Global Automotive Carbon Thermoplastics Market Drivers and Opportunities:
Growing demand for light weight vehicles - Increase in the use of thermoplastic composites materials in racing and high-performance vehicle components, such as instrumental panel, front end module, door modules, roof components, appearance grade components, and under-hood components, is one of the driving factors driving the thermoplastic composites market in the transportation industry. Lightweight materials such as magnesium, carbon fiber, aluminium/ al composites, titanium, glass fiber, and high strength steel among others are used for manufacturing light weight vehicles. The automotive sector is one of the largest markets for carbon thermoplastics. The automotive industry is continuously looking for innovative materials to help reduce vehicle weight and achieve fuel efficiency and carbon emission targets. Fluctuating fuel prices and distance travelled is increasing, consumers are preferred better miles per gallon (mpg) and often consider gas mileage as a key factor while purchasing a vehicle. Automotive manufacturers, such as Chevrolet, BMW, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, and Lamborghini among others are continually increasing the usage of composites in vehicles, as they aid in reducing the weight of the vehicles. A 10-kilogram weight reduction is estimated to save 1 gram of CO2 per kilometre. According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), reducing the weight of a vehicle by 10% yields a 6-8% rise in fuel economy. According to the data published by a research paper, U.S. light vehicle sales are increased by 1.5% in 2018 compared to 2017 and the total sales is recorded as 1,627,481 units in December 2018. Thus, the reduced weight helps the cars to meet the CAFÉ emission standards (54.5 mpg by 2025) and other fuel norms mandated by environmental agencies thereby increasing demand for lightweight vehicles.
