How will the automotive composites market progress in the future?

Composite parts and components weigh a lot less than their metallic counterparts; hence, their implementation in the construction of a vehicle leads to weight reduction, which is beneficial as it reduces fuel consumption, and thereby, emissions. These factors are expected to increase the usage of advanced automotive composites by carmakers in the foreseeable future, in order to ensure compliance with stringent emission norms, globally.

Will increase in material procurement and processing of composite material affect the future trajectory of the market?

Yes, with increasing technical complexity and increasing demand for high-quality composite parts, the cost of raw material and manufacturing process of automotive composite parts will remain high in comparison to metal-based parts. Five areas incur major costs from the perspective of automotive composites – fiber, resin, consumables, machining costs, and labor. A slightest increase in these prices directly affects the growth of the automotive composite market.
