Several stringent regulations and rules passed by the governments of the nations in the region have been aiming to reduce pollution as well as dependence on non-renewable energy. This has been creating an inclination toward the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles. The Netherlands and Norway are two countries that have passed resolutions to restrict the use of vehicles that primarily utilize fossil fuel, with an aim to eliminate fossil fuel powered automobiles by 2025.

Germany is also keeping abreast of the trend and has been planning to cease the sale of such vehicles by 2030. On the other hand, several regulations are being executed to encourage deployment of electric and hybrid vehicles, promoting the Europe automotive lightweight materials market forecast.

Even though the global outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the market, the spiraling popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles has been supporting market growth. Germany has been a trailblazer in embracing electric vehicles, with Norway, UK, Sweden, and France following suit. During the first quarter of 2017, Norway accounted for a staggering 30% of the total electric vehicle sale, with Iceland and Sweden close behind. The sustainability promised by the utilization of electric vehicles has been an accelerator for the automotive lightweight materials market in Europe.

Composites, plastics, and metals & alloys are the key segments of the Europe automotive lightweight materials market based on type of material used. The composites segment is set to rise exponentially at a 7.5% CAGR between 2020 and 2026.

The progress of the composites segment is triggered by the increasing preference for carbon and glass fibers that are being integrated with molten plastics for attaining desired degree of strength. The shear strength, heat and fatigue resistance, rigidity, and flex of this material are fostering the advancement of the segment, thereby pushing the Europe automotive lightweight materials industry.
