Research report presented by UnivDatos, Emphasis on Material Type (Polymer Matrix Composites, Metal Matrix Composites, Ceramic Matrix Composites and Hybrid Composites), Manufacturing Process (Hand Layup, Compression Molding, Injection Molding, Resin Transfer Molding) and Geographical analysis (key regions and countries).
As per the research report, Global Automotive Composite Materials Market was valued at US$ 4,681.6 Million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$ 9,037.4 Million by 2025 displaying reasonable CAGR of 9.97% over the forecast period (2019-2025). Composite materials are homogenous mixtures which are prepared by synthetically assembling two materials together. One of these is fibre, a reinforcing material and the other one is a binding material called Matrix. The composite materials have high electrical and corrosion resistance and are stiff and have high strength-to-weight ratios. The use of composite materials among automobiles reduces the overall weight of the vehicle, improves the fuel efficiency, reduces GHG emissions, improves safety, increases crashworthiness and offers a smooth finish with exceptional aerodynamic design. Besides these advantages, composite materials offer other benefits as well, owing to which they have been widely adopted in the auto industry. Further, the growing concerns for GHG emissions by vehicles and the regulatory framework are also propelling the use of composites in the auto industry. Legislative bodies are not only issuing regulations, but also offering certain relaxation and subsidies to the green vehicle owners. In addition, there is a visible increase in the demand of composite materials for electric vehicles. Composite materials are used in EVs to offset the weight increased using batteries. Due to this, the inclination of the auto OEMs toward the use of composite materials in their models has also taken a jump. Subsequently, OEMs are entering certain competitive strategies with the composite material manufacturers and distributors to strengthen their foothold in the industry.
