Composites and Advanced Materials Webinar

Webinar Topic: Opportunities and Challenges in Automotive Composites Market


Automotive manufacturers are the major users of composites in the transportation segment. In the global composites industry, transportation accounts for 21.7% of the total shipment. In the US automotive industry, composites usage has been growing at the rate of 4.6% annually for the last 25 years. Lightweight materials are gaining significant importance in automotive industry to drive fuel efficiency and to minimize carbon footprint. Specific challenge for automotive industry is to meet CAFÉ standards– which mandate an average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The new rules represent a significant opportunity for carbon fiber composites since it has potential to reduce part weight by 60%. The key factor limiting the penetration of carbon fiber is its associated disadvantage of higher cost which would gradually be diluted in the coming years.

Key learning:

  • Composites opportunity in automotive industry during 2013-2018.
  • Major drivers and challenges for composites usage in the automotive industry.
  • Technology developments and parts consolidation.
  • Emerging trends in global automotive market.
