About Automotive Lightweight Materials

Automotive lightweight materials are of lower density than traditional automotive materials, such as iron and steel. The lightweight materials have a wide range of applications in automobiles because they not only help to reduce the weight of the vehicles, but also aid in providing enhanced automotive safety and fuel efficiency. The common lightweight materials used in the market are high-strength steel (HSS), aluminum, magnesium, plastics, carbon fiber, glass fiber, and composites, such as metal and ceramic matrices. These materials are light weight and have high strength that adds to the suitability of these products.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive lightweight materials market to grow at a CAGR of 8.57% during the period 2016-2020.
