According to the study, gains have also been complemented by steady automobile sales in China and India, two of the most populous countries in the world. Although cost remains a key parameter for buying behavior, emergence of a sizeable carbon-conscious demographic in the region has led to the introduction of lightweight materials. The report opines that these two countries will remain key to future growth of the automotive lightweight material market. In 2018, automotive lightweight material sales were in excess of 17 kilotons in China, and are estimated to record a Y-o-Y growth at over 4.0% in 2019.

“China continues to observe numerous benefits, as the country’s lead in electric vehicles sales remains incontestable. Venturing overseas to offset sales fatigue in the local market is becoming the new area of focus for automotive component manufacturers in China. On the other hand, India is likely to become the nesting place for various automotive component manufacturing companies, as it bodes the world’s youngest population. This further implies India’s robust potential of becoming the fastest growing marketplace for automotive components,” says a lead analyst at Fact.MR.  

The study also takes a closer look at the prevailing regulatory and macroeconomic frameworks and in the key country markets.

Steel Remains the Most Lucrative Automotive Lightweight Material

According to the study, steel remains the most lucrative automotive lightweight material, with sales of over 35 kilotons in 2018. Increasing replacement of cast iron and other heavier components with lighter materials such as high-strength steel (HSS) in automobiles is a key demand determinant of steel in the automotive lightweight material market.

Automotive lightweight materials have witnessed robust application in the engine & mechanical components, backed by their numerous advantages such as energy efficiency, improved performance, and enhanced safety. In addition, exterior & structural segment is likely to emerge as the most lucrative application area for automotive lightweight material. Passenger cars account for the highest volume share in the automotive lightweight material market, with sales estimated in excess of 42 kilotons in 2018.

Hefty cost of raw materials such as titanium, magnesium, and carbon fiber remains a key challenge for manufacturers in the automotive lightweight material market. Additionally, sourcing of metallic raw materials is a cost-intensive procedure. This, coupled with limited availability of these materials in developing nations are expected to constrain growth of the automotive lightweight material market to a certain limit.
