Thrust on Fuel Efficient Cars Drives up Demand in Global Carbon Fiber Market 

At the forefront of driving demand in the global carbon fiber market is the surging demand and sales of fuel-efficient vehicles. Besides, carbon fibers are also finding usage in wind turbines with demand for green energy rising. Carbon fiber is highly preferred since they are light weight and hence can improve speed and efficiency. Besides, the tensile strength of carbon fibers enables the wind turbine to survive even in bad weather. Thus it is increasingly supplanting metal for building wind turbines and cars. It makes cars fuel efficient.

A noticeable trend in the global carbon fiber market is the usage of the product in 3D printing. This would likely create new growth opportunities in the market going forward. Some of the main technologies used in the market are prepreg layup process, filament winding pultrusion process, and injection molding.

High Production Cost Poses Headwinds to Market 

A challenge facing the global carbon fiber market on the other hand is the high cost of production which makes the final products expensive. This is hampering sales to an extent. "Small-scale businesses, in particular, are not being able to afford them," states our lead analyst. Besides, once damaged, carbon fibers cannot be fixed easily. This means they would have to be discarded. This is another reason why the market is running into headwinds.

The review is based on the findings of a TMR report, titled, "Carbon Fiber Market (Product - PAN-based, PITCH-based; Technology - Prepreg Layup, Pultrusion, Filament Winding, Press and Injection Molding; Application - Automotive and Transportation, Construction, Aerospace and Defense, Sports and Leisure, Marine and Oil & Gas, Wind Energy) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018-2026."
