Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for carbon fiber with a share of about 35% and is expected to remain at the top for the forecast period. The Japanese carbon fiber market has taken a huge leap forward in the last year; not only has its largest player grown bigger, but Japan has also been responsible for some technology breakthroughs. It covers a share of about 20% of the global production capacity for carbon fiber.
Carbon fiber is a material consisting of thin, strong crystalline filaments of a few microns of carbon atoms, which are the strengthening element. Carbon fiber finds its usage as a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) component in various industries. CFRP is a composite material, consisting of various carbon fibers and thermosetting resins. Carbon fiber and/or CFRPs main application segments include aerospace & defense, wind energy, automobile, sports equipment, marine, civil, and molding & compound. Carbon fiber is also utilized in bulk for the production of industrial components used in the electronic and pharmaceutical industry.
