Material and lightweighting sector round-up – 2019

Corporate developments

Trends such as 3D-printing, lightweight materials for electromobility, and advanced battery materials were some of the most prominent ones in 2019

The year 2019 wasn’t the most cheerful for automotive industry with slowdown in automotive sales felt across most regions in the world. Many estimates put the decline in automotive sales to be somewhere in the region of 3-5% year-on-year in 2019. The softening of China’s market is seen as the major factor behind the slowdown, with the country expected to see high single-digit fall in sales during the full year.
