Plastics for Electric Vehicle Market to Undertake Strapping Growth by the End 2027.

Posted by niket gore on September 19th, 2022

Plastics can be an electric conductor and also an insulator. Thermoplastics polymer can be produced in various shapes and designs as per the requirement of electric vehicles due to the high versatility and easy moldability of plastics. The use of plastics for electric vehicles reduces the weight of these vehicles, which provides a greater range between recharges. Plastics offer excellent heat resistance that enables the construction of battery compartments and cooling systems and do not hamper the durability and safety provided by electric vehicles. The injection-molded plastics are less costly than metal components, which attracts the attention of the manufactures of electric vehicles.

Automobile manufacturing is shifting toward generating less emissions of greenhouse gases and becoming fuel-efficient with the growing emphasis on environmental sustainability. Cost-effectiveness; environment sustainability; convenience; adoption of advanced technology; and various government policies such as preferential rates, incentives toward equipment purchase, and significant rebates are among the factors propelling the demand for electric vehicles across the world. According to IEA, 40% year-on-year increase has been registered with the sales of 2.1 million electric cars globally in 2019, significantly surpassing that of 2018. The increasing number of investments brought by OEMs is creating a technological revolution across the automotive industry across the world. The rising demand for electric vehicles propels the growth of other industries such as plastics, as it is one of the preferred materials used in the manufacturing of these vehicles. Plastic is alternatively used in place of metals for cooling pipes and fans, and other automotive components— such as energy recovery devices, casing materials, and others. The stringent emission norms and regulations implemented by governments are also motivating the manufacturers to minimize the weight of passenger cars and look for environment-friendly automotive options. Further, the advancement of technologies such as hybrid, plug-in-hybrid, and battery electric vehicles would offer lucrative opportunities for the plastics for the electric vehicle market during the forecast period. All such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global electric vehicles plastic market.

The COVID-19 outbreak was first reported in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdown measures implemented to control the spread of the virus are putting limitations on the supplies of chemicals and materials products. Therefore, the players operating in the plastics for electric vehicle market are facing a significant loss.

BASF SE; Solvay S.A.; DuPont de Nemours, Inc.; The Dow Chemical Company; LG Chem Ltd; Lanxess AG; Sabic; Covestro AG; Asahi Kasei Corporation; and LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V. are among the players operating in the global plastics for electric vehicle market.
