Market Dynamics


Based on the information circulated by the US Department of Energy, the use of lightweight casting materials like magnesium and aluminum alloy can help to reduce the body & chassis weight up that accounts up to 50%. Hence, to meet the stringent emission and fuel efficiency targets that have been laid down by the European Union (EU) alongside the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the use of lightweight materials (Al, Mg, Zn & others) has been on a great increase in the automotive industry in the recent years. Multiple powertrains along with the body structure-related components that are proceeded and manufactured using these materials follow the recommended casting process. Additionally, the rise in vehicle production, coupled with the expanding and growing demand for both the mid and premium segment vehicles alongside the lack of alternative manufacturing processes, are driving the growth of this market during the forecast period.
