Global Carbon Thermoplastics in the Automotive Market

logoMarket Overview

A composite material comprised of carbon fiber and plastic is called automotive carbon thermoplastic. The carbon fiber is blended with one or two polymers to create a special product that will be employed in producing sturdy and lightweight vehicle parts. The external and interior components of the car are designed using these thermoplastic materials. The extra benefit of automotive carbon thermoplastic is its great resistance to deformation and both acid and alkaline corrosion. Over the past few years, there has been an increase in interest in its ability to meet energy conservation and CO2 reduction demands in the automotive industry. The aerospace and automotive industries regularly use carbon fiber reinforced polymer because it may be used to create lightweight products. Adding carbon thermoplastic will improve the material's deformation and crack development resistance. Utilizing carbon thermoplastics will help increase fuel efficiency and load capacity. Additionally, it helps to reduce vibration and noise in cars. The global desire for lightweight and fuel-efficient automobiles is a major factor driving the market for carbon thermoplastics in automotive, as this material is one of the most efficient ways to reduce vehicle weight, boost fuel efficiency, and lower emissions.

logoCovid-19 Impact:

Coronavirus has had a depressing effect on several production markets in Europe, North America, and the Asia Pacific. Because of the COVID-19 epidemic and the imposed lockdown in some countries, the automotive industrial has been one of the hardest damaged. Production activity was poor, and people did not look forward to acquiring vehicles at this time. The supply chain disruption resulted in raw material delays or non-arrival, disturbed money flows, and falling morale among manufacturing line workers, forcing them to operate at reduced or zero capabilities. As a result, demand for carbon thermoplastics in the automobile industry has decreased.

Global Carbon Thermoplastics in the Automotive Market

logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing demand for light- weighted and efficient automobiles drives the market growth

China, India, and Japan are among the nations with the largest markets for the automobile industry as the ongoing expansion of the vehicle manufacturing industry in these nations. Due to carbon fiber's ability to reduce vehicle weight, vibration, and noise, automobiles are made to be more efficient. Since they may replace metal in many industries, carbon thermoplastic materials are becoming more and more valuable. The goal is to create lighter, less fuel-consuming automobiles that produce less CO2. As a result, there will be an increased demand for carbon thermoplastic in automobiles.

logo Restraints

  • The high price of carbon fiber may hinder the market growth

Carbon fiber reinforced components are lightweight, load-bearing, strong, and structural components that are crucial for reducing the weight of automobiles. However, one of the main challenges for this market is the high price of carbon fiber compared to other fibers (glass, natural), as small auto parts industries will suffer from purchasing the high price of carbon fiber. Additionally, difficulties are presented by automakers' worries about establishing a method for recycling or trash disposal of carbon composite parts. This may hinder the carbon thermoplastics in the automotive market.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global carbon thermoplastics market in automotive is segregated based on resin type and application.

Based on resin type, the market is segmented into polyamide (PA), polypropylene (PP), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polyetherimide (PEI), and polyether ether ketone (PEEK), polycarbonate (PC). The polypropylene (PP) sector dominates the market in 2021. As a result, polypropylene is the most often used plastic in car manufacture. It is a thermoplastic polymer that can be readily molded into any shape. It is resistant to impact and has excellent chemical and heat resistance.

Based on application, the market is classified into the exterior, interior, chassis, powertrain & UTH. The powertrain & UTH category dominates the market in 2021. The small weight, excellent durability, design flexibility, and uniform surface of carbon thermoplastic composites make them ideal for use in the engine and drivetrain. As a result, there is a growing need for carbon thermoplastic composites in areas like the engine and drivetrain. During the projection period, this is anticipated to propel the powertrain & under the hood segment.

logoRecent Developments

  • February 2020: Covestro AG created a new composite technique to create thin, lightweight, high-strength, aesthetically pleasing parts for automobiles that cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions or extend the range of electric vehicles. The technique, MaezioTM, is based on Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic Polymers (CFRTP).
  • October 2019: The top-of-the-line certified circular polymers from the chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste, certified renewable polymers, and its new certified renewable feedstock-based polycarbonate were all on show at K 2019, together with SABIC's TRUCIRCLE initiative and solutions.
