“Increasing demand for lightweight and high strength materials breaches to drive the CF and CFRP market”
The global CFRP market is projected to reach USD 35.75 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 9.9% between 2015 and 2020. The major drivers fueling the growth of the CFRP market are increasing use of carbon fiber composites in Boeing and Airbus aircrafts and the demand for lightweight vehicles so as to achieve fuel efficiency and production of electricity from renewables.

“Automotive is the fastest-growing application for the CFRP market.”
Carbon fiber composites are being used to manufacture cars of reduced weight for good performance and luxury with economical pricing. Many of the key market players are responding to the needs and expectations of the vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), system suppliers, and customers. The key driver for the growth of the market for carbon fiber composites is the increasing need for lighter, safer, cleaner, and more cost-effective vehicles. Most common automotive components where carbon fiber composites are used are exterior body parts, hoods, bonnets, and test plates. Additionally, many car companies such as BMW (Germany), Audi (Germany), and GM (U.S.) have entered in high level agreements with carbon fiber composite manufacturers to support low-cost carbon fiber composites manufacturing.

“North America is the fastest-growing market for CFRP.”
North America is the fastest-growing market for CFRP, in terms of value and volume. High economic growth rate, growing manufacturing industries, increasing carbon fiber composites patents, new product developments, capacity expansions, and new plant establishments by various leading players are few factors leading to the growth of the market for CFRP in this region.

The U.S. dominates the market for CFRP in North America. Its consumption of carbon fiber composites has grown exceptionally and is expected to witness further growth in the near future. The number of joint ventures and collaborations between carbon fiber manufacturers and OEMs helped to further expand the CFRP business in the aerospace & defense, automotive, and other industries.
