According to Technavio analysts, the global automotive films market will grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for solar protection films is a major factor driving the market’s growth.

Self-adhesive film systems are used for a variety of windows and glass panels. These films act as a means of providing new functions to the existing window and glass systems. The installation of solar protection films on vehicles can reduce the amount of heat allowed inside while blocking UV rays.

In this report, Technavio highlights the popularity of automotive wrap films as one of the key emerging trends driving the global automotive films market:

Popularity of automotive wrap films

Wrap films on automobiles increase the visibility of advertisements. Thus, high density of light-duty vehicles is likely to drive the global automotive films market during the forecast period.

Automotive wrap films are used in sports cars, non-traditional vehicles (vehicles that cannot be used on public streets, roads, and highways such as three-wheeled motorcycles), and heavy equipment. Customized vehicle wraps yield a high return on investment because of their popularity among the target audience. These automotive wrap films offer unique textures and finishes such as wood grain, brushed metal, and leather. These are largely used in Europe and North America.

“Fleet vehicle wrap advertising is the ideal medium for brand recognition and brand building. Though billboards, print, and broadcast media offer numerous advertising options, they are often cost-intensive. Fleet advertising is expected to gain prominence during the forecast period due to its cost benefits,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on plastics, polymers, and elastomers.
