U.S. Automotive Wrap Films Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Consumers are increasingly adopting vehicle wraps to protect car paint and add a flashy look to their vehicles.

Changing consumer lifestyles are expected to play a major role in augmenting the demand for automotive wrap films in the country.

Application Insights

Automotive wrap films are primarily used for advertising and brand marketing purposes in heavy-duty vehicles. Increasing awareness and the number of impressions per day have led to high demand for wraps for these vehicles over the past years.

Large billboards are now being replaced by mobile billboards using heavy-duty vehicle wraps which not only deliver higher visibility but also provide a higher return on investment for the consumers. In addition, the availability of large wrapping spaces in heavy-duty vehicles allows wrapping of different types, including full wrap, partial wrap, king kong wrap, queen kong wrap, full ribbon, partial ribbon, and back cap.

Global Automotive Wrap Films Market share and size, 2022

Some of the main factors driving the growth of the truck segment of the market are flourishing industrial sectors in emerging economies and increasing demand from the logistics and construction sectors owing to a surge in construction activities taking place globally. These factors contribute to the usage of heavy-duty trucks for transportation purposes, thereby leading to the application of automotive wrap films on them for advertisements.

Easy application and removability of automotive wrap films allow application flexibility for different types of graphics on trucks. As the promotion of small business brands using billboards is expensive, several companies prefer automotive wrap films installed on trucks over billboards. However, they are required to adhere to laws that mandate every commercial vehicle to write the name of the company on each door.

Regional Insights

North America was the largest region across the market in 2022 in terms of market revenue. This market accounted for a market share of over 36% in 2022. The effectiveness of these campaigns is monitored through global positioning satellite tracking systems, which provide detailed information about the vehicle. This has ultimately led to the high utilization of automotive wrap films for mobile advertisements in the region.

Increasing demand for color wraps, including matte black and matte orange, in North America, is expected to drive the automotive wrap films market over the forecast period. Heavy vehicles such as buses and large vans used for tourism use wrap films for promotions. The need to protect the vehicle’s original paint for an extended time is further spurring the demand for these films.
