Carbon Fiber Market Overview


Carbon fibers are fibers about 5 to 10 micrometers in diameter and are collected mostly from carbon atoms. Carbon fibers have various advantages including high stiffness, high-temperature resistance, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, and low thermal expansion. These properties of carbon fiber have made them very preferable in civil engineering, military, aerospace, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are comparatively costly when compared with similar fibers, such as glass fibers or plastic fibers. The global market size for Carbon Fiber Market growth is expected to register a CAGR of 10.75% to reach USD 19.77 billion by 2032. However, factory shutdowns interspersed supply chains and a reduced ultimatum from end-use industries have negatively affected the market for carbon fibers.
