For many years the biggest end-use market for aluminium has been the transportation sector with a major share of it going into car manufacturing.
For the past decades, the aluminium-based automotive product portfolio has broadened continuously and now represents an average of almost 140 kg per car.
The main driver for aluminium lightweight design is the improved fuel consumption, i.e. a reduction of the CO2 emissions during the service phase of the car. At the same time, the reduced vehicle mass enables significant safety improvements as well as better driving performance and higher comfort.
