Dublin, Oct. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Lightweight Materials for Electric Vehicles Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Product, Application, and Country-Wise Assessment - Analysis and Forecast, 2020-2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global lightweight materials for EV market is expected to witness a CAGR of 26.97% during the forecast period

The environmental standards regarding the carbon dioxide emissions laid down by the governments across various countries have led to an increasing need for decreasing the weight of the vehicle for improving its efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions, thus propelling the demand for lightweight materials.

The global lightweight materials for the EV market is expected to account for a market volume of 10,906.5 kilotons by the end of 2025. The market is expected to witness high growth due to the wide adoption of electric vehicles and the rising need for increasing the range and efficiency of the vehicle.

Impact of COVID-19

The automotive industry, in particular, has borne the brunt of the pandemic, owing to the ongoing lockdown, the decrease in sales, and the impending apprehensions to invest in future ambitious projects. A sharp decline in global automotive trends has been witnessed in the first four months. However, the sales of electric vehicles can pick up pace in China and in various countries of Europe from the second half of 2020, as these countries emerge out of the lockdowns. China also aims to further scale up the reduced incentives to negate the effect of the pandemic.
