The global carbon fiber market was valued at $ 3,216.54 million in 2020 with Europe region leading the market share. The carbon fiber market is primarily driven by the aerospace industry to improve aircraft performance and efficiency. The superior physical strength, low coefficient of thermal expansion, high dimensional stability, and low abrasion characteristics of carbon fiber complete its applications in aerospace antennas, aircraft brakes, and support structures.

In addition, the booming wind industry is generating a high demand for carbon fiber for use in wind blades. The exceptional fatigue and corrosion resistance property of the carbon material improves the longevity of the wind blades. In addition, the increasing adoption of clean energy technologies to reduce emissions is expected to further boost the carbon fiber market in the estimated years.

Growing demand for lightweight materials, along with government initiatives to reduce emissions of harmful gases and increase energy efficiency, are expected to boost the market for carbon fiber in other transportation applications such as automotive industries and maritime. Carbon fiber, due to its light weight, high thermal stability and electrical conductivity, is widely used in various important automotive components, such as disc brakes, wheels, automobile hoods and others, in because of this share of carbon fiber from automotive applications is expected to increase dramatically in the coming years.

In addition, an increase in the consumption of carbon fiber is also expected due to the increased production of vehicles to meet the high demand of consumers. Besides automotive applications, carbon fiber also has significant growth potential in infrastructure, marine engineering, and electronics applications.

Among the regions, Asia Pacific The region is estimated to be the fastest growing market for carbon fiber during the period 2021-2026. The growth of Asia Pacific This market can be attributed to the increasing R&D investments in the automotive industry and the end use of wind power. In addition, the increase in the production of the manufacturing sector of the Asia Pacific region to meet national needs for higher quality products and increasing exports from the Japan and China leading to increased demand for carbon fiber in the region.
