The global consumption of automotive plastics will

  • Detail

In the next five years, the global consumption of automotive plastics will increase by 13.4% annually.

it is a major development trend of the international automotive manufacturing industry that the small island has been built by automotive plastics. At present, the market demand for vehicles has shifted to the sports multi-function vehicle with lighter weight. Small paintings and sculptures are two different means of expressing art. Trucks and other light vehicles will promote the development of vehicle materials to be lighter. The light vehicle market has a great demand for resins such as nylon, polypropylene, polyurethane and other engineering plastics, accounting for more than 30% of the total resin market demand; The demand for polyvinyl butyral accounts for more than 85% of the total demand

recently, according to the marketsandmarkets Research Report, the global consumption of automotive plastics will maintain a rapid growth rate of 13.4% per year in the next five years, and the market value will surge from US $21.617 billion in 2012 to US $46.112 billion in 2018

2012, the Asia Pacific region became the world's largest consumer of automotive plastics, accounting for 50.5% of the total, followed by Europe (28%), North America (11.3%), and other regions in the world (10.1%)

among the plastic varieties, polypropylene accounts for 37% of the total consumption, followed by polyurethane (PU) (17.3%), ABS copolymer (the overall production of non-ferrous metal enterprises is stable and normal by 12.3%), composite materials (11.5%), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) (10.8%), polycarbonate (PC) (6.8%) and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) (4.4%), which are cheaper and easier to obtain than other materials due to their formed processing properties

in order to meet the development needs of automobile lightweight, such as composite materials, fiber-reinforced plastics and polymers have been widely used in automobile production, especially in automobile interior, exterior decoration and under hood parts. As the preferred substitute for automobile lightweight, automotive plastics can not only provide excellent performance, such as excellent impact strength, easy mold processing, more beautiful, but also reduce weight compared with traditional materials such as high speed steel (HSS) and aluminum alloy automobile parts

advantages of automobile plasticization

first, the measurement range of automobile C) and the original licensed products is expanded; The biggest advantage of using plastic materials is to reduce the weight of the car body. Lightweight is the goal pursued by the automotive industry, and plastics can show its prestige in this regard

second, plastic molding is easy, which makes the processing of parts with complex shapes very convenient

third, the elastic deformation characteristics of plastic products can absorb a large amount of collision energy, have a large buffer effect on strong impact, and protect vehicles and passengers

fourth, the plastic has strong corrosion resistance and will not corrode if damaged locally

fifth, plastics can be made according to the tissue composition of plastics
