Market Overview and Trends

• Since past few years, original equipment manufacturers have shifted to plastics to cut vehicle weight which also helps in reducing cost and improving safety, performance, and fuel efficiency. 
• Car makers are mainly working to meet sustainability goals and use recovered materials. This has enabled them to develop car parts using recycled plastics. 
• Increasing numbers of automobile manufacturers are using recycled plastics to make things like seat belts, airbags, seat cushions and radiator shrouds. 
• According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the seat belts made from durable strands of polyester fiber helped save nearly 15,000 lives in 2016. 
• NHTSA also states that airbags made from high-strength nylon fabric, can reduce the risk of dying by 30%, in a car crash. 
• Lightweight plastic based design techniques benefit performance of the vehicle and energy savings. Based on this, in modern innovative automobiles plastic makes up to 50% of the vehicle volume but bear only 10% of its weight. 
• These properties enhance the adoption of plastic in automotive industry and increasing applications of plastic open new avenues in the automotive plastics industry.
