With the increasing disposable income and globalization, there has been a significant rise in the demand for commercial aviation in the aerospace industry. The consumers are now becoming more health-conscious and are increasingly participating in various sports and physical activities. This has led to the application of carbon fiber in various sports and leisure equipment to capture the changing demands of the consumers. The combination of these factors is likely to attract a large number of end-users to opt for carbon fiber over the coming years. The increasing propylene production has surged the demand for polyacrylonitrile, which is a primary raw material for carbon fiber production. The accelerating number of R&D activities in the major regions is another factor responsible for the carbon fiber market growth. On the other edge of the spectrum, the COVID-19 outbreak has created huge uncertainty in the market, which is posing a negative trend for both the automotive market and the demand for carbon fiber. However, the market is projected to bounce back in 2021 while growing at a significant rate from 2022 onwards.

On the basis of raw material, the Pan-based carbon fiber segment is poised to grow at a higher CAGR over the forecast period. The increasing application of this carbon fiber in numerous sectors including automotive, sports & recreation, aerospace & defense, wind energy, and other industries, is the major factor driving the growth of the segment in the carbon fiber industry. This accelerated application is driven by the remarkable properties of Pan-based carbon fiber, such as high strength modulus, highly cost-effective, and produces a better quality of fiber. All these features will attract many end-users towards the adoption of Pan-Based carbon fiber.

Based on the End-use Industry, the Aerospace & defense end-use industry segment is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing production of aircraft, especially by Boeing and Airbus. These companies have experienced a surge in demand amounting to 9,000 new wide-bodied aircraft over the next 20 years. Due to these factors, there will be an increase in the demand for carbon fibers as well.

On the basis of the region, the Europe region is expected to dominate the carbon fiber market from 2020 to 2027. The market in this region is growing owing to the strong demand for materials having excellent strength, are lightweight, and corrosion resistance properties. Additionally, the large presence of electric car manufacturers and aircraft manufacturers, followed by the increasing number of offshore wind farm installations across the European countries will bring innumerable opportunities for the carbon fiber market growth. Various European countries are the home to the leading global automotive manufacturers such as Fiat, Bentley, and BMW. These manufacturers are increasingly using carbon fibers in different structural automotive parts including bonnets, frontends, and bumpers. All these factors are directly surging the demand of the market in this region.
