“The automotive component industry is experiencing a technological revolution,” write BCC  analysts. “Global warming, climate change and air quality issues have combined with the dramatic fluctuation of oil prices to deliver an imperative for motor vehicle manufacturers to introduce radically more fuel-efficient vehicles to the market.”

The Impact of New Fuel Standards

The new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards announced in 2011 set a fleet-wide average mileage target of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. The new CAFE standards will force the auto industry to reduce the average weight of its vehicles significantly. The greatest auto weight reduction will be in the Under-The-Hood segment, as the industry has converted most interiors to lighter plastics. There will also be significant weight reductions in exteriors.
