Global carbon fiber reinforced plastics industry by 2026

DUBLIN, July 5, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The report “Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2021-2026” has been added to the offering from

The global market for carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) showed moderate growth in the period 2015-2020. Looking ahead, the publisher expects the market to grow with a CAGR of around 6% in the forecast period (2021-2026). Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) is a composite material that consists of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers. Epoxy, polyester, nylon and vinyl are some of the most commonly used CFRPs, usually made by infusing the resin with a carbon fiber reinforcement. They are also made by various other processes such as lamination, pultrusion and winding, compression and injection, etc. These plastics exhibit numerous physical properties such as impact resistance, fatigue resistance, high tensile strength, durability and minimal weight. Because of this, they find extensive applications in the manufacture of sports equipment, aerospace and automotive components, protective helmets, wind turbine blades, and building materials.

The continued growth of the aerospace industry, along with increasing product demand for the manufacture of lightweight automotive components, is one of the key factors driving the market’s growth. Compared to the traditionally used materials such as aluminum and steel, CFRPs help to manufacture environmentally friendly and lighter components with improved fuel consumption and higher levels of efficiency. Another important growth factor is the extensive use of CFRP in the manufacture of various building and building materials. Columns, pillars, pylons and reinforcement structures are made of CFRP due to its durability and resistance to electromagnetic interference. Other factors, including increasing demand for high-performance defense products and increasing product usage in surgical implants and other medical applications, are expected to continue to drive the market.
