Vehicle Lightweighting: Repairing and Recycling Issues Constrain Industry Growth

Published on : Oct 14, 2019

Vehicle manufacturers on a global scale are turning their attention towards low weight materials for the auto components. Suppliers are increasingly pushing to develop novel solutions which are created to not only meet the ever changing consumer preferences but also towards helping original equipment manufacturers to easily comply with strict auto regulations.

The continuing demand for fuel efficiency improvements in vehicles, with an objective of reducing operational costs and rate of fuel consumption are the primary factors that account for the adoption of new materials and designs that help in lightweighting of automobiles.

Plastics account for approximately half of a vehicles volume in recent times owing to great weight to strength ratios, and preference for ecofriendly vehicles. On the other hand, the high costs for some common automobile composites are expected to hinder adoption for the foreseeable future.

These insights are derived from the intelligence report, titled, “Vehicle Lightweighting - Thematic Research” which has been added recently to the Market Research Hub’s (MRH) ever-expanding repository.

In addition, novel materials such as carbon fiber do not allow for repairs in case of accidents, and these materials are also difficult to recycle. Consequently, such lightweight materials are seldom used in the mass produced medium and low end automobiles. In addition, the limitations of existing manufacturing technologies and a shortage of workforce with appropriate skills accounts for a greater manufacturing cycle, and stops investments from original equipment manufacturers.
