Automotive Additives provide protection to both the exterior and interior components of a vehicle. UV absorbers are witnessing a significant demand in the automotive industry as they reduce photo-degradation and offer exceptional on-tone fading. UV absorbers also protect interior and exterior parts in a vehicle against strong heat and UV light for a long period of time. The demand for anti-dust additives is also increasing due to the rising pollution and off-road driving, resulting in dust and dirt particles on a vehicle. Meanwhile, manufacturers are also focusing on providing anti-scratch additives to increase the lifetime of the vehicle and maintain high-quality appearance, especially in the case of internal automotive parts. Hence, anti-scratch additives help to reduce friction. Thermal and light stabilizers are also being provided by the automotive additives manufacturers.
According to the latest report by Fact.MR, the global market for automotive additives is likely to experience above-average growth. The market is estimated to reach US$ 8,251.8 million revenue by 2022 end. Manufacturers in the automotive industry are focusing on developing highest performing solutions and with plastic emerging as the highest applied material in the interior, exterior and under the hood of the vehicle, automotive plastic additives are witnessing increased use in the automotive industry.
