Feb., 16, 2016, Mumbai, India: Market Reports on China presents the report, on “Global and China Carbon Fiber and CFRP Industry Report [2016-2020] ”. The global carbon fiber demand amounted to 59,000 tons in 2015. 22%, 62% and 16% of carbon fiber were applied to aerospace, industries, and sports & leisure respectively.

Carbon fiber is the new-generation reinforced fiber and made into carbon fiber composites (including the most widely used CFRP) by adding of resins, metals, ceramics, concrete and other materials, mainly used in the fields of aerospace, automobiles, wind power, pressure vessels, sports and leisure.

The global carbon fiber industrialized products center on PAN-based carbon fiber, which accounts for over 90% of the total output of carbon fiber. In 2015, the global capacity of PAN-based carbon fiber totaled about 142,000 tons, of which small-tow carbon fiber occupied about 70%.

The global carbon fiber capacity is mainly contributed by Japan, Europe and the United States. In 2015, the world's top five companies -- Toray, Teijin, SGL, Mitsubishi Rayon and Formosa Plastics shared 60% of the global carbon fiber capacity together; particularly, Toray's carbon fiber capacity attained 40,000 tons (including Zoltek's 13,000 tons), equivalent to 28% of the global total capacity.

The global carbon fiber demand amounted to 59,000 tons in 2015. 22%, 62% and 16% of carbon fiber were applied to aerospace, industries, and sports & leisure respectively. Specifically, the demand from industries grew fastest, especially from automobiles, wind power, pressure vessels and other market segments. By 2020, 72% of the global carbon fiber will be used in industries, of which 23% will be adopted by automobiles and 21% by wind power.

We take the automotive industry as an example: In the wake of automotive lightweight, more and more carbon fiber...
