The global demand for Carbon Fiber Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XX MN by 2026 from USD XX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Carbon Fiber, nicknamed the superman of materials, is a 5-10 micrometer thick fiber composed mostly of carbon atoms. Carbon fiber considered five times stronger than steel and is very lightweight. It is made from plant parts like corn stalks and wheat straw. Carbon fiber has striking characteristics like high stiffness, less flammable, high tensile strength, recyclable, low weight, high chemical resistance, rigid, high-temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion. They are used in a wide gamut of applications like golf clubs, wind turbine blades, defense, pipes, race cars,3D printing, and building construction. The size of the fiber is dependent mainly on the end-use of the customers.
Growing demand for eco-friendly solutions in the automotive industry is the main driver for the growth of the Carbon Fiber market. Increased awareness and the use of a composite form of the fiber in a wide gamut of industries will further propel the market growth. The use of carbon fiber in lucrative sectors like race cars and avionics due to its distinct characteristics like lightweight and strength will be a market booster. Rapid urbanization and expanding the use of carbon fiber in 3D printing will stimulate market growth. The factor that may impact this market's growth is the high cost associated with the manufacture of carbon fiber.
