The global carbon fiber tape market size is expected to reach USD 4.4 billion by 2027, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.0% during the forecast period. Carbon fiber tape is flat material made by carbon fiber and for a given strength it weighs about one-seventh of the steel. Carbon fiber tape is used for sleeve winding, lap joining, repairs of cracks and selective reinforcement of carbon fiber fabrication in a variety of end-use industries, including aerospace & defense, marine, pipe & tank, construction & infrastructure, and sporting goods. Increasing demand from these end-use industries is driving the market.
Companies operating in the carbon fiber tape market have strengthened their position in the global carbon fiber tape market by adopting expansions, partnerships, agreements, new product/technology launches, joint ventures, contracts, and mergers & acquisitions from 2018-2022. For instance, in April 2018, Solvay launched Evolite F1050, a high-performance PVDF carbon fiber composite tape for demanding oil & gas applications. However, the novel coronavirus pandemic has created ripples across the global aerospace, marine, pipe & tanks, and many other sectors, affecting the global supply chains. This factor have affected the demand for carbon fiber tape. The demand is expected to recover bounce and picking up momentum by 2022.
