Automotive Interior Materials Market by Type (Plastics, Metals, Fabrics, Leather, Composites, and Others), Vehicle (Passenger, LCV, and HCV) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

The global automotive interior materials market was valued at $77,553 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $124,469 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2016 to 2022. Automotive interior materials are manufactured from a varied array of resources, such as plastics, metals, and fabrics.

Automobiles in the twenty-first century feature radically improved safety and sustainability attributes. Global emphasis is being placed on greenhouse gas reduction and fuel efficiency improvement in the transportation sector. To achieve lightweight architectures, without compromising on rigidity, automakers are performing R&D activities to replace steel with plastics, composites, foams, aluminum, and magnesium.

Demand for eco-friendly materials, especially from emerging countries, and strict fuel economy norms drive the growth of the automotive interior materials market. The recycling and recovery of end-of-life vehicles, which involves recovery targets of 85%, drive the automotive industry to adopt lightweight materials to meet these recovery targets.

However, high cost of pure leather due to demand–supply gap is expected to restrict the market growth in future. Technological developments in production processes of automotive interior materials are expected to reduce cost of production and lead to superior sustainability, leading to improvement in performance efficiency.

The global automotive interior materials market is segmented based on type, vehicle, and geography. The type segment is classified into plastics, metals, fabrics, leather, composites, and others.

Plastics are further segmented into polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), and others, whereas metals include steel, aluminum, and others. Genuine and synthetic leather constitute the leather segment. Composites are bifurcated into glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), while glass, wood, and rubber are some of the other materials utilized.

Based on vehicle type, the market is divided into passenger, light commercial vehicle (LCV), and heavy commercial vehicle (HCV). By geography, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

In 2015, it occupied the largest market share, followed by North America, due to major growth in the automotive industry for a decade. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market by 2022, witnessing substantial growth in widely populated countries such as India, China, and Indonesia.
