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

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

Concentration in the industry is high, with the top-four firms controlling about 78.3% of the market. The industry has such a high level of concentration due to its capital intensive nature, the high level of technical expertise required to manufacture carbon fiber and the large-scale nature of the majority of end-users of carbon fiber. Indeed, the industry's primary domestic market – commercial aviation and aerospace – is also very concentrated; large aerospace manufacturers prefer to deal with large carbon fiber manufacturers that have the capacity to meet their demand. Market share concentration is expected to increase over the next five years as the industry's largest players continue to expand their operations to meet global demand... purchase to read more
