Automotive Frame Lightweight Material Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Construction and Manufacturing | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC672


Advanced material plays an important role in improving the fuel proficiency of new vehicles along with confirming high safety and performance. Light weight automobiles necessitate less energy in speeding up and surging vehicle’s efficacy compared to heavy vehicles and delivers lesser fuel consumption. Substituting cast steel and iron constituents with lightweight materials such as magnesium alloys, aluminum alloys, plastics, thermosetting composites and advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) help to decrease the complete heaviness of automobile's chassis.

Market Dynamics

Growing demand for less polluting vehicles and fuel efficient automobiles, stringent emission regulations are some of the major factors driving growth of this market. However, strength of the material is neglected at the time of manufacturing which can restraint growth of this market. Growth in sales of electric automobiles is expected to boost the market growth in near future. In addition, acceptances of automotive frame lightweight material in different vehicle types are also expected to propel growth of this market.
