The automotive plastic additives market is estimated to be USD 6.25 Billion in 2017, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.52% during the forecast period. The base year for the report is 2016 and the forecast year is 2022. The objective of the study is to analyze and forecast (2017 to 2022) the market size, in terms of volume (kilotons) and value (USD million), of the automotive plastic additives market. Plastic has the capability to replace components made out of other materials such as metal and aluminium. The properties of plastic have been improved with the proper mix of plastic resins and compounds, which are a mix of additives, fillers, colorants, and agents. Due to the characteristics of compounds, plastics are now used in the automotive industry for different applications. The applications from exterior and interior to under the hood and electronics & electrical have been customized in plastic due to the compound’s functional properties. The applications in the automotive industry keep on increasing owing to the need for lightweight materials. Plastics are being used due to their excellent design flexibility and light weight. The report segments the market by plastic additives, automotive application, plastic type, and vehicle type based on region North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). A detailed study of various market leaders has been done and opportunity analysis has been provided in the report.

Various secondary sources, such as Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), American Chemistry Council (ACC), Plastics Environmental Council (PEC), British Plastics Federation (BPF), and others), corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements), and trade, business, and automotive associations. The secondary data has been collected and analyzed to arrive at the overall market size, which has been further validated through primary research. The primary sources experts from related industries, automotive plastic additives manufacturers, and additives experts have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information, as well as to assess future prospects and market estimations.

The top-down approach has been used to estimate and validate the size of the global automotive plastic additives market. To determine the market size, in terms of volume, of the automotive plastic additives market, vehicle production numbers have been multiplied by region-level penetration of each type of plastic considered in the study. The region-level market size, in terms of volume, of plastics is then multiplied with the region-level penetration of each type of plastic additives. This results in the region-level market size, in terms of value. The summation of the region-level market gives the global automotive plastic additives market.

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

The automotive plastic additives market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.52% during the forecast period, to reach USD 8.58 Billion by 2022. Rising demand for lightweight vehicles across the ecosystem have fueled the growth of the automotive plastic additives market globally. The growing trend of EVs is also a major factor that has contributed to the growth of this market. The electrification of vehicles in emerging countries such as China and India is driving the market for automotive plastic additives. The use of plastics in electric vehicles is more as compared to passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCV), and heavy commercial vehicles (HCV). The electrification of vehicles is increasing due to the lightweight of plastics and to cope with the stringent emission regulations. The increased use of plastic improves the energy management of a vehicle. Improvement in energy efficiency and fuel efficiency are the key drivers for the development of lightweight electric vehicles. However, there are some restraints for the market as the use of plastics could also impact health. The market is also challenging due to the stringent CAFE emission regulations.

The interior application segment is estimated to have the highest growth potential, and will further boost the demand for the automotive plastic additives market. This growth can be attributed to the demand for automotive plastic additives in interior application due to the high use of plastics. OEMs are strategizing to focus on consumer demands such as aesthetics, safety, comfort, vibrant colors, quality, and durability.

The automotive plastic additives for polypropylene is estimated to lead the automotive plastic additives market, by plastic type, during the forecast period. The high demand for the polypropylene additives market can be attributed to the wide use of polypropylene plastics than other plastics such as polyurethane, poly-vinyl chloride, and others.

Passenger cars are estimated to lead the automotive plastic additives market, by vehicle type. This is because the market is shifting toward luxury passenger cars with enhanced aesthetics, comfort, safety, and durability.

The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for automotive plastic additives during the forecast period, with China being the largest market for automotive plastic additives in the region. Furthermore, the electrification of vehicles is also driving the automotive plastic additives market in this region.

Automotive Additives Market

The key factors restraining the growth of the automotive plastic additives market include the impact on health and the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) emission regulations. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are emitted during the processing of plastics. High VOCs are harmful for health. In 2015, the CAFE standards were 39 miles per gallon (mpg) for cars and 23.5 mpg for trucks. For the year 2020, the CAFE standards rise to 49 mpg for cars and 25 mpg for trucks. Automakers must find ways to meet them. The automotive plastic additives market is dominated by many international as well as domestic players such as BASF SE (Germany), ExxonMobil Corporation (U.S.), Covestro AG (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Sabic (Saudi Arabia), and Akzo Nobel N.V. (Netherlands) among others.
