Carbon Fiber Market

Toray Industries Inc., (Japan) and Hexcel Corporation (US) are Leading Players in the Carbon Fiber Market

The carbon fiber market is projected to grow from USD 7.1 billion in 2023 to USD 23.2 billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period. Carbon fiber is a material composed mostly of carbon atoms and is made up of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon. It is a polymer and is sometimes known as graphite fiber. Carbon fibers have a number of benefits, including high stiffness, high tensile strength, a high strength-to-weight ratio, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion. Carbon fiber is created through a chemical and mechanical process that begins with drawing long strands of fiber and then heating them to a very high temperature without oxygen. This is when carbonization occurs, which occurs when the atoms inside the fibers vibrate violently, expelling the majority of the non-carbon atoms. This results in a fiber that is made up of long, tightly interlocked chains of carbon atoms with only a few non-carbon atoms remaining. Carbon fiber is used in many processes to create excellent structural materials and offers a variety of benefits, including being five times stronger than steel and twice as stiff. Carbon fiber is favored in many industries, including aerospace, civil engineering, military, motorsports, and other competition sports.
