Rising demand of vehicles across the world is anticipated to increase the demand for automotive glove box market. A major short term restraint faced by automotive OEMs is decreasing production of glove box. Automotive component supplier Recital’s production of glove box was hampered due to fire. This forced OEMs such as Volkswagen to stop their production for limited number of days and store their Passat cars until enough glove boxes were available. A major opportunity in automotive glove box market is increasing the use of polycarbonate and other polymer and plastic material in glove box production. Fuel efficiency is inversely proportional to the weight of vehicle. If polycarbonates are used to produce automotive glove box and other interior vehicle components it will reduce vehicle weight and increase fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emission. There is an increasing acceptance of hybrid and electric vehicles across the world. Major automotive manufacturers are producing electric vehicles which is anticipated to increase the demand for automotive glove box market.
