Composite form comprises a major share of the carbon fiber market in terms of value

Composite form of carbon fiber is used in various industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods, pipe & tank, civil engineering, marine, and others. Carbon fiber offer high strength, rigidity, high tensile strength, and so on.

On account of these properties, it is used in these end-use industries.

Continuous carbon fiber is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global carbon fiber market during the forecast period

Continuous carbon fibers offer higher tensile strength compared to other types of carbon fiber products. These fibers can be used in layup, weaving, prepregging, filament winding, braiding, and pultrusion processes for manufacturing composites parts for various end-use industries such aerospace & defense, automotive, and wind energy.

Continuous carbon fiber are also used in the 3D printing industry as it offers stiffness and strength.
