Study Goals And Objectives

The overall goal of this study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of advances in structural carbon materials manufacturing, their commercial applications, and worldwide markets. For the purposes of this report, these materials are defined to include all types of carbon fibers, carbon foams, monolithic structural graphite, carbon-reinforced carbon composites and certain graphene materials.

Specific objectives of the study include describing the major types of structural carbon materials, including key physical and chemical properties, raw materials and manufacturing processes. Commercial applications in which these materials are used will be discussed.

Present consumption and future demand for these materials will be evaluated for the United States and other major geographical markets. Trends in technology will be analyzed and forecasted. The impact of governmental regulations will be assessed. The dynamics of the structural carbons industry will be outlined along with profiles of key manufacturers.

Reasons For Doing The Study

The structural carbon materials industry and markets have continued to develop in the two years since the previous edition was published. The structural carbon materials industry serves mature markets such as defense and aerospace, with a wide variety of products satisfying the requirements of well-established applications. However, continuous technical innovations and efforts to make structural carbon technologies available for new applications (at affordable prices) are leading to the development of new markets.

Corporations in the structural carbons industry need to understand the significance of these trends to manage their enterprise and resources effectively. Users of structural carbons must also understand the effect of these changes in order to select the most cost-effective option among newly available products and technologies prior to committing significant capital resources.
