September 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Automotive Composite Market Growth & Trends

The global automotive composite market size is expected to reach USD 37.10 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2020 to 2027. Favorable emission control regulations, coupled with the growing demand for lightweight materials from the automotive industry, are anticipated to positively impact market growth.

Adoption of electric powertrains, coupled with regional fuel economy standards, is expected to play a crucial role in the adoption of composites in the automotive industry. Over the past few years, emission control regulations, coupled with fuel economy standards, have been driving the use of lightweight materials, including composites in the automotive industry.

These stringent emission regulations and fuel economy standards are further expected to drive the demand for automotive composites over the coming years. Moreover, government and consumer incentives in Europe for efficient and lightweight vehicles are expected to play a crucial role in driving the regional demand for automotive composites.

The automotive industry is one of the major industries contributing to the global economy. However, a decrease in demand and investment, coupled with supply chain disruptions and factory closures owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, is expected to hinder the growth of the automotive industry, thereby impacting the demand for automotive composites in 2020.
