A composite is a mixture of two or more chemically different & insoluble phases. The structure so formed shows superior properties & structural performance better than the constituents. Composites (Carbon fibers, glass fibers, natural fibers, metal matrix and ceramic matrix) have made a big impact on the entire global market, including the automotive market. Using composite makes the cars lighter and renders greater resistance to heat, external impact and improves fuel efficiency. Almost all the leading car manufacturers are following a trend of replacing metal parts in their high end cars with composite and this trend can be further extended to mid-end and low end cars as well. With extensive research and cost-effective mass production techniques in place, the prices for composites have dropped and this has resulted in a direct increase in their demand for all the application areas including the automotive sector.

The global automotive composites market in terms of value is projected to witness a CAGR of 8.50% between 2014 and 2019 to reach a value of $7,142.37 million. The carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite in the type registered a CAGR of 22.03% in terms of value and is witnessing the fastest growth in the overall automotive composite market. The key factors contributing to the growth of this market are constant need of fuel efficient cars, stringent environment regulations, increased demand from electric & hybrid vehicles, and introduction of various new models with broad usage of automotive composite.

Environmental regulations for low CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency in Europe and the U.S. dictate more fuel efficient vehicles from 2015 onwards. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) raised the standards in the U.S., requiring automakers to raise the average fuel efficiency of new cars and trucks to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, and in the European Union, new CO2 emissions restrictions, which will reduce passenger cars emission limits from 130g of CO2/km today to 95g CO2/km in 2020.

The automotive composite market is projected to witness a CAGR of 8.50% between 2014 and 2019, and is expected to generate a global market value of $7,142.37 million by 2019.

The global automotive composite market is witnessing high growth because of its increasing use in different applications, such as interior and exterior components, chassis & powertrain and others. The growth in the chassis & powertrain application is one of the major drivers for this market. Decreasing cost of automotive composite processing and reduced cycle time are further anticipated to drive the automotive composites market globally in the projected period.

Polymer matrix composite is the most consumed automotive composite market across the world. The market size in terms of value for the same is projected to reach $7,035.66 million by 2019. Most of the automotive composite materials offer superior properties than the conventional materials and have flexible nature, making them moldable in any shape. Use of composites in cars makes it lighter and renders greater resistance to heat, external impact and improves fuel efficiency. Also, automakers are working to meet passenger car emission standards, thereby focusing on vehicle weight reduction.

While exterior components currently form the largest application market for automotive composite, the chassis and powertrain application is witnessing the highest demand. Use of carbon fiber composite in automotive applications has a wide scope of expansion, which in turn would increase the overall use of composites in the automotive industry.

The major consumers of automotive composite market in developing countries include China, India, and Brazil; whereas major consumers in developed countries include the U.S., Japan, Germany, the U.K., and South Korea.

The key participants in this market are Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Owens Corning (U.S.), Johns Manville (U.S.), SGL Group (Germany), Cytec Industries Inc. (U.S.), Koninklijke Ten Cate nv (Netherlands), Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. (Japan), Jushi Group Co. Ltd. (China), and Teijin Limited (Japan).
