Chromium (Cr) is an essential trace metal with a blue tinge that is produced by reducing chromite with carbon in an electric arc furnace. With the help of the electroplating technique, a thin layer of chromium is added to various metal objects, which assists in providing a gleaming surface to the outer layer and increasing its hardness. Apart from this, it enhances the durability, metallurgical, and corrosion-resistant properties of the product. Consequently, chromium is extensively used in the automotive industry to perform decorative or functional plating on various interior and exterior vehicle parts, including bumpers, grilles, logos, headlights, wheel skins, handles, and fuel doors.
Automotive Chromium Market Trends:
With the substantial expansion in the automotive sector, there has been increasing demand for decorative chrome plating to protect various parts of conventional and passenger vehicles from corrosion and scratches while providing brightness. In line with this, chromium exhibits resistance to oxidation, rust, and tarnish, due to which automobile manufacturers extensively utilize it as a decorative topcoat on stainless steel or nickel-plated elements. Furthermore, the rising need for lightweight vehicle parts to enhance automobile service life and performance, inflating disposable incomes, and changing consumer preferences, are propelling the market growth. Additionally, significant technological advancements and the establishment of smart automobile production facilities with lower operational costs are contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the shifting consumer preferences toward aesthetically appealing vehicles covered with trending chrome wrapping is impelling the market growth. Other factors, such as the growing trend of customization and strategic collaborations amongst key players to introduce innovative product variants catering to evolving consumer needs, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
