Bharatbook added a new report on "Lightweight Materials in Transportation " which gives the in-depth analysis and forecast on Lightweight Materials in Transportation


The objectives of the report include: identifying the lightweight materials with the greatest commercial potential in transportation applications over the next 5 years (2010 to 2015), estimating the potential global markets for these technologies, analyzing the technical, commercial, and other prerequisites of success in these markets.


The total global consumption of lightweight materials used in transportation equipment was 46.7 million tons/$95.5 billion in 2010. This market is expected to reach 67.7 million tons/$125.3 billion by 2015, increasing at a compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) of 7.7% in tonnage terms and 5.6% in value terms between 2010 and 2015.

Motor vehicles, particularly passenger cars and light trucks, make up by far the largest end-user segment. Global consumption in this sector was 164 million tons in 2010 and is expected to increase at a 2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach nearly 182 million tons in 2015.

Railway equipment’s share of the total materials tonnage is projected to rise from 1.4% to 1.5%. Railway locomotives and rolling stock materials consumption in 2010 was 2.6 million tons. This sector is expected to increase at a 2.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach 3 million tons by 2015.(


The report is intended especially for manufacturers and users of lightweight materials in the transportation equipment industry. Although the report is structured around specific technologies, it is largely nontechnical in nature and concerned primarily with markets, pricing, competition, and other marketing-related issues.

The report includes the following major elements:

Executive summary.
Lightweight materials that are in commercial use or under development for transportation applications.
Lightweight materials and applications with the greatest commercial potential through 2015.
Global market trends by type of material and application, 2009 to 2015.
