of driving and maximize the comfort of the driver and the passenger. They are also light, soft, but powerful to protect in case of traffic accidents. Efficient interior materials reduce engine vibration inside the car, minimize fatigue and provide excellent insulation.
The APAC Automotive Interior Materials Market is expected to reach US$ 67,609.46 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR around 13.3% over the forecast period.
Recent Developments and Trends
In April 2017, Toyota Boshoku Corporation and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. considered a shock-resistant plastic manufacturing association for interiors of seats and doors or automotive applications.
In 2016, Volvo designed the interior of the XC90 so that there was no difference between the seating arrangement of the T8 plug-in hybrid model and the conventional T6 powertrain model.
Mercedes-Benz presented the latest information on autonomous vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show. Vision Tokyo omits the traditional seating arrangement for a modern lounge concept. "If you have to drive the car manually, you can unwind the seat in the direction of travel in the center of the front sofa, not the" jump seat "in the airplane cabin."
Ford launched a schedule of other experiments on the supply of sustainable materials, including the first car manufacturer to use soy-based foams in seats and upholstery in 2007, the US currency recycled and crushed into small containers and coins in 2012, and Tomato skins for wiring stands and storage containers in 2014.
The demand for APAC Automotive Interior Materials Market is growing at a rapid pace, mainly due to the need to verify quality standards in the automotive industry. Many of the first developments in the automotive sector are continually growing in all markets directly or indirectly related to this sector. Automotive Interior Materials significantly improve comfort, congenital conditions and the atmosphere inside the car, and customers consider all these factors when buying a car.
In addition, Automotive Interior Materials are used to make seat belts, airbags and other safety aids, which improves vehicle safety. Automotive quality tests have become an integral part of the car manufacturing process, and these tests help verify the reliability of the car manufacturer. To pass such tests, there must be high-quality internal and external materials inside the vehicle, which is an essential reason for the growth of the APAC market for automotive interior materials. The growth of the luxury vehicle market is helping the expansion of this market, as the interiors of luxury vehicles are of utmost significance.
The expenses related to the use of genuine leather in the manufacturing of interior parts, along with the environmental concerns, are limiting the market in the APAC region. The leather processing industry is affected by strict environmental regulations in most developed markets, where local manufacturers in the region have difficulty maintaining profitability.
The APAC Automotive Interior Materials Market can be classified by type of material and application.
In terms of types of materials, the APAC automobile interior materials market can be divided into leather, polymers, fabric, vinyl, and wood. The leather segment can be divided into leather, PU leather and PVC leather, which is currently dominating the regional market. Fabrics are also expected to register high growth rate in the coming years as they are mainly used for aesthetic and comfortable purposes.
In terms of vehicle type, APAC Automotive Interior Materials Market can be classified into passenger vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles and light commercial vehicles. Among these, the passenger vehicles segment accounted for the dominant share in the local market due to the increasing production and the rising consumer disposable income.
