The Japan Automotive Composite Market Size is Expected to Reach USD 3.88 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 8.93% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032. 

 

Market Overview

A composite material is composed of two or more integral materials. Composite materials are used in the automotive industry because they are lightweight, strong, less expensive, and more durable than traditional materials. A variety of automotive components, including the body and other parts, use composite materials. Carbon-fiber composites are one-fifth the weight of steel while maintaining or exceeding rigidity and strength. The use of composite materials in the automotive industry has grown in recent years. The use of thermoset compound goods is growing, and Mar-Bal, a thermoset compound product leader, meets the advanced requirements of this highly engineered industry. Thermoset compounds are used on exterior and interior vehicle parts and offer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) lower weight, durability, and a variety of other benefits.

Driving Factors

The rising demand for fuel-efficient and light-weight vehicles is expected to propel the Japanese automotive composite market. Reinforced glass and thermoplastic composite materials are attracting the interest of automakers due to their lighter, better, and tensile components, which are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. In addition, rising demand for eco-friendly and lightweight electric vehicles is expected to drive the Japan automotive composite market. Furthermore, major corporations such as BMW and Nissan are attempting to replace existing parts with composite materials.  

 

Restraining Factors

The high cost of composite material is expected to hamper market growth, as is the low recyclability of composite material in the Japan automotive composite market.

 

Market Segment

  • In 2022, the injection molding segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the production type, the Japan automotive composite market is segmented into hand layup, resin transfer molding, vacuum infusion molding, injection molding, and compression molding. Among these, the injection molding segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Injection molding (IM) is a polymeric part manufacturing process that involves injecting molten thermoplastic polymer into a mold cavity. It primarily produces geometrically complex parts with high dimensional accuracy. The numerical investigation of injection molding of carbon fiber composite automotive wheels with complex shapes.  

 

In 2022, the thermoset polymer segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on material type, the Japan automotive composite market is segmented into thermoset polymer, thermoplastic polymer, carbon fiber, glass fiber, and others. Among these, the thermoset polymer segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Manufacturers of racing cars and luxury sports cars use thermoset polymer to make parts. These composite parts are lightweight, which improves vehicle fuel efficiency. In addition to their low cost and ease of fabrication, polymer matrix composites are popular in the automotive industry. They have a high strength-to-weight ratio, high abrasion resistance, high tensile strength, and good corrosion resistance, among other desirable mechanical properties.

 

  • In 2022, the exterior segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the application, the Japan automotive composite market is segmented into structural assembly, power train components, interior, exterior, and others. Among these, the exterior segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The major components of the car body, such as the bumper beam, door panels, front end module, and hood, are made of composite materials. Some of the most important are composite parts with a higher strength-to-weight ratio, excellent surface finish, corrosion and abrasion resistance, and durability. The combined effects of the aforementioned factors provide automakers with multiple advantages, as these factors not only help automakers meet stringent regulations regarding fuel efficiency enhancements and carbon emission reductions but also provide more durable parts with the benefit of low maintenance costs.
