Automotive Upholstery Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Inclination Towards Luxury and Comfort

The main motive of using upholstery in automotive is to provide comfort and a pleasant ambiance of the vehicles’ interiors. Premium cars and mid-level cars use different automotive upholstery material making their vehicles more attractive and comfortable. Based on vehicles model and preference towards upholstery styles, different seat covers are used. 

Thus, increasing inclination towards luxury and comfort is expected to drive the automotive upholstery market during the forecast period.

  • High Demand for Automotive Interior

Comfortable and impressive interior design is an important factor for customers to make purchasing decisions of any vehicle. Vehicle interior designs are more complex than exterior design due to features such as safety systems, tactile responses, and cost considerations. Automotive manufacturers are engaged in developing innovative technologies that would provide versatile interior designs. Also, a higher preference for durable materials such as real leather that provide a stylish look with a longer life span is projected to boost the demand for automotive interior.

Thus, the growing automotive interior is expected to drive the demand for the automotive upholstery market.

Market Restraints:

  • Fluctuating Raw Material Prices

Price fluctuations of oil, uncertain shortage, and supply tightness have significant impacts on manufacturers of raw materials such as thermoplastic polymers, synthetic leather, plastics, among others. Lack of constant supply of raw materials results in increasing raw material prices which, escalates the overall product price. Thus, fluctuating raw material prices is a restraining factor for global market growth during the forecast period.
