Automotive Plastics Asia-Pacific Market

Automotive Plastics: Asia-Pacific Markets


Summary

Plastics, especially high-performance plastics, have excellent temperature stability and metal replacement potential, and are thus being used widely in the automotive and aviation industries. Some high-performance plastics are being widely used as they have outstanding flame-retardant features and stability in harsh situations. These features allow them to be used for parts which are exposed to high temperatures in the automotive, aviation, rail and marine industries.

Engineers have been replacing metals and other traditional materials with plastics to cope with the changing market conditions in the automotive industry to reduce weight of vehicles, enhance fuel efficiency, cut down fuel emissions, and reduce material-related failures, downtime, and maintenance in the automotive industry, among other reasons. Thus, the booming automotive industry is likely to drive the automotive plastics market in Asia-Pacific in the coming years.

The average weight of plastic in a car is generally more than REDACTED% of the total vehicle weight and the figure is set to increase to more than REDACTED% in the coming years. The use of plastic materials in the automotive industry has already increased, and REDACTED% more plastics are currently used as compared to 2014. The weight of plastics in vehicles will continue to increase beyond REDACTED kg by 2020. Every REDACTED% decrease in vehicle weight results in a REDACTED% to REDACTED% decrease in the usage of fuel. Some other benefits of the usage plastics in vehicles include - 
- Minimum corrosion, allowing longer vehicle life.
- Substantial design freedom, allowing advanced creativity and innovation.
- Flexibility in integrating components.
- Safety, comfort and economy.
- Recyclability

Such advantages offered by the plastics enable them to also be used in interior applications, applications which involve high temperatures, and other corrosive fluid contact applications in the automotive, aviation, rail and marine segments. The use of plastics in the automotive industry is ever increasing with the demand on the industry to reduce weight and increase fuel efficiency.
