  • The automotive industry of Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is a key industry sector. The rise in population in the region has increased the demand for automobiles for transportation. Moreover, MEA is an important strategic centre for trade and commerce across the globe, attracting a large pool of foreign investors. The growing automotive industry of some of the countries in the region made them worst performing countries (Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, among others) in terms of GHG emissions. Moreover, in the past few years, the percentage of GHG emissions in the region increased due to lack of government attention. In addition to this, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) holds approximately 30% of the world’s oil reservoir, hence exports large portion of its treasure to other countries. During the past few years, it led to the shortage of the oil and gas natural resources in the region. Owing to this, countries such as the UAE, Algeria, Kuwait and Egypt among others have set certain target values for GHG emissions to be achieved in the coming years. Hence the increasing emission standards in several countries across the region are propelling the growth of automotive composite materials market in MENA. However, high installation cost, high cost of the raw materials and recyclability issues are hampering the market.

    Insights Presented in the Report:

    The Middle East and North Africa automotive composites material market is segmented based on different materials such as Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC), Metal Matrix Composite (MMC), Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) and Hybrid Composite. Currently, PMCs are the most popular composite type among the automakers, as they have high flexibility, high insulation, lower density and lighter weight than other composite material types. In addition, to get a deep dive analysis of PMC, the segment is further segmented across thermosets and thermoplastics. However, low cost and exceptionally good structural and mechanical properties of hybrid composites are making them an alternative to the single fiber composites. Hence hybrid composites are anticipated to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.
    The market is further fragmented across different manufacturing processes, which include hand lay-up, compression molding, injection molding, and resin transfer molding (RTM). Injection molding process dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. On the other hand, RTM will be the fastest growing manufacturing process because of its growing adoption in the auto industry. RTM process is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.1% during the forecast period (2018-2024).
    Based on several application areas in automobiles, Middle East and North Africa, automotive composite materials market is segmented into interior, exterior, chassis, powertrain & under the hood and structural. Among different application areas, exterior segment dominated the market however a gradual increase in the adoption rate of composite materials for vehicle interiors is expected in the coming years.
    Middle East and North Africa automotive composite materials market is further segmented on the basis of different vehicle types. This includes performance cars, passenger cars and other (commercial vehicles and others). Passenger cars held the maximum market share in 2017 and they are expected to prevail during the forecast period.
    To get a better understanding of MENA automotive composite material market, the region has been further segmented by countries, which include the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Kuwait, Egypt, Qatar and rest of MENA. Saudi Arabia held the largest market share in 2017 and the country is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period.
