Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Market to Reach US$ 107.0 Billion by 2027, Driven by the Increasing Demand for Electric Vehicles

September 16, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automotive Lightweight Materials Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global automotive lightweight materials market reached a value of US$ 67.2 Billion in 2021. Automotive lightweight materials are widely utilized across the automotive industry for improving the overall efficiency of the electric, plug-in and hybrid electric vehicles (EVs), among others. The usage of lightweight materials in the structural elements lowers the weight of the vehicle, which further reduces its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions significantly, without compromising on safety. Additionally, these materials can offset the weight of power systems while increasing their all-electric range. As a result, conventionally used metals, including cast iron and traditional steel components are increasingly being replaced by lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber, high-strength steel, polymer composites, and aluminum and magnesium alloys.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Market Trends:

One of the major factors driving the demand for lightweight materials is the rising sales of EVs. Market players are applying design to cost (DTC) strategies by focusing on material use and component integration. In line with this, they are utilizing lightweight materials in the structural parts of second-generation EVs to improve body design. Furthermore, enhanced research and development (R&D) in the automotive industry is also contributing significantly to the market growth. For instance, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a physical sciences laboratory of the United States Department of Commerce, is partnering with automakers and base metal suppliers in the US to develop new lightweight materials based on advanced measurement methods, analysis and standards. Other factors driving the market include the easy availability of recyclable materials and governmental regulations pertaining to environment conservation. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 107.0 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 7.97% during 2022-2027.
