Stringent Emission and Fuel Economy Regulations for Lightweight Materials to Thrive Market

In the past few decades, the automotive industry is growing at an unprecedented level. For instance, the U.S. has one of the largest automotive markets in the world. Though the COVID impact has put the sector on a lower side, the trend is set to experience colossal growth, owing to strong demand for electric vehicles, creating a lucrative opportunity for the market. Also, the stringent regulations regarding stringent fuel economy and emission are also increasing compelling OEMs to increase the use of lightweight metals. This is owing to reduced fuel consumption as they consume low energy during acceleration.

According to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the total number of commercial vehicles and cars produced in 2020 is around 7.76 million units; where 3.12 million units were produced in the first half of the year 2020 which drives from January to June. Whereas, the time span of the first half of the year 2021 which drives from January to June; the total number of commercial vehicles and cars produced surged to 4.03 million units. Thus, increasing the demand for vehicles further propelling the growth of the market.
