Covid-19 Scenario 

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse impact on the growth of the global electric vehicle plastic market. The pandemic disrupted global supply chains, which affected the production & distribution of electric vehicles and their components, including plastics. Besides, factory closures, raw material shortages, and transportation restrictions, resulted in supply chain bottlenecks, leading to delays in EV production. 
  • Besides, the automotive industry across the globe experienced a decline in sales during the epidemic due to economic uncertainties and reduced consumer spending. This decline in vehicle sales, including EVs, directly affected the demand for plastics used in EV manufacturing. 

Polyurethane (PUR) Sub-Segment to Witness Significant Growth During the Forecast Period 

Based on material, the polyurethane (PUR) sub-segment accounted for the highest market share of 16.0% in 2022. This is mainly because polyurethane is a lightweight material that helps reduce the overall weight of EVs. In addition, as PUR is used in various components, such as bumpers, interior parts, and body panels, manufacturers can extend the driving range and improve energy efficiency of EVs. Moreover, PUR offers excellent design flexibility, allowing manufacturers to create complex shapes and contours.

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) Sub-segment Held the Majority of Market Share in 2022 

Based on vehicle, the battery electric vehicles (BEVs) sub-segment held the highest share of 47.3% in the electric vehicle plastic market in 2022. The sub-segment is expected to foresee significant growth during the forecast period owing to the implementation of various policies and regulations by governments of different countries to promote the adoption of EVs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. Besides, the increasing shift of consumers towards cleaner and greener transportation options owing to the rising awareness about the environmental impact of fossil fuel-powered vehicles is another factor predicted to fuel the sub-segment's growth by 2032. 

Exterior Furnishing Sub-segment to Grow Significantly by 2032 

Based on application, the exterior furnishing sub-segment accounted for the largest share of the electric vehicle plastic market of 41.0% in 2022. The sub-segment is projected to grow significantly during the forecast period owing to the durability of plastics to provide adequate protection against harsh conditions, such as exposure to UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and chemicals, without significant degradation. Besides, EV manufacturers strive to reduce the overall weight of vehicles to enhance energy efficiency and extend driving range. 

Asia-Pacific Region to Flourish Immensely by 2032 

Based on region, Asia-Pacific dominated the global electric vehicle plastic market in terms of revenue market share of 39.5% in 2022. The prominent growth of the region can be attributed to increasing urbanization, rising need to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and growing concerns over air pollution, which has resulted in the increased demand for EVs. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is at the forefront of technological advancements in the EV industry. Manufacturers in countries like Japan and South Korea have been investing heavily in the R&D of EV technologies, including lightweight materials and advanced plastics, which is anticipated ti boost the regional growth during the forecast period.
