Report Sample Abstract:

Composites are becoming the material of choice for replacing traditional materials such as steel, aluminum and engineering plastics in European automotive industry. Compared to traditional materials, composites have higher strength-to-weight ratios, chemical and heat impact resistance, offer greater design flexibility. The future of the composite materials in European automotive industry market compared to competing materials looks good. Also, Europe has come up as leading region using advanced high performance carbon-epoxy composites in racing and luxury cars, though at a nascent stage. However, demand for composites dropped significantly during 2008 and expected to drop in 2009 as overall automotive market dipped in 2008 and expected to drop in 2009. According to the report composites materials market is expected to reach $1824.9 million by 2014. Composites consumption in automotive applications such as air intake manifolds, front end carriers, interior headliners, pickup box, switches are expected to grow above 4% CAGR during the in the next 5 years.
