Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
During the five years to 2014, the Carbon Fiber and Graphene Manufacturing industry grew as economic conditions improved and demand for carbon fiber products increased. In addition, aircraft manufacturers have steadily increased the carbon fiber content of planes and jets in an effort to reduce their weight and boost their fuel efficiency, thus supporting revenue growth. In the five years to 2019, revenue is forecast to increase. Downstream manufacturers will increase purchases of carbon fiber as production expands and demand for stronger, yet lighter products continues to rise. Furthermore, government consumption and investment is expected to increase, boosting industry sales.... purchase to read more
Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter
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 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
