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 10.6% to reach USD 7.8 billion by 2027. However, factory shutdowns interspersed supply chains and a reduced ultimatum from end-use industries have negatively affected the market for carbon fibers.

By form, the global carbon fiber market has been classified into composite and non-composite.


By type, the global carbon fiber market has been segmented into continuous, long, and short carbon fibers.


Based on application, the global carbon fiber market has been segmented into automotive, aerospace & defense, wind turbines, sports equipment, molding & compounding, construction, pressure vessels, and others.


Regional Analysis:


The global carbon fiber market has been spanned across five regions, namely Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.


North America held the largest share of the global carbon fiber market outlook in 2020. The use of carbon fibers has increased in the region in different applications such as aerospace & defense and sports equipment, due to the unique properties offered by it. The North American market is projected to witness remarkable growth during the forecast period.


Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing market in 2020, owing to the increasing demand in the construction and automotive industries. The growth is attributed to its high strength, lightweight, and tensile properties, which are required in automobile and construction applications. The regional market is expected to represent similar growth during the forecast period.


The European market is projected to grow at a faster pace, owing to the increasing application of carbon fiber in 3D printing materials, which is extensively used in the electronics industry. Additionally, the growth in the renewable energy sector is contributing to the growth of the regional market, which is now used in wind turbines. The region is predicted to show considerable growth during the forecast period.


The Latin American market is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period. The use of carbon fibers in molding & compounding as well as in pressure vessels due to their high strength is contributing to the growth of global carbon fiber market in this region.


The Middle East & Africa market for carbon fibers is expected to show sluggish growth during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the growing use of carbon fibers in the construction industry.

Toray Industries, Inc (Japan), Teijin Limited (Japan), SGL Group (Germany), Hexcel Corporation (US), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), HYOSUNG (South Korea), Cytec Industries Inc. (US), DowAksa (US), OJSC «SvetlogorskKhimvolokno» (Belarus), Taekwang Industrial Co., Ltd (South Korea), Nippon Graphite Fiber Co., Ltd. (Japan), Formosa Plastics Corporation (US), Carbon Mods (US), and Kureha Corporation (Japan) are some of the major players in the global carbon fiber market.Recent Development


The global covid-19 pandemic has interrupted the development, growth, and functioning of most sectors across the world. The supply chain of most industries has been severely affected due to the pandemic, band, lockdown, and restrictions on travel and movement across the world. The swapping business environment and geopolitical scenarios have caused the carbon fiber market to decline. The decreased production capacity and lower ultimatum for primary sectors have impacted many manufacturers, leading to a lower ultimatum for carbon fibers. The primary end-use industries such as automotive, pipe and tank, civil engineering, aerospace, and defense were very badly affected by the pandemic. However, the implementation of strict eco-friendly rules and regulations in developed and developing countries is calculated to further drive the carbon fiber market report. The mass production of these fibers may also result in grown perforation into ordinary cars.
