Northbrook, IL, USA, 2021-Sep-25 — /EPR Network/ —

Electric vehicle (car) polymers are the polymers that are used in electric cars to reduce the overall weight of these cars. These polymers are an ideal solution for the replacement of metals, as they have similar properties to those of metals, such as flame retardancy, abrasion resistance, stiffness, toughness, electrical insulation, and heat resistance. Replacing metals with the polymers helps the electric car manufacturers to reduce the overall weight of the electric cars. The rising demand for light weighting electric vehicles is expected to drive the electric vehicle (car) polymers market. MarketsandMarkets expects the global electric vehicle (car) polymers market size to grow from USD 4.1 billion in 2019to USD 52.5 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 67%.

The growth of these polymers is attributed to the increasing demand for electric cars from several countries including China, the US, and Germany. Increasing regulations to reduce the carbon footprint, developing charging infrastructure, decreasing battery prices, and longer driving ranges of electric cars are the major factors augmenting the growth of electric cars, globally. The electric car manufacturers have to use higher capacity batteries to match the range of the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars. This leads to the increased weight of electric cars and is a major issue faced by these manufacturers. Hence, electric cars require lighter bodies to reduce their overall weight.

The electric vehicle (car) polymers market is projected to register the higher CAGR in the engineering plastics type segment than the elastomers type, during the forecast period. These polymers have superior thermal and mechanical properties that include high temperature resistance, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, and corrosion resistance. In addition, these polymers have various advantages over the metals, such as they can easily produce complex components as one unit, improve performance by reducing the vibration and noise, improve aesthetics, and reduce maintenance requirements. Owing to their enhanced properties and advantages, they are used in electric cars as a substitute for metals to fulfill the purpose of light weighting of the cars. The need for light weighting of electric cars around the globe will drive the market of engineering plastics during the forecast period.
