Vehicle Wrapping Market to Surpass 26.992 Million Units by 2031: Transparency Market Research

Vehicle Wrapping Market: Introduction

According to the report, in terms of volume, the global vehicle wrapping market is projected to surpass 26.992 million units by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 12.87% during the forecast period. Increasing acceptance of solid color films, such as matte black, blue, matte orange, pink, and green, is anticipated to boost the demand for these films among consumers across the globe. Furthermore, textured finish, such as carbon fiber, wood grain, leather, and brushed metal, is being rapidly adopted in Europe and North America. The need for long-term protection of vehicle paint is also expected to fuel the demand for vehicle wrapping during the forecast period. Vehicle wrapping is gaining popularity in heavy-duty, light-duty, and medium-duty vehicles. Moreover, the low cost of vehicle wrapping, as compared to vehicle paint, is also likely to drive its demand during the forecast period.

Expansion of Global Vehicle Wrapping Market

Heavy vehicles, such as buses and large vans, used for tourism also utilize wrap films for promotions. Currently, the use of automotive wrap film has become fashionable, and people are widely preferring it. The need to protect the vehicle’s original paint for an extended period is further fueling the demand for these films. The option of alternating the original color of the vehicle with different colored wraps, as per consumer choice, is another factor propelling the vehicle wrapping market.

A color wrap change is less expensive than a paint job and can also be removed by a professional, if you ever want to change it. The wrap also lasts an average of five to seven years. A color change wrap would not only keep the manufacturer’s original paint, but it would also retain the resale value. A wrap can be removed with ease to display the original color. All these factors are anticipated to propel the vehicle wrapping market across the globe.

In terms of application, the decorative segment accounted for a notable share of the global vehicle wrapping market in 2020. However, the advertisement segment is expected to gain market share by the end of the forecast period, owing to the adoption of new designs and the increasing trend of personalizing vehicles. The increased usage of wrap films for advertising purposes is projected to boost the demand for vehicle wrap films. Furthermore, rise in use of wrap film for product ads and marketing campaigns is estimated to fuel the demand for the vehicle wrap during the forecast period. Moreover, the vehicle wrap films industry is projected to be fuelled by rise in car racing events and the integration of electric vehicles during the forecast period.

In terms of finishing, the metallic wrap segment dominated the global vehicle wrapping market, in terms of value, in 2020. Metallic finishing provides a premium appearance to the vehicle. It is also stain-free, easy to maintain, and cost-effective. Various metallic wraps are available in the market, from major players such as 3M, and the demand for this type of wrap film is significantly high, which, in turn, contributes to the prominent share held by the segment in the market.

The installation of these automotive wrap films needs those particular concerns where the wrap should be fitted perfectly on the surface of the vehicles. The use of these films in the external surface allows the dirt to form a layer between the vehicle’s surface and the outer wrap. This prevents the public from using the wrap, thereby restraining the vehicle wrapping market.
