According to our global automotive composite market study on the basis of extensive primary and secondary research, one major trend in the market is the rapid adoption of carbon fiber composites in automotive industry. The automotive industry has gently expanded its used of carbon fiber composites and continued growth at a compound annual growth rate of 18.4% or higher is expected in the next several years. However, high cost of carbon fiber limits its use in some high end automobile variants only. On the other hand, small and medium ranged cars have been the focus for carbon fiber application for both price and production- scale reasons.

According to the report, major driver in global automotive composite market is growing environmental concerns and stringent emission norms. Automobile manufacturers are providing innovative composite parts in their vehicles in order to increase the fuel efficiency by reducing its overall weight. Moreover, the development of low-cost manufacturing methods for automotive composites is receiving a lot of attention, which is the major that can boost the growth of the automotive composite market.

Further, the report states that one challenge in global automotive composite market is high cost related to production of innovative composite materials such as carbon fiber composites. Material costs of carbon fiber composites are at least 20 times as much as steel and aluminum, and the automotive industry is unlikely to use them at mass scale until the price of carbon fiber drops significantly.

Geographically, Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest market share with 35% revenue share in global automotive composite market. Asia Pacific is closely followed by the Europe, which occupied about 28% of the market share owing to presence of big automotive industry players and huge automobile production in the region. The major countries of Latin America such as Brazil and Mexico showcase huge opportunity for automotive composite industry as the automobile manufacturing and sales are growing rapidly in these countries.
