The North America carbon fiber market is expected to grow from US$ 907.32 million in 2019 to US$ 2,058.44 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2020 to 2027. The increasing usage of carbon fiber in the wind energy industry is bolstering the growth of the market in North America. Growing demand for renewable resources has led to a surge in the installation for wind farms, with large tracts of land and coastal areas devoted to the operation of wind turbines. The wind turbine manufacturers strive to produce more efficient and longer blades. Advanced composite materials such as carbon fiber are becoming a major part of the construction of wind turbines, specifically the blades. According to the studies conducted by companies operating in the market, longer the blades on a turbine, more is the energy it generates. Carbon fibers plays a crucial role in the wind energy industry. Large blades are typically designed for stiffness and deflection, rather than taking material strength into consideration. Carbon fibers, if used in the turbines, enable high stiffness characteristic that reduces blade deflection, allowing a larger tower diameter for a given blade-to-tower clearance. Carbon fibers are added in the spar cap, which is the backbone of the blade. These fibers are also considered as an effective alternative to the glass fibers used in the wind turbines, as they make the blades thinner, stiffer, and lighter. Furthermore, they have relatively low damage tolerance, compressive strength, and ultimate strain. Thus, carbon fiber has come up as an impactful technology for turbine manufacturers such as Vestas Wind Systems A/S and Gamesa Technology Corp. These companies use carbon fiber in select structural parts of the blades. Lighter blades require less robust turbine and tower components, and hence, the cascading cost savings justify the additional cost of carbon. The rising demands from the automotive and aerospace applications are among the other factors expected to positively influence the demand for carbon fiber in North America during the forecast period

The US reported the highest number of COVID-19 confirmed cases than Canada and Mexico. Amid the pandemic, restrictions on supply and distribution chain are hindering the consumer goods industry in North America.

The North America carbon fiber market is segmented on the basis of raw material, end use industry, and country.Based on raw material, the market is bifurcated into PAN and Pitch.

In 2019, the PAN segment held a larger market share.Based on end user indsutry, the North America carbon fiber market is segmented into automotive, aerospace and defense, construction, sporting goods, wind energy, and others.

The market for the aerospace and defense segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period.
