Published on : Feb-2018 | List of Tables : 106 | List of Figures : 84 | No. of Pages : 170 | Report Code : FACT466MR |

Demand for carbon fibers has surged significantly on the back of its properties such as low moisture absorption, exceptional mechanical characteristics, high temperature resistance, and relatively lower cost. Several new architectural construction projects are witnessing huge employment of carbon fiber-reinforced concrete for repairing aging buildings and bridges. Carbon fibers significantly help in curtailing time required for construction activities, thereby reducing overall expenses. Apart from the construction industry, carbon fibers seek enormous applications in the automotive and aerospace industries, particularly for curbing the weight of components used. Increasing focus of automobile manufacturers in adoption of materials, which minimize the overall vehicle weight and enhance vehicle performance, has resulted into robust adoption of carbon fiber in this industry. Carbon fibers are increasingly employed in the aerospace industry on the back of their good strength to weight ratio, and are utilized on a large scale for manufacturing aircraft components such as vertical stabilizers, engine nacelles wings, floor beams, and elevators.

APEJ will Remain Dominant in Global Carbon Fiber Market

In terms of value, the global market for carbon fiber will continue to be dominated by Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), mainly driven by increasing investments in the infrastructure development in emerging countries such as India and China, along with robust expansion of the automotive sector in the region. Europe is also expected to be a lucrative region for the carbon fiber market, owing to strict laws and regulations implemented by the governments for reducing the environmental pollution caused by vehicles, which has led the automotive manufacturers in the region to opt for vehicle lightweighting.

Rapid growth of the aviation industry has led to demand for lightweight and robust materials for fabrication of aircraft components. Carbon fibers have become an effective solution for curtailing production time. Aerospace & defense will continue to be the largest end-user of carbon fiber. Use of carbon fiber in the automotive industry will also witness a significant rise, as carbon fibers witness increasing adoption in production of automobile for reducing the vehicle weight and enhancing the vehicle performance.

Key Research Findings from the Report

  • PAN-based CF will remain preferred among precursor materials in the market
  • Small tow size of carbon fibers will remain sought-after among end-users in the market
