About This Report
This project is an In-Progress study aimed at analyzing composites suppliers and their key markets for supply of this alternative material to automotive manufacturers for their production processes.
In order to comply with government pollution control regulations, vehicle manufacturers consider composites as a suitable material to be used in automotive manufacturing. These composites are considered as the best substitutes to aluminum and steel, reducing the weight of the vehicle without any impact on the strength.
Moreover, the desire among sports vehicle owners to have a car which has the advantage over others in terms of top speed and faster acceleration, pushes the vehicle manufacturers to replace iron body parts with composites to gain the benefit of lesser weight but similar strength.
This report will focus on trends in composite consumption in the automotive sector and the various parts and components where composites are used. We also intend to study in detail the different types of vehicles and brands using composites and the underlying molding techniques.
This project is a “bottoms up” approach based on examining virtually all the composites manufactures with market shares and profiles, as well as the vehicle manufacturers they serve, aggregating the supply and demand sides into an industry-wide picture. Research methods include not only all available public domain resources, but also significant primary interview content with industry participants at trade conventions and through telephone contact. This is an extensive project requiring expert analysis into this industry and its dynamics. SRN’s long-time background in corporate business development and specific vertical industry experience in the global transportation industry provides the knowledge and expertise for this extensive endeavor on the emerging vehicular manufacturing markets in these select countries.
This IN-PROGRESS REPORT is deliverable on a custom order-quote basis to accommodate the needs of the different types of stakeholders in the industry. We have substantial work-in-progress at hand; this project would be initiated for further research based on advance orders. The time frame for delivery is 6 to 8 weeks. Please contact us to initiate a discussion on this project.
