Price, trade, and supply and demand analysis on chemicals used in automobile manufacturing




Detailed Analysis of Chemicals Used in Automotive Manufacturing

The automotive and transport industry is an important consumer of petrochemicals and plastic resins for construction, safety, comfort, and performance.

Plastics used include polypropylene, polyurethanes, polyvinyl chloride, styrenics, ABS, polycarbonate, polyamide, and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). Some of these plastics are subject to extreme heat and light, so they need to be resistant or use polymer stabilizers to prolong the life of the component.



Plastics in Automotive Components

Today's automotive industry relies on a diverse array of chemicals. From antifreeze and hydraulic fluids to batteries, electronics, seating, trim, lighting, and beyond, explore materials shaping the industry. 

Plastics play a crucial role in many automotive components, including bumpers, headlights, doors, windows, dashboards, headrests, airbags, upholstery, and thermal and electrical insulation.




Advantages of Using Petrochemicals and Plastics

Petrochemicals and plastics offer several benefits in automotive manufacturing, including reducing the vehicle's weight and, together with the addition of antioxidants to fuel and the use of lubricants, engine performance is improved, and fuel consumption is reduced.
