Global Automotive Headliner Market is segmented By Headliner Type (Built-In, Tilt and Slide, Top Mount, Panoramic, Others), By Material (Fabric, Suede, Carbon Fiber, Vinyl, Others), By Adhesive (Aerosol Spray, Liquid), By Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicles, Light Commercial Vehicles, Heavy Commercial Vehicles), By Distribution Channel (OEMs, After Market), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2022-2029


Market Overview

The global automotive headliner market is expected to reach at a CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2029.

 An automotive headliner comprises an outside layer of fabric, an inner hard substrate, and an inner foam backing glued to an automobile's roof. Headliners provide heat and noise insulation and conceal wiring and hardware for electrical components, antennae and other accessories. A standard headliner comprises several layers, including foam material, commonly polyurethane. The foam is sprayed or attached to a headliner board mounted to the roof. Therefore, the material softens the headliner and insulates the inside against heat and noise. Furthermore, this composite product increases the interior appeal of the car.

Market Dynamics

Rising interest in interior design, perceived quality and convenience aspects in the automotive sector is expected to drive the global automotive headliner market. However, the high cost of the modern headliner and overhead systems and their maintenance restraint the market.

Rising interest in interior design, perceived quality and convenience aspects in the automotive sector

An automotive headliner is often made of a face cloth with a foam backing or a non-woven material. Headliners are often comprised of numerous layers that serve multiple functions. The combination of layers and materials can create the required look, feel and stiffness to deliver the car's qualities.

Furthermore, the headliner improves the acoustics for audio systems adapted to particular automobiles' interiors. Typically, a bottom layer of fabric or vinyl covers the foam insulation. It is the headliner's visible component that completes the interior's aesthetic. Besides, the headliner board contains cutouts for lighting, grab handles, speakers and other vehicle-specific accessories. Replacement headliners shops can replace the original fabric with coverings made of other materials or colors and cut and shape them to fit on the original headliner board.

High cost of the modern headliner and overhead systems and their maintenance

A headliner can sag due to gravity and the glue losing its adhesion over time as the headliner is composed of numerous layers. Moisture and heat, for example, might cause the headliner to sag with time. Because of the lack of rigidity and taut material, moisture and heat can cause materials to shrink, causing them to be separated from the outer pressboard. According to Checkatrade, a typical full headliner repair cost is US$ 250. Labor and material costs are included in the prices, ranging from US$ 100 to US$ 400. Furthermore, a full replacement for a high-end vehicle will cost more.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Automotive OEMs and mobility industry businesses were the hardest hit during the COVID-19 crisis. COVID-19, by driving changes in the macroeconomic climate, legislative tendencies, technology and consumer behaviors, could have a long-term impact on mobility. However, because trends fluctuate by region, responses and results for mobility players will vary.

Segment Analysis

The global automotive headliner market is segmented into a liquid and aerosol spray based on adhesive.

Liquid headliner adhesives have a concentrated dispersion and are best suited for precision jobs. The adhesives are also extremely long-lasting, forming a very strong relationship. The glue can be used with a spray gun or roller for easier application and distribution. However, purchasing those accessories will raise the cost of your repairs.

Aerosol spray adhesives are more convenient to use than liquid adhesives. The glue is often packaged in a 12-18 ounce aerosol can with a spray nozzle, allowing it to be applied smoothly, easily and evenly on large surfaces without using a spray gun or roller. While less durable than liquid adhesives in general, they are robust enough for headliner repairs. Most models can tolerate temperatures of up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Although there are numerous adhesive manufacturers and brands, not all of them provide glues with the qualities required for repairing damaged vehicle headliners. The most well-known and renowned companies and brands that sell headliner adhesives include 3M, Permatex, Loctite and Gorilla.

Geographical Analysis

Based on geography, the global automotive headliner market is segmented into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa.

Asia-Pacific is expected to have a considerable market share due to the region's expanding population and urbanization, which are the key causes for the growth in the automotive headliner industry. In addition, low labor costs and easily accessible raw materials boost the region's insulating product production.

In 2019, China produced 25 million vehicles, accounting for around 28 percent of global automobile production in the same year. Rising urbanization, solid economic development and rising middle-class spending power are primary reasons driving regional automobile sector expansion.

Moreover, some of the world's largest automakers have relocated their manufacturing operations to the region because of the abundance of raw materials, inexpensive labor, good regulations and other factors. In addition, supportive government measures have attracted significant private investment in the Asia-Pacific automobile industry. For example, Morris Garages (MG) intends to invest over US$ 400 million in India to improve its position in the rapidly rising SUV segment.
