Global Plastic Component Market for Heavy-Duty Vehicles Research Overview


Due to their adaptability, ease of manufacturing, moldability, light weight, waterproof properties, and low cost, plastics, also known as polymers, are used to make a wide array of products ranging from paper clips to spaceships. Traditionally, natural gas and petroleum have been used to make them. Manufacturers are now using renewable sources as a result of diminishing polymer sources. It is also produced from renewable biomass sources such as corn starch, sawdust, vegetable fats and oils, and food waste. Additionally, growing knowledge of the harm that polymers to the environment encourages producers to create recyclable goods. The major driving factor of the market is the surge in demand for high-performance plastic packaging solutions for product protection.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Automotive Plastic Component Market


When COVID-19 spread ly last year, it showed that it was harmful. The pandemic COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted production facilities all over the world, affecting the automotive industries' supply chain. Since the expansion of this market has a direct impact on the manufacturing of vehicles, it is anticipated that the lockdown phase will have an impact on the value of the heavy-duty vehicle the market. The market for lightweight materials is expected to suffer as a result of the decline in vehicle production.

Plastic Component Market for Heavy-Duty Vehicles Dynamics


During the projection period, it is predicted that rising plastic use in the construction, automotive, and electrical & electronics industries will boost market expansion. Plastic is increasingly being used as a substitute for metals, such as aluminum and steel, in the production of automobile components in response to regulations aiming to lower gross vehicle weight in order to increase fuel efficiency and eventually reduce carbon emissions. The development of the building sector in developing nations like Brazil, China, India, and Mexico has also significantly increased the demand for plastics. Because of loosened FDI regulations and demands for better public and industrial infrastructure, there has been an increase in foreign investment in certain domestic construction markets.


Market Key Drivers




  • Market demand for plastic to rise due to the packaging industry




Numerous industries, including food & beverage, consumer goods, automotive, and electrical & electronics, are experiencing an increase in product demand.  product consumption is being driven by the food and beverage industry's rising demand for packaging materials. Food producers prefer to utilize packaging that prevents contamination and minimizes food quality deterioration. The need is being fueled by plastic's capacity to serve as a shield between food products and the outside world.


Market Key Restraints:




  • Rigid plastic use regulations to impact growth




Regulations regarding product use are anticipated to have an impact on market growth. As polymers are harmful to environment because it has grown, strict government laws and other measures have been implemented. Many businesses and governments have worked to adopt more environmentally friendly and non-plastic alternatives in an effort to lessen the environmental damage brought on by the use of plastic. Conventions against the use of plastic and the shift toward non-polymer items jointly hinder the market growth. For example, presidents of state, environment ministers, and other delegates from 175 nations approved a historic decision to eliminate plastic waste and create an international legally binding pact by the end of 2024 in March 2022 at the UN Environment Assembly held in Nairobi.


Market Key Opportunities:




  • The rise in the adoption of electric vehicles




In the automotive business, electric cars are regarded as a technological revolution. Comparing these vehicles to their internal combustion competitors, they give the best performance. Electric vehicles outperform gas-powered alternatives in terms of energy independence, efficiency, and reliability. Additionally, since electric cars need lightweight materials and have minimal engine power, their ability to pull is likely to be limited. Consequently, the growing demand for electric vehicles presents a chance for the heavy-duty vehicle the market to expand.
