Automotive Fuel Tanks Market and Trend Analysis by Technology, Key Companies and Forecast, 2021-2036

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the global OE fuel tanks sector, major suppliers, top 14 markets, technology trends and market size forecasts.

What are the market dynamics of the automotive fuel tanks market?

The development of the slosh test in the US led to the use of six-layer fuel tanks. In Europe, monolayer fluorinated fuel tanks are still in use because manufacturers can continue using their monolayer machines without investing in new equipment. In Japan, three material, five-layer plastic fuel tanks using nylon as a barrier resin have been used for more than 15 years. Although multi-layered plastic certainly appears to have become the material of choice for automakers, there are still some concerns over its recyclability.

Lower targets for fuel tank evaporative emission are driving more creative solutions in a number of areas, such as process technology, barrier material technology, and fuel tank architecture. Lower fuel tank weight also helps with the overall vehicle fuel economy and improves CO2 exhaust emission. The transition to smaller fuel-efficient vehicles is driving ‘flat fuel tank’ geometry which helps the OEMs to offer larger interiors and cargo space in overall smaller vehicle packages.

What are the key segments of the automotive fuel tanks market?

The automotive fuel tanks market can be segmented into plastic fuel tanks and steel fuel tanks. During the past two decades, we have seen the gradual increasing fitment of plastic fuel tanks in place of steel.
