Carbon Fiber Global Market Report 2022: Stringent Eco-Friendly Regulations to Drive Adoption of Carbon Fibers and Related Composites in Automotive Applications

Dublin, Jan. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Carbon Fiber Market by Raw Material Type (Pan, Pitch), Fiber Type (Virgin, Recycled), Modulus (Standard, Intermediate, High), Product Type (Continuous, Long, Short), Application (Composites, Non-Composites), End-use Industry, Region - Global Forecast to 2032" report has been added to's offering.

The carbon fiber market is projected to grow from USD 6.5 Billion in 2022 to USD 11.9 Billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 13.0% during the forecast period and USD 21.7 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 12.9% during the forecasted period.

The market is driven by factors like the stringent eco-friendly regulations & rising popularity of 3d printing, Carbon fiber is being extensively deployed in the automotive industry for the creation of 3D-printed car parts.

In terms of volume, Standard Modulus-based carbon fiber accounted for the largest share of the overall carbon fiber market.

In terms of volume, the by modulus type segment of carbon fiber based on Standard Modulus-based carbon fiber accounted for 60.3% of the overall carbon fiber market in 2021. On the other hand, owing to its low cost and the large number of applications, standard modulus carbon fibers are in high demand from the wind energy industry and are growing at a much faster rate compared to the other grades.

During the forecast period, the carbon fiber market in Pipe & Tank industry is expected to register the highest CAGR.

Pipe & Tank industry is the most important end-use industry for carbon fiber. During the forecast period, the carbon fiber market in Pipe & Tank industry has the highest 20% CAGR. Owing to the high focus on reducing carbon footprint, there is increasing demand from CNG and hydrogen tank manufacturers. This is expected to drive the market for PAN-based carbon fibers in the pipe & tank industry.

During the forecast period, the carbon fiber market in Europe is projected to register the highest CAGR.

Europe dominated the global market for carbon fiber. Many manufacturers of carbon fiber and their products are present in the region. Germany held a significant share of the global carbon fiber market and is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. The growing automotive and aerospace & defense are driving the growth of the carbon fiber market in this region.
