The global recycled carbon fiber market size is expected to grow from USD 126 million in 2021 to USD 222 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 12.0%


during the forecast period. These materials exhibit excellent properties such as high strength and modulus, low density, dimensional stability and low thermal expansion. However, the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all end-use industries has negatively affected the recycled carbon fiber market.

New York, March 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Recycled Carbon Fiber Market by Type, Source, End-Use Industry and Region – Global Forecast to 2026” –
The recycled carbon fiber market is growing due to the increase in demand for cost-effective and high-performance materials, and stringent government regulations globally.

Chopped type is the fastest growing segment in the recycled carbon fiber market in terms of both value and volume.
Chopped recycled carbon fiber is suitable for various industrial mixing and blending processes, including injection molding. It has low density, low thermal expansion, good electrical conductivity, excellent fluid behavior and is non-corrosive.

It can be used in low and high temperature applications and for manufacturing electrically conductive materials.

Strong demand from automotive and transportation, marine, industrial, aerospace and defense and other end-use industries is expected to increase the demand for staple fibers. Moreover, the governments of various countries are focusing on the use of recycled materials, which will further drive the demand for chopped recycled carbon fiber.

Source of aerospace scrap to lead recycled carbon fiber in value and volume.
Aerospace waste is one of the most important sources for obtaining carbon fibers for reuse. Aerospace OEMs have taken initiatives to recycle high quality carbon fiber components used in the manufacture of aircraft components.

Aircraft manufacturers have taken several initiatives to strengthen environmental management standards for the disposal of end-of-life aircraft. For example, Boeing entered into an agreement with ELG Carbon Fiber to supply its composite waste to the company.

Leading manufacturers such as Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), ELG Carbon Fiber Ltd. (UK), Carbon Conversions Inc. (USA), Shocker Composites LLC. (USA) and Vartega Inc. (USA) source fibers from aerospace waste.

The automotive and transportation end-use industry will be the largest carbon fiber recycler in terms of value and volume.

Developed countries, including Germany, the United States and Japan, focus on using environmentally friendly products. The EU has required that 85% of materials used in vehicles be recyclable.

As waste generated by carbon fibers can be recovered and turned into new products, recycled carbon fiber is an ideal material for use in a wide range of industries. Using recycled carbon fiber in auto parts makes them cost effective.

According to a general manager of a major recycled carbon fiber manufacturing company, the cost of recycled carbon fiber used in automotive components ranges between USD 20/kg and USD 27/kg.
SGL Group (Germany) and BMW (Germany) created a joint venture named SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers GmbH & Co.KG (Germany).

The company uses recycled carbon fiber in various automotive components. It used recycled carbon fiber for the roof of the i3 electric cars and i8 plug-in hybrids.

Of the total CFRP parts used in the BMW i series, 10% are made from recycled carbon fibre. The company uses a closed-loop process to recycle dry carbon fibers.

Europe is the leading market for recycled carbon fibers in terms of value and volume.

Europe accounted for the major part of the recycled carbon fiber market, Europe led the recycled carbon fiber market in terms of value in 2020 The region has the presence of major recycled carbon fiber manufacturers, such as ELG Carbon Fiber Ltd. (United Kingdom), Procotex Corporation SA (Belgium), Alpha Recyclage Composites (France) and SGL Carbon (Germany). The growth of the market in this region is supported by the advancement of composite technology solutions and the penetration of composites in the aerospace and defense, construction and infrastructure, automotive and transportation and wind energy. The governments of many countries in the region are focusing on the use of environmentally friendly products. This further supports the growth of the recycled carbon fiber market in Europe.
