For those unfamiliar, automotive body-in-white is the phase where the metal sheet body components of an automobile are welded simultaneously. In simple terms, it is the frame composition of the automobile prior to the assembly of hood, seat, engine, glass, doors, chassis, as well as other such sub-assemblies.

Automobile body-in-white comprises of a material with enough mechanical strength to endure the weight of components and frames, along with providing a stable and rigid suspension platform to control the vehicle effectively. In the case of a crash, it also enables the passenger module to better protect the occupants. In the current scenario, manufacturers are required to reduce the weight of the automotive frame in order to reduce the total weight of the cars, thereby effectively lowering carbon emissions below the appropriate limit.

Elaborating on the restraints, hefty costs of material for light weight solutions and high investment for hot stamping are anticipated to hamper worldwide automotive body-in-white industry remuneration over the forecast timespan. Moreover, COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has adversely impacted every single sector of the global economy, including the automotive sector, resulting in a major decline in passenger car and commercial vehicle production.

Considering the geographical perspective, Asia Pacific currently holds considerable portion of global automotive body-in-white market share, attributable to mounting government efforts to decrease carbon emission and rising automobile production in the region.

On the other hand, Europe automotive body-in-white industry is anticipated to amass high profits over the coming years, on account of strong inclination towards research & development of new technology and presence of major automakers.


Established firms in global automotive body-in-white market sphere are Magna International Inc., Martinrea International Inc., Benteler International AG, Eagle Press & Equipment Co. Ltd., AIDA Engineering Ltd., Hyundai Rotem Company, ThyssenKrupp Systems Engineering GmbH, and Gestamp Automocion SA.
