The automotive fabrics market size was USD 28.81 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 34.35 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 3.3% between 2016 and 2021. In this study, 2015 has been considered as the base year, and 2016–2021 as the forecast period for estimating market size of automotive fabrics.

Objectives of the study:

  • To analyze and forecast the market size of automotive fabrics in terms value and volume
  • To define, describe, and segment the global automotive fabrics market by product, application, and region
  • To forecast the sizes of the product and application market segments for regions such as Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • To provide detailed information regarding the important factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities)
  • To strategically analyze the segmented markets with respect to individual growth trends, prospects, and contribution to the overall market
  • To identify and analyze opportunities for stakeholders in the market
  • To analyze competitive developments such as expansions, joint ventures, agreements, acquisitions, and new product developments in the global automotive fabrics market
  • To strategically profile key players and comprehensively analyze their core competencies

Research Methodology:

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for vehicle type (passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy trucks, and buses & coaches); application (floor covering, upholstery, pre-assembled interior components, tires, airbags, safety belts, and others) and for various regions (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, Middle East & Africa) is identified through both secondary and primary research. The overall automotive fabrics market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual markets. The automotive fabrics market has been further segmented based on application, using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGRs) trends of the automotive fabrics, the applications – floor covering, upholstery, pre-assembled interior components, tires, airbags, safety belts, and others have been analyzed. Secondary resources include annual reports, press releases and investor presentations of companies; white papers; certified publications; articles from recognized authors; and gold standard & silver standard websites such as Factiva, ICIS, Bloomberg, and so on. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and other executives. The breakdown of profiles of the primary interviewees is illustrated in the below figure:
