Automotive Lightweight Material Market Introduction and Overview 

According to SPER Market Research, the Global Automotive Lightweight Material Market is estimated to reach USD 168.19 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 7.9%.

The report includes an in-depth analysis of the Global Automotive Lightweight Material Market, including market size and trends, product mix, applications, and supplier analysis. Automotive lightweight materials are specific materials used in the construction of automobiles to minimise total weight while preserving or improving performance. High-strength steel, magnesium, aluminium, and composite materials are among them. They are extensively utilised in the body constructions, suspensions, braking systems, interiors, wheels, and tyres of automobiles. Automotive lightweight materials contribute to increased cargo capacity, enhanced braking performance, lower carbon dioxide emissions, and improved fuel efficiency. They also provide a high strength-to-weight ratio, increase the longevity of the vehicle, provide designers more creative freedom, and lessen the strain on other vehicle components.

  • In March 2023: To design and construct complex metal and hybrid structures for body-in-white and chassis, ArcelorMittal and KIRCHHOFF Automotive GmbH partnered and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). ArcelorMittal hopes to break into the market for lightweight vehicle materials with this venture.
  • In October 2022: A polypropylene (PP) compound created by LyondellBasell can lower a vehicle's weight by 10 kg.
  • In June 2021: Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic polymer (CFRTP), a novel composite with a strong structure and low weight, was created by Covestro AG.
Automotive Lightweight Material Market
Market Opportunities and Challenges
The trend of vehicle electrification and entering into agreements and contracts with automotive OEMs are expected to present market participants with profitable growth opportunities. Sales in the industry have expanded as a result of investments made in research and development, as key firms aim to lower the cost of these materials while enhancing their recyclability. Growing consumer demand for products that lower vehicle emissions and the total carbon footprint is being facilitated by the increased focus on sustainability. The industry is expanding due in part to the growing use of lightweight materials by automakers to distinguish their goods and obtain a competitive advantage. Aside from this, another element driving growth is the extensive use of products to improve car safety features. 

Furthermore, the industry is expanding because of recent improvements in manufacturing processes that have made it simpler and more affordable to include lightweight materials into mass-produced automobiles. In addition, the general public's growing understanding of the advantages of products in advancing sustainability is supporting market expansion. The market's expansion is, however, constrained by the high cost of materials as well as a decline in automobile production and sales. Materials that are lightweight come at an excessively high cost. Certain lightweight materials, such carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) and glass fibre reinforced plastics (GFRP), are more costly than conventional materials like steel and aluminium.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Automotive Lightweight Material Market
The global automotive lightweight materials market has faced a significant downturn amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Reduced production and demand, disrupted supply chains, and extended lockdowns have led to a decline in industrial activities, affecting the manufacturing of automotive lightweight materials. The closure of key production units has further hampered the industry. Despite the eventual lifting of lockdowns, the recovery of normal production is expected to take several quarters. The decreased demand in the second quarter of 2020 is anticipated to have a lasting impact on the long-term growth of the global automotive lightweight material market.
