High Performance Fiber market set to grow according to forecasts

Stratview Research announces the launch of a new research report on Global High Performance Fiber Market by Fiber Type (Aramid Fiber, Carbon Fiber, Glass Fiber, PBI Fiber, High Strength PE Fiber, PPS Fiber, Others), by End Use Industry (Aerospace & Defense, Sporting Goods, Automotive, Medical, Wind Energy, Oil & Gas, Building & Construction, Electrical & Electronics, Non-Woven, Filtration, and Others), by Form of Use (Polymer Composites and Non-Polymer Composites), by Sales Channel (Direct Sales and Distributors), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2016 – 2021

High Performance Fiber Market: Highlight

The demand of lightweight products at superior strength is the core requirement in the high performance industries, such as aerospace and defense. Similarly, the strict government regulations in the automotive industry, such as CAFÉ standard are putting pressure on OEMs to curb the overall vehicle weight to achieve high fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emission.

These are some of the factors compelling OEMs to develop products leveraging high performance fibers in the structural applications, such as aircraft fuselage & wings, automotive monocoque, wind blades, and ballistic armor. High performance fibers include carbon fiber (PAN and Pitch), aramid fiber (Meta and Para), S-glass fiber, Polybenzimidazole (PBI) Fiber, High-Strength PE Fiber, Boron fiber, and Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) Fiber.

The high performance fiber market offers a healthy growth opportunity and is likely to grow at a 9.2% CAGR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Carbon fiber is likely to drive the global high performance fibers market mainly driven by increasing penetration in the automotive, aerospace & defense, and wind energy segments.

High impact resistance, high specific strength and modulus, excellent corrosion resistance and fatigue resistance are the major drivers of high performance fibers market.
