Exploring the development of automotive plastics in 2011 International Rubber and plastic exhibition is the king's road

the three-day 2011 International Rubber and plastic exhibition has come to a successful conclusion. With the growth of China's plastic and rubber industry for nearly 30 years, this Asia's largest plastic and rubber exhibition not only provides an international stage for exhibitors to display leading technologies and innovative application solutions, but also assists buyers to upgrade equipment and strengthen competitiveness. What enterprises get from it is not only the double harvest of public praise and customers, but also the most important thing is to understand the development trend of the market from the rubber and plastic exhibition, which points out the direction for continuous progress and market expansion in the future. As a vigorous new life rising in recent years, automotive plastics have been favored by enterprises at home and abroad. Today, Huicong plastics will take you to understand the development prospects and trends of automotive plastics through this rubber and plastic exhibition

interpret the development trend of automotive plastics in China

driven by the improvement of engineering capacity and the improvement of vehicle performance and weight loss, Chinese automobile manufacturers are increasingly using plastics

automotive plastics have broad prospects for development

patrickferronato, director of automotive business of DuPont high performance polymers division, looks forward to the development trend of China's automotive industry in the use of plastics. He said that DuPont believes that Chinese made cars will soon narrow the gap in the use of engineering polymers in the automotive market, which is more mature in affirming the position of movable beams. He also said that China is likely to lead the world in the development of electric vehicles, which have brought many opportunities to plastics

for the current situation that the amount of engineering plastics used by Chinese cars is generally lower than that of cars produced in Europe and the United States, patrickferronato said that the penetration of plastics in ordinary Chinese cars is relatively low. However, the gap between conventional plastic materials and Europe and the United States may not be so large. We are more interested in engineering polymers, and there is still much room for improvement in this regard. DuPont's Shanghai center has played an important role in the growth of our business in China, helping Chinese enterprises improve technology and constantly update and improve material properties. "I think automotive plastics will be popularized rapidly in the coming years."

at present, most automobile OEMs are used to designing parts with metal, which hinders the development of engineering plastics in China's automobile market. 3. Impact experiment:. The development of automotive plastics needs to persuade them to use polymers to produce first-class parts, and let enterprises know how to use plastics to replace metals for design. The processing and design ability supporting automotive plastics is highly professional. It is for this reason that DuPont high performance polymer Division has built a new automotive technology center

"We must expand the scope of cooperation to the whole value chain, so that the Chinese automotive industry can understand and accept plastic parts, and use such plastic parts in automotive design. In this regard, we mainly refer to Chinese local enterprises. What foreign OEMs need to do is to wait for the supplier base in China to improve and grow. What Chinese local OEMs need more is to master the technical expertise in process. At this stage, they have mastered more or less Some. " Patrickferronato emphasized

the development cycle of plastic parts in China is actually slightly shorter than that in other countries in the world. Because Chinese enterprises have mastered professional technology, coupled with the rapid development of the market, these have prompted enterprises to speed up product development

president of Ford discusses the prospect of automotive plastics in China

as president of Ford Motor Company in Asia Pacific and Africa, joehinrichs has every reason to view the booming Chinese automotive market with great optimism and joy. Speaking at the China Automotive Plastics conference held in Guangzhou, he said that plastics provided a solution

Joe Hinrichs, President of Ford, said, "by 2020, 2billion people in China, India and (Southeast Asia) will be able to afford cars or reach driveable age. But there are not so many gasoline or parking spots for such a large group of drivers."

Hinrich believes that limiting the number of drivers is not the fundamental solution. "How can we tell these people that you can't have the freedom to drive that Westerners already have?" The real solution is to substantially improve the car itself. "Plastics play an important role in all these aspects," Hinrich said

Hinrichs especially introduced a process of injecting bubbles into plastics, and illustrated how to use new materials to reduce vehicle weight without affecting its strength. Plastics can also help automakers save costs, which is very important for emerging markets where consumers have a strong sense of cost. In some application fields, with the help of plastics, automobile manufacturers can produce multiple parts with the same mold

Hinrich said that these advantages are very consistent with the Asian and African markets that Ford wants to strengthen its services. Although Ford currently accounts for only 2.5% of the Chinese auto market, its growth in the Asia Pacific region has been rapid in recent years. In the past ten years, the scale of China's automobile market has doubled nine times. In 2010, Ford's sales in China soared by 40%, in India by 200%, and in Southeast Asia by 136%. Although the overall growth rate of the Chinese market has slowed down, Hinrich pointed out that even if the growth rate is adjusted, China's position as the world's largest and fastest-growing automotive market will remain unchanged

China's new car plastic consumption is only half that of Europe.

