Vehicle Plastics – Global Market Outlook (2017-2023)” report
has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
Factors influencing the market growth are light-weight plastic
applications, BEV as the contributor, environmental concerns regarding
the requirement for electric vehicles and demand due to performance
competency as compared to metal.
Recycling of plastic materials, limited number of powertrain components
in EV compared to conventional vehicles and high prices of composites
are hindering the market growth.
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) requires maximum amount of plastic
materials in order to make the vehicle light-weighted. Small
manufacturers specialized in electric cars such as REVA, Duracar and
Lumeneo generally opt for tubular chassis with plastic bodies, which are
much lighter than steel bodies.
Polypropylene (PP) is widely used in electric vehicles. Honeycomb PP
have a good flexibility and easy to form. This is also used to build
floor component of electric vehicle. For example, Delphi and Ford have
used Biaxially-Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) film capacitors in inverter
