The North America carbon fiber market is accounted to US$ 1,157.8 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 2,872.5 Mn by 2027. 

Carbon fiber is defined as the long thin strand of material that is made up of carbon atoms possessing a diameter of about 0.005mm to 0.010mm. The fibers are rigid and chemically inert, making them difficult to compress and stretch. They provide high strength to the vessels, which helps to prevent the explosions of gas storage systems. They are used in several applications such as aerospace & defense, automotive, construction, and others. However, the high costs of carbon fiber manufacturing processes are limiting the market growth.

The US is dominating the North America carbon fiber market followed by Mexico. Increasing usage of carbon fiber in wind energy industry would drive the market in the coming years. The carbon fibers are considered to be an effective alternative to the glass fibers used in the wind turbines. They show higher stiffness and lower density as compared to the glass fibers, allowing the thinner, stiffer and lighter blades. Furthermore, they have relatively low damage tolerance, compressive strength, and ultimate strain. Therefore, carbon fibers are most commonly used in the fabrication of wind turbine blades.

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 North American 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 precursors, the North America carbon fiber market is bifurcated as PAN-based and pitch. The PAN-based segment dominated the North America 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.

                                                                       

Form Insights

The North America carbon fiber market is bifurcated based on form into composite and non-composite. The composite segment accounted for the largest share in the North America 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 North America market.

 

End-Use Industry Insights

The North America 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 North America 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 North America, which has significantly developed the aerospace industry. 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.
