The global carbon fiber market is estimated to grow during the forecast period (2017-2023) owing to the increase in demand of lightweight materials in end use industries such as sporting goods, aerospace and industrial applications. Additionally, the rise in the carbon fiber market is driven by the growing wind energy industry.
Carbon fiber is a long thin strand of material composed of carbon atoms with a diameter of about 0.005mm to 0.010mm. Carbon atoms are bonded into microscopic crystals that are aligned parallel to long axis of the fiber. Carbon fiber offers strength, low specific gravity, modulus of elasticity, high corrosion resistance and can be molded into different shapes and size. These fibers are used in several applications such as aircraft and spacecraft parts, racing car chassis, bicycle frame, fishing rods and automobile spring where lightweight and high strength is needed.
