Key Market Trends

Stringent Government Regulations To Drive The Market Growth

Stringent government regulations for emission control is the primary factor to drive the automotive engine encapsulation market during the forecasted period. Its advantages ranged from reducing carbon emissions from vehicle and unwanted airborne noise, increasing fuel efficiency, and enhance engine performance. As governments from around the world are implementing stringent emission regulations and even are planning to set even higher emissions standards in the coming years, the importance of automotive engine encapsulation will increase. The United States regulations mandate that by 2025, the average fuel economy standard must meet 54.5 miles per gallon. As per the US Department of Energy (DOE), reducing the weight of vehicles by 10% yields an increase of 6-8% in fuel economy. As a result, companies have started using materials like carbon fiber and glass fiber composites for engine encapsulation. EU emission regulations mandate a mere 95 g/Km of CO2 by 2021, with another 15% reduction by 2025, and in 2030, a further 30% reduction from 2021.

According to European directives and standards (2000/53/EC-End Life 0f Vehicles), US Department of Transportation, the automotive manufacturing industry has to follow certain norms in regarding environmentally friendly recycling and dismantling of vehicles, higher fuel efficiency standards, and increase in the use of recyclable materials which offers high potential for the composites market to grow during the forecasted period. A slowdown in global economic growth and structural change in the automotive industry are hurting this market, but during the forecasted period, the automotive encapsulation market is expected to grow.

Automotive Engine Encapsulation Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific Is Leading the Automotive Encapsulating Market

Chinese automotive exports are heavily influenced by global economy and environmental regulations. Recent changes in the regulations across the world has had little to no impact on the growth rate of sales in 2019. In 2019, around 285,000 commercial vehicles and 725,000 passenger cars were exported from China. Since a few years back, China has been world’s largest car production country. Over one quarter of the global passenger cars were manufactured in China in 2018, exceeding the overall share of the European Union. In other car markets, Chinese car brands enjoy a significant cast advantage over imported cars from international automobile manufacturers. Thus, other developing countries and emerging markets were the main export destinations for Chinese vehicle exports. With rules and regulations changing around the world and introduction of China 6 regulations, Chinese manufacturers are expected to gain momentum, this paired with low labour cost and high technological manufacturing this market is expected to boom during the forecasted period. In terms of material, the carbon fiber segment is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecasted period as it is light weight and has high temperature resistance. Most sports cars and high-end vehicles have engine encapsulation made from carbon fiber. In 2017, the carbon fiber market alone reached 23.5 Kt, soaring from 19.9% from a year earlier and sharing 27.9% global total. The figure rose to 26.6 Kt in 2018. In 2018, China produced 12% of the world carbon fiber and ranked 3rd in the global production. The body mounted segment is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecasted period. Most of the mid and luxurt segment passenger vehicles are equipped with body mounted encapsulation, hence the segment is likely to account for a major share of the automotive engine encapsulation market. The growth of middle-class population in the region is driving the sales of automobiles and with above mentioned factors, China is expected to lead the market during the forecasted period.
