Carbon Fiber & Graphene Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Carbon Fiber & Graphene Manufacturing

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.

This industry manufactures graphene, carbon fiber and other advanced carbon-based materials. The main product made by this industry is PAN-based carbon fiber, which is then used to make carbon fiber composites that have excellent strength-to-weight ratios and durability. Key applications for these products include aerospace, automotive, alternative energy and high-tech electronics.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
