Opportunities for Composites in the North American  Automotive Market 2019-2014, May 2009
Composites are becoming the material of choice for replacing traditional materials such as steel, aluminum and engineering plastics in North American 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 North American automotive industry market compared to competing materials look good. However, demand for composites dropped significantly during 2008 and expected to drop in 2009 as overall automotive market dipped in 2008 and and expected to drop in 2009. According to Lucintel’s new report “Opportunities for Composites in North American Automotive Market 2009–2014: Trends, Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis”, composite materials market to reach $1581 million in 2014. Composites consumption in automotive applications such as air intake manifolds, front end carriers and connectors are forecast to grow at more than 4% CAGR during the next 5 years.

Producers focusing on innovations and cost leadership will win most of the volume growth. Automotive OEMs are looking for new ways to reduce vehicle weight, further increasing fuel economy. By developing new materials to meet the demanding application requirements, composite materials suppliers will gain more market share during the next six years.
