The aramid fiber market is estimated to have been USD 2.99 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 5.07 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.9% between 2016 and 2021. In this study, 2014 has been considered as the historical year, 2015 as the base year, and 2016 to 2021 as forecast period for estimating market size of aramid fiber. The global aramid fiber market has been segmented based on type, application, and region. Para-aramid is expected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the overall aramid fiber market owing to its unique properties, which makes it suitable for use in a wide range of applications. The demand for aramid fiber in security & protection application is increasing rapidly, thereby driving the aramid fiber market.

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for each product type (para-aramid, meta-aramid, and others) for various regions (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa) is identified through both secondary and primary research. The overall aramid fiber market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual markets. The aramid fiber market has been further segmented based on application, using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGRs) trends of the aramid fiber, the application industries – security & protection, frictional materials, tire reinforcement, rubber reinforcement, optical fiber, electrical insulation, aerospace, and others have been analyzed. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and other executives. The breakdown of profiles of the primary interviewees is illustrated in the below figure:

The aramid fiber market is projected to reach USD 5.07 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.9% between 2016 and 2021.

The global aramid fiber market is driven by increased demand from end-use industries such as automotive, security & protection, and optical fiber. The increasing concern for the safety of the military personnel is also the key factor supporting the growth of the aramid fiber market.

Para-aramid is the fastest-growing type of aramid fiber. The rising demand from end-use industries is driving the market for para-aramid fiber. The demand for para-aramid fiber is estimated to increase, as these fibers are preferred for their ultra-high strength due to their highly oriented and rigid molecular structure. Due to their properties, they are highly preferred in security & protection application. The increased demand for protective apparels such as helmets, bulletproof vests, and vehicle armor are driving the para-aramid fiber market.

Optical fiber is the fastest-growing application of aramid fiber. The growing need for strong and durable optical fiber cables from the internet and telecommunication sector are driving the market for aramid fiber. Security & protection is the largest application of aramid fiber. This is due to the rising concern for the protection of the militants and industrial workers. The aramid fiber market is also witnessing innovation and expansion of operations by the major market players.

Europe is the largest aramid fiber market and is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing demand for protective clothing in the region. The regulations in the region mandate the use of protective clothing in various end-use industries. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for aramid fiber, in terms of volume. Growing industrialization and infrastructure development in the region offer enormous opportunities for the use of aramid fiber. China is the largest market in the region owing to increasing activities adopted by the players in China. The growth in personal protection equipment and automotive industries is projected to increase the demand for aramid fibers in the region.

Aramid Fiber Market

However, the high cost of production and the requirement of huge investments for R&D acts as a restraint for the market.

The competitiveness of the aramid fiber market is continuously increasing with innovative and new product launches. Strategic developments are mostly undertaken by major players such as E. I. DuPont Nemours & Co. (U.S.), Teijin Limited (Japan), Yantai Tayho Advanced Materials Co. (China), and Toray Chemical South Korea Inc. (South Korea). It acquired U.S.-based Tensylon producer of UHMWPE tapes and expanded its product portfolio for the military and law enforcement industries. The company expanded its manufacturing capabilities for Kevlar in the U.S. to meet the growing demand for advanced materials in the global emerging industries.
