Automotive Lightweight Materials Market is estimated to grow at 7.3% CAGR during the forecast period till 2029

The demand for Automotive Lightweight Materials to improve the performance of EVs has risen with the inclusion of passenger cars, luxury cars, and trucks in this category.

PUNE, India , March 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The automotive lightweight materials market is expected to grow at 7.3 % CAGR from 2023 to 2029. It is expected to reach above USD 131.41 Billion by 2029 from USD 74.79 Billion in 2022.



Automotive Lightweight Materials Market Growth in upcoming years

Due to the overall weight reduction benefit, demand for automotive lightweight material is skyrocketing for use in passenger vehicles, particularly electric vehicles (EVS). Additionally, as fuel prices have risen, automakers have been forced to create lighter vehicles. The United States government’s CAFE standards are pushing manufacturers to create lightweight materials to improve vehicle mileage.

Here are some of the lightweight materials that are expected to see growth in the automotive industry:

High-performance automobiles frequently use carbon fiber, a substance that is both incredibly strong and light. Even though it costs more than other materials, its use is anticipated to rise as automakers look for methods to lighten vehicles and boost their fuel economy. Magnesium is another lightweight metal that is gaining popularity in the automotive industry. Although more costly than aluminum, it is both stronger and lighter. Steering wheels, seat supports, and other components frequently contain magnesium. High-strength steel is becoming more popular in the automotive industry because it is stronger and lighter than traditional steel. It is commonly used in body panels, chassis components, and other parts.

Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Regulations- Governments all over the world are enforcing stricter regulations for car emissions and fuel economy. By making cars lighter and more fuel-efficient, the use of lightweight materials can assist automakers in adhering to these rules.

Consumer Demand- Consumer interest in fuel-efficient cars that are also high-performing and secure is growing. By lowering the weight of vehicles without sacrificing efficiency or safety, lightweight materials can assist automakers in meeting these demands.

Cost Savings- While some lightweight materials, like carbon fiber, may cost more than conventional materials, other lightweight materials, like aluminum and high-strength steel, may result in cost savings due to decreased material usage and increased fuel efficiency.

Here are some of the technological advancements in the Automotive Lightweight Materials Market:

Manufacturing processes and material science developments have made it simpler and more efficient to create lightweight materials. As a result, manufacturers are using these materials more frequently.

Advanced Manufacturing Techniques: Lightweight materials can now be produced more easily and affordably thanks to improvements in production technologies like 3D printing. The production of lightweight components with little material waste is possible thanks to 3D printing’s high-precision ability to construct complex geometries.

Nanostructured Materials: The special characteristics of nanostructured materials, like graphene and carbon nanotubes, make them perfect for lightweight uses. These materials can be used to make powerful and long-lasting lightweight components because they are incredibly lightweight and strong.

Composite Materials: In the automotive business, composite materials like carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) are gaining popularity. With these materials, strength can be added where it is required while also reducing weight in order to suit a variety of uses.
