Metal replacement refers to the replacement of heavy metals with their lighter counterparts, usually made of plastics or composites, in order to reduce overall weight, cost and production time. Components exposed to vibration, stress, aggressive fluids and heat can be manufactured using composites and engineering plastics instead of metals to reduce weight. Metals are being replaced in various major end-use industries, such as automotive, construction, healthcare, and packaging.

At present, the global metal replacement market is experiencing many opportunities due to the increasing demand for lightweight materials for use in automobiles and aircraft component manufacturing. Moreover, different metal replacement applications in the automotive, construction, aerospace and defense, healthcare and consumer goods industries is another factor that is expected to propel the market growth in the market. during the forecast period. In addition, the increasing need for cost-effective and efficient vehicles and the increase in the number of techniques for producing lightweight plastics are driving the growth of the market.
