Automotive Ceramics Market Insights: Historical Trends from 2017-2021 Vs Future Market Outlook for 2022-2032

According to Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, from 2017 to 2021, automotive ceramics sales expanded at a CAGR of over 5%, attributed to extensive uptake across the automotive electronics domain. As emission standards toughen, consumers are opting for sustainable alternatives, including electric vehicles, which also elevated prospects.

As per Fact.MR’s insights into the automotive ceramics market, amidst the COVID-19 crisis, sales were estimated at nearly US$ 2 Billion during FY 2020-21. Imposition of mandatory lockdowns slowed expansion prospects, as key automotive companies temporarily ceased production. Adjusting for this downswing, prospects have been revised for the market to expand at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2032.

Which Emerging Trends Are Driving Demand for Automotive Ceramics?

Increasing Deployment of Electronics Nudging Automotive Ceramics Demand

As technological advancements penetrate the global automotive industry, manufacturers are incorporating numerous electronic systems to streamline overall driving experiences for vehicle owners. Electronic systems such as in-car entertainment systems, radio, ignition, telematics and computers are becoming increasingly mainstream.

Modern electric cars rely on power electronics for the main propulsion motor control, as well as managing the battery system. Future autonomous cars will rely on powerful computer systems, an array of sensors, networking, and satellite navigation, all of which will require electronics. Hence, sales of automotive ceramics are bound to incline significantly.

Implementation of Strict Vehicle Emission Norms Catalyzing Demand for Automotive Ceramics

As greenhouse gas emission levels increase at an alarming rate, governments worldwide are attempting to rein in these harmful emissions, majority of which are generated from excessive automotive usage. In an effort reduce greenhouse gases, emission control regulations are becoming stringent, prompting vehicle manufacturers to introduce fuel-efficient automobiles.

For instance, the European Union is actively endorsing the Euro 6 emission standard since 2014. For a diesel car to be Euro 6 compliant, it should not emit more than 80 mg/km of NO­x gases, while a petrol car can emit no more than 60 mg/km. From 2025, the Euro 7 standards would be applicable. Such tough legislations are compelling auto manufacturers to incorporate automotive ceramics and enhance vehicular performance.
