The prospects of growth of the global lightweight automotive materials market are positively influenced by the recent increase in the automotive regulatory requirements. Due to the growing menace of rising levels of air pollution, governments all across the world have enacted stringent laws and requirements pertaining to the reduction in the emissions of carbon dioxide from the vehicles. A reference can be made of the Kyoto Protocol that commits the countries that have signed this protocol to restrict the emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Due to such factors, the automotive manufacturers are increasingly turning to use lightweight materials in the vehicles they manufacture. Such kind of lightweight materials reduce the overall weight of the vehicles, thereby improving the fuel efficiency of such vehicles and cutting the emissions of greenhouse gases. However, the high cost of such lightweight materials is hampering the growth of this market.
The global lightweight automotive materials market is slated to touch a value of about US$ 76,200 Mn in the year 2022 and grow at a steady CAGR during the assessment period.
