Market Overview

The automotive fuel tank market was valued at USD 20.5 billion in 2020. It is projected to reach USD 27.4 billion by 2026. The market is poised to register a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the economies worldwide and the impact has been felt by all the industries. However, the automotive industry has been significantly hit hard by the pandemic. Challenges that emerged from the worldwide lockdowns are immense and insurmountable in many areas. The automotive industry has faced many supply chain disruptions due to lockdowns. As the situation is returning to normalcy, the market is expected to recover and grow positively during the forecast period.

Growing demand for lightweight vehicles for fuel efficiency, increasing vehicle production, and rapid urbanization are the key drivers that are expected to drive the market growth in the coming years. One of the major factors driving the growth of the market is the increasing demand for, and sales of, commercial vehicles, owing to the rise in the e-commerce sector resulting in the growth of the logistics industry and the construction sector. However, factors such as growing penetration and demand for electric vehicles and rising prices of base metals, like aluminum, may hinder the growth of the market studied.

Manufacturers across the world are substituting metal fuel tanks with plastic fuel tanks to reduce the vehicle weight, in order to fulfil the growing demand and satisfy the discerning customer requirements. Plastic fuel tanks have many inherent advantages over metal fuel tanks, which is augmenting their popularity in the automotive fuel tank market. As a result, plastic has become more preferred than any other material for building fuel tanks.

Key Market Trends

The 45-70 liter Fuel Tank Segment is Expected to Dominate the Automotive Fuel Tank Market

The 45-70 liter fuel tank segment of the market studied is expected to register a CAGR of over 4.8% during the forecast period. Most of the new vehicle models launched by automobile manufacturers over the past five years had a minimum tank capacity of 45 liters, to meet the growing demand for vehicles that are well suited for long journeys and have greater mileage range. Apart from this factor, large capacity fuel tanks help in occupying the dead space available within the chassis of the vehicle. Moreover, with the additional weight, they add stability to the car’s dynamics.

Most of the compact cars are equipped with 45-liter fuel tanks while most sedans are equipped with a fuel tank capacity between 45-70 liters. The SUVs require fuel tanks with a capacity above 70 liters. As many countries, such as Japan, China, India, Germany, France, and Spain, are seeing demand for more sedan cars, the 45-70 liter capacity is estimated to be the largest market. The SUVs and other commercial vehicles have demand in the United States, China, and Germany. Hence, these regions are expected to drive the above 70-liter segment of the market studied.

 Automotive Fuel Tank Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Automotive Fuel Tank Market and is Expected to Witness the Fastest Growth Rate

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 4.52% during the forecast period. The automotive sector in both developed and emerging countries in the region is witnessing an expansion, supported by the increasing demand for passenger cars. China and India have been the prime contributors to vehicle sales in Asia-Pacific.

In Asia-Pacific, in 2020, China dominated the regional market and accounted for 64.12% share of the total market, followed by Japan and India. China is one of the major manufacturers of vehicles, globally. The increased sales of vehicles in the country are expected to drive the automotive fuel tank market. Despite the pandemic, in 2020, vehicle sales totaled 25.31 million in China, just down by 1.9% Y-o-Y.

Owing to the increasing sales of mini and medium segment cars, India is expected to play a crucial role in the overall market during the forecast period. In 2020, India sold about 2.77 million vehicles. In Japan, domestic automobile production witnessed a steady rise over the past decade, owing to the weaker Japanese Yen and a stronger global market for the automotive industry. In 2020, all vehicle sales grew to reach 4,598,615 units.
