The market is predominantly driven by improving the economic conditions, worldwide that are fostering the automotive sales, increasing consumers’ purchasing power. Moreover, the increasing demand from consumers for luxury cars with improved exterior designs that can give the maximum feeling of comfort, as well as, fuel efficiency.

Additional properties of Automotive Plastics, such as high resistance to heat & weathering and versatility in applications & designing make them the trendiest forms of materials used in automobile manufacturing.

Furthermore, stringent government regulations pertaining to the vehicular emissions are boosting the size of the market by encouraging the automotive companies to switch to these lightweight components from metals like steel and aluminum.

Conversely, the high cost of Automotive Plastics impedes the growth of the market, restricting its uses to low-volume applications. Besides, volatility in the prices and demand-supply gap in the raw materials necessary for the production is obstructing the growth of the Automotive Plastics Market, majorly.

However, the augmenting demand lightweight components that control the emission and fuel consumption would support the growth of the market through the review period. Also, technological advancements expected to be transpired in the future would reduce the selling cost of these plastics, presenting cost-competitive technologies for manufacturing.
