Global Carbon Fiber and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) Markets Report 2021-2031 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 4, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2021--

The “The Global Market for Carbon Fiber and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) 2021-2031” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Carbon fiber (CF) is used as a reinforcement material in composites. Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) are mainly used in wind energy, automotive, aerospace (commercial and military aircraft, space launch vehicles), and pressure vessel industries for increased strength to weight and stiffness. Other markets are sports & leisure composites (skis and snowboards, bicycles and hockey sticks) and construction.

There are significant regulatory, economic and consumer motivations for manufacturers to adopt materials that reduce the weight of the product and maintain or increase its performance. For example, manufacturers are interested in producing aircraft and automobiles that are more fuel efficient, increasing the size of wind energy blades, and producing strong lightweight storage vessels for alternative transportation fuels.

To this end, carbon fiber (CF) and carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) that provide lightweighting and strength enhancement potential, are primary candidate materials for meeting these goals.

CF has the characteristics of common carbon materials such as:

  • High temperature resistance
  • Friction resistance
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Heat conduction
  • Corrosion resistance

It also has advantageous differences such as:

  • Shape has significant anisotropy
  • Softness
  • Can be processed into various fabrics
  • Has a small specific gravity and therefore has a high specific strength

Report contents include:
