On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the power train system is expected to be the largest market and under body system is expected to show the highest growth during the forecast period from 2017 to 2021.

Within the ASEAN automotive composites market, short fiber thermoplastic (SFT), and long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) are the major materials utilized to manufacture automotive parts.

By fiber type, glass composites, carbon composites, and natural fiber composites are the major fiber segments. The glass fiber composites market is expected to remain the largest fiber segment, and the carbon fiber composites market is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period.

By resin type, polyamide (PA) composites are expected to remain the largest market by value and volume consumption. High resistance to abrasion, low friction characteristics, electrical resistance, heat resistance, and good chemical resistance are the properties which drive the PA composite demand in automotive.

By resin group, thermoplastics and thermoset composites are the two segments in which thermoplastic composite is the largest segment. The advantages of using thermoplastic composites are recyclability, ease of processing, and better capability of making parts with complex geometry.

Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Singapore and Lao PDR are the countries included in ASEAN automotive composites market. Among this, Thailand was the major market for the ASEAN automotive composites because of high volume of automotive production.  

Polynt, Hanwha, and Polyone are among the major suppliers of composites in the ASEAN automotive composites market.
