Research and Markets Logo

The carbon fiber market size is estimated to be USD 4.7 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 7.8 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 10.6%.

The carbon fiber market is growing due to its increasing demand from aerospace & defense, automotive, and wind energy industries. Carbon fibers are lightweight and have excellent strength, low specific gravity, excellent modulus of elasticity, high corrosion resistance, and high moldability.

New product launches leading to an increased application scope of carbon fiber as well as the growing usage of these products across various end-use industries, including wind energy, aerospace & defense, automotive, and marine are expected to augment the market growth. However, the high manufacturing cost of carbon fiber is the major factor restraining the growth of the market.

Carbon fiber is a long, thin strand of material made from carbon. The carbon content is more than 90% for standard modulus carbon and almost 100% for high modulus carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is produced by baking precursors such as PAN, pitch, rayon, or other organic fiber in an inert atmosphere to dissociate elements other than carbon.

Carbon fiber was first discovered in the 1970s when extensive research was happening to find alternative material for metals. Initially, carbon fibers were not widely accepted due to its limited compression strength and high price. However, today, a lot of developments have been made on carbon fiber, and its use is extensive in various end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, wind energy, and others.
