Automotive Lightweight Materials Market

BEV is expected to be the largest segment in the automotive lightweight material market, by electric and hybrid vehicle, during the forecast period

BEV is projected to be the largest market for automotive lightweight material. A BEV or battery electric vehicle is powered by an electric battery that uses chemical energy stored in the battery. The battery used in a BEV is rechargeable and accounts for about 70% weight of the electric vehicle. OEMs are investing heavily in research and development to increase the efficiency of electric vehicles by reducing the overall vehicle weight. Increasing demand for BEV and increasing focus on vehicle lightweighting will drive the lightweight material demand in this vehicle segment.

Metals are the largest segment of electric vehicle lightweight material market, by material type, during the forecast period

Metals are estimated to hold the largest share in the global market for electric vehicle lightweight material. By material, the market is segmented into metals, composites, plastics, and elastomers. According to MarketsandMarkets analysis, the market for metals is estimated to be the largest by 2027. There are three kinds of metal materials extensively used in vehicle lightweighting. These are High strength steel, aluminum, and Magnesium & Titanium. These materials are lighter and stronger than steel. Hence, these metals are expected to be used in electric vehicles in the near future.

In ICE vehicle type segment, HCV is projected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period

HCV is projected to be the fastest growing market for automotive lightweight materials, by ICE vehicle type. HCVs comprise vehicles such as buses, coaches, and heavy trucks with a vehicle mass of above 7 tons. OEMs such as BMW, Daimler, Dongfeng, Fiat, and Isuzu are rigorously focusing on weight reduction in HCVs due to stringent emission and fuel economy regulations. The use of lightweight material helps reduce the total vehicle weight, which in turn allows the vehicle to carry additional load. Hence, HCV is projected to be the fastest growing segment of the automotive lightweight material market.

Automotive Lightweight Materials Market

Market Dynamics

DRIVERS

Stringent emission and fuel economy regulations

Several governments across the globe have introduced stringent emission and fuel economy regulations for vehicles. These regulations have compelled automotive OEMs to increase the use of lightweight materials such as lightweight metals, composites, and plastics. Advanced lightweight materials help increase the fuel economy of a vehicle while ensuring safety and performance

Growing government initiatives for weight reduction

The automotive industry has seen significant changes in material and manufacturing processes in the past decade to comply with the emission mandates. Rules have compelled automakers to find different alternatives such as lightweight materials, improve efficiency in powertrain, and use of pure battery electric vehicles. Hence, it is easy for lightweight materials to compete in cost when compared to the powertrain efficiency measures and regulations.

RESTRAINTS

High cost (material cost and process cost)

The high cost of materials such as carbon fiber reinforced composites, titanium, and magnesium can hinder the extensive usage of these materials. As raw materials have a high cost, OEMs in developing countries, who depend more on economy passenger cars, prefer to use conventional materials than lightweight materials. However, the use of lightweight materials is expected to increase gradually in the coming years.

The manufacturing cost of automotive components made of advanced lightweight materials is higher than conventional materials. Therefore, high process cost can restrain the growth of the automotive lightweight material market.

Opportunities

Upward trend of vehicle electrification

The introduction of electric vehicles has resulted in a technological revolution in the automotive industry. These vehicles have superior performance than their internal combustion counterparts. Since electric vehicles have low power engines, they use lightweight materials that drive the engine’s pulling capacity. Therefore, the increasing demand for electric vehicles provides an opportunity for the growth of the lightweight material market.

Future potential market in Asia Oceania

In North America and Europe, lightweight materials are used widely in automotive components than normal steel. Although the adoption rate of lightweight materials is high in these regions, the number of units using lightweight materials is more in Asia Oceania due to the large customer base and huge manufacturing facilities.

Challenges

Maintenance of lightweight material

In addition to high cost, lightweight materials require high maintenance. Lightweight materials have great strength and rigidity. However, their weak points are hard to track. It is a challenge in the lightweight materials industry to make materials that are easy to repair and maintain compared to regular stee

The study involves 4 main activities to estimate the current size of the automotive lightweight material market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, such as the automotive lightweight material types, upcoming technologies, and upcoming automotive lightweight materials. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and market analysis with industry experts across value chains through primary research. A mix of bottom-up and top-down approach was employed to estimate the market size for different segments considered under this study.

Secondary Research

The secondary sources referred for this research study include automotive lightweight material organizations such as the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association, The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation, corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements), Factiva, CrunchBase, Bloomberg and trade, business, and automotive associations. Secondary data has been collected and analyzed to arrive at the overall market size, which is further validated by multiple industry experts.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after acquiring an understanding of the automotive lightweight material market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with market experts from both the demand- (users) and supply-side (all-terrain vehicle manufacturers) across 4 major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Oceania, and the Rest of the World. Primary data has been collected through questionnaires, emails, and telephonic interviews. In the canvassing of primaries, we have strived to cover various departments within organizations, such as sales, operations, vehicle planning, production and administration, to provide a holistic viewpoint in our report.

After interacting with industry experts, we also conducted brief sessions with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.

Market Size Estimation

The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate and validate the size of the global automotive lightweight material market. The market size, by volume, of automotive lightweight materials, by material type – Metals, Composites, Plastics & Elastomers, has been derived by identifying the penetration of different materials in each vehicle type in key countries. To determine the market size, in terms of volume, of automotive lightweight materials, the average vehicle weight has been multiplied by country level shares of lightweight material type considered in the study and then further multiplied with the vehicle production numbers to get the country level lightweight material volume. This country level market size, in terms of volume, of lightweight materials for each vehicle type is then multiplied with the country level average OE price (AOP) (weighted average method is used to derive country level prices) of lightweight materials for each material type. This results in the country-level market size, in terms of value. The summation of the country level market gives the regional market and further summation of the regional market provides the global automotive lightweight material market.

While estimating the regional segmentation of the automotive lightweight material market, by material type, the regional shares of automotive lightweight materials have been identified and are applied to the regional market size, in terms of volume, of lightweight materials. To calculate the demand for automotive lightweight materials, the average weight of various vehicle segments at a regional level is found, and this weight is multiplied with the regional lightweight material market size, in terms of volume. The lightweight materials demand is identified in thousand metric tons. The addition of this regional market size, in terms of volume (thousand metric tons), gives the global automotive lightweight material market. 

The top-down approach has been used to estimate the automotive lightweight material market based on application. The average use of lightweight materials in a particular application is found for each vehicle type in the region. The market shares of each application are then multiplied with the regional lightweight material market to derive the volume by application, in terms of thousand metric tons.

Data Triangulation

All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and verified by primary sources. All parameters that are said to affect the markets covered in this research study have been accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data. This data has been consolidated, enhanced with detailed inputs and analysis from MarketsandMarkets, and presented in the report. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides in automotive lightweight material market.
