Trends, opportunities and forecast in this market to 2022 by application type (interior, exterior, power train system/engine components, chassis system, under the body systems, electrical and electronics and others), resin type (PA,PP, PBT and others), intermediate material (LFT, SFT, CFT,GMT and others), by country (US, Canada, Mexico, Germany ,UK, France, Italy, Spain ,China ,India ,Brazil), and regional (North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW)
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of thermoplastic resin in the global automotive composites market looks good with opportunities in various applications such as powertrain system, electrical and electronics, chassis system, interior, exterior, under body system, and others. Thermoplastic resin in the global automotive composites market is expected to reach an estimated $4.7 billion by 2022 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2017 to 2022.
The major growth drivers for this market are increasing automotive production and growing demand for lightweight and durable materials due to stringent government regulations to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The other major drivers of thermoplastic resin for automotive are higher impact strength, better surface finish to the composite materials, and higher production rates than thermoset resin.

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 PA composite demand in automotive.
Europe is expected to remain the largest market due to growing demand for lightweight and environmentally sustainable composite materials from the automotive industry. Government regulations, such as CAFÉ Standards in the US and carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate light-weight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for thermoplastic resin in the automotive industry.
For business expansion, Lucintel’s report suggests innovation and new product development to achieve higher thermal and hydrolysis resistance with improved mechanical properties for thermoplastic resin. The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and development of low-cost solutions for customers.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include increasing inter-material competition and increasing focus on continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites. Celanese’s Advanced Engineered Materials (Ticona), SABIC, Tencate, Cytec, BASF, DSM, Dupont and Quadrant are among the major suppliers of thermoplastic resin in the global automotive composites market.
