Key Takeaways of Electric Vehicle Plastics Market

  • Hybrid EVs account for more than 60% of electric vehicle plastic sales.
  • Vehicle interior applications account for 46% of overall use.
  • Battery EV segment has been projected to generate remunerative opportunities for market players, with an exponential 13% CAGR through 2030.
  • East Asia maintains the lead, with more than half of the overall market value.
  • The south Asia electric vehicle plastic market is set to rise at a healthy 6% during the projection period.

“The transition towards the production of automobiles that emit lesser greenhouse gas emissions, and its variants are being manufactured by almost key OEMs owing to rapidly rising sales of electric vehicles that directly affect the rise of the electric vehicle plastics market. The recent decrease in the prices of raw materials used in the manufacture of electric vehicles will also contribute to positive prospects in the market,” says the report.

COVID-19 Impact on Electric Vehicles Plastic Market

The rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic has undermined the global economy and the electric vehicle markets. Even by conservative estimates, the impact of Covid-19 on electric vehicle components would largely arise from supply chains from East Asian nations such as China and Japan. The problems are further compounded by a sudden drop in demand as businesses and governments move resources from long-term infrastructure goals to short term measures for economic stimulus.

Policy makers from around the world are also likely to divert their attention away from clean energy towards more urgent concerns. The pandemic has highlighted the requirement for stronger localized production and diversified supply chains. The difficult market conditions will severely test government environmental policies. On the other hand, renewable technologies have become cheaper, and optimal policies will help to mitigate losses during these challenging times, influencing recovery of demand for electric vehicle plastics during the forecast period.

Electric Vehicle Plastics Market – Key Participant Insights

Plastics have inspired electric automakers to rethink materials used for producing vehicles, and the manufacturing process overall. Novel processes such as 3D printed auto components, help in reducing waste in comparison to conventional processes, in addition to providing OEMs greater flexibility in developing custom designs for EVs.

In addition to aesthetics, advanced plastics also aid in vehicle performance by reducing weight and optimizing aerodynamics for superior handling, range, and speed. Improving fuel consumption rates, and remaining in compliance with emission laws will remain key influencers among major electric vehicle manufacturers for the long term, supporting the landscape of the electric vehicle plastics market.

Key players in the electric vehicle plastics market that have been encompassed in this FMI report include but are not limited to Plastic Omnium, DuPont, BASF SE, Dow Chemical Company, BSM Group, Evonik Industries AG, and INEOS Capital Ltd.
