Within the global automotive composites market, sheet molding compound (SMC) and bulk molding compound (BMC) are the major intermediates materials. Within this market, polyester resin is used to make sheet molding compound and bulk molding compound for automotive parts. SMC is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume, mainly because of its greater flexural strength and tensile strength than BMC. SMC also has longer fiber length and higher fiber content components in body and closure panel applications and these qualities will spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

North American is expected to remain the largest market due to growing demand for lightweight and environmentally sustainable composite materials from the automotive industry. Government regulations, such as CAFÉ Standards in the US are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate light-weight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for unsaturated polyester resin in the automotive industry.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period because of rapidly increasing domestic automotive production especially in developing countries such as India and China.
Emerging trends, which has a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry is avoiding the usage of styrene as the major raw material for manufacturing UPR because it is hazardous for health. Polynt, Ashland, AOC,LLC, Aliancys A.G. and New Solar Co.Ltd. are among the major suppliers of UPR in the global automotive composites market.
