The Europe automotive lightweight car market size is projected to expand at a robust CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing usage of high strength steel (AHSS) for mass vehicle reduction.

Europe Automotive Lightweight Car Market summary

Automobile lightweight materials have a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, and significant design freedom, making them ideal for use in the manufacturing of automotive systems. Automotive lightweight car makers use plastics, polymer composites, steel, magnesium, and aluminium to meet the evolving requirements of the industry. Mix of alloys and composites, with non-ferrous metals with low density are utilised in the industry. Metal alloys are easy to forge and find useful in numerous applications.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increasing focus on fuel efficiency and stringent regulations by regulatory authorities is anticipated to boost the market growth.
  • Rising fuel economy standards is projected to push the market expansion in the coming years.
  • High usage of carbon fiber composites by automobile manufacturers is expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.
  • Rising application of lightweight car materials in the alternative fuel vehicle industry is expected to spur the market growth during the forecast period.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak led to the closedown of the manufacturing facilities, which in turn, disrupted the automotive industry. However, the relaxation in restrictions is expected to help the market reach pre-COVID level soon.
  • High demand for weight reduction to improve performance and safety of cars is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing R&D investment to reduce the cost of materials is expected to create opportunities for the market players.
