Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
Demand for the industry has been volatile in the past five years as downstream customers reduced production and required less carbon fiber. As the economy began to recover, demand from end-users like aircraft and automobile manufacturers increased, boosting demand for industry products. In the next five years, revenue is anticipated to rise as downstream manufacturing industries expand production and the federal government increases funding for carbon fiber and graphene research.... purchase to read more

The Carbon Fiber and Graphene Manufacturing industry is on the rise, with a number of downstream industries increasingly turning to carbon fiber as an input in manufacturing products such as aircraft, automobiles and wind turbines. Carbon fiber contains a minimum 90.0% of carbon obtained by the controlled pyrolysis of relevant fibers, according to research from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Carbon fiber, like graphite, can be used for reinforcement.
The Carbon Fiber and Graphene Manufacturing industry generates its revenue primarily from carbon fiber. Graphene, which was fully discovered in 2004 by a research team at the University of Manchester, is an intermediate material that can be used in manufacturing various products, including electronics (e.g. transistors)... purchase to read more
