Automotive Material Trends - Global Sector Overview and Forecast to 2030 (Q1 2021 Update)

Summary
For some time, the automotive industry has been under pressure to change the way it designs and builds vehicles, due to factors such as the increasing impact of passenger and pedestrian safety requirements and the competitive intensity caused by globalisation and manufacturing in low cost economies. Furthermore, governmental pressure in Europe and North America to reduce CO2 emissions has prompted vehicle makers and their supply base to develop automotive technology to meet those strict emission limits.

Consequently, more vehicles are incorporating components aimed at mass reduction, parts consolidation to reduce assembly costs and more efficient recycling.The vehicle makers’ need to improve overall fuel economy in vehicles has led to the trend toward minimising vehicle weight.

The use of performance materials such as high-strength steel and aluminium is on the rise and heavier traditional materials, such as steel and iron, are being replaced whenever possible.

The report “Automotive Material Trends - Global Sector Overview and Forecast to 2030 (Q1 2021 Update)” provides a comprehensive overview of the global body material trends sector, major suppliers, top 14 markets, technology trends and market size forecasts.
