Automotive Carbon Thermoplastic Market Size-(2023-2028)

Automotive Carbon Thermoplastic Market was valued at 150.36 million USD in 2022, and it is expected to progress with a CAGR of 31% during the forecast period of 2023-2028. By 2028, the valuation of the industry is supposed to reach 550 million USD. 

Drivers and Restraints of the Global Automotive Carbon Thermoplastic Market

The electronics industry is one of the biggest industries in the world. Automotive carbon thermoplastic is quickly replacing traditional materials in many manufacturing and industrial sectors and thus this adoption of the former is driving the market demand throughout the world. Automotive carbon thermoplastic provides a robust solution for lightweight components at a relatively cheap cost for the automotive industry and thus many of them are switching to this low-cost alternative. Increasing usage of plastics and lightweight materials in the aerospace industry is also a driving factor for the automotive carbon thermoplastics market across the globe.

In Europe, the high demand for these thermoplastics is mainly credited to the well-established automobile sector in the nations like Germany. The vehicle industry is in great need of lightweight materials to control emission concerns. Composite thermoplastics as mentioned earlier offer that solution at a very low cost. The transportation industry has also increased the demand for this material in the last few years.

The stringent government norms for making these thermoplastics are acting as a major limitation to the global automotive carbon thermoplastics market. Also, the fluctuations in the prices of raw materials, the trade issues between developed nations, and the lack of awareness of these products in some of the developing countries are acting as serious challenges to the expansion of this business.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Automotive carbon thermoplastic Market

Coronavirus has had a morose impact on various production markets across the nations in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. The automotive industry is one of the hardest-hit industries because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the imposed lockdown in several countries. The production activities were low, and people during this time did not look forward to purchasing vehicles. The disruption in the supply chain resulted in delays or non-arrival of raw materials, disrupted financial flows, and declining morale among production line workers that pushed them to function at reduced or zero capacities. This has led to a reduction in demand for carbon thermoplastics. However, the market is supposed to recover from 2021 onwards.
