Additionally, growing carbon emission is also set to influence the focus on lightweight vehicles. It is estimated that reducing the weight of vehicles by 10% could lead to fuel economy improvement by about 6% to 8%. Hence, further replacing cast iron and steel with carbon fiber prepreg reduce the body and chassis weight of a vehicle by up to 50%, which is expected to lower the fuel consumption of the vehicle. Hence, the market demand for carbon fiber prepreg is surging. Moreover, to control the development and sale of passenger cars with lower vehicle masses and, subsequently, lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the US, Europe, and other nations and regions have enacted strict laws. Therefore, owing to this the market revenue is poised to grow.
