I    Global Trends surrounding Automotive CFRP (Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Plastics)

  1. Overview of Automotive CFRP
  • Rising needs for the vehicles to be lighter in weight as stricter values required for fuel efficiency standard and fuel regulations
  • What is the positioning of CFRP when multiple materials have been started to be used.
  1. Stricter environmental regulations
  2. Clearer superiority of CFRP
  1. Trends of Adoption of Automotive CFRP
  • CFRP is adopted in cars of high-price range, adoption of general vehicle types is limited
  • The key to expand the market lies in low-cost and progressive designs of materials
  1. Structure part of car body
  2. Outer/Inner panels (roof, bonnet, trunk lid, fender, etc.)
  3. Others (Propeller shafts)

II   Trends of Technology Development of Automotive CFRP

  1. Carbon Fiber
