For more than 30 years, the application of plastics in the automotive field has been increasing. Automotive plasticization is the development direction of modern automotive technology. It is based on three main reasons: energy conservation and environmental protection, second, improving functions, and third, simplifying manufacturing processes and processes. It has become one of the three hot topics in the research and development of the international automotive industry.

With the rapid development of the plastics industry and the automotive industry, foreign automobiles have been initially trialping polymer composite materials such as composite fiber reinforced composite materials (FRP), automotive thermoplastic composite materials and carbon fiber reinforced composite materials. According to the latest developments in international key materials and plastic parts manufacturing technology, there are seven new technological breakthroughs, and the seven technologies are also about to enter the automotive industry. At present, the new materials and its key component technologies, as well as the perfect standard system, have been the focus of recent domestic automotive plasticization.

In 2019, the Chinese economy has already experienced a certain degree of slowdown, but the auto market is still maintaining a steady momentum. Luo Baihui, secretary general of the International Model Association, said that China's light vehicle sales will climb 8-10% in 2012, up from about 3% in the previous year. Last year, China’s total car sales exceeded 18.5 million, making it the world’s largest car market.

Not only that, according to the forecast of the National Import and Export Office of the National Electromechanical Products under the Ministry of Commerce, China’s auto exports are expected to soar by about 50% this year, continuing the good results achieved in 2017. The increase in total car exports is driven by strong demand from developing markets such as Russia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil, which will be roughly the same as last year's growth, reaching approximately 850,000 vehicles.

It is expected that in the near future, automotive plastic parts manufacturing will become an emerging plastics industry, not only expanding the scale of the plastics industry, but also determining the future development trend of the automobile manufacturing industry.
