Automotive Lightweight Material Market Insights

The global automotive lightweight material market has witnessed moderate growth at a CAGR of 3.3% over the past half-decade. However, due to the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, automotive production has plummeted in quarter Q2 of FY2020, and has cascaded the demand effect towards automotive light weight material.

The market is set to decline by more than twofold over the short-term forecast period, owing to prolonged COVID-19 effect on the automotive industry. By the 1st quarter of FY2022, demand for automotive lightweight material is set to resurrect, owing to normalization of automotive production.

The automotive lightweight material market size is projected to witness nominal expansion at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period of 2020 to 2030. Speculative demand of material was observed over the 2nd quarter of FY2020. Reduced market prices have attracted suppliers to charge up their inventories to enhance their profits, post resurrection of the market by the beginning of the 3rd quarter. Signs of price uptake of 2% were observed since the beginning of Q3 in FY2020 across regions. Upswing in prices is credited to the kick-start of production in the automotive industry in East Asia, especially China, and Europe.

Automotive Lightweight Material Market Material Insights

Steel and aluminum are two promising materials owing to their extensive utilization in the automotive industry since past half decade. Steel is channeled in two main types - HSS and AHSS & UHSS. Of these two main types of steel, AHSS & UHSS is gaining traction in the market and is growing at a faster pace.

The HSS market share is declining at a fast pace owing to steel manufacturers inclining towards AHSS manufacturing. Positive externalities play a major role in defining the market growth of automotive lightweight material. Cheap, lightweight, and effective automotive lightweight material is sought-after while constructing automotive bodies.

Apart from metals, polymers have had gained traction over the past half-decade, owing to their capability to absorb collision impacts. Apart from this, they can relatively reduce the weight of cars and the cost of manufacturing them. All-in-all, rising demand for advanced lightweight material such as AHSS & UHSS is projected to thrive the automotive lightweight material market by 2030.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“AHSS is set to be a promising material by the mid-term forecast period, owing to extensive inclination of automakers towards making vehicles light in weight”.

COVID-19 Impact on Automotive Lightweight Material Market

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the whole world to a standstill. Business activities have registered a downturn in the form of dwindling sales due to reduced production and demand. The same is true for the automotive lightweight material market. A prominent end use of automotive lightweight material is in automotive application. The ongoing pandemic has led to a decline in all industrial activities, in the wake of disrupted supply chains.

Extended lockdowns across different countries have hit the production of automotive lightweight material for the past months, as key manufacturing units and factories are shut. Even after these lockdowns are lifted, it will take at least a couple of quarters to restore production to normal. Thus, contracting demand from allied industries in the second quarter of 2020 will have a prolonged effect on the growth of the global automotive lightweight material market.
