Global Composites in Automotive Applications Market 2015-2020: Automobile Manufacturers, Regulators And Green Adherents Set For Carbon Dioxide Battle - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Composites in Automotive Applications" report to their offering.

The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the automotive carbon-fiber-composite market that has been recently developed in order to decrease the weight of automobiles to meet upcoming government standards for average miles per gallon.

The current premise is that, by reducing the weight of automobiles, miles per gallon will increase, but achieving this objective is beset with a wide array of technical issues and higher costs.

There have been a wide array of reports on this topic, but recent developments have begun to shed more light on the requisite technologies, costs, companies involved and the probable time span needed for these changes to take place.

This market study also analyzes, among other issues, the role and impact of carbon-fiber-producing companies that produce these materials for automotive composites, the automobile producing companies themselves, changing prices of raw materials, continual upgrading of technologies and shifting government regulations.


- The global market for composites in automotive applications is forecast to increase from 8.1 million pounds in 2014 to 9.1 million pounds in 2015. This market is estimated to reach 13.2 million pounds in 2020 increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% during the next five years, from 2015-2020.

- Composites in exterior applications is the largest segment, projected to grow from nearly 6.0 million pounds in 2015 to 8.3 million pounds billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2015-2020.

- Composites used under-the-hood as a segment is projected to grow from 2.9 million pounds in 2015 to 4.6 million pounds in 2020 at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2015-2020.
