Aramid fiber, composed of aromatic polyamides, has been a key material for use in various applications due to its diversified characteristics including high strength, impact resistance, low density, good chemical resistance, high heat resistance and abrasion resistance. Safety & protection, electrical insulation, filtration, frictional materials, optical fiber cables, rubber and tire reinforcements are among the current applications in which aramid fibers have been mostly utilized. Global demand for aramid fibers, which was bottomed out in 2009 has increased to record level in 2011 and is projected to increase by a CAGR of about 7% during 2014-2020, reflecting the growing need for materials that contribute to enhanced safety and security, low weight and help reducing energy consumption. Global demand for aramid fibers (both para and meta) is estimated at 74.5 thousand metric tons in 2014 and is further projected to reach 110 thousand metric tons by 2020 valued at US$4.7 billion.

Safety & protection constitutes the largest end-use application for aramid fibers accounting for a share of over 30 percent in 2013. However, in terms of growth, optical fiber cables are slated to outpace all other application areas with a volume CAGR of 8.4% during the 2014 to 2020 analysis period. Aramid fiber product types analyzed in this study include Para-Aramid fibers and Meta-Aramid fibers. With a slight overlapping for these two product segments, end-use application areas of aramid fibers analyzed include for Para-Aramid Fibers – Safety & Protection, Frictional Materials, Optical Fiber Cables, Tire Reinforcements, Rubber Reinforcements and other applications; and Meta-Aramid Fibers – Electrical Insulation, Safety & Protection, Filtration, Rubber Reinforcements and other applications.
