The Worldwide Aramid Fiber Industry is Expected to Reach $6.3 Billion by 2026


Dublin, April 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Worldwide Aramid Fiber Industry" report has been added to's offering.

The aramid fiber market is projected to reach USD 6.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.7% from USD 3.9 billion in 2021. The increased demand for lightweight and flexible materials from the automotive and military & defense industries for various applications is driving the market.

Furthermore, the regulations relating to reducing carbon emissions compel several industry players to look for alternative materials that are lightweight, strong, and fuel-efficient. This is expected to drive the aramid fiber market further during the forecast period. On the contrary, the high R&D costs and the non-biodegradable nature of aramid fibers are restraining the market growth.

The para-aramid fiber is the largest type of aramid fiber for aramid fiber market in 2020

Para-aramid fiber is primarily used in security & protection applications. The increased need for protective clothing in the military and industrial sectors is estimated to drive the para-aramid fiber market. However, meta-aramid fiber is estimated to witness substantial growth during the forecast period because of its increased usage in industrial filtration applications.

Security & protection is estimated to be the largest application of aramid fiber market between 2021 and 2026.

The security & protection application segment led the market in 2020. It is projected to maintain its leading position until 2026 because of the increasing demand from emerging economies such as China, Brazil, and India. They are primarily used for military, industrial, and civil purposes-the need for thermal and ballistic protection is rising in civil law enforcement and armed forces owing to increasing insurgency and terrorism.

Europe is expected to be the largest aramid fiber market during the forecast period, in terms of value.

Europe is the largest market for aramid fiber. Stringent safety regulations within industries such as oil & gas, construction, aluminum, and steel are fueling the demand for protective clothing, which is driving the aramid fiber market in Europe. Additionally, friction materials are required for high-end automotive as well as in other industrial sectors that also contribute to the growing aramid fiber market in the region.
