Europe Automotive plastics market Overview:

Automotive plastics are used in passenger cars to manufacture parts such as upholstery, bumpers, interior and exterior moldings, boards and seats. R&D on composite materials, polymers and reinforced plastics provide superior material quality, making it suitable for automobile interior and exterior components. The designer chooses this material very carefully to reduce the weight of the vehicle, meet the load requirements, and improve its durability. Plastics are widely favored by passenger cars due to their characteristics such as ease of lightweight, impact resistance and improved aesthetics compared to other conventional parts.

Europe automotive plastics market value and growth 

The Europe automotive plastics market is driven by improved performance and is expected to develop with an average annual efficiency of 9.42% during the 2021-2026 forecast period to reach USD 1.9 billion.

The rise in per capita income has increased the need for automobiles, providing a favorable growth opportunity for the automotive plastics market in recent years. Europe is the land known for the production of cars, especially Germany. The rise in automobile production and the adoption of advanced technologies fuel the development in the automotive plastics in this area.

Europe Automotive plastics market Segmentation

  • By Type - segmented into Polypropylene, Polyurethane, Polyvinyl Chloride, ABS, Polyamide, HDPE, Polycarbonate, PBT.
  • By Application - segmented into Interior, Exterior, Under Bonnet.


Europe Automotive plastics market Drivers:

Demand for plastic in passenger cars is growing, and car manufacturers are mainly focused on light vehicles. This is expected to accelerate the European Automotive Plastics Market for the growth of passenger cars. Automotive plastics are widely used for a variety of purposes, such as design and the improvement of aesthetics and reduce carbon emissions. It further offers benefits like fuel efficiency, noise reduction and less vehicle vibration, and facilitates the configuration of a single body. This is expected to feed the Europe Automotive Plastics Market over the estimated period. Plastic parts in passenger cars reduce the weight of the vehicle, promoting growth in sales. The recovery in the automotive sector, improved vehicle design capabilities, reduced vehicle weight and increased interest in emission control are key factors that will accelerate the European Automotive Plastics Market growth. 


Plastics are widely used in auto parts due to their easy manufacturing, sourcing of renewable raw materials and improved design. However, process reengineering entails high capital and infrastructure costs, which limits the market expansion to some extent.

Europe Automotive plastics market Regional Analysis

In terms of geographic analysis, Europe automotive plastics industry is classified as the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Poland and Spain. Europe accounted for approximately 35% of the total revenue share in 2018. European car manufacturers are using high-performance plastics. These materials are energy efficient and help reduce the weight of the vehicle. Car manufacturers in European countries have switched from diesel engines to electric motors, owing to strict emission standards in this area. The demand for plastic products is therefore expected to increase in the coming years.
