Automotive plastic additives market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.

Plastic additives are required for the manufacturing of automobile interior, exterior, electronics, and under the hood components, due to the surging need for light-weight materials and flexible design. Thus, automobile manufacturers are extensively replacing plastic additives with metal and aluminum counterparts, which in turn is resulting into the escalating demand of plastic additives in automobiles. Plastic components make the vehicle lightweight and make it highly fuel efficient without hampering the power delivery. The increasing need of highly fuel efficient vehicles along with innovative design of vehicles is the major factor that is driving the growth of the automotive plastic additives market. The increasing production of vehicles and the need for reducing the production cost of vehicles in the developing countries such as China and India are also fueling the growth of the market. According to the data cited by OICA, China manufactured around 24.8 million passenger vehicles and approximately 4.2 million commercial vehicles, in 2017. In addition, according to the report published by Semantic Scholar, on an average, a vehicle uses around 150 kg of plastic composites and plastics, which accounts for approximately 15% of a vehicles overall body weight. Such high production statistics of vehicles and increasing incorporation of plastic components such as bumpers, doors, windows, headlight, side view mirror housing, trunk lids, grilles and wheel covers are contributing towards the growth of the market. However, the stringent regulations implemented by government of several nations on the use of plastics and the effect of plastic on health is hampering the growth of the automotive plastic additives market. The market players are anticipated to witness lucrative opportunities during the upcoming years due to the advent of new 3D printing technology. Leading market players are implementing strategies such as mergers & acquisition and collaboration to gain a competitive edge over the other players. For instance, in July 2018, BASF GmbH, acquired Advanc3D Materials GmbH and Setup Performance SAS with an aim to seek the advantages of their 3D printing technology.
