Specialty Fibers Shaping the Future
High performance organic fibers are generally characterized by
their outstanding tensile strength and stiffness, as well as
resistance to heat, fire, and chemical agents that normally degrade
conventional fibers. Applications include use in aerospace,
biomedical, civil engineering, construction, protective apparel,
geotextiles, and electronics.
Carbon fibers are used primarily as reinforcing agents in high-performance composites with synthetic resin matrices such as epoxies, polyimides, vinyl esters, phenolics, and certain thermoplastics. Major advances in technology and processing have dramatically expanded the demand for high-performance carbon fibers. The introduction of higher-volume and lower-cost fibers and gains in productivity have reduced the manufacturing costs of carbon fibers.
With 20+ types of specialty fibers and a $14 Billion market share, what is the world production breakdown of specialty organic fibers?
In this market, you need to have visibility into which regions of the world are adding new production capacity, which market segments will grow in which region, and what does regional consumption look like.
