Europe Automotive Composite Material Market Demand Status, Industry Share, Opportunities Forecast to 2025

Europe Automotive Composite Material was valued at US$ 1,013.3 Million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$ 1,757.4 Million by 2025 displaying a reasonable CAGR of 8.29% over the forecast period (2019-2025). Europe’s automotive industry holds 4% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In addition to this, the number of new vehicle registrations increased by 3.8% in 2017 as compared to 2016.

The increasing number of vehicles has contaminated Europe’s atmosphere with Green House Gases (GHG), owing to which European Commission laid a regulation that mandates a target value of 95g/km of CO2 emission for passenger cars and 147g/km for commercial vehicles to achieve by 2020. To comply with such regulations, automakers in Europe are using composite materials to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle which results in improved fuel efficiency.

Using composite materials in the place of steel or aluminium reduces vehicular weight considerably (35-50%). Besides reduction in weight, features such as excellent aerodynamic design, crashworthiness and toughness of the composite materials are also attracting the European automotive industry.

Further, the presence of some of the prominent material suppliers such as BASF, DowAksa, Gurit Holding AG, Mubea Carbo Tech GmbH, SGL Group and Solvay S.A. among others in Europe is also propelling the market growth. However, high cost of the materials, discrepancies in the manufacturing processes and high R&D investment in this industry are acting as the major challenges hampering the market growth.

“Polymer Matrix Composite is expected to dominate during the analyzed period.”

Europe Automotive Market Overview

The European automotive composites material market is segmented based on different materials such as Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC), Metal Matrix Composite (MMC), Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) and Hybrid Composite. 

Due to high flexibility, high insulation, lower density and lighter weight than other composite materials, PMCs held the maximum market share in 2018 and their dominance is expected to prevail during the forecast period. However, due to the low cost and high flexural and tensile strength of hybrid composites as compared to single fibre composites, the hybrid composites are anticipated to be the fastest-growing polymer type during the forecast period

“Thermoset held the largest market share in 2018 and are expected to dominate the market in 2025.”

The study further bifurcates the PMCs by matrix types, which include thermosets and thermoplastics. wherein thermoset held the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to dominate the market by 2025.

However, thermoplastic is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period as they are compact and wireless

“Amongst Manufacturing Process, Injection moulding is projected to hold the largest market share and will dominate the Europe automotive composite material market by 2025.”

Europe automotive composite market is further fragmented across different manufacturing processes. This includes hand lay-up, compression moulding, injection moulding, and resin transfer moulding (RTM). The injection moulding process and is anticipated to reach US$ 809.3 million by 2025. On the other hand, RTM will be the fastest-growing manufacturing process because of its growing adoption in the auto industry

“Amongst applications, the exterior segment is anticipated to dominate Europe automotive composite material market by 2025.”

Based on several application areas in automobiles, the European automotive composite materials market is segmented into the interior, exterior, chassis, powertrain & under the hood and structural. Among different application areas, the exterior segment dominated the market however a gradual increase in the adoption rate of composite materials for vehicle interiors is expected in the upcoming years

“Amongst vehicle type, passenger cars hold the major share in Europe automotive composite material market.”

Based on different vehicle types, the European automotive composite materials market is segmented into performance cars, passenger cars and others (commercial vehicles and others). Europe’s passenger car market is the biggest segment in the automotive industry of the region, because of the largest share in the auto industry and increasing penetration of composite materials in the passenger car segment
