According to a report published by the publisher on carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) market, the automotive sector will generate a high demand for products made out of CFRP. Through this, the global CFRP market has been evaluated to attain a revenue of $15.24 billion by the end of 2023. This evaluation is reflective of the utilization of carbon fiber reinforced plastic worldwide which is known for its strength that is approximately ten times better than that of steel. Moreover, carbon fiber is resistant to corrosion caused by both alkaline and acidic substances. This has instigated a need for using carbon fiber reinforced plastic in the manufacture of automotive parts such as armor sleeves. Armor sleeves are a component used in electric motors that control the rotating assemblies which help in minimizing the eddy currents. Eddy currents are often linked with loss of power generated in a vehicle which is what makes them undesirable. With CFRP’s addition to the armor sleeves, they become extremely lightweight and efficient which has helped in the growth of the carbon fiber reinforced plastic in automotive armor sleeves market. This market has been evaluated to expand with a CAGR of 9.50% during the forecast period 2019-2025.
The subsequent increase in personal vehicles owing to augmented disposable incomes helped the carbon fiber reinforced plastic in automotive armor sleeves market in attaining a market revenue of $905 million in 2018. Automotive sales continue to persist despite carbon emissions because of the necessity for different modes of transportation. Passenger vehicles have also become increasingly prominent due to the perpetual growth of working class which needs a transportation mode every day. This application segmented has been calculated to grow with a healthy CAGR of 9.60% through to 2025.
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic in Automotive Armor Sleeves Market Growth Drivers:
Carbon Footprint Reduction
The rise in population and ensuing disposable income has increased the number of vehicles on road which is equivalent to humongous toxic gas emission in the atmosphere. For example, China, one of the leading manufacturers of automotive industry manufactured around 29 million vehicles in 2017 alone. The incessant production of cars is being called out by environmental conservationists around the world as it leads to a high emission of carbon dioxide which has made automotive companies solicit the use of CFRP in production of automotive parts. Governments around the world have released stringent regulations that order the automotive industries to invest more resources in environment-friendly parts that could assist in reducing emissions of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This has majorly contributed to the growth of the carbon fiber reinforced plastic in the automotive armor sleeves market.
