    Impact of COVID-19 on Automotive Liftgate Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Market Insights

    The liftgates are majorly used in light vehicles especially SUVs, hatchbacks, some MPVs, and some Vans. Over a period of time, the automotive industry has experienced a significant change in liftgate technology in terms of material, style, design, etc. There are different styles of liftgate modules available worldwide featuring different advantages.

    The automotive industry was already under immense pressure due to weakening demand across regions. Even the high-growth markets, such as China and India, were recording a plunge in their demand for automobiles. The market conditions further exacerbated with the outburst of the Pandemic, creating a huge dent in the demand for automobiles. The market for automotive liftgates followed a similar trajectory and recorded a massive decline of -13.4% in 2020.

    The long-term market outlook is high-yielding because it is backed by the industry’s buoyant nature and strong fundamentals. An expected recovery in light vehicle production coupled with an increasing share of SUVs and hatchbacks will bring back the market charm in the years to come. An incessant shift from metal liftgates to lightweight composite liftgates to achieve stringent regulations, such as CAFÉ Standards, further substantiate the market growth in the coming years. Overall, the market for automotive liftgates is estimated to recoup at a decent rate of 3.9% to reach US$ 4.3 Billion in 2026. 

    Segments' Analysis

    Automotive Liftgate Market Share by Vehicle Type

    Based on the vehicle type, the automotive liftgate market is segmented as hatchback, SUV, and Others. Despite taking a nosedive in 2020, SUV is expected to remain the largest and the fastest-growing vehicle type in the market during the forecast period. Increased production of SUVs, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, and high demand for comfort & space in vehicles would continue to drive the segment’s growth over the next five years.

    Automotive Liftgate Market Share by Material Type

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented as metal liftgate and composite liftgate. Metal liftgate is expected to remain the most dominant segment of the market during the forecast period. However, there is a continuous shift from metal to composite liftgates in the wake of several factors in which the most important is government regulations. Stringent regulations imposed by governments of many countries are putting pressure on the automakers to curb the overall vehicle weight to increase fuel efficiency or reduce emissions. Composite liftgates help the industry stakeholders to reduce the overall vehicle weight, ultimately contributing to achieving the targets to some extent.

    Automotive Liftgate Market Share by Process Type

    Based on the process type, the market is segmented as stamping, compression molding, and injection molding. Stamping is expected to remain the most dominant process type in the market during the forecast period, whereas injection and compression molding are likely to be the fastest-growing manufacturing processes during the same period. Injection molding offers many benefits over competing processes, such as low part cycle time, ability to manufacture complex products, recyclability, good surface finish, lightweight, and excellent strength to weight ratio. Nissan Rogue, Peugeot 308, and BMW i3 & i8 are some of the major auto models that are using injection-molded thermoplastic composite liftgates.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, Asia-pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive liftgates during the forecast period. The region is also expected to experience the highest growth during the same period. Increasing automobile production coupled with increasing SUV production share is driving the demand for liftgates in the region. China and Japan are likely to remain the major markets in the region. India is likely to be the new growth engine of the region’s demand for automotive liftgates in the coming five years.

    Europe is expected to remain the second-largest automotive liftgate market in the same period, driven by Germany, France, and Russia. Germany is likely to maintain its lead in the region’s automotive liftgate market in the coming five years. France and Russia are also likely to generate sizeable growth opportunities for the players in the coming years.
