The electric vehicle plastics market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 27.82% during the forecast period, to reach a market size of USD 1.49 Billion by 2021. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing sales of electric vehicles, stringent fuel emission regulations, favorable government policies for electric vehicles, and light weighting of vehicles.

Objectives of the Study:

  • To define and segment the electric vehicle plastics market
  • To identify the market dynamics and analyze their impact on the electric vehicle plastics market
  • To segment the electric vehicle plastics market and forecast the market size, by value and volume, based on vehicle type (Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV))
  • To segment and forecast the electric vehicle plastics market and ICE passenger cars, by value and volume, based on material type (Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE), Acrylonitrile- Butadiene-Styrene (ABS), Polyurethanes (PE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyamide (PA, Nylon 6/6, Nylon 6), Polycarbonate, Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB), Other engineering resins, and others)
  • To segment and forecast the market size, by value and volume, based on application (Interior, exterior, lighting & electric wiring, and under the hood)

Years considered for the study:

  • 2014- Historic Year
  • 2015- Base Year
  • 2016- Estimated Year
  • 2018 & 2021- Projected Years

The research methodology used in the report involves primary and secondary sources. Secondary sources include associations such as European Association for Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (AVERE), International Energy Agency (IEA), Euro Plastics and paid databases and directories such as Factiva and Bloomberg. In the primary research stage, experts from related industries, manufacturers, and suppliers have been interviewed to understand the present situation and future trends of the electric vehicle plastics market. The electric vehicle plastics market, in terms of volume (tons/ kilotons) and value (USD thousand/USD million), for various regions, vehicle type, material, and application has been derived by using forecasting techniques based on electric vehicle sales trends. The OEM prices of plastic materials have been verified through primary sources.

The figure below illustrates the break-up of the profile of industry experts who participated in primary discussions.

The electric vehicle plastics market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 27.82% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 1.49 Billion by 2021. Major drivers of this market include the favorable government policies, which lead to an increase in the sales of electric vehicles, stringent emission regulations, demand for lightweighting to achieve fuel efficiency, and the demand for better ergonomics.

Plastics used for interior applications constitute the fastest growing segment globally, in terms of value. The interior application of a passenger car includes the dashboard, seats, interior trim, and car upholstery. Around 50%–55% of plastic is used in the interior of a passenger car, which is largely made up of Polypropylene (PP), Acrylonitrile- Butadiene-Styrene (ABS), Polycarbonate (PC), and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Plastics in the interior of a car allow designers to have enhanced flexibility in styling, manufacturing, and assembling automotive components with reduced costs and weight reduction. Additionally, the plastics enhance the luxury and comfort inside the cabin.

PP is the fastest growing plastic material type used in electric vehicles. According to MarketandMarkets analysis, the average percentage of PP employed in a passenger car is increasing, owing to characteristics such as better heat resistance, protection from Ultraviolet (UV) radiations, high strength, and flexibility. According to LyondellBasell Industries (one of the key plastics, chemical, and refining companies) an average passenger car employs 0.066 tons (60 kg) of PP, which is around 25%–30% of the total plastic employed in a passenger car. Thus, the material contributes significantly to the electric vehicle plastics market.

Asia-Oceania is estimated to dominate the electric vehicle plastics market, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. China is putting in substantial efforts to become a leader in the electric vehicle market, with the government trying to make the country a hub for electric vehicle manufacturing. The local players include BYD, Chery, Zoelte, and Kandi Technologies, which dominate the market. The other key country in Asia-Oceania, Japan, has sold 150,000 electric vehicles as of 2015, and has 40,000 charging points for electric vehicles. Japan is the only country whose charging points exceed petrol stations (35,000), according to Asian Correspondent. Such factors make Asia-Oceania the leading electric vehicles market, boosting the plastics market for electric vehicles in the region.

Electric Vehicle Plastics Market

A key factor restraining the growth of the electric vehicle plastics market is the lack of charging infrastructure for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV). Adequate charging infrastructure is crucial to the growth of electric vehicles, as in the case of BEVs and PHEVs, an electric motor is the main source of power. The electric vehicle plastics market is dominated by a few global players, and comprises several regional players. Some of the key manufacturers operating in the market are BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), and Plastic Omnium (France)
