Rising Demand for Polycarbonate
The demand for polycarbonate is growing over the forecast period, owing to the properties, such as amorphous, ductile and transparent polymer, as well as UV resistance and chemical resistance, which makes it suitable for a variety of applications. Polycarbonate is used in automotive sector for tail, back-up, and fog lights, along with aesthetically appealing components. Hence, the growing demand for polycarbonate is driving the demand for lightweight materials during the forecast period.
Increasing Demand from Automotive Industry
Automotive is expected to be the largest market for lightweight materials due to the growing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry, in order to provide increased efficiency and design flexibility. Lightweight materials offer manufacturers the advantages of design flexibility and comparable strength of steel, which help in reducing the overall weight and controlling greenhouse gasses emissions. Furthermore, factors, such as corrosion resistance, high strength, stiffness and aesthetic appearance properties, are expected to positively influence the demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry. Hence, the lightweight materials market is expected to grow over the forecast period.
North America to Dominate the Market
North America accounted for the largest market for lightweight materials during the forecast period. North America is witnessing a huge demand for lightweight automobiles, driven by the growing consumer preference for high-quality, fuel-efficient automobiles. Therefore, the utilization of lightweight materials for manufacturing automobiles is rapidly increasing in the region. In addition with this, the growing aerospace industry in the region is also boosting the demand for lightweight materials in North America. Hence, the lightweight materials market is expected to grow at a high rate in the region during the forecast period.
