Automotive Plastics Market: BRIC Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015 - 2020

Automotive Plastics Market: BRIC Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015 - 2020

This Future Market Insights Report examines the ‘Automotive Plastics’ market for the period 2015–2020. The primary objective of the report is to offer insights about the market and potential market opportunities in the BRIC automotive plastics market. The usage of plastic components in automobiles is increasing at considerable pace across the globe.

Automotive plastics are used to manufacture various components such as lighting system, seating system, auto carpet and bumper. Versatile properties of plastics such as easy moldability, scratch resistance, thermal stability, impact strength and resistance to abrasion give them an edge over other materials which make them suitable for use in manufacturing of automobile components. Apart from this, reduction in manufacturing cost, durability and toughness of plastics have encouraged manufacturers to increase usage of plastics in various components such as doors, bumpers, fenders and others. All these components are used in three major applications, namely, exterior, interior and under bonnet.

To understand and assess opportunities in this market, the report is categorically split under five sections, namely, market analysis by channel, vehicle type, application, product type and region.

To calculate market size, the report considers average plastics components per vehicle across BRIC countries. Furthermore, data points such as regional split and market split by application, material type and qualitative inputs from primary respondents have been incorporated to arrive at apt market estimates. The forecast presented here assesses the total revenue as well as volume of plastics components. When developing the forecast of the market, the starting point is sizing the current market, which forms the basis for the forecast of how the market is anticipated to take shape in the near future. Given the characteristics of the market, we triangulated the outcome based on different analysis based on supply side, demand side and dynamics of BRIC automobile (parent) market. However, quantifying the market across aforementioned segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalizing them after the forecast has been completed.

In addition, it is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating global economy, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse the market on the basis of key parameters such as year-on-year (Y-o-Y) growth to understand the predictability of the market and to identify the right opportunities across the automotive plastics market.

As previously highlighted, the market for automotive plastics is split into various sub-categories based on region, material type and application. All these sub-segments/categories have been analysed in terms of basis point share (BPS) to understand individual segments relative contribution to growth. This detailed level of information is important for identification of various key trends in the BRIC automotive plastics market.

Also, another key feature of this report is the analysis of automotive plastics market by region, material type, channel type, vehicle type and application and its revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar. This is traditionally overlooked while forecasting the market. However, absolute $ opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources from a sales perspective in the BRIC automotive plastics market.

Furthermore, to understand key growth segments in terms of growth & performance of automotive plastics, Future Market Insights developed market attractiveness index. The resulting index should help providers identify real market opportunities.

In the final section of the report, BRIC automotive plastics market landscape is included to provide report audiences with a dashboard view, based on categories of providers across the value chain, presence in automotive plastics product portfolio and key differentiators.
