Lightweight materials are materials which weigh less whilst possessing the same strength as that of heavy materials. Some of the lightweight materials include aluminum, high strength steel, carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP), plastics, magnesium, titanium, and others. Lightweight materials offer various unique properties such as resistance to corrosion, heat, & temperature, high electrical and thermal conductivities, low density, high ductility & strength, lighter weight, increased fuel economy, reduction in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, and longer service life thereby, reducing the cost of maintenance. These properties are not present in other conventional materials such as steel, copper, nickel, and iron.

The lightweight materials market is estimated to reach USD242.78 billion by 2023. Increasing usage of lightweight materials in end-use industries, superior properties of lightweight materials over conventional materials, and stringent regulations are some of the major factors which has contributed to the overall market growth.
High production cost associated with lightweight materials and uncertainty in production tax credit are two of the major factors hampering the growth of lightweight materials. However, tremendous potential for growth end-use applications, huge investment by government and federal agencies, and growing demand from emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil is expected to create major opportunities in the lightweight materials market.
