Composite Materials Market by Material Type (PMC, MMC, & CMC), Application & their Sub-Components (Structural, Powertrain, Interior, Exterior, & Other Applications), Vehicle Type (PC, LCV, HCV, & Rolling Stock), & by Region - Global Forecast to 2020

“Composite Materials: Future of the Automotive Industry”
The composite materials market size is projected to grow at a promising CAGR of 12.94% during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020, to reach USD 11.26 billion by 2020. Major OEMs partnering with composite material manufacturers, government regulations and mandates regarding fuel efficiently, and rising demand for fuel efficient vehicles are some of the drivers fueling growth in sales of automotive composite materials globally.

“CFRP: the fastest growing composite material”
The fastest growing composite material in the automotive industry is carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). Carbon fiber is presently the most prominent lightweight material in the automotive industry, due to its high potential for weight reduction in certain applications. BMW (Germany) and Daimler AG (Germany) have already developed working relationships with material providers such as SGL Carbon Group (Germany) and Toray Industries Inc. (Japan) respectively, to jointly develop processes and techniques to bring carbon fiber vehicles to the market. The main applications where these composites are used include structural, powertrain, exterior, and interior.

“Emerging economies to dominate the composite materials market”
The automotive composite materials market has witnessed considerable growth in emerging economies such as China, India, and Mexico, owing to rising vehicle production, and increasingly stringent emission, safety and fuel economy norms. The automotive composite materials market is projected to be the largest in Asia-Oceania from 2015 to 2020. This can be attributed to rising demand for automobiles in this region. Improving emission regulations, rising awareness about eco-friendly systems, and benefits of better fuel efficiency are the key factors driving the growth of the automotive composite materials market in Asia-Oceania.
