A dashboard of a vehicle is a control panel, which is usually located in the front of the driver. The dashboard displays instrumentations and controls for the vehicle. A soft dashboard has three layers. The bottom layer is manufactured using glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic, the middle layer is made from polyurethane foam and the top layer consists of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) blended with acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).

Rise in demand for automation, ergonomic comfort, and focus on weight reduction by car manufacturers is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period. Increase in requirement for comfort and ergonomics of interiors and scratch-resistant dashboard materials is expected to boost the demand for soft dashboard during the forecast period. Furthermore, emergence of top high-end vehicles across the globe is anticipated to create opportunities in the automotive soft dashboard market during the forecast period. Continuous changes in automotive interior, tough competition among OEMs, and high demand for quality interiors from consumers are projected to increase the demand for automotive soft dashboard during the forecast period.
