Market Dynamics

The widespread environmental protection of chlorinated rubber corrosion is a major market driver. Further, the ability of chlorinated rubber coating to be applied on a wide range of surfaces such as concrete, brickwork, steel, among others, also boost their demand in the market. However, the availability of alternative materials restraints the respective market’s growth.

The growing demand for protection and preservation of resale value among the automotive owners

Automotive decorative exterior trim plastics are plastic-based accessories attached to the exterior of an automotive to avail extra protection to the automotive from various external parameters. Since modern automotive customers are extremely peculiar for maintaining the aesthetics of automotive and are cautious in avoiding damages to vehicles to avoid diminishing the resale value of the automotive, the demand for automotive decorative exterior plastics is expected to skyrocket.

Further, the comparatively cheaper price points of plastic-based decorative exterior trims and the ease of installing them also boost the demand for automotive decorative trim plastic among automotive enthusiasts and owners. As a result, the growing demand for protection and preservation of resale value among the automotive owners could be considered a major market driver for the respective market.

Environmental impact of plastics and stringent regulations associated with it

Although automotive decorative exterior trim plastics are inexpensive and offer enhanced protection to the vehicles, they are manufactured from plastic materials such as polypropylene, polyurethane, polyamide and polyvinyl chloride. The environmental impact of such plastic-based materials is an important factor that must be considered, particularly in modernity, where the demand and awareness associated with environmental protection are at their peak.

The environmental impact of these plastic materials comes primarily in two ways; first, the huge carbon footprint involved in their production. Second is the lack of recyclability and generation of landfill wastes. The respective factors restrict the demand and sales of automotive decorative exterior trim plastics to an extent.

Further, due to the environmental impact of these products, the manufacturers have to go through an intensive network of red tapes to manage or expand production properly. Since these rules force manufacturers to spend more, thereby reducing the profit margins, many new manufacturers restrict themselves from entering the market or maintaining a manufacturing limit. As a result, the production of the respective product is hampered due to the environmental impact of plastics and stringent regulations associated with them.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global car decorative exterior trim plastics market during its initial waves due to the following factors:

  • The manufacture of car decorative exterior trim plastics has been affected due to the unavailability of raw materials, skilled people and production disruptions in the production process, which was greatly impeded by industry lockdowns and the demand for social isolation.
  • The global lockdown enforced due to the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the availability of raw materials and the supply of finished products, causing major disruptions in the supply-demand dynamics of the market.
  • The downfall of demand and sales in automotive businesses slowed overall activity in the respective market, limiting overall demand for automotive decorative exterior trim plastics.

However, as the effects of the pandemic fade, the global market for vehicle decorative exterior trim plastics is predicted to rise at a rapid pace. The anticipated rebound in sales and demand in the automotive sector post-COVID-19 scenario is a key element in the market's expansion.
