Free webinar discusses evolving material trends in Body-in-White

Collision repairers can benefit from highlights of IHS Markit’s Body-in-White forecast, Feb. 4, including component materials and manufacturing processes

London—Body-in-White (BIW) represents the core structure of each car, typically accounting for anywhere between 20 percent to 45 percent of the vehicle’s weight, depending on the architecture and segment. As such, this is the main target for automakers to achieve weight reductions, as it is usually the heaviest portion of the car.

IHS Markit provides a 12-year forecast with model and body-style level information on BIW component materials, manufacturing processes and estimated weight. The forecast provides a unique and powerful granularity of data, where users can assess how and when a material change will happen on specific BIW components and the impact on weight due to this material change.

The speaker will be Edwin Pope, principal analyst, Automotive Lightweighting, IHS Markit.
