Automotive Textiles Preparing for total transformation examines in detail the current global structure of the industry, with profiles of more than 80 of the most influential Tier 1 and Tier 2 players, and explains where the growth will be in the next 25 years, and why.

Written by Adrian Wilson, this in-depth report with around 340 pages and more than 130 tables:

  • examines the global automotive industry
  • defines automotive fabrics and textiles
  • identifies key areas of application
  • contains profiles of more than 90 key users and producers of automotive textiles

The value of textile materials going into the 91.5m cars and light vehicles manufactured globally in 2018 was more than US$70bn and textile content continues to increase as manufacturers seek further means of lightweighting to reduce emissions and improve fuel consumption.

This new report breaks down the application of these materials into seven key categories:

carpet, interior trim and headliners

passive safety (airbags and seatbelts)

insulation, NVH materials and exterior textile parts

tyre cord, belts, tubes and tapes

seating

textile reinforcements in composite parts

filtration (cabin and engine)

As a result of higher demand for increased comfort and improved safety, the use of textile materials has increased from 20 kg in a mid-size car in 2000 to around 35 kg today, most notably from the industry-wide adoption of textile and composite underbodies as replacements for metal, but with other successful substitutions too.

In the drive towards lowering weight for reducing both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, many current developments are including new uses for fabrics and other fibre-based materials.

There have been tremendous changes to the global structure of the automotive textiles industry since the last edition of this report was published in 2016.

Over the past three years there has been major consolidation among manufacturers of both fabrics and finished components for automotive interiors, not least among the Tier 1 suppliers to the OEMs.

More disruptive change is likely with the introduction of autonomous driving, electric vehicles and car-sharing in urban cities, while end-of-life recycling, sustainability and the need for lightweight materials will increasingly affect suppliers’ strategies.
