Carbon Fibers & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) - A Global Market Overview 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN

The "Carbon Fibers & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) - A Global Market Overview 2018" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The automotive industry is primed to be the fastest growing sector for carbon fibers and OEMs operating in this area are likely to employ a combination of steel, aluminum and composites based on demands of mechanical requirements and costs. The other sector likely to contribute to significant growth in demand for carbon fibers is pressure vessels that are used for storing and transporting compressed and liquefied natural gas in automotive and fleet applications, with regions in Asia, South America and Europe being the main drivers.

Aerospace & Defense constitutes the largest end-use application for Carbon Fiber consumption globally, with a demand of 16.5 thousand metric tons in 2017, accounting for a share of 22.4%. The worldwide consumption of carbon fibers is estimated to reach 132.7 thousand metric tons in 2018.
