Automotive: novelties in structural and semi structural applications

The sector is receiving particular attention, given the great potential for development there: on average, vehicles have only a 2-3% content in composite materials. There is ample room for progress, and everyone is putting their efforts into it. Of course, composites are being introduced into structural parts – which is where the most significant weight savings are to be found.
