The global lightweight automotive materials market is growing at a brisk pace due to a variety of factors. Some of the factors include the pressing need to improve the safety of the vehicles along with improving the fuel economy of the vehicles. This can be achieved by using lightweight materials in the manufacturing of the vehicles and eliminating kind of materials and parts that are heavy in nature. Also, governments around the world are enforcing strict environmental legislations regarding the emission norms of vehicles and more stringent norms are being made mandatory as the levels of air pollution increase and global warming problems become more serious resulting in changing climatic patterns and increase in the frequency of natural disasters. To counter such pressing problems, automobile manufacturers are increasingly shifting to lightweight materials that make the handling of the vehicles easier, increases the safety of the vehicles and reduces the weight of the vehicles, making them more fuel efficient and thereby cutting emissions. However, the global lightweight automotive materials market is restrained by the high costs of such lightweight materials.  

According to the assessment of Persistence Market Research, the global lightweight automotive materials market is forecasted to reach a figure of about US$ 76,200 Mn in 2022 and is poised to exhibit a steady CAGR in the period of assessment.
