Germany Automotive Composites Market key takeaways

The automotive composites industry is expected to benefit Germany as it strives to reduce its energy use. For decades, the automotive industry has prioritized vehicle weight owing to the direct impact on driving dynamics and fuel consumption. High cost of potential lightweight solutions and consumers' limited willingness to pay for weight reduction in automobiles, has limited the usage of expensive lightweight materials.

The importance of lightweight materials has increased over the time as government state bodies around the world implement tough emission rules and even aim to establish high emissions standards in the coming years. Fibers account for 50% of the volume in a typical automobile while adding only 10% to the weight.

According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), lowering vehicle weight by 10% results in a 6-8% boost in fuel economy. This have encouraged auto makers to use lightweight and fuel-efficient materials, such as carbon fiber and glass fiber composites. The use of glass fiber composites helps to reduce vehicle weight by 25%. By 2021, EU emission laws require a decrease of 95 g/km of CO2, with another 15% reduction by 2025 and a further 30% decrease by 2030.
Manufacturers are seeking to make low-cost items as natural resources are depleting at a high-rate all around the world. Composite parts aid organizations by lowering raw material requirements, reducing energy use, and enhancing price flexibility. It also contributes to long-term sustainability. Stringent regulations for limiting emissions have persuaded manufacturers to lower vehicle's weight and combustion.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increased government efforts and assistance is expected to propel the market growth.
  • Growing demand for lightweight materials is driving the growth of the market.
  • Rising investment in the R&D activities for the development of advanced composite fiber can create enormous opportunities for the market participants.

Germany Automotive Composites Market Segment Insights:

Thermoset polymer segment to account a large market share

Based on material types, the German automotive composites market is segregated into thermoset polymer, thermoplastic polymer, carbon fiber, glass fiber and others. Thermoset composites (TMCs) have been widely used in the production of racing cars and luxury sports cars. The technological advancements are expected to help the material cost to fall by 15% to 30%, and the manufacturing cost to reduce by 15% to 20%. Thermoset polymers are cured into a solid state and cannot be returned to their uncured state. Thermoset matrix composites are strong and have a high fatigue strength. They are extremely brittle and have a low impact toughness.

TMCs are thermoplastic composites that evolved from structural polymer composites. As this polymer uses a thermoplastic matrix, these materials are not chemically unstable. TMCs soften and can be remolded without degradation. They solidify into the finished shape as they cool.

Germany Automotive Composites Market material types

Hand layup segment is estimated to expand at a high CAGR

On the basis of production types, the Germany automotive composites market is segregated into hand layup, resin transfer molding, vacuum infusion processing, injection molding, and compression molding. The hand layup design method involves manually laying down individual layers or plies of a cement replacement known as prepreg. This is made up of millions of threads that have been glued together and bundled into tows before being weaved or structured into a single unidirectional ply.

Passenger vehicles segment is anticipated to account a major market share

In terms of End-users, the market is segregated into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicles segment is expected to hold a large market share owing to increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient passenger vehicles, as well as the emerging trend of electric cars. Furthermore, increasing awareness of strict government emission control regulations is driving the market segment.
