“India Automotive Plastics Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2017” analyses the key drivers as well. As the prices of fuel in India are increasing on regular basis, customers are inclining towards fuel efficient cars, thus in order to sustain in the competitive Indian automotive market, automotive manufacturers have also adopted mass reduction strategy to increase fuel efficiency. For the reduction of vehicle’s weight, automotive companies are using plastics and polymer materials over traditional steel for vehicle’s body.
The use of plastics in automotive also helps in reducing carbon emissions because of aerodynamic shaping and parts integration. Approximately 60% of engine’s efficiency is used to overcome resistance caused by air. As a result, improved aerodynamics translates into substantial improvements in fuel efficiency and carbon emissions.
At a time when light weight passenger cars are the trend of global as well as Indian automotive market, plastics have a significant role to play. The automotive plastics market in India has grown at stupendous growth rate. The report reveals that the during last half a decade, India has also emerged as export hub for automotive plastics to European and West Asian countries.
Indian automotive sales are growing at around 15% and are further anticipated to report similar trend during the next five years. “More cars put a higher burden on the environment, making it necessary to tighten emission regulations and diminish CO2 releases. Rising oil prices and increasing environmental concerns are also the prominent factors to support the growth of automotive plastics market in India,” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director, TechSci Research.
