Composites are fibre-reinforced materials; they are more durable than traditional materials, are corrosion resistant, can withstand higher loads and are lighter. Due to these factors composites need to be replaced less often than components made from traditional materials, and in automotive applications they save energy as they are less dense than traditional materials. As a consequence Visiongain has determined that the total revenue from the automotive composites market in 2013 will reach $8.85bn.
The reduced weight of composite compared to traditional, usually steel and aluminium, components is the biggest advantage in the automotive industry. However, more advanced in-vehicle technology and safety features have been making cars heavier for decades. Car makers have generally been able to improve engine efficiency at a faster rate than weight augmentation. Consequently cars have become more fuel efficient despite also becoming heavier. The current rise of oil prices and the resulting high running costs of cars in addition to environmental concerns have, nevertheless, put a stronger focus on efficiency. Higher efficiency results in lower fuel consumption and lower carbon dioxide emissions for comparable performance. Stricter emission regulations are increasing the need for even more advanced and expensive technologies. Lightweighting through the use of advanced composites is one of the key methods automotive manufactures are using to reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency.
