The global automotive lightweight materials market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

Automotive lightweight materials are primarily used for replacing cast iron and conventional steel components in different types of vehicles such as electric, plug-in and hybrid electric vehicles. They are used in structural elements which enable vehicles to carry advanced safety devices, integrated electronic systems and emission control systems. The usage of lightweight materials in automobiles offsets the weight of their power systems like electric motors and batteries while improving the efficiency and increasing their all-electric range. Some of the most popular lightweight materials used in the automotive industry include high-strength steel, aluminum alloys, polymer composites, carbon fiber, magnesium alloys, etc.

With rapid environmental degradation, automotive companies across the globe are developing lighter and functional materials for improving the fuel efficiency of vehicles. The usage of lightweight materials enables manufacturers to improve vehicle efficiency, as a reduction in the weight of a car leads to significant improvement in fuel economy. Consequently, the increasing fuel prices are driving the demand for lighter vehicles. Other than this, governments of various nations have also introduced vehicle weight reduction plans in response to the need for stringent environmental regulations. Furthermore, there has been a rise in investments in R&D activities across the industry as several major players are aiming to lower the cost of these materials and increase their recyclability. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global automotive lightweight materials market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2021-2026.
