Automotive Plastic Bumper Market Revenue is expected to Surpass US$ 13 Bn by 2022

About Automative Plastic Bumpers Market

Apart from making the cars look better, bumpers play an instrumental role in minimizing the impact of accidents. Car manufacturers prefer automotive bumpers made from plastic and polymer materials due to their light weight, rigidity and compatibility. While manufacturing plastic bumpers, OEMs are aiming at rendering more sturdiness through the use of composite or hybrid materials such as HDPE. While traditional metal bumpers are tougher than their plastic counterparts, vehicle owners are likely to incur high costs for repairing metal bumpers upon head-on or rear-end collisions. And, since the global automotive industry reaps billions of dollars through customization needs of car owners, automotive plastic bumpers are likely to remain in vogue in the future.
