About Automotive Lightweight Materials Market

Lightweight materials are a mixture of metal-alloys and composites. This concept is used in the automotive industry for building cars and trucks to reduce their weight and enable manufacturers to achieve fuel efficiency and handling. The use of lightweight materials does not affect the strength and proficiency of the vehicle structure. For instance, plastics can reduce the strain on the engine and provide better gas mileage and improved handling.

Moreover, lightweight materials are selected based on their high strength to weight ratio, design flexibility, and high corrosion resistance. The materials efficiency also depends on the consistency of alloys and composites used. These alloys are easy to shape with the assistance of welding, machining, and forming.
