Automotive opportunities abound for plastics

Updated: Jun 22

Make no mistake—the next generation of EVs and HEVs will be plastics-intensive, from drive train protection and thermal management, to totally transformed interiors, a diverse mix of commodity and engineering thermoplastics will play key enabling roles in the rollout of next-generation mobility.


Research by MLT Analytics has identified several key areas were plastic compounds will contribute to next-generation vehicle performance, including battery enclosures, structural components, metal replacement, interior components and thermal management. Thermal management is a particular challenge in ensuring that EVs perform at their peak. Contact us for more information.
