Abstract

Automotive industry relentlessly in a quest for higher performance of vehicles in several aspects such as increased fuel efficiency and hence reduced tailpipe emissions, improved aerodynamic and driving performance, elevated safety precautions such as crash energy absorption, etc. All these concerns should be addressed with minimal weight increase and without compromising from passenger safety. This manuscript, first gives an overview for world auto industry and 
projections, and then reviews benefits and problems encountered in development and implementation of high strength steels particularly in automotive industry.
