Global $8.57 Bn Carbon Fiber Markets, 2021-2026 by Raw Materials, Fiber Type, Product Type, Modulus, Application, End Users - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 16, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 16, 2021--

The “Global Carbon Fiber Market (2021-2026) by Raw Materials, Fiber Type, Product Type, Modulus, Application, End Users, Geography, Competitive Analysis and the Impact of Covid-19 with Ansoff Analysis” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Global Carbon Fiber Market is estimated to be USD 5.3 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 8.57 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.1%.

Carbon fiber is composed of carbon atoms bonded together to form a long chain, these carbon atoms form a microscopic crystal exhibiting high strength to weight ratio. The rising product usage in the industries such as automotive, wind energy, and aerospace for reducing the weight of the components and parts used in these industries will drive market growth.
