Composite materials are materials composed of two or more fibers and polymers. These materials enhance the efficiency of vehicle by reducing its overall weight. Composite materials reduce emission of greenhouse gases and fuel consumption. Vehicles manufactured using composite materials absorbs huge amount of energy in crash, which in turn, provide more safety to passengers. It plays significant role in providing better driving experience and greater power to engine. The government regulations to keep vehicle under emission limits has increased necessity of composite materials.
Favorable government regulations pertaining to fuel efficiency & emissions and reduced delta factor (process time, cost, & quality) fuels growth of the world composite materials market. However, high cost of composite materials is obstructing the growth of the market. Shifting focus toward electric vehicles and emerging markets in South-East Asia are creating tremendous opportunities for growth.
