Aramid Fiber Market Overview


Aramid Fiber Market Size is projected to be worth USD 8.6 Billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 10.75% during the forecast period (2021 - 2028). Aramid fiber is a heat-resistant and strong synthetic fiber derived from a man-made organic polymer. They have outstanding properties such as resistance to abrasion and organic solvents, non-conductivity, high melting point, low flammability, and so on. The growing need for protective gear from the military & defense, as well as the industrial sectors, is driving the global aramid fiber market. Because of their flame resistance and heat resistance, aramid fiber is becoming more popular in the defense sector for homeland security and terrorist measures. Over the forecast period, the use of aramid fiber in ballistic applications such as bulletproof jackets and protective gloves is expected to drive market expansion. Aramid fiber is also utilized in the automobile industry to make hoses, belts, gaskets, tires, brake pads, and clutches, among other things. They also aid in improving the vehicle's performance, safety, and longevity. Furthermore, the global market is being driven by rising demand for various applications such as electrical insulation, optical fiber, and others. Because the product is a good substitute for steel and asbestos, it is frequently employed in the building industry. These fibers are widely used to create sturdy and lightweight consumer items like refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, and other appliances.

Key Players


Some of the manufacturers operating in the global aramid fiber market are TEIJIN LIMITED (Japan), Yantai Tayho Advanced Materials Co., Ltd (China), HYOSUNG (South Korea), Toray Chemicals Korea Inc. (South Korea), KERMEL (France), Kolon Industries, Inc. (South Korea), Huvis (South Korea), China National Bluestar (Group) Co. Ltd. (China), SRO Aramid (Jiangzu) Co., Ltd. (China), and IBIDEN CO., LTD. (Japan).


Market Synopsis: 


Aramid fiber market is a man-made organic polymer and belongs to a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. They exhibit superior characteristics such as good resistance to abrasion and organic solvents, non-conductivity, high melting point, low flammability, and others.


The global aramid fiber market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for protective clothing from military & defense, and industrial sectors. The growing defense sector for homeland security and counterterrorism strategies is augmenting the demand for aramid fiber due to their flame resistant and heat protective nature. The use of aramid fiber in ballistic applications such as bulletproof vests and protective gloves is likely to fuel the market growth over the assessment period 2017-2023. Furthermore, aramid fiber is used in the automotive sector for making hoses, belts, gaskets, tyres, brake pads, clutches, and others. They also help in increasing the performance, safety, and durability of the automotive. Moreover, the increasing demand for various applications such as electrical insulation, optical fiber, and others is driving the global market. The product is an excellent substitute for steel and asbestos, therefore, it is widely used in the construction sector. These fibers are extensively consumed in the manufacturing of consumer goods such as refrigerator, AC, washing machines, and others to make them strong and lightweight. Nevertheless, stringent regulations for occupational safety by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is expected to augment the market growth. However, the high production cost and the non-biodegradable nature of these fibers are likely to hamper the market growth.


Some of the key trends observed in the market are a merger, acquisitions, and others. For instance, in March 2017, DuPont Protection Solutions entered a two-year global agreement for DuPont TM Kevlar with Nitro Circus, an action sports company, thus, influencing the product use in sporting goods.
