Automotive lightweight materials are prominently used in automotive industry to boost their speed and fuel efficiency by reducing their weight. These lightweight materials are an appropriate replacement for heavy generic materials that were previously used to build the outer frame of vehicles owing to the advantages that include improved handling, enhanced strength, less material consumption, and low corrosion rate. Carbon fiber is one those lightweight materials that is extensively used by automobile manufacturers worldwide, as it notably reduces the weight of the vehicle while preserving the strength.

Growth Factors

Shifting trend towards new powertrain technologies coupled with higher emphasis on fuel economy standards are the key forces that drives the adoption of lightweight materials over the analysis period. The product demand is positively impacted by the increasing inclination towards battery-powered electric vehicles, as they carry an additional weight due to the components that include electric motors and batteries, and consequently require lightweight materials to improve the vehicle efficiency. Reduced weight provides multiple benefits that include improved vehicle performance & handling along with controlled vibration & noise.

However, high cost of lightweight materials, limited infrastructure availability, and supply chain volatility may hinder the growth of automotive lightweight materials market over the study timeframe.
