Investigating Automotive Plastics Manufacturing

What challenges has the automotive manufacturing industry faced? What trends are emerging? How can automotive manufacturers best optimize their processes? How did a company, like ZF Friedrichshafen AG, develop a new efficient process? Find out about all that and more in this white paper.


Every since its boom in the early 1900s, automotive manufacturing has continued to prosper into the twenty-first century. Cars, vans, public transport, and heavy goods vehicles are becoming ever more accessible, with commercially ready models and their production processes showing profound growth alongside the emergence of Industry 4.0.

Moreover, plastics components play a significant role in the automotive industry. The use of plastics in automotive part production drives innovation and redefines vehicle designs, efficiency, and functionality. However, the COVID-19 pandemic brought with it numerous challenges for plastics production in the automotive industry.

This white paper will guide you through the recent trends of the automotive industry, outline a few historical insights, discuss the advantages of plastics use in automotive manufacturing, list a few commonly used manufacturing processes within the industry, and navigate the various production-specific and industry wide challenges faced by automotive plastics manufacturers. Additionally, we present an insightful case study on ZF Friedrichshafen AG and how they developed a new efficient process with sensXPERT.
