The Europe carbon fiber market is accounted to US$ 724.5 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 1,669.1 Mn by 2027.

 

France is dominating the Europe carbon fiber market followed by the Rest of Europe. Increasing demands for carbon-fiber for automotive and aerospace and defense application would drive the market in the coming years. Also, the increasing production of supercars or high-premium sports cars in Europe has led to rising requirements of carbon fiber, thereby driving the European market growth. The European government regulations mandating the reduction in harmful gas emissions, and lowering of vehicle weights are driving the market for carbon fibers. The carbon fiber, due to their low weight and high strength, are widely adopted in the mass production of vehicles in Europe. The Euro 6 regulations are also likely to boost the adoption of the carbon fiber during the forecast period.

Market Insights

Rising demands from automotive and aerospace applications

As carbon fibers offer high modulus and fatigue strength, specific strength, pressure-withstanding and ceuropeity stiffness; corrosion resistance; lower thermal expansion coefficient; and other beneficial properties, these are being widely used in the automotive and other industrial applications. These fibers are widely preferred to be better than aluminum and steel. Also, the increasing demands of lightweight materials, along with government initiatives such as CARS 2020 Action Plan, GEAR 2030, etc. Also, Horizon 2020 by EU focuses on providing funds for R&D on automotive by launching programs such as European Green Vehicles Initiative and programs on 'Road Transport, ‘Factories of the Future' and 'Logistics.', are projected to drive the market for carbon fiber in automotive applications. The carbon fibers are also used for transporting and storing liquefied and compressed natural gas in automotive applications, with major demands from Europe.                          

 

Precursors Insights

Based on precursors, the Europe carbon fiber market is bifurcated as PAN-based and pitch. The PAN-based segment dominated the Europe carbon fiber market. The presence of linear nitrile groups results in a robust intermolecular interaction in linear PAN that leads to having a high melting point, which results in the degradation before the temperature reaches the melting point. The rising demand for carbon fiber in the industrial applications has led to an upsurge to the manufacturing and production of PAN as it is one of the most widely used precursors. The PAN polymerization is run either as a continuous process or as a batch process. A continuous process is used to produce PAN with relatively wide molecular weight distribution whereas a continuous process is used for a large-scale production.

 

Form Insights

The Europe carbon fiber market is bifurcated based on form into composite and non-composite. The composite segment accounted for the largest share in the Europe carbon fiber market. 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 Europe market. The characteristic properties like corrosion resistance, high stiffness, low thermal induction, and other properties have played an important role in the expansion of the composite material market in the European market.

 

End-Use Industry Insights

The Europe carbon fiber market is bifurcated based on the end-use industry into automotive, aerospace and defense, construction, sporting goods, wind energy, and others. The aerospace & defense segment accounted for the highest share in the Europe carbon fiber market. The French economy is dominated by machinery, aircraft, chemical, and automotive, among others. The production volume is continuously growing, attributing to the demand from the French as well as international customers. Additionally, France is one of the leading countries in Europe, which has significantly developed the aerospace industry. The aerospace industry in this country is influenced by the European Defense, aeronautical, and Space Company. Moreover, several research and development initiatives by the government for the growth in the aerospace industry is further expected to flourish the market for carbon fiber in the country.

Strategic Insights

New product development, market initiatives and merger and acquisition were observed as the most adopted strategies in Europe carbon fiber market. Few of the recent developments in the Europe Carbon fiber market are listed below:

 

2018: SGL Carbon declared that it started serial production of an innovative carbon fiber in order expand its material portfolio

2017: Solvay completed the acquisition of European Carbon Fiber GmbH (“ECF”). ECF is a German producer of high-quality “precursor” for large-tow (50K) Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) carbon fibers. With the help of this acquisition, Solvay is aiming to build the foundations to lead the adoption of composites in automotive applications, to serve select industrial markets, and to support the potential adoption of large-tow fibers in aerospace.
