Carbon Fiber Market 2017-2020 Overview and Forecasts Research Reports

PUNE, India, November 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- adds "Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2014-2017" and "Global Carbon Fiber Industry 2015 Market Research Report" to its online business intelligence library.

Carbon fiber is the new-generation reinforced fiber, mainly used in the fields of aerospace, industry, sports and leisure. In 2014, the global industrial applications like natural gas, wind power and automobiles showed the largest demand for carbon fiber, 64% or so.

Complete Report on carbon fiber market spread across 116 pages, mentioning 9 companies and supported with 119 charts is now available at .

In 2014, the global carbon fiber capacity totalled approximately 130,000 tons, mainly contributed by Japan, Europe and the U.S. The world's top five companies -- Toray, Teijin, Mitsubishi Rayon, Germany SGL and Formosa Plastics shared 60% of the global carbon fiber capacity together.

Due to excellent performance, the market demand for carbon fiber has been strong. The global carbon fiber demand amounted to 70,000 tons or more in 2014. Specifically, the demand from automotive lightweight grows faster, which attracts many companies to get involved in this field. SGL and BMW cooperate to make use of carbon fiber materials in the body structure of BMW i3 and i8. Toyota will use Toray's carbon fiber for Mirai fuel cell vehicles.

In 2014, China carbon fiber industry took shape, the T300 carbon fiber made in China partially replaced the imported one, and T700 and T800 technologies made breakthroughs. However, the Chinese producers hold backward technologies and pay high production costs; coupled with the declining international carbon fiber price in recent three years, Chinese carbon fiber enterprises are confronted with operating difficulties with a low operating rate. In 2014, China's output of carbon fiber only reached about 3,000 tons, and the self-sufficiency rate was less than 20%.

In 2014, there were more than 30 Chinese carbon fiber manufacturers, but only Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Material and Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber achieved the respective output of above 1,000 tons, while the carbon fiber devices of some enterprises were in a shutdown state. At present, China's planned / ongoing carbon fiber capacity hits 30,000 tons or more, but Chinese carbon fiber companies will delay or cancel some projects under greater pressure incurred by foreign competitors.

Despite China's low output growth rate, the demand for carbon fiber grows quickly and may ascend at the expected growth rate of more than 20% during 2015-2017. The favourable national policies and huge market potentials have prompted a number of listed companies to step in the field of carbon fiber, such as Toray, Zoltek, Teijin, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Kureha, Hexcel, CYTEC, SGL, Formosa Plastics, Sinosteel Jilin Carbon Co., Ltd., Jilin Qifeng Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., Kingfa, Beijing Urban Construction, Ningxia Dayuan Chemical Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Tianniao, Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber, Shanxi Hengtian, Weihai Tuozhan, PetroChina Jilin Petrochemical, Anshan Sinocarb, Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Material, Anhui Xinfeng, Tianshun Chemical, Handan Silicon Valley (HSVC), HNEC Yongmei Carbon Fiber, Shenyang Zhongheng New Materials, Sichuan Xinwanxing Carbon Fiber Composites, Xi'an Carbon Materials, Zhejiang Juxin Carbon Fiber, Anhui Shouwen, Gansu Haoshi, Sinofibers Technology, Dalian Xingke, Proposed and Ongoing Projects, Shanghai Petrochemical, Ordos Yaxin Carbon Fiber, Shanxi Hongte, Shandong Xintian, Xinjiang Chuangyue, Dalian Guorui, Taiyuan Iron & Steel Group, Bluestar Weibang, Hebang, Kangdexin.
