The Automotive industry is influenced
by several Megatrends, such as:
Energy Efficiency
Several governments are increasingly
critical of the emissions and fuel efficiency
levels of the current fleet of vehicles.
The Obama government has a target of
54.5 mpg fleet fuel consumption by 2020,
whereas the EU committee is expected to
reduce the CO2 emission targets for the
EU car fleet to 95 g/km and below
in that same time frame.
Styron is helping OEMs to reduce
the weight of the vehicles and
optimizing wind and tyre drag,
which has a direct positive effect
on fuel consumption and emissions

Energy Efficiency
Supporting lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Although the focus on reducing emissions
and fuel consumption is through improving
the efficiency of the engine, light-weighting
can add to this quest:
100 kg car weight reduction leads to
a further 5-7% fuel reduction
Styron Automotive supports the OEMs
by introducing innovative applications.
An example is this 3 part lift-gate assembly
of the New Renault Clio, which was
developed by Styron Automotive
together with Renault and offers more than
10% weight reduction vs. its steel alternative

Quality and Appeal
We continue to enhance the look and feel
for automotive parts
Not only the new car quality and appearance
are important, most cars are re-sold at least
once during their car life.
A sustainable quality of the interior will lead
to higher re-sale values and is therewith
in the interest of the OEM for their branding
and the end-customers alike
Styron supports this trend with VELVEXTM,
MAGNUMTM SLG, PULSETM GX 50 for
unpainted application, INSPIRETM PP
compounds (and BRANCOM PP in Brazil)
Styron Automotive is able to offer costeffective solutions that fulfill customers
expectations in quality and appeal.
