Automotive Composites Overview

To put it simply, composites are an amalgam of two or more elements, natural or artificial constituents comprising various physical or chemical attributes that are more powerful as a pair than as individual participants. The component materials do not entirely merge or lose their unique identities; they integrate and impart their most valuable properties to enhance the final product or outcome. Composites are generally intended with a specific utility in anticipation, such as added efficiency, strength, or durability.

In the automotive industry, composite provides some of the crucial benefits in the automobile applications such as weight decline, cost reduction, and reusability. In addition to that, composites also incorporate the potential to deliver several weight and structural benefits over conventional steel and injection molded automotive components.

Numerous beneficial traits of automotive composites bringing about higher demand

As the automotive industry is beginning the shift from internal combustion to electric powertrains, composite materials are building a case for sustainability and light weighting. In the present times, composites carry the capacity to lay bare a whole world of new horizons and avenues for designers, manufacturers, and engineers. Since several companies have understood, utilizing composites enables an individual to customize the attributes of resins, fibers, and additives to design the precise material traits and performance attributes one desires. Owing to which, there is a rapid adoption of composites across the leading manufacturers of the market, which is ultimately estimated to drive the market growth over the following time frame.

Moreover, the swiftly growing electric vehicle market, these days, is another crucial factor that is estimated to offer significant breakthroughs to the automotive composite market growth in the following years.

Notably, polymer composites, comprising carbon fiber reinforced polymer (or briefly carbon fiber), providing lesser weight and much higher flexibility in respect of shape than metal, can help to enhance battery capacity as well as improve the overall vehicle efficiency.

Furthermore, the leading players of the market are also introducing new technologies in the market which are projected to promote their product portfolio and strengthen their worth across the global markets. For instance, Mitsubishi Chemical Holding Corporation recently reported the development of of a thermoplastic composite material (FRTP) which offers flame retardancy, high production performance, and recyclability since couple of primary facets of the EV battery systems are the need of greater fire resistance for rider’s safety and using lightweight materials to further preserve energy. Attributing to which, the global automotive composites market is expected to rise substantially in the forthcoming years.

Regional Market Outlook

In terms of geography, the automotive composites market can be divided into six regions – North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Europe is holding the biggest share of the automotive composite market and positively dominating the market due to the presence of leading established automotive manufacturers in the region. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is closely following Europe and is projected to grow substantially in the near future since the region is witnessing rapid growth of the EV market these days.
