U.S. Automotive Wrap Film Market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The U.S. emerged as the largest automotive wrap films market in North America in 2021. Automotive wraps are increasingly being used for application on taxis, vans, trucks, boats, RVs, trailers, and buses in the U.S. Factors such as the increasing number of automotive vehicle production and the rising popularity of camouflage wraps are expected to augment the demand in the forthcoming years.

According to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the number of motor vehicles produced in the U.S. was 10.8 million units in 2019, which decreased to 8.82 million units in 2020. As per OICA, light-vehicle sales in the U.S. are expected to reach about 15.5 million units in 2022, rising by 2.7% compared to the previous year. The lifting of the lockdown and resumption of operations is expected to propel the demand for motor vehicle manufacturing as well as automotive wrap films. The presence of several key automotive wrap film manufacturers in the country is expected to augment market growth in the forthcoming years.

According to the Government of India, automotive color or texture wraps, which change the color of original vehicles, have to be registered with the Regional Transport Office of the country before their application to automobiles. The law is registered under section 52 of the Central Motor Vehicle Rules. Thus, in India, post-sales color wrapping of vehicles requires adherence to a number of laws that restrict the growth of the market in the country.

The COVID-19 outbreak across the globe severely affected the manufacturing industries, which, in turn, impacted the growth of the market in 2020. With the spread of COVID-19, work-from-home-rules, order cancellations, and shipping complications also surged throughout the plastics industry. The lifting of lockdowns and recommencing of operations while complying with the COVID-19 guidelines published by various governments across the globe is projected to fuel the demand for automotive wrap films in near future.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market has been segmented into passenger cars, buses, and trucks. In terms of revenue, passenger cars accounted for the largest revenue share of 53.81% in 2021. The segment is expected to maintain its dominant position owing to the reducing prices of car wraps and increasing customer preference for vehicle customization. The increased popularity of automotive wrap films and the availability of varied colors and textures have led to a rapid rise in demand for the personalization of cars. Spot graphics and lettering are also very popular among drivers for advertising as well as personalization.

Advertisements through buses provide significant opportunities in developing regions, namely, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and the Middle East & Africa with a large rural population as buses have high accessibility to rural areas.

Some of the main factors driving the growth of the trucks segment of the market for automotive wrap films are flourishing industrial sectors in emerging economies and increasing demand from the logistics and construction sectors owing to surged 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.
