Stable Demand from Automotive Industry Propels Scratch-Resistant Compound Market
Scratch-resistant compounds are widely used by the automobile industry for interior design of the vehicle. The usage of the scratch-resistant compound has increased in the last few years in the automotive industry, due to its impact and scratch resistance property. With changing trends, customers prefer vehicles with aesthetic appeal, which further drives demand of dashboard manufacturing, interior, and exterior design. Automobile interior is majorly influenced by dashboard, hence accounted to have the maximum use of scratch-resistant compound.
Durability is one of the core properties of scratch-resistant compounds that makes it well-suited for auto makers. Industries have invested significant amount in R&D to get better compounds coupled with them being lightweight. This trend made it to the consumer appliance as well, which has elevated market of this compound. Additionally, scratch-resistant compounds have several applications like construction, automotive, consumer appliances, and others, which attributes to the growth of the market over the assessment period.
How Regulatory Norms Contribute Towards Scratch –Resistant Compound Demand?
Stringent regulatory norms declared to cut down carbon emission from automobile which supported the usage of the scratch-resistant compound, to reduce the gross vehicle weight. Enforcement like these is instrumental in driving the demand for the scratch-resistant compounds. Automobile industries are investing in research and development activities to develop better compounds that facilitate scratch resistance & rigidity and also comply with the strict regulations laid down by various regulatory bodies.
The market is witnessing higher growth due to the multiple usage of the compound, which includes door trim application as well. Scratch-resistant compounds are used in indoor trim applications as they facilitate easy assembly and also reduce the structural weight of the component along with improvement in user experience. Regulatory bodies have restricted the emission rate, which has contributed towards usage of lighter materials like scratch-resistant compounds, promoted the usage of scratch-resistant compound.
How Raw Material Alters the Scratch-Resistant Compound Market Growth?
Even though the market is sensitive due to rapid changes in the price of crude oil, market still observe the scratch-resistant compound growth. The price of resistance is directly dependent upon the crude oil price, as it is one of the key raw materials. However, abundant supply coupled with superior compound properties is expected to motivate the scratch –resistant compound market growth. The demand for scratch-resistant compounds rise, contribute to replacing traditional raw materials usage in the exterior as well as interior parts of the vehicle.
The application of scratch-resistant compound can further be studied, by capturing the instrumental panels market, by replacing engineering materials for manufacturing. Due to the unmatched properties of the raw material of the compound, can be even contribute in more applications. Airbags are another application of the compound, can provide good scope for future market growth. The scratch-resistant compound was growing at a steady pace, automotive industries started using it at a slower pace.
What is Regional Demand Landscape of Scratch-Resistant Compound?
With major involvement in producing scratch-resistant compounds, China likely to dominate the global scratch resistant compounds market. While China is one of the key producers of the compound it is also a prominent end user owing to the presence of large number of manufacturers of automotive, its parts and components. This factor is projected to drive the scratch resistance plastics market at a significant pace in the next few years.
North America and Europe are anticipated to constitute a major share of the global scratch resistance plastics market during the forecast period. Stringent regulations on vehicle safety in the U.S, France, and Germany are expected to boost the demand for scratch resistance compounds in the next few years. The market in Latin America, Middle East and Africa is likely to expand at a slower pace.
Australia, China, India, and Canada are accounted to have the significant share in the market. Rapid growth in the automotive industries contributed towards rise in the demand of scratch-resistant compounds. Due to manufacturing of new parts in the vehicle, Australia and Canada captured a huge market in manufacturing the compound. Scratch-resistant compound demand is likely to be low in North America during the forecast period, and this attributes to a dip in automotive production growth in the region. The demand from the European automobile industry can be attributed to stringent emission regulations.
Germany, being a major automobile manufacturing hub, is anticipated to account to produce more scratch-resistant compounds to match the demand. The global scratch resistant compound market Growth is anticipated to rise at a considerable rate during the forecast period, between 2021 and 2026. Major players in the market collaborated with other players to produce more compounds, this leads to the increased usage of other products as well.

How Covid-19 has impacted the Demand of Scratch Resistant Compound?
The scratch resistant compound market has been affected significantly due to the covid-19 pandemic. The production in this sector ceased due to worldwide lockdown, worsened with shirking investments in the industry by key manufacturers. Due to the disruption in the demand for automobiles, companies halted the purchase of scratch resistant compound. Apart from this, during a lockdown, key stakeholders of scratch resistant compound including raw material suppliers found it challenging to maintain the quality of the compound. Post lockdown, when demand again picked up the pace, industries denied using the old raw material, hence worsen the market for the raw material suppliers. Due to low usage of crude oil during the lockdown, crude oil prices started shooting up, contributes the most in producing scratch-resistant compound. Hence the demand for the scratch-resistant dropped for a while.
