Lightweight materials are composites and metal alloys comprising aluminum, magnesium, beryllium, titanium, titanium aluminides, engineering plastics, structural ceramics, polymer, and ceramic matrices. They are environment-friendly, help reduce carbon footprints and offer several advantages, such as corrosion and oxidation resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivities, low density, high reflectivity, high ductility, high strength, and cost-efficiency. As a result, they find extensive applications in the aerospace, defense, healthcare, electronics, construction, automotive, and packaging industries across the globe.
Lightweight materials are used to manufacture different parts of vehicles in the automotive sector as they reduce heavy-duty vehicle weight without compromising safety, performance, recyclability, and cost. This, coupled with the burgeoning automotive industry, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, lightweight materials help improve the efficiency and range of hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and electric vehicles as they offset the weight of power systems, such as batteries and electric motors. This, coupled with the rising adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) to reduce harmful air pollution, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the growing employment of lightweight materials in the wind energy sector for manufacturing windmills is positively influencing the market across the globe. Besides this, the increasing application of lightweight materials in the aviation industry to reduce fuel consumption is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors. Apart from this, there is a rise in the use of aluminum alloys in the food and beverage (F&B) industry for producing foils, beverage cans, and cooking and food processing utensils. This, in confluence with the expanding F&B sector, is catalyzing the demand for lightweight materials.
