Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) Market Trends, Consumption, Drivers, Industrial Overview, Analysis and Forecast to 2022

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Global carbon fiber reinforced polymer which is growing rapidly and expected to continue its growth by the end of 2022.

Product Description
Globally, carbon fiber reinforced polymer has increased its market growth in recent years and this market is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the forecasted period. Fiber reinforced polymer composites are made by combining a plastic polymer resin together with strong reinforcing fibers. Here components retain their original form and their own unique properties which results in a new composite material with heightened overall performance. Reinforcing polymer material with fibers further improves the strength and stiffness of carbon fibers. The polymer resin is typically viscous and may be easily molded but is relatively weak. The resin component protects it against abrasion or chemical attack and these acts as a binder in the reinforcing fibers, which mechanically support and transfer loads in the composite.

Europe and North America leads the world with respect to the demand of carbon fiber reinforced polymer. Demand for this in North America is same as demand for the same in Europe and these exceeds the demand rate when compared to both Asia and Japan. Excess manufacturing capacity exists currently, especially in small-two capacity and in North America and Asia, but as per recent analysis done a significant demand growth has been suggested in two markets namely automotive and wind applications for meeting the demand. This creates a potential export opportunity for North American manufacturers.

Carbon fiber reinforced polymers offer weight and performance benefits that are driving demand for them. As the demand for these products will increase in several market sectors, this report addresses supply and demand issues as well as factors that have affected and can affect future U.S. competitiveness in the CF and CFRP supply chain.

The Global Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Market is majorly segmented on the basis of Application, and production process. Based on the application the market is segmented Construction, Electrical Isolation, Industrial, Marine and Others. On basis of production process the market is segmented into Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) Precursor and Petroleum Pitch Precursor

Regional Analysis
North America is expected to maintain its dominance in the global market owing to increasing domestic demand for carbon fiber reinforced polymer by the chemical industry. Emerging markets of China, Japan and India are expected to boost the Asia Pacific Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Market. Other emerging markets are the European and Middle East countries. North America has the largest market share for global carbon fiber reinforced polymer, followed by Europe and other parts of the world.
