Overview

Overview

The application of plastics and advanced composites in automotive vehicles has been increasing over decades, with more recent uses being focussed primarily on making vehicles more energy-efficient through lightweight engineering, together with providing more durability and design flexibility at a low cost. In automotive design, although plastics have contributed to a multitude of innovations in safety, performance, and fuel efficiency, the industry requires new research and improvement to meet the needs of next-generation vehicles.

Overview With over 70 per cent of the plastics used in modern vehicles coming from four main polymers: polypropylene, polyurethane, polyamides, and PVC, the role of plastics and composites in the design and manufacturing of automotive vehicles has never been more essential as stringent regulations and changing consumer habits drive demand for more affordable, lightweight, and fuel-efficient vehicles.


WHY A GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON PLASTICS IN AUTOMOTIVE?
The Economic Times Global Conference on Plastics in Automotive will explore the breadth and depth of the role that plastics plays in vehicle development, with a look at how automotive suppliers will need to respond as the industry changes. Change continues to be a theme in the automotive industry. In this environment, plastics systems and parts suppliers must cope with a quickened development pace and the shifting needs of OEMs and consumers. The conference will explore trends, issues and opportunities, as well as the latest innovations, in automotive interiors, body panels, powertrain systems, under-the-hood applications and more.


This conference is unique in that it brings together a large network of automotive leaders from across different departments, yet maintains an intimate, tailored agenda that was designed by the industry for the industry.

Unlike other events, we get to know the industry personally, we drill down on individual challenges, hopes and dreams to ensure this meeting provides a platform to inspire, collaborate and network, so together we can challenge what’s possible.
