The automotive interior material market is growing at a CAGR of 12.79% between 2014 and 2019 and is expected to generate the global market size in terms of value with $82.52 billion by 2019.

The report on automotive interior materials includes six different types of materials. These are fabrics, genuine leather, artificial PI leather, artificial PVC leather, synthetic leather, and thermoplastic polymer. The global market is witnessing high growth because of increasing demand for automobiles, technological advancements, and growing demand in North America and Asia-Pacific regions. They are largely used for manufacturing upholstery, carpets, airbags, seat-belts, headliners, and so on. Growth for the automotive interior material market is driven by thespeedydevelopment in the automotive industry across the world. The artificial PU leather and fabrics market growth are the major market drivers for automotive interior materials. Rising prices for genuine leather and stringent regulations in European and North American markets are the major stumbling blocks for this market.

The incorporation of green technology and nanotechnology in automotive industry is expected to be the major growth opportunity for automotive interior materials market players to increase their market shares and business revenue. The use of environment-friendly leather, green chemistry in tanning process, and safe disposal of waste water in leather treatment process could be potential factors in rejuvenating the growth of genuine leather. The incorporation of nanotechnology in the automotive industry to develop lighter and more durable products will allow weight reduction and improved fuel efficiency of vehicles. On the other hand, various regulations are enforcedat each level of the supply chain. To achieve profitability and sustainability in such a scenario,the market players have to find the best compromise between the regulatory framework and manufacturing costs.

The synthetic leatheris the largest segment of the automotive interior materials market across the world. The market for the same is valued at $18.45 billion by 2019.

The key participants in the global automotive interior material market include Borgers A.G.(Germany), BASF S.E. (Germany), DuPont (U.S.), FaureciaS.A. (France), Lear Corporation (U.S.), Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), International Textile Group (U.S.), Johnson Controls Inc. (U.S.), Eagle Ottawa (U.S.), Sage Automotive Interiors (U.S.), Katzkin Leather Interiors Inc. (U.S.), DK Leather Corporation (Malaysia), and so on. This report follows both top-down and bottom-up approaches to estimate and forecast the global automotive interior materials market size by volume and value.
