Metal bumpers were extremely popular in the past as they are very sturdy and durable. However, automobile manufacturers currently prefer using plastic bumpers as they can be used to increase the aesthetic appeal of an automobile. Also, plastic bumpers have an additional structure embedded within them. This structure contains foam energy absorbers which facilitate better protection for the automobile. It is expected that these features will increase the use of plastic bumpers significantly in the coming years.”

According to the report, the main factor driving the use of bumpers across all geographies is the fact that they provide improved safety for the driver and passengers. Bumpers help in minimizing the impact of an accident and thereby improve the safety of occupants. Further, the report states that the major challenge faced by the market is the inefficiency of bumpers.
