The growing popularity of using composite materials in a lightweight construction has become a megatrend. This is true not just in the automotive industry but also in the aerospace and construction sectors. Composite materials such as carbon and glass fibre reinforced polymers can significantly reduce the weight of the structural components and cut energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The lightweight and flexible features of the composites has made it one of the most promising alternatives for conventional metallic structure.
