Moreover, the customer preference in the type of material used in automotive seating has changed dramatically over the past decade, backed by the rise in advancements in textile technology and the discovery or invention of newer material. The stock material used in cars has seen a decline in preference, with consumers replacing the stock material with nylon, leather, vinyl, or polyester as per their preference and requirement. This preference change is not limited to seat covers, with consumers replacing stock interiors with custom-made material for interiors. The shift in consumer preference can be attributed to the varying options available now, along with their fit and durability. The high-end finish of these materials and their compatibility with other customized interiors aid in customer preference towards customized seat cover, which is anticipated to drive the growth of the global automotive seat cover market during the forecast period.
Additionally, the new developments in the manufacturing process technologies have streamlined the production of seat cover material, making them more cost-efficient and more durable than the stock seat covers provided with the cars. Many patented technologies to produce leathers and other materials are provided by manufacturers that offer their products to car manufacturers and after-markets. Premium quality leather for car manufacturers and the aftersales market has seen a recent demand owing to their more sustainable and low-cost manufacturing processes and the high-end finish that the material provides. The leather alternatives such as polyurethane and neoprene have also found wide applications due to the environmentally sustainable approach in manufacturing and their physical properties that are similar or better than pure leather. With newer material manufacturing processes in development that will decrease costs and improve material quality, the market for automotive seat covers is expected to see growth during the forecast period.
