Along with the increasing demand for carbon fiber in aerospace, sports and industry, the market scale of carbon fiber in the world has grown rapidly. In 2016, demand for carbon fiber reached approximately 70 thousand tonnes.
In 2016, the output of carbon fiber reached around 4,900 tonnes in China. Along with more application of carbon fiber in automobile, machine and aerospace industry, the apparent consumption of carbon fiber rises up as well, which accounted for approximately 7,600 tonnes in 2016. Carbon fiber supplies cannot meet the domestic demand and the market is mainly occupied by foreign manufacturers whose products have advantage on technology and price.
Carbon fiber is mainly used in aerospace, aviation, sports and industry. It is predicted that proportions of carbon fiber used in aviation and aerospace, sports and leisure, and industry will be respectively 6%, 44% and 50% in 2020.
In 2016, the volume and value of imported carbon fiber in China was approximately 2,780 tonnes and approximately RMB52 million, rising by 57.5% and 38.3% respectively. China mainly imported carbon fiber from Japan and USA.
In the policy Made in China 2025 issued by the State Council, carbon fiber is listed as one of key strategy materials and in 2020 the consumption of the material manufactured by domestic enterprises should increase to above 4,000 tonnes. There exists high potential demand for carbon fiber, providing the material great improvement space. For the next several years, the usage of the material may increase at a large scale. In 2022, the apparent consumption of the material is predicted to reach 11,900 tonnes.
