The global sheet molding compound (SMC) market size was USD 3.42 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period, according to the latest report by Reports and Data.

Automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) use sheet molding compounds to reduce weight and fuel consumption. Sheet molding compound is lighter and stronger than aluminum sheet. Automakers use SMC compounds to protect against dents, dings and rust compared to traditional steel decks. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), a total of 79.1 million cars were produced worldwide in 2021. This represents an increase of 1.3% compared to 2020. We source sheet molding compounds for manufacturing battery cases for electric vehicles (EVs). In addition, thermosetting molding compounds are the main materials for railway and tram interiors. These factors are driving the growth of the sheet molding compounds market significantly. In addition, several major car companies are focusing on using sustainable materials and using bio-based composites to create concept cars. For example, Ford Motors and John Deer worked together to create the Gator UTV concept. Sustainable roofing components are made of bio-based sheet molding compounds. Innovations in these products are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
