Summary

Table of Contents

Among the world’s three major high performance fibers, carbon fiber features the highest strength and the highest specific modulus. It is widely used in such fields as aerospace, sports and leisure.

Global carbon fiber demand approximated 90kt in 2018, and will expectedly double to 180kt in 2025 with the growing demand from new energy vehicle and aerospace markets.

In 2018, global carbon fiber market was worth USD2.6 billion, a figure projected to hit USD5 billion in 2025. Carbon fiber is often launched on market in the form of carbon fiber composite, a product synthesized with carbon fiber and adhesives. Carbon fiber market has a one-tenth size of the carbon fiber composites market which was valued at virtually USD28 billion worldwide in 2018 with a year-on-year increase of 11.6% and will exceed USD50 billion as estimated in 2025. The carbon fiber composites for aerospace as a structural material of aircrafts, currently occupying more than 60% of the global market, will sustain growth rates of above 10% from 2019 to 2025.

In recent years, global carbon fiber capacity kept growing at a steady pace, up to around 150kt/a in 2018, about 90% of which was the dominant polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based carbon fiber.

The complicated, difficult carbon fiber process poses quite high technical barriers. In current stage, carbon fiber technologies are largely grasped by Japanese companies like Toray, Toho and Mitsubishi Rayon, together holding 50% or so of the global acrylonitrile-based carbon fiber (small tow) market.

Apart from Japanese firms, those who have won a place in global carbon fiber market include Hexcel, SGL and Formosa Plastic Group. Toray however still boasts the biggest market share of some 29%.

In the Chinese carbon fiber industry, the 30 local companies are making strategic arrangements, with a combined capacity of 28kt/a, but most of them are so small and so left-behind in technology that they are incapable of stable sizable production and without doubt fail to meet huge demand from the high-end industries. Chinese carbon fiber producers are mainly players in low-end markets like sports and leisure. Yet companies including Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Hengshen Co., Ltd., Weihai Guangwei Composites Co., Ltd., and Sinofibers Technology Co., Ltd. are working to deploy high-end markets such as aerospace, by continuous investment in technology. Examples include Sinofibers Technology whose T700 carbon fiber has been commercialized, and Weihai Guangwei and Jiangsu Hengshen both having turned their T300 carbon fiber into commercial products. China’s carbon fiber industry may be shuffled in the forthcoming years and downsized to five to ten players, as it has done in 2019 when Anhui Truchum Advanced Materials and Technology Co., Ltd. announced acquisition of Jiangsu Tianniao High Technology Co., Ltd. for a foray into the high-end military carbon fiber market.
