By Type

Based on the type of plastic the market for automotive plastics is segmented into HDPE, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polycarbonate, Polyurethane, Polypropylene, ABS, Polyamide, PBT. Among the mentioned product types the polypropylene segment is the fastest growing in the market. The growth is mainly attributed to the low cost and outstanding mechanical support and moldability of polypropylene. 

By Application

Based on the application of the plastic the market is categorized into Interior, Exterior, Under Bonnet. Of the mentioned applications the interior segment is the largest and is expected to lead the market in the aforementioned forecast period. The growth is mainly attributed to the fact that plastics are majorly used in the interior of the vehicle such as dashboards, door panels, and others.

Automotive Plastics Market Geographical Analysis:

By geography, the market is segmented as Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, North America, and Middle-East & Africa. The Asia Pacific region holds the largest share of the Automotive Plastics Market in the year of 2018, in terms of value and volume. The regional advantages in this region, like the ease of company setup, cheap resources, and a large number of the skilled population are the major reasons for the fast emerging industries in this region, hence the region’s position in the market. Also, the fast-developing economies like India, Japan, and China are the main reason for the developing regional market. These reasons make this region the fastest growing regional market in the proposed forecast period.

North America is next in the lead of the Automotive Plastics Market by both value and volume, as of 2018. The situation of many key market players in this region with well-established infrastructure is the main reason for its market position. This region is only in the second position in the market in terms of market growth, following the Asia Pacific.

Europe is next in the lead of the market in the year 2018. The presence of a huge customer base in and around this region is helping in the growth of the Automotive Plastics Market in this region. This region is only the third fastest-growing region in the market in the projected forecast period.

On the other hand, the Middle East & Africa and Latin America regions, being in the slow-developing countries, have fewer opportunities for market growth. Hence, the market growth is at a slow pace in these regions.
