Because of high safety, lightweight, anti-corrosion and easy forming and the country's policies on auto environmental friendliness and light-weight, plastic fuel tank now takes the lion's share, up to roughly 80% worldwide and 71% in China in 2016. The share will continue to rise, expected to reach 88% globally and 81% domestically in 2021.

The Chinese plastic fuel tank market presents a competitive landscape with YAAP as a leader and private and foreign-funded enterprises (Kautex, INERGY, TI, Jiangsu Suguang Automotive Parts and YACHIYO) co-existing. YAPP held a 40.2% market share in 2016 with a total capacity of 13.60 million sets/a (by the end of Jun 2016).

YAPP still makes an investment and expands capacity in order to improve competitiveness. It put Yantai-based fuel tank plant into production in Aug 2017 and would expand and retrofit Chongqing-based 300,000 sets/a passenger-car plastic fuel tank lines in Sept.

Besides, foreign companies are accelerating to expand production capacity in China. In June 2016, the 900,000 sets/a plastic fuel tank project of TI Automotive (Baoding) was put into production.

In March 2017, Kautex (Wuhan) put into production the fuel tank projects applying the world's cutting-edge NGFS technology, and in the meantime Kautex (Changchun) Plastics Technology Co., Ltd invested RMB300 million for capacity expansion through transformation, and till 2020 lifting its production scale from the current 430,000 sets/a to 750,000 sets/a.

As new energy vehicle becomes the development trend of the automobile industry in the future, the fuel tank manufacturers have to enhance their R&D of technologies, in the long run, conduct upgrades and renovation so as to be adaptive to the market and seize the initiative. For instance, Yachiyo is pacing up its layout in the development of fuel tanks for PHEV; Faurecia acquired the exclusive use of intellectual property rights about composite hydrogen tank of STELIA Aerospace Composites in May 2017 and is probably to realize the design, production, and commercialization of high-pressure hydrogen tank using fuel cell vehicle-used carbon fiber.
