Use of Plastics in Electric Vehicles - Jump in Market Revenues to $ 73 Million, Forecasts Frost & Sullivan

2,354 views

Published on

With the electric vehicle (EV) production set to grow at a CAGR of over 80 per cent until 2017, plastics used in these vehicles will also see a tremendous growth. The need to increase EV mile range, paralleled by the inherent advantages of plastics – particularly that of lightweight – will drive penetration rates.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.chemicals.frost.com), Strategic Analysis of Plastics in the Electric Vehicles Market in Europe and North America, finds that the market earned revenues of $ 0.5 million in 2010 and estimates this to reach $ 73 million in 2017.

  4. 4. Executive Summary• Driven by a rapid rise in the production of electric vehicles (EVs), the European and North American plastics market for EVs is in its early stages of growth.• Currently, the penetration level of plastics in many key applications is very low but is expected to gradually increase during the forecast period of 2011–2017.• Increased interest in polymeric materials is mainly driven by a lightweighting trend as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) look for alternative materials that offer high- performance characteristics and weigh as little as possible. Lightweighting is crucial in order to increase EV mile range.• Market growth is also set to follow new product developments that effectively address the unique challenges OEMs face with EVs.• In 2010, the total materials market for EVs was 200.8 tons by volume.• The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 97.6 percent during the forecast period to reach 23,613.4 tons in 2017.

  5. 5. Executive Summary• Battery casings and powertrains are the segments poised to offer high market growth because they are characterized by low levels of plastic penetration.• The need for lightweighting in EVs has driven some companies to use lightweight materials for structural components. For example, BMW is considering carbon fiber composites for their chassis. However, the body-in-white (BIW) construction of these EVs is similar to that of conventional vehicles and so is not considered as a part of the study. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.M743-39 5

  8. 8. Executive Summary—CEO’s Perspective Battery casings and powertrain systems offer 1 the greatest growth opportunities. The need to increase EV mile range and a 2 consequent lightweighting trend will favor the penetration of plastics. OEMs face a critical challenge to find a 3 plastic that matches desired performance characteristics. The lack of an established recycling process 4 for automotive plastics may be a challenge in the long run for the adoption of plastics. OEMs will look to innovative products that may help address strength and 5 electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.M743-39 8
