Recyclable materials for automobile interior Market Report – Key Takeaways:

  • European Green Deal and the Circular Economy Action Plan

on July 13, 2023, the commission proposed a new Regulation on ELV following review. The proposal for an ELV Regulation, in line with the European Green Deal and the Circular Economy Action Plan, builds on and replaces two existing Directives: Directive 2000/53/EC on ELV and Directive 2005/64/EC on the type-approval of motor vehicles regarding their reusability, recyclability, and recoverability. It states that at least 25% of the plastic used to create a vehicle must be recycled (with 25% coming from recycled ELVs).

  • Trend Towards Sustainability

The automotive sector is seeing a global movement towards sustainability, with a growing focus on mitigating environmental effects. automobile interiors made of recyclable materials respond to consumer demand for environmentally friendly products and are in line with this trend.

  • Technological Advancements in Material Science

A growing number of recyclable materials are becoming available for car interiors owing to the ongoing improvements in material science and recycling technologies that address issues with eco-friendly materials’ performance, durability, and aesthetics.

  • Government regulations and initiatives

Government regulations and initiatives also play a role in promoting the use of recycled materials in South Korea’s automotive industry. For instance, in 2022, The Korean car parts industry is scheduled to receive approximately 14.3 trillion won (US$10.9 billion) in investments by 2023 from both the Korean government and the private sector. To develop Korean expertise in fundamental technologies for future vehicles, boost Korean auto parts exports of goods, and, the government, automakers, and affiliated organizations will offer their fullest support.

Key Opportunity Analysis:

  • Brand Differentiation and Marketing

Creating a strong brand image as a leader in sustainable and recycled materials for automobile interiors can differentiate a company in the market. Several Companies have adopted recycled materials. For instance, Mercedes-Benz used sustainable lightweight materials in the cabin of its newly launched all-electric concept car, the Vision EQXX. The floor mats are composed of recyclable bamboo fiber as well. According to Mercedes, imitation leather has a carbon footprint that is roughly half that of genuine leather. Mercedes-Benz, for example, intends to increase the number of recycled materials produced by upcycling trashed fishing nets and plastic bottles to an average of 40% by 2039.

On November, 2022, LyondellBasell and Audi announced a pioneering partnership to help close the loop on mixed automotive plastic waste. Audi utilizes plastic seatbelt buckle covers produced by LyondellBasell in the Q8 e-tron to enable the procurement of feedstocks from mixed automotive plastic waste. Plastic components from non-repairable client automobiles are removed, shredded, and chemically recycled into pyrolysis oil. The pyrolysis oil is subsequently utilized as a raw material in LyondellBasell’s manufacturing process to create new polymers, therefore replacing virgin fossil feedstocks. A mass balancing technique is used to credit the recycled material to the Audi product.  

  • Increase In Consumer Preferences for Environment-friendly Materials is a Significant Opportunity for The Market

As automobile production increases, so does the exposure of products to consumers. With a growing number of environmentally conscious consumers, there is an opportunity for automakers to cater to this market segment by using recycled materials in interiors, thereby enhancing brand appeal. Incorporating recycled materials aligns with the values of environmentally conscious consumers. This alignment enhances the brand image of auto manufacturers, portraying them as socially responsible and committed to sustainable practices.

The rising awareness and concern for environmental issues have led consumers to prioritize sustainable choices, including environmentally friendly materials in automobile interiors. Several international manufacturers are developing new models in the car industry to attract customers. For example, on September 29, 2020, Jaguar Land Rover and ECONYL® nylon collaborated to make luxurious interiors out of waste and ocean garbage. The next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover automobiles will include floor mats and trims made from ECONYL® fiber, which is made from recycled industrial plastic and fabric scraps from clothing manufacturers. The adoption of recycled materials in automobile interiors can generate positive publicity. Public relations efforts highlighting sustainability initiatives can enhance the overall public perception of the company.

  • Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency

The adoption of a circular economy model, where materials are reused and recycled, is gaining prominence. Companies recognize the economic benefits of resource efficiency, leading to the increased use of recycled materials to minimize raw material consumption. Adopting recycled materials helps minimize the volume of automotive waste generated by utilizing post-consumer or post-industrial materials. Implementing closed-loop systems, where materials are recovered and reintegrated into the manufacturing process, reduces the overall waste generated in the automotive production cycle.

With the introduction of next-generation eco-friendly cars such as electric vehicles and hydrogen-electric vehicles, the Hyundai Motor Group’s eco-friendly materials have developed fast. For example, Hyundai Motor Company’s eco-friendly model IONIQ, boosted the use rate sufficiently for owners to recognize eco-friendly materials at first sight. For the door trim and other interior elements, bioplastic with a higher percentage of wood fiber was employed. Honda, Nissan, and General Motors produce their car bumpers from recycled materials. Furthermore, both Toyota and General Motors use radiator shrouds and air deflectors made from recycled plastic components such as bottle caps. To produce sustainable automobiles, they integrate recycled materials with vehicle components created from plant elements.
