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 Investment Chapter

The Carbon Fiber and Graphene Manufacturing industry has a medium level of capital intensity. For every dollar spent on labor, the industry spends an estimated $0.20 on capital, which indicates that many processes are automated. In order to produce carbon fiber from polyacrylonitrile (and other precursors) and to form composites from these materials, industry operators must have access to a wide range of highly specialized machinery and lab equipment. Due to the industry's high level of technological change, this equipment has a short life span, as continual technological breakthroughs in carbon fiber and graphene manufacturing techniques quickly make previous production methods obsolete... purchase to read more
