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 Products Chapter

Carbon fiber can be segmented based on material properties (e.g. tensile strength), the type of precursor used or final heat treatment temperature. IBISWorld product segmentation is based on the type of precursor used in carbon fiber production. For a more detailed discussion on the manufacturing process, see the Technology and Systems section.

Polyacrylonitrile carbon fiber

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) carbon fibers are made from PAN precursor. This type of carbon fiber constitutes the overwhelming majority of carbon fiber on the market, due to its advantageous structural properties... purchase to read more
