"Supporting government policies and taxation schemes are anticipated to fuel the industry demand for electric vehicles"

The electric vehicle plastics market is estimated to rise at a compound annual growth rate of ~27.8 percent, to attain a market size of ~$1.5B by 2021. Different countries are trying to shift towards greener transportation solutions. Favorable taxation schemes, direct monetary incentives, and indirect subsidies are driving the sales of electric vehicles. For example, in France (FR) there is a registration tax is for ICE passenger cars, electric vehicles are exempted from such tax. On top of, subsidies have been provided for achieving set emission targets; for example, vehicles emitting less than 20 g/km get a bonus of about USD 9400, and vehicles emitting between 21 g/km-50 g/km would get a bonus of about USD 6700. Such factors are driving the electric vehicle plastics market. The factors restraining market increase are lack of charging infrastructure for battery electric passenger cars and the high cost of batteries, which increases the global cost of electric passenger cars.

"Battery Electric Vehicle is the quickest increasing vehicle type in the electric vehicle plastics market"

BEVs are anticipated to dominate the electric vehicle plastics market. Lightweighting plays a significant role in improving fuel efficiency and growing the range of the BEV. The amount of plastic used in BEVs is more compared to HEVs, in order to make the vehicle lightweight. According to the European Commission, for an electric vehicle with a range of 200 km and battery capacity of 200 Wh/kg-300 Wh/kg, the permissible weight saving cost is around USD 10/kg. To accomplish the mentioned weight saving cost, 40.0 percent of lightweighting is required. Therefore, given the need to accomplish better fuel efficiency and CO2 emission targets, BEVs will be the biggest contributor to the plastics market.

"Polyurethanes constitute the most important material segment of the electric vehicle plastics market"

Polyurethanes are widely used in the interior applications of passenger cars, and contribute around 15%-20% of total plastics used in a passenger car. According to MarketsandMarkets review, Polypropylene content in passenger cars would growth from 0.041 tons in 2016 to 0.054 tons by 2021. PP is used in automotive parts including bumpers, seats, armrests, headrest, and the car body. Properties including improved strength, flexibility, and lightness make the material suitable for automotive applications.

"Oceania/Asia: Fastest increasing electric vehicle plastics market"

Oceania/Asia is forecasted to dominate the electric vehicle plastics market, and is expected to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the outlook period. China (CN) and Japan (JP) are the biggest contributors in the overall sales and production of electric vehicles. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, electric vehicle sales in China (CN) increased from 74,763 units in 2014 to 247,482 units in 2015, and the government is aiming to reach 5 million electric vehicles on the road by 2020. In order to cater to the growing demand for electric vehicles, the government is launching taxation schemes and providing subsidies, developing charging infrastructure, and undertaking other initiatives. Thus the growing sales of electric vehicles will likely drive the industry for plastics used in passenger cars.
