Report Overview

The global automotive wrap films market size was valued at USD 3.5 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to progress at a CAGR of 22.5% from 2020 to 2027. Growing sign and graphics industry, low cost, and increasing demand for mobile advertising are expected to fuel market growth.

U.S. automotive wrap films market size

In addition, modernization of consumer lifestyle, combined with rising demand for personalization of cars, is anticipated to have a positive impact on demand for automotive wrap films. This can be attributed to factors such as improving the standard of living and rising disposable income, especially in emerging economies such as China and India. Growing demand for customization on light duty vehicles like cars and two-wheelers is expected to drive the automotive wrap films market.

The growing acceptance of solid colored automotive wrap films such as matte black, blue, matte orange, pink, and green is anticipated to increase demand among consumers in the U.S. Furthermore, textured finish such as carbon fiber, wood grain, leather, and brushed metal is being rapidly adopted in Europe and North America.

Automotive wrap films are being increasingly used in various applications including heavy duty, light duty, and medium-duty vehicles. These films are a cost-effective and cost-efficient method for customization of any vehicle as they protect the original paint of the car and retain its resale value. The growing need for long-term protection of vehicle paint is therefore expected to fuel the demand for automotive wrap films over the forecast period.

However, the technical complexity associated with the installation of these films is expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. The installation of wrap films requires specific environmental conditions in order to make sure that the wrap is placed perfectly. If a wrap is installed outdoors, pieces of dirt could stick to the vehicle surface and form a layer between the vehicle surface and the film. Thus, it is necessary to install the wrap film in a clean and dirt-free indoor facility. Temperature is also a vital factor in the proper installation of automotive wraps. If the temperature is too high, the wrap might over stretch, while at low temperatures the film shrinks.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the automotive wrap films market is segmented into heavy duty vehicles, medium duty vehicles, and light duty vehicles. In 2019, light duty vehicles held the largest share in the market and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Growing demand for colorful graphics for SUVs, personal cars, and vans, coupled with rising opportunities for drivers to earn money through advertisements, is anticipated to propel the demand for wrap films in light duty vehicles over the forecast period.

Global automotive wrap films market share

The heavy duty vehicles segment held a significant share in 2019 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR over the forecast period. Automotive films are primarily used for advertising and brand marketing purposes in heavy duty vehicles. Increasing awareness regarding the importance of branding and marketing and growing number of impressions per day have led to high demand for wrap films for heavy duty vehicles over the past few years.

Early modernization of North America, coupled with a high adoption rate of new technologies in the region, has led to high demand for personalization of cars, ultimately leading to the growth of the market. Furthermore, rising safety awareness and growing emphasis by regulatory bodies to implement fire protection systems in buildings in the region is anticipated to augment market growth over the forecast period.

The growing interest of consumers in automotive wrap films for color change and paint protection is likely to propel demand over the forecast period. Increasing demand for passenger cars, coupled with changing consumer lifestyles, is likely to bolster demand across the region. Low cost and maintenance of vehicles and resale value are expected to propel growth during the forecast period.
