Interior Systems Lightweighting

Publication Date: 22-May-2018

The global automotive market is moving towards improved and more interactive user experience along with increased safety and NVH regulation requirements. As a result, more and more features are being added to the interior component systems to give enhanced user comfort and safety.

While this does mean fancier features making their way to mid and mass- segment vehicles with time it also forces premium cars to put new, more comfortable and plushness features in their cars. All this means added weight in the interiors component areas!! No wonder then auto OEMs as well as supplier are putting in a lot of effort towards lightweighting to counter the effect of added weights on fuel efficiency and vehicle performance. Also, the materials should have similar or even better user feel so that experience should not go south. Hence, the industry needs wholesome new innovations instead of incremental weight reductions if the interior component area must balance its feature weight addition with total component weight. A reduction in the total component area weight can only be achieved thereafter.

About this report

This report tracks and details lightweighting efforts across the interiors component areas like seating subsystem, airbags , instrument panel and cross car beams and NVH components. The focus is on understanding on how lightweighting in interiors is helping compensate for features addition weight and balancing out over all vehicle weight for higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions.

The report analyzes how addition of features in the interiors component areas has been critical for improved user experience driven by customer requirements and market sentiments. All this means addition of weights to the system. Highly focusses light weighting efforts are therefore required to keep the overall weight in check.

This report will help understand the innovative ways as well as design developments required to reduce weight in interiors wherever possible without affecting the look and feel. It will further help audience appreciate the enormous efforts being put in by OEMs and Vendors alike apart from detailing in-depth methods of light weighting for each of the component subsystems in the interiors
