Market Segment insights

The polyethylene segment is projected to constitute a large market share

Based on material, the automotive plastics market is segregated into polycarbonate, polymethyl methacrylate, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, polyamide, and others. The polyethylene segment is expected to account for a key share of the market during the forecast period owing to rising product demand from end-use industries such as packaging, construction, consumer products, electrical and electronics, and automotive; however, polyvinyl chloride segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to its applications in sealants, underbody coatings, and floor modules, wire harnesses, passenger compartment parts, and exterior parts.

The under bonnet segment is expected to register a substantial CAGR

Based on application, the market is divided into interior, exterior, under bonnet, and others. The under bonnet segment accounts for a key share of the market and is estimated to propel even further over the forecast period owing to properties such as heat and chemical resistance of plastics which is most crucial for under bonnet applications such as turbo chargers, is making it possible for small engines to meet high-profile performance requirements; however, interior segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to growing demand for automotive plastics in an area such as seat covers, body and light panels, seat bases, steering wheels, headliners, load floors, and rear package shelves and fascia systems are expected to drive the market of automotive plastics.

Global Automotive Plastics Market application
