Lightweight materials are gaining significant importance in automotive industry to drive fuel efficiency and to minimize carbon footprint.
Online PR News – 02-December-2013 – Irving/Texas – Lightweight materials are gaining significant importance in automotive industry to drive fuel efficiency and to minimize carbon footprint. Specific challenge for automotive industry is to meet CAFÉ standards– which mandate an average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The new rules represent a significant opportunity for carbon fiber composites since it has potential to reduce part weight by 60%. The key factor limiting the penetration of carbon fiber is its associated disadvantage of higher cost which would gradually be diluted in the coming years.
To discuss the opportunity and challenges of automotive industry for lightweight materials, Lucintel has organized a FREE webinar titled "Opportunities and Challenges in Automotive Composites Market”on Date: December 12, 2013” Time: 11 AM EST(New York Time).” This webinar will be delivered by Dr. Sanjay Mazumdar, who is CEO of Lucintel and author of book “Composites Manufacturing”. He worked for General Motors in the past in ultra-light weight product development project and has 2 records of innovations from GM. With more than 15 years of consulting and market research experience, Dr. Sanjay Mazumdar has led Lucintel in diverse projects such as strategic growth consulting, merger and acquisitions, due diligence, value chain assessments, and opportunity analysis.
