On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the power train system/ engine component is expected to be the largest market and the under the body is expected to show the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022.

Within glass fiber market for automotive, sheet molding compound (SMC) and bulk molding compound (BMC), glass mat thermoplastic (GMT), short fiber thermoplastic (SFT), long fiber thermoplastic (LFT), continuous fiber thermoplastic (CFT), phenolic molding compound (PMC) and others are the intermediate materials to manufacture automotive components. SFT is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume, mainly driven by applications such as small complex shaped components in power train system/engine components applications.

Europe is expected to remain the largest market due to higher penetration of composites in automotive than other region. Government regulations, such as CAFÉ Standards in the US and carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate light-weight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for glass fiber in the automotive industry.
