Automotive Front end Module Market Overview

The automotive front-end module market is anticipated to register USD 1,21,080 million at a CAGR of over 5.80% during the forecast period ending in 2030. The front-end modules were mostly designed and fabricated with weighted steel materials. However, in the current scenario lightweight composite materials, like polypropylene, glass mat thermoplastic, long fiber thermoplastic (LFT), direct LFT aluminum, etc. are used in manufacturing front-end modules. Skyworks Solutions of Woburn, in the United States, has designed front-end modules that provide wireless technology for the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and GPS-enabled tracking products. Tracking is becoming an increasingly vital opportunity, as the Internet of Things explosion proliferates and encompasses a wide range of new and previously unimagined applications, ranging from smart meters and connected vehicles to security systems. The combination of IoT with front-end module products is said to propel the market for front-end modules at a significant pace over the forecast period.

COVID 19 Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the globe. In March 2020, the declaration of coronavirus as a pandemic by the WHO has resulted in lockdowns being implemented in many countries. The strict restrictions that have been imposed by government authorities have compelled industry players to let their employees to work remotely and in a virtual manner. However, the adoption of automated developed technologies to lesson human interaction in manufacturing and production facilities is expected to support the widespread growth of the global earthmoving equipment market during the forecast period that will be ending in 2030. The widespread use of technologies, including automated machinery and advanced electronics, has not only ensured the continuous running of businesses during the pandemic but has further improved work productivity.

The growing degree of sales of excavators and related products is likely to play a main role in generating revenue for the earthmoving equipment industry. The growth of the demand for the products can be attributed to their high usage in the construction of commercial and residential buildings. The market report shows that there has been an increased demand for the products and hence, the losses during the pandemic are likely to be covered in the period. The fluctuating degree of sales of excavators is further expected to hamper the global growth of the earthmoving equipment market over the projected timeframe.

Market Dynamics

  • Drivers

A front-end module (FEM) is a main structural component of automobiles, offering support and safety in the event of an accident, in addition to functional features, such as air cooling, heating, lighting, exterior styling, and aesthetics.

Traditionally, front-end modules had hefty steel carriers. But with the rising focus on reducing the weight of the vehicles in the past few years has led to increasing usage of lightweight composites, instead of steel and iron, for the structural carriers of FEMs.

The demand for lightweight materials from automakers has significantly grown over the decade, owing to the enactment of stringent emission standards. As lightweight auto parts reduce the overall weight of the vehicles, it can, in turn, reduce CO2 emissions and expense. Experimenting with front-end module materials in auto parts has predominately contributed to achieving 20%-30% of vehicle weight reductions.

  • Restraints

However, the automotive frond end module market value is likely to be hampered during the ongoing forecast period that will be ending in 2028. The trends suggest that the global market is likely to witness a decline in sales due to the outbreak of the virus which has targeted the employment of people. Also, the capacity of the people to spend their disposable income has declined which is likely to give a hard growth to the market during the ongoing forecast period.

  • Technology Analysis

Composites have experienced widespread use in the automotive industry, owing to their ever-higher strength-to-weight ratios, corrosion resistivity, and workability characteristics. They are replacing metal in various automotive applications, because of their light-weight but durable nature, which contribute to lesser fuel consumption. With the growing automotive industry and the rising need for materials that may help to save fuel consumption, the market for composite front-end modules is poised to continue to grow during the forecast period.


In recent times, several vehicles are launched in the market with front-end modules made of composite materials. The currently launched Hyundai and two small segment cars from Mercedes use a lightweight front end construction that allows for the integration of additional functionality in components, which in turn saves assembly time, reduces costs, and decreases mass. Carriers for all three vehicles make use of injection-moulded pelletized LFT-PP.
