Insights on the Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Global Market to 2026 - by Raw Materials, Type, Manufacturing Process, Application and Region

·6-min read

Dublin, July 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) refers to a composite material that consists of a polymer matrix fortified with fibers. Epoxy, polyester, nylon and vinyl are some of the commonly used CFRPs, which are usually produced by the infusion of the resin with a carbon fiber reinforcement. They are also manufactured through various other processes, such as layup, pultrusion and winding, compression and injection, etc. These plastics exhibit numerous physical properties, such as impact resistance, fatigue resistance, high tensile strength, durability and minimal weight. Owing to this, they find extensive applications in the manufacturing of sports equipment, aerospace and automotive components, protective helmets, blades of wind turbines and construction materials.

The continuous growth in the aerospace industry, along with the increasing product demand for the manufacturing of lightweight automotive components, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In comparison to the traditionally used materials, such as aluminum and steel, CFRPs aid in the manufacturing of environment-friendly and lightweight components with improved fuel economy and higher efficiencies. Extensive utilization of CFRP in the production of various building and construction materials is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Columns, piers, pylons and reinforcing structures are manufactured using CFRP, owing to its durability and resistance against electromagnetic interference. Other factors, including the growing demand for high-performance products in the defense sector and the increasing product utilization in surgical implants and other medical applications, are projected to drive the market further.
