Global automotive bumpers market: Automotive bumpers increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions

Fuel efficiency and emissions are among the major factors driving technological innovations in vehicles. Vehicle makers have been identifying various avenues like lightweighting to improve the performance of vehicles without increasing emissions. Automotive bumpers made of lightweight materials are expected to decrease the overall weight and improve the performance of vehicles.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive components, “Automotive bumpers are generally made of impact absorbing materials, such as gas-filled cartridges, to absorb minor impacts. This element is supported by an aluminum or steel lateral beam followed by an egg-crate shaped or honeycomb styled plastic piece made of high-density polyethylene, which forms the outer covering of the automotive bumper. Steel and rubber automotive bumpers are being replaced with high-performance plastics, such as polypropylene, polyurethane, and polyvinyl-chloride. The use of these materials largely decreases production costs.”
