Market Research Future has published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Automotive Foam Market.
An Overview of the COVID-19 Impact on This Market:
Automotive foam has emerged as a new engineering material with multifunctional properties for a broad range of transportation applications. It is designed to increase structural strength as well as enhance vehicle safety, comfort, and acoustics. Automotive foam is used in the interior and exterior parts of vehicles. Polyurethane foams are significantly used for managing vehicle noise and vibration. It also helps to meet sustainability by increasing fuel efficiency and improving mobility.
Automotive Foam Market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.23% during the forecast period and cross USD 73.42 Billion by 2025.
Automobile manufacturers are emphasizing on reducing the weight of vehicles to increase fuel efficiency and curb CO2 emissions. Serval automotive foam manufacturers are developing innovative and high-quality automotive foam to enhance the efficiency of vehicles. For instance, polyurethane foam is commonly used in the automotive industry owing to its benefits. A car that weighs 1000 kg comprises approximate 100 kg of plastics of which around 15 kg is polyurethanes. Thus, the unique properties of automotive foam help the automobile manufacturers to increase the safety and enhance the performance.
The price of automotive foam varies depending upon its application and requirement. The foams are differentiated based on mechanical strength flexibility and stiffness. Flexible polyurethane foam is majorly used for cushioning automobile parts. The price of polyurethane foam ranges from USD 3.50 per sheet to USD 5.5 per sheet. Polyether automotive foam costs around USD 4.89/kg.
Polyurethane foam is a combination of lightweight and flexible materials with higher durability and strength. The flexible properties of polyurethane foam allow the manufactures to implement new designs. It is used in vehicle seats, cushions, door panels, dashboards, bumpers, and dashboards.
Polyolefin (PO) foam is a lightweight and flexible foam that offers thermal insulation and flame resistance. It finds a wide range of applications in automotive interior parts such as headliners, door trim, and trunk mats.
The other segment includes polyethylene and polyamide foams. These foams are used in various automobile parts.
Door panels act as an interface between door and vehicle occupants. It is projected to meet a variety of design specifications in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and safety. Doors have an inner panel that comprises of central locking system and electronic windows. These panels consist of automotive foam covered with either textiles or plastics. Thus, door panels are among the toughest sets of requirements in car interior components, which are designed to channel loads onto the car body.
Polyurethane foams are majorly used in automotive seat cushions. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of the seat.
Positive economic outlook and rise in disposable incomes have increased the sale of cars in Asia-Pacific. Developing countries are witnessing a gradual shift from public mode of transportation to comfortable & convenient transportation. Also, the upper-middle-class population is switching from personal convenient transportation mode to luxurious cars.
The demand for heavy commercial vehicles is growing rapidly owing to the development of road and infrastructure led by rapid industrialization. The increasing number of manufacturing industries across the globe has resulted in the expansion of distribution and logistics channels for goods & services, which is expected to augment the growth of the global automotive foam market.
