DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Electric Vehicle (Car) Polymers Market by Type (Engineering Plastics (ABS, PA, PC, PPS, Fluoropolymer), Elastomers (Synthetic Rubber, Natural Rubber, Fluoroelastomer)), Component (Powertrain, Exterior, Interior), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Electric Vehicle (Car) Polymers Market Size was Estimated to be USD 4.1 Billion in 2018 and is Projected to Reach USD 52.5 Billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 67%.
The increasing use of polymers in various applications of an electric car to drive the market.
The market is driven by the growing need for lightweight the electric car to increase its range. However, the high price of electric vehicle polymers can act as a restraint for the market.
The engineering plastics type segment is projected to register a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
The engineering plastics segment is projected to witness higher growth rate than elastomers during the forecast period. Owing to their enhanced properties and advantages they are used in electric cars as substitutes for metals to fulfill the purpose of lightweight of the cars. The growing production of electric cars and the need for lightweighting of components of electric cars around the globe will drive the market of engineering plastic during the forecast period.
The market in the interior segment to account for the largest share during the forecast period.
The interior segment of components allows easy replacement of metals with polymers as these components have lower accidental risk and safety issues. Hence, most of the electric car manufacturers use polymers in place of metals in this segment to reduce the overall weight of the electric cars. Polymer has proven to be the ideal material for the interior components of a car, as it is durable and aesthetically pleasing. In addition, it reduces noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels of an electric car. Both the types of polymers, engineering plastics and elastomers are preferred for this segment of components.
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period.
APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market of electric vehicle polymers during the forecast period due to the growing production of electric cars in China, Japan, and South Korea. Canada is projected to be the fastest-growing country in the North American electric vehicle polymers market followed by Mexico and the US. Europe is the second-fastest growing electric vehicle polymers market. Increasing government regulation and consumer-friendly incentive schemes are expected to provide growth opportunities in this region.
The leading players in the electric vehicle polymers market are BASF (Germany), DowDuPont (US), Covestro (Germany), Celanese (US), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Solvay (Belgium), LANXESS (Germany), LG Chem (South Korea), Asahi Kasei (Japan), and Evonik Industries (Germany).
