  • Coverage of reinforced plastics using mostly carbon fibers for strength with a wide array of resins.
  • A look at exterior steel structures such as body panels, roofs, exterior doors, wheels, fenders and other exterior parts.
  • Analyses of the interest in replacing steel with composite resins; the need to reduce the weight of autos to meet the 2025 strict government standard of about 55 miles per gallon.
  • Thermoplastics to be used including ABS, nylon, polyacetals, polypropylene, PVC, polycarbonates, and polyacrylates among others, as well as polyurethanes which are also expected to be used.
  • Evaluation of the market's dynamics, specifically growth drivers, restraints, and opportunities.
