Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Market

Automotive Lightweight Materials Market by Material (Metal, Composite, Rubber, and Plastic), Application, Component (Frame, Engine-Exhaust, Wheel, Door, Hood & Trunk Lid, Seat, Instrument Panel, Bumper-Fender), Vehicle Type – Global Forecast to 2021



he opportunity in the global automotive lightweight materials market was worth US$XX bn in 2016. Analysts estimate the market to swell at a CAGR of XX% between 2017 and 2021 and touch US$XX bn by the end of 2021.The growth in this market is attributed to the increasing demand for fuel efficient and less polluting vehicles owing to stringent emission regulations.This will increase the demand for lightweight automotive materials

The global market for automotive lightweight materials has been rising exponentially over the last few years. The increasing need to improve the safety and fuel economy in automobiles has compelled automakers to shift to lightweight materials, which has reflected greatly on this market. The rising enforcement of stringent rules and regulations regarding emission control has only added to the uptake of lightweight designs from automobile manufacturers.

Plastic, metal, rubber, and composites are the main products available in the global lightweight materials market. Holding a share of more than 60%, metals were the most valued product in this market in 2015 and are expected to remain so over the next few years. The suitability of various metals, such as aluminum, steel, and magnesium in automobiles has emerged as the key factor behind the immense demand for metals in automobile manufacturing.

The demand for steel is higher in automobile manufacturing than other metals, thanks to its innate properties, such as strength, rigidity, durability, and machinability. The innovation in various grades of steel, such as DP, UHSS, and CP to further reduce the weight, is anticipated to fuel its demand from automakers in the near future.
