Emerging Markets for PP Resin in Automotive Carbon Thermoplastic Applications

The report "Automotive Carbon Thermoplastic Market by Resin Type (PA, PEEK, PPS, PC, PP), Application (Exterior, Interior, Chassis, Powertrain & UTH), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, Latin America, MEA) – Global Forecast to 2028", is estimated at USD 522 million in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 983 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2023 to 2028. Thermoplastic composites enable the automobile manufacturers to produce affordable structural components to substitute the conventional metal ones. Shorter cycle times for the manufacture of components are feasible with the use of thermoplastics. At the same time, the overall production costs can be reduced through automated volume production. Some of the critical production factors are: flexibility of design, low tooling costs, ease of injection molding, and suitability for welding. The potential of thermoplastic composites in this area is great. There are excellent possibilities for combining advanced materials with technologies that are already used in the plastics processing.

The PEEK segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022, in terms of value.

CF/PEEK composites efficiently offer significant weight reduction in the automotive components as compared to other conventional metals and alloys. By using CF/PEEK, manufacturers can easily produce wide range of complex shapes more quickly and easily as compared to other thermoplastic resins. The potential to consolidate and integrate multiple components ultimately results in the reduced part count of the automobiles. CF/PEEK composites are successfully replacing metals and other alternative products with various automotive components such as bearings, bushing, fastening systems, seal rings, washers, and many other high temperature tolerating parts.
