Laser Technology Market by Type (Solid, Liquid, Gas), Application (Optical Communication, Laser Processing), and Vertical and Geography - Analysis & Forecast to 2022
“Need for security & protective measures drive the aramid fiber market”
The market size of aramid fiber is estimated to have been USD 2.99 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 5.07 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.9% between 2016 and 2021. The market is largely driven by the increased demand from end-use industries. In addition, the rising concern for the safety of the industrial workers increases the demand for aramid fiber, globally.
“Para-aramid fiber to dominate the market”
The demand for para-aramid fiber is driven by the increased demand from various sectors such as security & protection, automotive, aerospace, and optical fiber due to its high mechanical strength and abrasion resistance. Moreover, they are used in braking systems, chassis of coaches, and the interiors for reducing weight among other applications.
However, meta-aramid fiber is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. This is because of increased demand from security & protection and electrical insulation applications.
“Security & protection application segment to capture the largest share of the aramid fiber market”
In the security & protection application segment, aramid fibers are used to make fire-, cut-, and stab-resistant protective clothing such as helmets, footwear, coveralls, and gloves. They are used for military, industrial, and civil purposes. The need for thermal and ballistic protection is rising within the civil law enforcement and armed forces due to the increasing war-like situations and terrorist activities. The market is being driven by stringent regulations in developed economies such as European countries and the U.S. In developing economies, on the other hand, growing concern for employee health & safety is driving the demand for aramid fiber, in the form of protective clothing.
The growing concern for safety of the industrial workers is the key factor driving the aramid fiber market in security & protection application.
