Disruption – EVs, FCVs, flying taxis, and growing demand for fuel efficient vehicles is expected to disrupt the materials market and pave the way for lightweighting materials to grow to US$130 Bn revenue opportunities in the coming years.
According to MarketsandMarkets™ analysis,
- There is ~USD 130 Bn market opportunity within lightweighting market, majority of which is contributed by final processing and others processes of value of composites materials.
- Lightweighting market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7%-8% in the coming 5 years, driven by the increasing demand from various end-use industries including, automotive, wind energy, aerospace & defense, pipe & tank, etc.
- Adjacent end-use industry markets hold a potential of over USD 1400 Bn in lightweighting market.
Currently, businesses have low access to primary intelligence to clarify some unknowns and adjacencies in these opportunity areas –
- Electric vehicle to autonomous car new and old ecosystem is evolving like never before; composites alloys and additive are at the center of this change.
- Wind energy sector is expected to replace automotive in terms of carbon fiber composites consumption owing to growth in offshore wind turbine installation.
- Developments in battery technology and charging infrastructure adoption of EVs is expected to drive the demand of lightweighting material in coming 5 years.
- Aggressive clean energy policies adopted by China and India is paving the way for high growth of composites market in these countries.
- Defence and civil UAVs market is expected to grow multifold in next 10 years, thus making it one of the key markets for lightweighting material.
Some of the growth problems encountered by lightweighting companies are:
Customer prioritization and assessing unmet needs:
- What are the disruptions in our clients’ businesses? How can we support them for our own growth?
- Who are the most potential customers going forward? Should we Aerospace, UAVS, and defense companies or EVs & FCVs?
- What are the key unmet needs of customers? Who are the key stakeholders in different settings? Do vendor selection criteria differ by settings? Which new product features should be added to the existing products?
Where to play:
- Which applications, material, and Industry areas should we focus on? Should it be composites material, aluminum alloys, engineering plastics or any other?
- Which regions should we place our bets on? Should we continue with developed countries or do developing countries offer more growth opportunities?
Building a compelling Right-to-Win (RTW):
- For M&A, which are the right targets for us? Should we target raw material companies, intermediate material, or component manufacturers? Should we enter new markets directly or through partners?
- How can we differentiate from top players? What is their right-to-win vs ours?
