Automotive Composites Industry Poised to Hit US$ 26.1 Billion by 2033, Fueled by a 12.1% CAGR

The automotive composites industry is to reach a valuation of US$ 8.3 billion in 2023. Future Market Insights reports say that the market is anticipated to expand at a 12.1% CAGR from 2023 to 2033. The Market is anticipated to reach US$ 26.1 billion by the end of 2033.

Manufacturers in the car sector are paying more and more attention to the strict laws that governments are enforcing on carbon emissions. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the transportation industry is responsible for more than 29% of greenhouse gas emissions.

In order to reduce carbon emissions, the US government implemented stringent regulations that facilitated the development of lightweight automobiles. Utilising lightweight cars reduces the vehicle’s maintenance costs by increasing fuel economy and battery life. Because glass fibre composites and carbon fibre composites are high-quality materials with minimal labour and maintenance costs, their use has grown.
