Product Description:

Plastics replace steel and other materials that have traditionally been used to make auto parts. This allowed car designers to achieve a variety of electrical, electronic and lighting component designs with better design opportunities and overall vehicle weight reduction. This variety helps reduce the weight of the car, which is the most crucial feature of plastic and is one of the most important reasons to replace steel in most cars. 

Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific automotive plastics market is expected to reach around US$ 25 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period.

Recent Developments and Trends

In January 2015, the White House announced a federal research effort, an advanced innovation laboratory in the manufacturing of composite materials, which combines the research efforts of industry, government and university with fiber-reinforced plastics to accelerate the light compound development in the automotive industry.

Wilmington, Del. Material Giant nylon and other engineering resins play an essential role in unused applications in the real world, and it is estimated that 80% of the top 10 engines most tracked by car publishers use DuPont products for engine cooling, turbo ducts or cargo.

Drivetrain materials engineering, General Motors focused on the current use of plastic parts in gasoline and diesel engines and transmissions. DuPont Automotive believes that designs and engineers continue to look for thermoplastics, especially structural applications, in an effort to save volume and costs.

Market Drivers

The preference for high-performance plastics to replace conventional metals and rubber is expected to drive market growth. Unique properties, such as the versatility and flexibility of plastic materials, have driven innovation in terms of technology and design. Automotive plastics are widely used for a variety of purposes, such as automotive design and the improvement of aesthetics and carbon emissions. Plastic components in automobiles reduce the weight of the vehicle. These properties are expected to promote growth in the APAC market. The plastic in passenger car serves as an insulator for cabin air conditioning. It also offers advantages such as fuel economy, noise reduction and vehicle vibration, and facilitates the design of a single body. This is expected to feed the regional automotive plastics market over the estimated time.


High raw material costs and non-degradable properties of automotive plastics have threatened the growth of the automotive plastics market during the forecast period. 

Market Segmentation

By Application:

Based on the application, the APAC automotive plastics market is classified as under bonnet, interior and exterior applications. Of these, the under-the-hood segment is predicted to dominate the regional market in the coming years, as there is a mounting need to replace conventional automobile components with plastic products.

By Type:

Based on the type, the APAC Automotive Plastics Market is divided into polyamide, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, polycarbonate, HDPE, PET, polyurethane, PMMA and ABS. In 2018, polypropylene emerged as the main category of products, representing 25% of the total volume, as it offers excellent chemical and electrical resistance at very high temperatures. Nonetheless, the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and HDPE segments are likely to grow at an outstanding share during the estimated period.

Regional Analysis

With the demand for new energy vehicles backed by changes in government policy increases, China is likely to dominate the APAC automotive plastics market during the forecast period. With the rise in the middle-class population, the number of consumers trying to buy new cars and pay for after-sales service increased, thereby usage of plastics in vehicles in this country increased. Also, with changes in government policies related to carbon emissions and the provision of subsidies for new energy vehicles, the demand for non-traditional vehicles, including sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and new vehicles is foreseen to increase demand for automotive plastics in China during the forecast period.

Key Players

The main players in the APAC Automotive Plastics Market for passenger car plastics are AkzoNobel N.V., Bayer MaterialScience AG, Lear Corporation, Grupo Antolin-Irausa S.A., BASF SE, Magna International Incorporated, Johnson Controls and Evonik Industries.
