The global automotive lightweight materials market was valued at USD 59.77 Billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 13.06% during the forecast period 2016-2021. 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 years considered in this report are;

2015–Base Year
2016-Estimated year
2018 and 2021 as projected year.

Objectives of the Study:

  • To define, describe, and forecast the global automotive lightweight materials market on the basis of material type [Metals (HSS, Aluminum, Magnesium/Titanium), Composite (CFRP, GFRP, NFRP), Plastic (Engineered-PC, ABS, PA, High Performance Plastics-PP,PU) & Rubber (EPDM, SBR, NR)], vehicle type (ICE and electric vehicles), and key  regions (Asia-Oceania, Europe, North America,  RoW)
  • To estimate & forecast the automotive lightweight material market by application (BIW, Chassis & Suspension, Powertrain, Closures, Interiors, & Others)
  • To estimate & forecast the automotive lightweight material market by components (Frame, Wheels, Bumpers and Fenders, Engine and Exhaust Systems, Doors, Hood and Trunk Lid, Seats and Instrument Panel)
  • To estimate and forecast the automotive lightweight material market by electric vehicle type (BEV, HEV, PHEV)
  • To provide detailed information about major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, industry-specific challenges, burning issues)

The research methodology used in the report involves primary and secondary sources such as paid databases, research and company publications with directories (Factiva). In the primary research stage, experts from related industries, lightweight material suppliers, and other stakeholders from the value chain have been interviewed to understand the present situation and future trends in automotive light weighting. The market for automotive lightweight materials is derived by using a bottom-up approach by calculating the average weight of lightweight materials in PC, LCV, and HCV segments for the countries under scope of the study and summing up the countries to derive the market by region and subsequently in the global market.

The automotive lightweight material market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.06% from 2016 to 2021 and reach a market size of USD 110.42 Billion in 2021. The key drivers of the market are the stringent emission and fuel economy regulations, coupled with the targets on weight reduction, by the regulatory authorities. The industry also sees opportunities in the increase in sales of electric vehicles in the developing countries.

Metals is the largest market of the material segment in the automotive lightweight material market, by value. Aluminum is estimated to have the largest market share during the forecast period. OEMs are focused on the application of lightweight materials in all possible vehicle components. Engine downsizing, lightweight metal body, advanced transmission technologies, and the use of exhaust after treatment devices have already been tried by the OEMs and hence, the use of lightweight materials remains the only economical option.

The electric vehicle market is estimated to grow CAGR of 21.49%, by 2021.  The electric vehicles are solely dependent on lighter parts, made of lightweight materials, which increase their range. The best example would be the use of carbon fiber in the BMW i3 and i8 models. Most government also offer benefits on the purchase of electric vehicles, which acts an additional driver for the sale of these vehicles.

The North American region is the fastest growing market for automotive lightweight materials due to the stringent CAFΙ fuel economy regulations that mandate a mileage of 55.4 mpg (fleet average) by 2025. The low interest rate and low gas prices have driven the growth in this region. The LCV segment is the largest user of lightweight materials in the region. Companies like Ford Motor Company (U.S.), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (U.K.), and General Motors Company (U.S.) buy automotive lightweight materials from suppliers such as Owens Corning (U.S.), Novelis AG (Switzerland) and Alcoa Inc. (U.S.).

Automotive Lightweight Materials Market

The key factor restraining the growth of automotive lightweight material market is the high cost of raw materials such as carbon fiber, titanium and magnesium. Hence, OEMs from the developing countries which depend more on economical passenger cars, use conventional materials like plastics and high strength steel when compared to premium materials like Titanium and Magnesium.  And the other factor is the limited availability of raw materials especially titanium in the developing countries, as it is obtained from the earth crust. Some of the dominant players are BASF SE (Germany), ThyssenKrupp AG (Germany), Covestro AG (Germany), and ArcelorMittal (Luxembourg).
