Market overview of automotive interiors material market

Automotive interior materials enhance the ambience of a vehicle and are designed to offer maximum comfort and riding pleasure to the end user of an automobile. These materials minimize fatigue and engine vibrations, and some of them are also good cabin insulators. Technavio’s study predicts the market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% through 2019.

Consumer awareness regarding eco-friendliness and strict fuel-economy regulations by countries are causing manufacturers to seek sustainable and low weight materials for usage in automobiles, thereby driving innovation. For instance, a 10 percent reduction in the weight of a vehicle results in a 6-7 percent increase in fuel economy. European nations and the US are leading the research activities to develop natural, lightweight and non-pollutant sources for the manufacture of automotive interior materials. This trend is expected to contribute significantly towards the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Segmentation of automotive interiors material market by material

  •     Plastics 
  •     Fabrics
  •     Leather
  •     Glass
  •     Steel
  •     Others (magnesium, carbon composites, and aluminium) 

Since plastics are being used in most of the body works and fabrics are the base for all the seats and door linings, they are predicted to witness a steady increase during the forecast period. 
Leather is the third most dominant sector of this market and is expected to see a revenue growth of nearly $12 billion by 2019. While leather lends an aesthetic value to the interior of an automobile, it is also resistant to stains and abrasions. Similarly, the growing utility of leather in airbags is another key driver that contributes to the growth of this segment.

Market segmentation by geography

On the basis of geography, the global automotive interiors material market can be classified as follows: -

  •     APAC
  •     Americas
  •     EMEA 
  •     RoW 

APAC is the dominant market in this segment and is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 6%, with India emerging as a major player. Apart from the growing automotive industry, lower transportation and labor costs, and availability of raw materials are the key growth factors for the automotive interior materials market in this region.

Europe witnessed a decline in vehicle sales during the Euro-zone crisis which highly impacted the demand for automotive interior materials in the region. However, with the rise in the economy in this region, the automobile interiors material market is expected to see growth during the forecast period. Germany and France are predicted to be the major revenue generators due to the presence of a large number of automotive manufacturers within these countries. 

Growth factors of the automotive interiors material market

The growth of the global automotive industry has fueled the demand for the automotive interiors market. With automakers shifting production to new and developing markets, the demand for automotive interiors is predicted to surge mainly in the BRIC countries. 
Rising incomes and price discounts offered by companies on new cars in the emerging markets like APAC are some of the primary causes adding to the volumetric growth of sales of automotive interior components. China and India are emerging as the key countries in this region, with the demand arising from tier 2 and tier 3 cities especially for sub-compact to mid-sized cars. Russia is witnessing an increase in luxury car sales and predicted to become the largest market in Europe.
