COVID-19 Impact on the Global Automotive Plastics Market for Passenger Cars

The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted the whole automotive supply chain on a global scale. The initial supply and manufacturing sector is not the only one that has been disrupted. The entire automotive industry has been affected, thereby experiencing an uncertain recovery timeline due to lockdown implementation in various parts of the world. The automotive industry is currently facing four major challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic — limited supply of vehicle parts, drop in new vehicle sales, shutdown of production facilities, and decline in working capital. In 2020, according to OICA, the global passenger car sales dropped by -15.9% from 63.7 million units in 2019 to 53.6 million units. As the automotive plastics market for passenger cars is dependent on passenger car sales, this market is expected to be significantly impacted due to this outbreak.

Automotive Plastics Market for passenger cars Dynamics

Driver: Adoption of lightweight materials due to stringent emission and fuel economy regulations

Several governments across the globe have introduced stringent emission and fuel economy regulations for vehicles. These regulations have compelled automotive OEMs to increase the use of lightweight materials such as plastics. Advanced plastics materials help increase the fuel economy of a vehicle while ensuring safety and performance. A 10% reduction in vehicle mass can improve fuel economy by 6 to 8%. The use of plastics reduces the consumption of fuel in a vehicle because less weight takes less energy at the time of acceleration. Carbon emission in passenger cars can be reduced by using greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction technologies, such as adjustment in valve timing, turbocharging, aerodynamic designing, and introduction of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell systems in automobiles. However, these technologies require modifications in engine design, powertrain systems, and power systems that involve high degree of complexities. Therefore, advanced plastic materials are being extensively used for the significant reduction of carbon emissions, which is comparatively reasonable than the above mentioned technologies.

Restraint: COVID-19 slowing down sales of passenger cars

The global automotive industry is facing a slowdown due to the lockdown in several countries amid the COVID- 19 outbreak. Operations of major automotive companies, including Nissan, Kia, BMW, Daimler, and Tesla, were affected by COVID-19. The pandemic and the consequent economic meltdown led to declining sales for the third year in China in 2020, the world’s biggest automobile market. This jeopardized multibillion-dollar expansion plans by EV makers. Further, due to COVID-19, passenger car sales in 2020 decline by 14% compared to 2019. The drop in global car sales in 2020 was significantly larger than the one observed during the global financial crisis of 2007-2009. South America and Europe were among the hardest-hit regions, with auto sales in these regions contracting by about one-fourth year-on-year. China was the largest automobile market based on sales with around 21 million units in 2019. However, monthly car sales in China were in free-fall in February 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country and fears over a looming recession. As a result of successful containment measures, the market started showing signs of recovery in April, providing a lifeline for major manufacturers.

Opportunity: Growing trend of vehicle electrification

The introduction of EVs has resulted in a technological revolution in the automotive industry. These vehicles have superior performance to their internal combustion counterparts. Factors such as increase in environmental awareness, government support and incentives, and investments by OEMs have paved the way for EVs. Leading automotive players such as Volkswagen, BMW, Tesla Motors, Ford, General Motors, and Toyota have ventured into the electric vehicle segment. EVs are more efficient, energy independent, and better than gas alternatives. Since EVs have low-power engines, they use lightweight materials that drive the engine’s pulling capacity. Therefore, the increasing demand for EVs provides an opportunity for the growth of the automotive plastics market.

Challenge: High cost of capital and infrastructure for re-engineering of plastics

One of the key challenges for the re-engineering of plastics is the relatively high cost of capital and infrastructure required. The obstacles include the lack of awareness among manufacturers for recycling these plastics and the lack of infrastructure. Moreover, from a component manufacturer's point of view, there is a knowledge gap about the recyclability of certain plastic types used in component designing. The recycling of plastics and composites from complex, durable products are limited due to technological and economic restraints. In addition, there is additional hindrance in the recycling of plastics such as lack of technology, infrastructure, and small market for recyclates. The recycling process of plastics requires state-of-the-art technology facilities. These facilities require heavy investments and plastic separation technologies such as magnetic separation, eddy current separators, float-sink tanks, and laser and infrared systems, which are used to differentiate and separate plastics based on color.

Therefore, lack of infrastructure, knowledge gap and the heterogeneous mixes of plastics make recycling challenging.

Low cost and extensive interior applications will drive demand for PP product type segment in the automotive plastics market for passenger cars

By product type, the PP segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, in terms of volume. Polypropylene (PP) is also known as polypropene. As a thermoplastic polymer, polypropylene can easily be formed into almost any shape. Polypropylene is extensively used in passenger cars for various applications, such as interior, exterior, and under bonnet components. Polypropylene, being a commodity plastic, is cheaper than other engineered plastics and, hence, preferred over other plastics by design engineers. The low-cost vehicle design requirement for engineers is usually met using polypropylene. These factors are responsible for the large share of PP in the automotive plastics market for passenger cars.

Demand for comfort features to drive the interior application segment in the automotive plastics market for passenger cars

By application, the interior segment accounted for the largest share of the automotive plastics market for passenger cars in 2020. Interior application leads the market as plastics are being increasingly used in these applications to provide impact resistance and dimensional stability. Use of plastics in interior applications provides high durability, color, and aesthetic appeal to automobiles. The interior segment includes components such as the interior lighting, interior door panels, inner door handles, window motor, door control module, door locks, interior trims, seats, seat belts, car upholstery, dashboard, infotainment systems, instrument cluster, steering wheel assembly and component, airbag, floor components and parts (carpet and other floor material), hood and trunk carpets, seals, frame, breaks and gears, cables, and connector & socket.

China is the largest consumer of automotive plastics in the Asia Pacific region

Asia Pacific (APAC) accounted for the largest share of the automotive plastics market for passenger cars in 2020. According to the World Bank, the two economic giants of APAC — China and Japan — are the world’s second-and third-largest economies, respectively, in 2021. The region is the hub for foreign investments and booming industrial sectors, mainly because of the low-cost labor, easy availability of raw materials, increase in adoption of modern technologies, innovations, and easy availability of inexpensive lands. China, Japan, India, and South Korea are the major countries in the region. China is the largest automotive plastics market for passenger cars in APAC, owing to the presence of major automobile companies. Growing middle-class population, industrialization, rising disposable income, and changing lifestyles are expected to drive the demand for passenger vehicles, providing various growth prospects to the automotive plastics market for passenger cars in China.
