Global Green Carbon Fiber Market Recent Developments:

  • New product launches: Several companies have launched new green carbon fiber products in recent years. For example, in 2020, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation introduced a new green carbon fiber material made from bio-based feedstocks. This material has a lower carbon footprint than traditional carbon fiber and is expected to be used in a range of industries.
  • Collaborations and partnerships: To accelerate the development and adoption of green carbon fiber, many companies are partnering with each other. In 2021, for example, Teijin Limited and Applied Electric Vehicles (Applied EV) announced a partnership to develop lightweight automotive components made from green carbon fiber.
  • Investments and funding: The green carbon fiber market is attracting significant investment and funding. In 2020, for example, Carbon Clean Solutions, a company that produces green carbon fiber from captured carbon dioxide, raised $22.7 million in a funding round led by Chevron Technology Ventures.
  • Government initiatives: Governments around the world are introducing initiatives to support the development and adoption of green carbon fiber. In 2021, the European Union launched a program to support the development of sustainable aviation fuels and materials, including green carbon fiber.
  • Advancements in technology: Advancements in technology are making it easier and more cost-effective to produce green carbon fiber. For example, in 2021, researchers at MIT developed a new process for producing carbon fiber from lignin, a waste product from the paper and pulp industry. This process has the potential to significantly reduce the cost and environmental impact of producing green carbon fiber.

The green carbon fiber market in Europe is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The automotive industry is growing significantly across various countries in Europe. According to the report by European Commission, turnover generated by the automotive industry in Europe represents 7% of the region’s total GDP. According to the 2022 report by International Energy Agency, the number of electric vehicles sold in Europe was 2.3 million in 2021 (up from 1.4 million in 2020). Additionally, the European Union mandated that 85% of vehicle materials be recyclable. Thus, the growing automotive industry, along with government regulations regarding the usage of environment-friendly products, is propelling the green carbon fiber market growth.

Moreover, manufacturers are launching vehicles with recycled carbon fiber. SGL Group and BMW, two Germany-based companies, have established a joint venture named SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers GmbH & Co. KG. The company utilizes recycled carbon fiber in various automotive components. It has utilized recycled carbon fiber for the roof of the i3 electric drive and i8 plug-in hybrid cars. Furthermore, of the total CFRP parts used in the BMW I series, 10% are recycled carbon fiber.

Key Strategic Developments by Green Carbon Fiber Manufacturers to Provide Lucrative Growth Opportunities to Green Carbon Fiber Market Players:
The growing focus of market players on strategic activities such as collaborations and acquisitions is supporting the growth of the green carbon fibers market. For instance, in 2021, Procotex Corporation acquired ELG Carbon Fiber. With this acquisition, the company aims to produce improved carbon fiber and feedstock capacities. In December 2019, The Institute for Railway Research at the University of Huddersfield and ELG Carbon Fiber Ltd. (UK) collaborated to produce the world's first CAFIBO (carbon fiber bogie).

Green carbon fiber manufacturers use strategies such as collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, and expansions to stay competitive in the market. In 2020, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation acquired two Germany-based carbon fiber recycling companies, CFK Valley Stade Recycling GmbH & Co. K.G. (CFK) and carboNXT GmbH (carboNXT), through its subsidiary Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials AG. Hence, such strategic initiatives are expected to generate new opportunities for the green carbon fiber market growth over the forecast period.

Global Green Carbon Fiber Market: Segmental Overview
Based on type, the green carbon fiber market is bifurcated into chopper recycled carbon fiber and milled recycled carbon fiber. The milled recycled carbon fiber segment held a larger share of the market in 2022. Milled recycled carbon fiber is made by grinding chopped fiber into a powder (milled) form. The usual length of milled recycled carbon fiber is 80–100 micrometers. These fibers offer electrostatic dissipation and strength. It has short strands of recycled carbon fiber and is commonly available in powdered form.

Based on source, the green carbon fiber market is segmented into automotive scrap, aerospace scrap, and others. The automotive scrap segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Recycled carbon fibers can be obtained from ~40–60% scrap volume from manufacturing automotive carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP). Using recycled carbon fiber can help automotive manufacturers achieve more mileage from the vehicle. The demand for molding smaller automotive parts that can be made from fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP), natural fiber composites, and hybrids is expected to increase in the coming years. Further, carbon fiber reclaimed from automotive scrapped parts creates advanced materials. These materials are used to manufacture new, high-performance parts for aircraft and automobiles.
