Report Details

The carbon fibre composites market will exhibit strong growth in the near future across many industry sectors and applications. Carbon fibre composites are a highly competitive market with a myriad of companies competing for market share in what is a highly fragmented market with no company having a dominant position.
The biggest players in the carbon fibre composites market, overall, include Hexcel, Cytec, Toray and Teijin. However these companies by no means have a significantly bigger stake than other leading composite companies as the market is characterised by a high degree of fragmentation. The composites market is a very specialised market, with most companies producing one type of composite. Cytec, for example, specialise in carbon fibre alone. However, some major global companies produce more than one of the composites. A clear example is Teijin, who produce carbon fibre as well as aramid fibre.

More importantly, many of these companies are important players in the composites market because of their innovation and pioneering approaches. Most of these companies invest heavily in research and development and in ways of finding new applications for composites. Visiongain believes this trend will increase the size of the carbon fibre and also the overall composites market in the next decade.
