Dublin, Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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.
CF has the characteristics of common carbon materials such as:
high temperature resistance
It also has advantageous differences such as:
shape has significant anisotropy
can be processed into various fabrics
has a small specific gravity and therefore has a high specific strength.
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.
Report contents include:
Figures for current carbon fiber and CFRP demand, production capacities and projected future demand to 2031, by metric tonnes, end user markets and regions.
Market and technical developments 2020-2021.
