The report on global carbon fiber market provides qualitative and quantitative analysis for the period of 2016 to 2024. The report predicts the global carbon fiber market to grow with a CAGR of 11.7% over the forecast period of 2018-2024. The study on carbon fiber market covers the analysis of the leading geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW for the period of 2016 to 2024.
The carbon fibers are the fibers made from the carbon crystals by connecting them in the long axis. The carbon fibers are available in diverse form and can be manipulated as per the application requirement. When the carbon fibers combined with resin they form composite that has high tensile strength but are very light in weight. The carbon fibers offers many advantages over the glass fibers and plastic fibers as they high strength, rigidity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and so on.
Versatile properties offered by carbon fiber based components they are used in various industries such as aerospace and defense, automotive, construction and infrastructure, wind energy, sporting goods and so on. The carbon fiber reinforcement composite materials are used to make the aircraft, spacecraft part and automotive parts as they needs a high strength and low weight. The carbon fibers fulfil the requirements as they offer high strength with relatively low weight with high corrosion resistance.
Rapidly growing use of carbon fiber in the aerospace and spacecraft for the manufacturing of various parts is the primary factor driving the growth of the carbon fiber market. In addition, increasing awareness about the excellent mechanical and physical properties of Carbone fibers rises its used in various industries likely to boost the growth of Carbone fiber market. However, high cost of carbon fibers is hampering the growth of Carbone fiber market. Moreover, growing demand of lightweight but strong material from the automotive and aerospace industries are projected to create the more opportunities in upcoming years.
Among the region, North America dominates the market of carbon fiber market. The presence of the largest aircrafts makers in this region results in increased demand of Carbone fiber in this region. The many automotive manufactures are focusing on the production of light weight cars that is likely to boost the growth of carbon fiber market in this region
