Carbon fiber lowers weight, which increases efficiency and its strength makes cars safer and more reliable.
The automotive industry is one of the world’s largest sectors in terms of revenue. Yet, given the sheer number of cars on the road, the focus has shifted towards the need to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. Carbon fiber now plays an ever-increasing role in leading innovations that make cars more efficient by reducing weight and also by making them safer and more comfortable, by increasing rigidity and strength. Teijin's carbon fiber products are used in many automotive applications, from mainstream family vehicles to high-performance racing cars and lightweight electric hybrids.
