Automotive Exterior Materials Market 2017 Industry Trend, Sales and Forecast

The global automotive exterior materials market is expected to reach USD 19.21 billion in 2025, according to a new report. Steel which was predominantly the material of choice for various exterior components is expected to witness rising competition from plastics and carbon composite materials.

High prices of these composites have limited use of these materials to certain components. Sustainability is expected to emerge as key megatrend which is likely to shape the future of materials used for manufacturing car exteriors and will pose greater challenges for automobile designers.

Increasing environmental concerns and stringent norms have forced automotive manufacturers to control automotive pollution. One of the most important factors affecting fuel efficiency and vehicular pollution is the curb weight. Reduction in curb weight drastically increases fuel efficiency and reduces vehicular pollution.

Application of carbon fiber has been limited to high performance cars because of high carbon fiber cost. However, extensive R&D work is being undertaken by several manufacturers to develop low-cost carbon fiber grade with similar mechanical properties as that of high-cost variants.

This is expected to spur carbon fiber demand in the automotive industry over the forecast period. The market is characterized by the presence of major companies with a minimal difference in their shares, making each of them capable of gaining market leader position. The degree of competition is expected to remain high over the next five years.
