The automotive lightweight material is focused on addressing the need for increasing fuel efficiency and reducing the greenhouse carbon emission. The only way to reduce the emission and increase the efficiency is by reducing the total weight of vehicle by employing lightweight materials. Without compensating on the vehicle rigidity, automakers are identifying materials to replace steel such as composites, aluminum, foams and magnesium. Employing the lightweight material is the most cost efficient method to reduce the vehicle weight. By eliminating 10% of the vehicle weight, approximately 7% efficiency can be increased and reduced 20 kg of carbon emission.

The automotive material market is currently in the growth stage and it is expected to witness high growth in coming years. Companies are actively investing in R&D for identifying perfectly material without compensating the power and strength ratio of the vehicle.

Market Dynamics:
Government regulations on fuel efficiency and emission control is the major driver for automotive lightweight material. Increasing gasoline price and production of the vehicles is the other driver boosting the automotive lightweight material market.

High cost is the single barrier causing hindrance in the growth of light weight material market.
