Advanced high-strength steels, also known as AHSS, are the complex materials produced from heating and cooling processes. The demand of new steel is witnessed increasingly across the world owing to its ductility and formability. In addition, replacing cast iron and conventional steel components with AHSS directly reduces chassis by up to 50%, and thus minimizes fuel consumption of the vehicle. Thus, the adoption of lightweight steel facilitates the incorporation of additional advanced emission control system, safety devices, and integrated electronic systems without hampering the overall vehicle weight. This further supplements the growth of the global advanced high-strength steel market.
The deployment of AHSS in the automobile industry experiences significant growth. The continuous adoption of the new technologies and grades is expected to shape the automotive sector by providing lighter vehicles and meeting fuel efficiency standards. In addition, it facilitates enhanced performance of the vehicle and superior strength that is achieved with lighter and thinner materials. Implementation of stringent government regulations to reduce the emission of CO2 drives the growth of the advanced high-strength steel market in the automobile industry. Carmakers replace conventional steels with new grades of AHSS and offer lighter body designs with an aim to reduce GHG emissions and improve fuel economy. The body in white (BIW) structure saves around 25% of mass and 9% of total vehicle weight.
The demand for lightweight components, growth in automotive industry, and the need to reduce CO2 emission levels are anticipated to drive the growth of the advanced high-strength steel market during the forecast period. In addition, the growth in shipbuilding industry and increase in urbanization and industrialization, particularly in the developing economies is projected to create lucrative opportunities for AHSS manufacturers to provide their efficient designs to the shipbuilding manufacturers.
Increase in passenger traffic accounted for delivery of around 1,400 airplanes in 2015; this number increased to around 2,400 airplanes in 2016. Around 39,620 new airplanes are estimated to be delivered globally by 2035. AHSS is used in the aerospace industry in the production of variety of complex components and tight tolerance parts. Thus, the growth in aerospace industry is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the aircraft makers.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) formulated a national program for greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy standards. The program aims to minimize the GHG emissions through improved fuel economy. In addition, it is expected to cut around six billion metric tons of GHG for the vehicles sold in between 2012 and 2025, thereby saving more than $1.5 trillion in fuel costs. The increased consciousness to reduce CO2 and GHG emission levels and stringent government regulations drives the growth of the global advanced high-strength steel market.
