Asia region, especially China is estimated to account for the largest share, in terms of production, of the global automotive exterior trim market in 2018. The region comprises some of the fastest developing economies in the world, including China, India, Japan and Korea. This has led to an increase in vehicle production volumes over the years, with OEMs catering not only to the domestic demand but to overseas demand as well.

Passenger cars are expected to constitute the largest share in the global automotive exterior trim market. This can be attributed to the growing need of personal cars and private cab’s in the emerging economies. It has triggered the demand for exterior trim, from passenger car manufacturer side.
