Understand the future of automotive components and materials
Lightweighting is one of the biggest challenges automotive manufacturers face today. Material and manufacturing process selection is critical to achieving lighter components in the car, contributing to the important topic of emission targets adherence by all automakers worldwide. The Materials and Lightweighting domain at IHS Markit aim to understand what material trends are happening today and what will happen in the future of the passenger vehicle market.
The Materials and Lightweighting domain help you:
- Assess the evolution of materials and manufacturing processes used in different vehicle domains (Body-in-White, Chassis, Powertrain, etc.)
- Analyze how different manufacturing groups are approaching the material/process selection task, achieving different weight reduction strategies
- Understand the impact specific materials and processes have on the weight of selected components in different vehicle domains
