Market Synopsis


According to the MRFR analysis, the global high-performance fiber is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of more than 8% to reach over USD 25 billion in 2030. The major factors favoring this growth of the market are surging demand from major end-use industries namely automotive, aerospace & defense, and electronics & telecommunication. The global market for aerospace core material is projected to reach over 40 billion USD by 2023, which is expected to fuel the demand of high-performance fibers. Surging demand of light-weight materials in modern automobiles is projected to propel growth market in coming years. In the coming years, wind energy is anticipated to witness a rapid adoption as an important source of renewable energy by many developing countries owing to an increasing environmental concern. The global sports industry is set to grow at considerable CAGR of 8% on the backdrop of the forthcoming Olympic Games in 2020, which is likely boost demand for the product in sports equipment and sportwear.  Moreover, the major market players are manufacturing the product are heavily investing in capacity expansion production to meet an increasing demand from diverse end-use industries. However, the high production cost for carbon and other high-end fibers is likely to limits the market growth.

High-performance fibers are the specialty fibers that confer a higher value in wide range of applications. These types of fibers are mainly differentiated from the commodity fiber on the basis of the special technical functions that require specific performance properties. In addition, it is commonly referred to as a fiber with some unique characteristics which fits properly for a particular application. In general, the high-performance fibers exhibit remarkably high tensile strength and modulus, resistance to heat, flame, resistance to chemical agents which can easily degrade conventional fibers. The major applications of the product can be found in automotive and aerospace & defense industries and construction, energy and telecommunication sectors.
