Automotive Interior Material Market Overview


The automotive interior material market size is estimated to reach USD 149.6 billion by the end of the current forecast period in 2030, at a CAGR of 4.50%. The automotive interior materials market has a higher penetration in the Asian Pacific region and the Middle East & Africa. This growth can be attributed to the rising economic condition and urbanization in the Asian Pacific and the Middle East & African countries. In addition, optimizing fuel efficiency by reducing the overall vehicle weight, followed by other factors like the increased globalization and the high demand for new technologies and customization, are driving the automotive interior materials market.


COVID 19 Analysis


The global pandemic has affected the automotive interior material market, which is expected to be moderately affected due to disruptions in the global supply chain. The global market functioning is highly dependent on the refinery & petrochemical, chemical, metal, and other power generation industries. China is a significant market for exports and industrial production, and the imposition of strict lockdowns in the country's significant provinces affected the industrial activities. The propelling demand for industrial equipment declined significantly in the first quarter of 2022, mainly due to the outbreak of COVID-19, followed by the imposition of restrictions and lockdown. The Chinese region is among the largest producers of automobiles. However, many disruptions in the supply of raw material have weakened the production of automotive interior material in the country.


Automotive Interior Material Market Dynamics




  • Drivers




The availability of affordable vehicles has grown considerably over the recent years due to increased traveling among people, and the same can be seen during the continuous period. Subsequently, it has resulted in the increased expectation of automotive interior designs, and these are both visually appealing and comfortable. Furthermore, the increased technological advancements in the market and the rising demand for customization of automotive interior materials are driving the market. Therefore, the global automotive interior material market companies are offering customizations to create innovative interiors following the customer's demand. Furthermore, there has been an increase in health awareness among consumers, and it is encouraging companies to introduce eco-friendly automotive interior materials, which will help enhance comfortable driving. These factors influence the growth of the automotive interior material market and will expand the market share during the period ending in 2030.


It is imperative to understand that the automotive interior materials market includes various functions, and leather manufacturing is one. The tanning process in leather manufacturing is a sub-divided market inclusion is the most polluting stage of leather processing. It includes metals such as chromium, aluminum chlorides, sulfates of potassium, and others like aluminum and zirconium sulfates. Hence, with the help of green chemistry, global market manufacturers have developed methods to use safer chemicals that can be disposed of quickly. The unique techniques among them include tanning skins with glutaraldehyde in unnatural d-AA such as d-alanine or d-lysine. These highlight results like providing high leather stability due to the bridging feature of the carboxylic and the amino group of the amino acids. The wastewater generated amid the conduction of such processes contains no hazardous chemicals, as toxic tanning agents are not used during the described process. Hence, wastewater and water treatment system plants gain the benefit from proper handling and final disposal of waste. All these factors are likely to play a significant role in the expansion of the automotive interior material market during the period ending in 2030.




  • Restraints




As a primary market function, Genuine leather is the most expensive material currently used as automotive upholstery and causes issues for the market players that eye on expansion and growth. The leather processing industry is witnessing many effects in most developed markets due to the stringent environmental regulations that have made it difficult for local or regional manufacturers in these regions to remain profitable and expand during the continuous period. Following this, there has been an increase in the import of leather from African countries with heavy leather, and the Asian Pacific region like India with light leather was observed. However, the birth of market factors like a high import price, availability of alternatives like synthetic leather, and others like the changing perception of consumers toward genuine leather has compelled most manufacturers to switch to eco-friendly alternatives.
