The Asia Pacific Carbon fiber market is accounted to US$ 988.2 Mn in 2018 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account for US$ 2,794.8 Mn by 2027.

 

Japan is dominating the Asia pacific carbon fiber market, followed by China. The market for carbon fiber in Japan is increasing due to the dense presence of the automobile industry and the electronics industry. Japan is considered a few of the leading car producers in the world. The domestic sales of vehicles in Japan has increased with the increase in production capacities and a surge in export. Thus, the robust automotive foothold of the automotive industry and an increase in production and export of vehicles is expected to deliver substantial growth opportunity for the growth of the carbon fiber market. The demand for carbon fiber is expanding in a wide range of applications and especially in the manufacturing of automotive components. Manufacturers are interested in producing aircraft and automobiles.

Market Insights

Increasing usage of carbon fiber in wind energy industry

Increasing demand to utilize renewable resources has led to an upsurge for the installation and demand for wind farms, with wide tracts of land and coastal areas devoted to the operation of wind turbines. The wind turbine manufacturers strive to produce more efficient and longer blades. Advanced composite materials such as carbon fiber is an upcoming component for the construction of wind turbines, specifically the blades. The companies operating in the market have discovered that the longer the blades are on a turbine, the more energy can be generated. The carbon fiber plays a vital role in the wind energy industry. Large blades are typically designed by stiffness and deflection, rather than taking into consideration the material strength. The high stiffness characteristic of carbon fiber lowers the blade deflection, allowing a larger tower diameter for a given blade-to-tower clearance. Carbon fiber is added in the spar cap, which is known to be the backbone of the blade.

 

Precursors Insights

Based on precursor, the Asia Pacific carbon fiber market is bifurcated as PAN-based and pitch. Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) contains ~68% of carbon and is one of the most widely used precursors in carbon fiber manufacturing. PAN is polymerized from acrylonitrile (AN) by the commonly used, inhibitory azo compounds and peroxides through the polymerization process. Suspension polymerization and solution polymerization are the two major types of this process. The solution polymerization is the preferred method as the PAN solution that is produced can be directly used as a fiber spinning dope on the removal of unreacted monomers. To produce PAN with higher molecular weights, the solvent needs to have a low chain transfer coefficient.

                                                                            

Form Insights

The Asia Pacific Carbon fiber market is bifurcated based on form into composite and non-composite. The carbon fiber reinforced polymers are advanced composite materials that are used in a wide variety of applications from the sports equipment to the aerospace and automotive sector. Carbon fibers, when bound with plastic polymer resin, produce a composite material that is durable, extremely strong and lightweight that can be used in various forms including tubes, tows and fabrics. The steady decrease in the prices, coupled with the availability of multiple carbon fibers and polymer matrix materials have helped the carbon fiber polymer composite materials to achieve an essential position in the Asia Pacific market. Epoxy is the most commonly used carbon fiber composite material. Thermoplastic resin, polyimide, polysulfone and polyester are also used on a large scale. The carbon fiber composite materials bear excellent electrical and thermal conductivity.

 

End-use Industry Insights

The Asia Pacific carbon fiber market is bifurcated based on end-use industry into automotive, aerospace and defense, construction, sporting goods, wind energy and others. The aerospace and defense segment accounted for the largest share in the Asia Pacific Carbon fiber market. The development and use of carbon fiber have revolutionized the aerospace and defense industries. The carbon fiber composite materials provide high-performance and lightweight features to meet rigorous industry standards. The carbon fibers help in delivering enormous benefits to the aerospace and defense industry. The carbon fibers help in reducing fuel consumption and reduce the weight of the aircraft. The carbon fiber composites also provide durability and toughness to the aircraft. The carbon fiber composites help in providing improved fatigue and help in decreasing the maintenance cost of the aircraft. The high modulus of carbon fiber composite makes it structurally suitable in the production of aircraft and has the potential to replace the alloys such as titanium and aluminum. The carbon fibers provide advantages such as high resistance to fatigue, low thermal expansion, corrosion resistance, low microwave and radar absorption and higher stiffness to weight ratio.
