Automotive plastics are widely used in manufacturing of seat systems, lighting systems, bumpers, automotive carpets, upholstery etc. Automotive plastics have special properties such as more durability, easy moldability, increased thermal stability, scratch resistance, strong resistance to abrasions, impact strength, etc. which makes it an ideal material for manufacturing automobile components. Automotive plastic has a widespread application in BRIC countries Brazil, Russia, India and China. The global automotive plastics market is expected to grow with a CAGR of about 15% during the forecast period of 2016-2023. Increasing demand for passenger vehicles and lightweight materials are the factors responsible for the growth of the global automotive plastics market during the forecast period. Usage of plastic components in vehicles leads to minimum corrosion, easy recyclability of the component along with the substantial design liberty and elasticity in integrating component. Also, usage of plastic offers essential flexibility in terms of vehicle design and even have scope for differentiation as compared to steel or any other material. The average car interior is now made of about 50% plastic. More than 1,000 different car parts are made of plastics. These plastics can be integrated and molded together to replace the need for multiple parts in automobiles. These advantages will surge the growth of the global automotive plastic market during the forecast period.
Increasing government regulations to control vehicle emission is the factor boosting the growth of the global automotive plastic market during the forecast period. In the U.S. vehicle emission standards are managed by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Under federal law, the state of California is allowed to promote more stringent vehicle emission standards. California is attempting to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles. Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) in North America have compelled automobile OEMs to seek alternative methods of vehicular weight reduction in order to improve overall efficiency of the vehicle. The Clean Air Act (CAA) is the comprehensive federal law that regulates air emissions from mobile and stationary sources. The major goal of this act was to achieve national ambient air quality standards in each area of the U.S. in order to address the public health and welfare risks posed by certain vehicular air pollutants. National Environment Policy Act (NEPA) is a United States environmental law that promotes the enhancement of the environment. These government rules and regulations restricts the air pollutants therefore, regulates the usage of plastic enables components.
