Lightweight Materials Market to Reach US$ 50.78 Bn by the End of 2031, TMR Study

WILMINGTON, DE / ACCESSWIRE / February 7, 2023 / The global lightweight materials market is likely to advance at a CAGR of 25.4% between 2021 and 2031. Lightweight materials are usually made of metal composites and alloys and are specifically designed to reduce the weight of aircraft, windmills, and automobiles without impacting the efficiency and strength of the structure. These are made of various product types and grades and are used for manufacturing packaging solutions, medical equipment, lightweight aircraft, and automobiles. Increase in disposable income of people and surge in new product development are likely to boost lightweight materials market growth during the forecast period.

Advent of technological upgrades in products and rise in the number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are anticipated to propel market expansion. Additionally, the rapidly growing automotive sector is anticipated to accelerate market growth during the forecast period. Increase in usage of hybrid materials, aluminum alloys, and other composites of lightweight materials in aircraft building as well as vehicle manufacturing is anticipated to create lucrative business opportunities in the market during the forecast period.

According to TMR report, the global lightweight materials market value stood at US$ 3.36 Bn in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 50.78 Bn by the end of 2031.
