Posted by DenMark on February 1st, 2018

“Global Automotive Lightweight Material Market Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2021”

The global automotive lightweight material market is segmented into material type such as plastic, steel, aluminium, fiberglass, carbon, leather, rubbers, magnesium, high strength steel and others. Further, steel is the most common material used in building cars due to its light weight, high strength, low cost and easy availability. Lightweight materials are the material helps to decrease the weight of the product and reduces the total energy consumption in the vehicle. Lightweight materials support in the attainment of better energy efficiency and contributing to energy independence of the nation.

Global Automotive Lightweight Material Market is expected to register a 13.7% CAGR over the forecast period. Moreover, the global automotive lightweight material market was valued at USD 77.3 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach at remarkable revenue by the end of 2021. The market is poised to display substantial growth during the forecast period owing to increasing production of vehicles and rising concerns regarding excessive consumption of fuels all across the globe.

The North American automotive lightweight material market has the largest market share in the global automotive lightweight material market. With the introduction of corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards applied for all the light-duty vehicles manufactured during 2017-2025, the demand for light weight material is projected to increase exponentially in near future. As a result, the light weight material market in the region is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.6% to reach USD 36.23 Billion in 2021.

Growing Demand for Lightweight Vehicles

Lightweight materials are used in building vehicles to reduce mass of body structures of vehicles in order to improve fuel efficiency of automobiles. Further, increasing fuel consumption and carbon emission are some major factors which are fuelling the demand for fuel efficient vehicles which in turn expected to increase the consumption of lightweight materials in future.  

Favourable government initiatives and programmes

Governments of developed countries are supporting ongoing research to improve the fuel efficiency vehicles. In U.S., around 60% of oil consumption is due to internal combustion engine vehicles running on road. Government’s initiatives to improve the fuel efficiency and reduce emission are expected to increase the demand for automotive lightweight materials over the forecast period.    Although, rapid fluctuations in raw material prices and high cost of some lightweight materials such as carbon fiber are some of the factors that are likely to inhibit the growth of the Automotive Lightweight Material Market in the near future.
