Executive Summary

Carbon Fiber is a material consisting of very thin filaments of carbon atoms. Superior properties of carbon fiber such as high strength, high stiffness, low density, non-corrosiveness; electrical conductivity, and chemical inertness make it an ideal material in the plethora of applications such as aerospace, military, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods, and industrial applications.

The factors leading to increased interest in the carbon fiber market include demand for more fuel efficient vehicles, structural & performance advantages, continuous emergence of novel applications, and increased demand from emerging economies. However, the market’s potential is somewhat hindered by high price of carbon fiber, insufficient production capacity, processing difficulties, and lack of automation. In spite of this, there is a huge opportunity for existing & new carbon fiber producers.

Although, the adoption rate of carbon fiber is increasing, mass-market adoption will not be achieved until a few major challenges are addressed. These challenges are: high cost of production, the gap between the supply and demand, and uneven competition. Carbon fiber continues to do very well in aerospace, consumer and industrial sector, with a number of application-specific capabilities. Carbon fiber finds its application in large number of industries for example wind energy, oil and gas, automotive, civil infrastructure and tooling etc. Aerospace and defense is the top contributor of the carbon fiber market and together held more than 50% of the carbon fiber market in 2013. This growth is attributed to their wide application area. The advantages of carbon fiber make it a very attractive market for investment.
