By End User, the Automotive Segment is projected to be the Largest Segment in the Graphic Film Market
The Automotive segment is projected to be the largest segment in the Graphic Film market during the forecast period. Within the automotive sector, graphic film applications encompass vehicle wraps, cut graphics, and cut deals. Vehicle wraps, in contrast to cut vinyl, consist of expansive sheets of self-adhesive vinyl lacking a predefined shape. These wraps are designed to cover entire panels of the vehicle. The widespread adoption of graphic films or wraps in vehicles is driven from their utility for both protective and promotional purposes, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of vehicles while providing a layer of safeguarding.

  • According to the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, vehicle wraps incur a cost of USD 0.15 per thousand impressions (CPM), making them a significantly more cost-effective advertising option compared to billboards at USD 1.78 per CPM, radios at USD 5.92 per CPM, and prime TV spots at USD 20.54 per CPM. This lower cost of advertisement serves as a key driver for the growing adoption of vehicle wraps, particularly within the automotive sector.
