The applications of composites within the automotive sector began in motorsport and premium segments primarily for performance objectives. However governmental regulations to meet emissions and fuel efficiency targets are now forcing automotive OEMs to increasingly look at ways to reduce vehicle weight to help reach these tightening emissions regulations.

However, composites are slow to manufacture and much more expensive than traditional steel or aluminium parts to mass produce. Consequently considerable R&D has been invested into developing production techniques to bring down the relatively high cost and slow speed of traditional composites production. As such composites components are now increasingly commonplace on car manufacturer’s vehicles and are inevitably trickling down their vehicle range from premium to medium and even budget segments.
