Growth Opportunities in the Chinese Carbon Fiber Market 2016-2021

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the Chinese carbon fiber marketlooks good, with opportunities in the sporting goods, aerospace, and industrial applications. TheChinese carbon fiber market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% by value from 2016 to 2021. Themajor drivers of growth for this market are growing demand of high strength, stiffness, and lightweightmaterial in end uses industries.

In this market, sporting goods, aerospace, and industrial applications are the end use applications ofcarbon fiber. Lucintel predicts that the demand for industrial application is expected to experience thehighest growth in the forecast period, supported by growing wind energy market and increase demandof light weight material in automotive and CNG tank.

Within the Chinese carbon fiber market, sporting goods is expected to remain as the largest market byvalue and volume consumption. Country’s active involvement in sports leads increased used in icehockey stick, tennis racquets, and golf clubs. High- strength, stiffness, and lightweight are theproperties that will drive the growth of carbon fiber in sporting goods application.

In China, only PAN (polyacrylonitrile)-based carbon fiber is used. Based on tow size, small tow carbonfiber usage is higher in value and volume, whereas based on modulus type, intermediate moduluscarbon fiber is higher in value and volume.

For market expansion, this report suggests innovation and new product development, where the uniquecharacteristics of carbon fiber can be capitalized. The report further suggests the development ofpartnerships with customers to create win-win situations and development of high performanceproducts for the end use industries.
