The global automotive lightweight materials market size reached US$67.2 billion in 2021. Looking ahead, the publisher expects the market to reach US$107.0 billion. by 2027, posting a CAGR of 8.06% in 2021-2027.

Bearing in mind the uncertainties associated with COVID-19, we continuously monitor and assess the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic. This information is included in the report as a major market contributor.

Automotive lightweight materials are mainly used to replace cast iron and conventional steel components in different types of vehicles such as electric, plug-in and hybrid vehicles. They are used in structural elements that allow vehicles to carry advanced safety devices, integrated electronic systems and emission control systems.

The use of lightweight materials in automobiles offsets the weight of their power systems like electric motors and batteries while improving 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 the rapid degradation of the environment, car manufacturers around the world are developing lighter and more functional materials to improve the fuel efficiency of vehicles. Using lightweight materials allows manufacturers to improve vehicle efficiency, as reducing a car’s weight leads to a significant improvement in fuel economy.

Consequently, rising fuel prices are driving demand for lighter vehicles. Apart from this, governments of various countries have also introduced vehicle weight reduction schemes in response to the need for strict environmental regulations. Additionally, there has been increased investment in R&D activities across the industry, with several major players aiming to reduce the cost of these materials and increase their recyclability.
