High cost of plastic fuel tanks a challenge in the automotive fuel tanks market
The high cost of plastic fuel tanks is quite likely to be the biggest challenge, restraining widespread adoption of plastic fuel tanks in the automotive fuel tanks market. This is especially relevant in regions such as Latin America, APEJ, and MEA, where customers are typically more price-sensitive than their North American and European counterparts.
For e.g., in Latin America, buyers actually prefer metal fuel tanks as they are cheaper and this far outweighs any benefits that plastic may have in the automotive fuel tanks market, real or perceived.

Electric vehicles a major threat in the automotive fuel tanks market
The 21st century will be dominated by discussions of the impending fuel crisis and alternate sources of fuel in the automotive industry. The two most mentioned subjects of interest are battery operated and electric cars. Both these technological marvels are expected to pose an existential threat to the automotive fuel tanks market as neither requires a fuel tank.
In addition, electric vehicles are more efficient, easy to use, and cost-effective in the long run. Electric vehicles have become very popular in Europe as consumers in European countries seek environmentally friendly vehicles. Consumers have become fairly skeptical of diesel powered vehicles in Europe and this is predicted to negatively impact the global automotive fuel tanks market.
