Mannheim, Germany-In 1970, plastic parts accounted for only about 5% of a car’s total weight. Those of us who burned ourselves on metal dashboards and steering wheels won’t argue with that number. Today, it’s more like 15%, and the chance of the percentage climbing even higher is almost a given.

Based on talks here this week with numerous suppliers of materials, molds, and technology to the automotive industry, the pace of plastics’ incursion into automotive applications still dominated by other materials will increase. Driving the accelerated pace of change will be carmakers’ striving to reduce their vehicles’ carbon dioxide emissions, new technologies such as electronically-powered cars, and more, according to Wolfgang Hopke, president, performance polymers at plastics supplier BASF (Ludwigshafen, Germany), who spoke to a packed house of processors, Tier suppliers and OEMs at his company’s annual event here on the eve of the Plastics in Automotive Engineering conference organized
