The global automotive composite market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Automotive composites are materials made using a combination of high-performance fibers, such as carbon or glass, and adhesive binders like epoxy polymer. They are applied on different automotive parts, ranging from forward-facing headlamps through beneath-the-hood electrical and heat-shielding to the exterior body and interior structures. As these composites offer ease in manufacturing, high stiffness and strength, and excellent energy-absorbing and dimensional stability, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) across the globe are replacing steel with automotive composites to improve the safety, durability, and fuel efficiency of vehicles.
Due to severe air pollution, environmental agencies of numerous countries are implementing strict regulations for minimizing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from automobiles. This represents one of the key factors encouraging OEMs around the world to adopt new technologies, such as automotive composites, to reduce the weight of vehicles and maintain their strength and structural integrity. This is also being supported by the rising digitalization, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), and the growing focus on redesigning existing vehicles with increased safety and performance. Apart from this, the leading players are developing low-cost manufacturing methods for automotive composites, which is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, governing agencies of several countries are encouraging the utilization of automotive composites, which is anticipated to influence the market positively. For instance, the National Composites Center (NCC) of Japan has pursued a technology development project to improve the function of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composites for automotive structures. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global automotive composite market to grow at a CAGR of around 9% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
