LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Due to their superior characteristics, carbon fibers and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) have come into huge importance for application in many industrial sectors, including automotive, wind energy, aerospace & defense, offshore oil & gas applications and composite pressure vessels, etc.
World demand for CFRP in volume terms is anticipated to maintain 15.3% CAGR during 2012-2020 in approaching 210,000 tonnes by 2020. In value terms, the demand for CFRP is expected to reach USD 25.2 billion by 2020, at a 2012-2020 CAGR of about 12%. Meanwhile, global volume demand for carbon fibers is forecast to be 141,000 tonnes by 2020, registering a 2012-2020 CAGR of nearly 15.5%. In terms of value, the globe’s demand for carbon fibers is projected to reach nearly USD 5 billion by the tail end of 2020.
New study “Carbon Fibers & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) - A Global Market Overview” elaborated by Industry Experts estimates and projects the global market for carbon fibers and carbon fiber reinforced plastics during 2008-2020 by major geographies (including North America, Europe, Japan, Asia and RoW) and end-use application areas.
The report includes statistical data for production capacities by precursor type, geographic region, country and by major manufacturer; and provides brief business profiles of the world’s top 74 players comprising 27 carbon fiber, 6 recycle carbon fiber and 41 carbon fiber composite manufacturers. The listing of 54 companies engaged in carbon fiber production, recycling, as well as carbon fiber precursor and low-cost carbon fiber R&D is included. Also, the research lists global 209 companies involved in manufacturing, supplying, molding and fabricating carbon fiber composites.
