Market Overview

The automotive interiors market was valued at USD 109 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 141 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of about 5% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026).

The COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the growth of the automotive interior market due to its impact on vehicle production. However, a steady recovery post-2020 in vehicle production will support the growth of this market in the coming years. For instance, Marelli had a significant impact of COVID-19 on its overall production in the first two quarters of 2020. The company had to shut its facilities for around two weeks in the country after the nationwide lockdown, which started in March 2020. However, the company resumed its operations in April 2020 with the necessary measures.

Increasing safety concerns among consumers, a rising number of technological advancements, and a surge in demand for luxurious vehicles are expected to boost the market growth. Government support for lightweight and safety vehicles is likely to surge the market growth. 

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share in terms of consumption in the automotive interior materials market. Japan and China will be the primary support for the region’s increasing demand. Moreover, an improved outlook for product demand in India is yet another potential factor for the growth. Europe, with its large OEM base of automobile manufacturers, will also add up to the demand in the interior material market.

As such, the infotainment screens have become the main focal points for every automaker, and these screens are packed with the latest technology capabilities, as the 2021 Mercedes S-Class will be coming with five touch screens along with the central unit of a 12.8-inch OLED screen. Honda revealed the new Honda E, which has pillar to pilar screens. This includes two 6-inch screens with an 8.8 TFT screen and two 12.3-inch LCD screens.

Automakers are constantly upgrading their infotainment systems to provide the best features and technologies to their customers. Some of the recent launches and models are:

  • In July 2020, Volkswagen announced the upgrades in its 2021 lineup of vehicles, one of the main changes is the MIB3 infotainment system. The new MIB3 infotainment system offers wireless App-Connect, with multi-phone pairing and enhanced voice recognition.

The MIB3 infotainment system features a redesigned navigation system with enhanced map designs, intuitive route options, quick access to frequently visited locations, and advanced route management. MIB3 also has SiriusXM’s newest and most advanced audio entertainment platform SiriusXM with 360L.

As the cars are coming with more and more connected features, the telecom and technology players are partnering with major automotive players to develop the best connectivity and infotainment solutions for the customers. For instance,

  • In May 2020, Honda entered a partnership with Tencent to develop an infotainment system for the Chinese market. The new infotainment system will enable passengers to listen to Tencent's exclusive music streaming content, internet radio, and audiobooks and newspapers.