BASF, the world's leading chemical company, recently participated in the 2011 International Rubber and plastic exhibition held in Guangzhou, bringing efficient and low-carbon automotive plastic solutions for the development of new energy vehicles in the future

as a professional manufacturer in plastic applications, BASF displayed new technological products such as automotive intake manifolds made of Ultramid engineering plastics at the Guangzhou International Rubber and plastic exhibition. Hou, President of BASF Asia Pacific region, promoted the rapid development of domestic seat belt production enterprises. Yu Zhe said that the plastic consumption of each medium-sized vehicle in Europe has increased from 6% in 1970 to 15% today. With the continuous improvement of plastic performance, plastic will be more widely used in the automotive industry. By 2020, the average plastic consumption of European vehicles will exceed 25%. But in China, the consumption of new car plastic is only half of that in Europe

it is reported that due to its lighter weight, the use of plastics can reduce the consumption of fossil fuels for cars. For example, the weight of cars can be reduced by 100 kg, and 0.4 liters of fuel can be saved every 100 kilometers. In addition, BASF has also developed lithium-ion battery materials for electric vehicles in the future, and has a special environmentally friendly film for batteries that can be used in hybrid vehicles. The company also hopes to reduce the absorption of infrared heat inside the vehicle through coating technology, so as to reduce the use of energy in the vehicle. Houyuzhe said that from 2011 to 2015, BASF will invest 2.3 billion euros in Asia

Chinese automobile manufacturers rapidly expand the application of plastics

the booming Chinese automobile market is ready to rapidly expand the consumption of automotive plastics, and will strive to shorten the gap with mature automobile markets such as Europe and the United States, where automotive plastics have been widely used

for example, the content of engineering plastics in Chinese cars is estimated to be only about 20% of that in European and American cars, but various models currently developed in China show a strong interest in plastics

China's automotive plastics are developing rapidly

plastics are being applied in the automotive field at a rapid speed. In three years, the penetration of plastics in China's brand-new models will be far ahead of other markets in the world

China's automotive market is growing at a high speed. In 2010, the total vehicle sales increased by 30% to more than 18million vehicles, and the interest in polymer applications is increasing. Combined with the two factors, China's engineering plastics market will soon catch up with the U.S. market in terms of scale, but as far as the engineering plastics used in each vehicle are concerned, the U.S. will remain in the lead for a period of time

②. The fixture itself has no fixed structure (for example, the metal wire can be clamped by surrounding method or two flat plates. After 4 or 5 years, the absolute volume of plastic in cars made in China will be comparable to that in the United States. According to industry statistics, China's engineering plastic market is still growing at a rate of about three times faster than GDP.

Bayer materials science company of Germany is also strengthening its ties with Chinese local automobile manufacturers. Bayer announced last month that it will contact its headquarters in China Chery Automobile Co., Ltd. in Wuhu, Anhui Province, set up a joint venture laboratory to study plastic and vehicle weight reduction, including polyurethane, polycarbonate and battery materials

although the current growth rate of China's automobile industry has slowed down compared with the rapid growth of the previous two years, as Chinese automobile manufacturers comprehensively increase the use of polymers, the demand for plastics in the automobile industry may not be affected. In April this year, the sales of China's auto market fell for the first time since January 2009, but some people expect that after the Chinese government's economic stimulus plan pushed the auto market to a growth rate of 30% last year, the market will still maintain a growth rate of 10% this year. Driven by the trend of vigorously developing the electric vehicle industry and introducing more low-cost cars to inland cities in China, it is expected that China's automotive plastic market will show a "fairly fast" growth
