SiC Fibers Market by Type (Continious\Long Fibers, Chopped\Short Fibers and Others), Application (Aerospace, Power Generation, Nuclear Application and Others), and by Region - Forecast to 2021

SiC Fibers Market by Type (Continious\Long Fibers, Chopped\Short Fibers and Others), Application (Aerospace, Power Generation, Nuclear Application and Others), and by Region - Forecast to 2021

The global SiC fibers market is projected to reach USD 510.28 million by 2021, registering a CAGR of 2.91% from 2016 to 2021. The market is witnessing a moderate growth owing to increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand for these high-performance fibers in Asia-Pacific and North America. SC fibers are largely used in aerospace applications. The rapid growth of the market is driven by technological advancement in the aerospace, nuclear, and power generation industries.


“Continuous/long fibers to have the largest share between 2016 and 2021”
Continuous/long fibers are projected to witness the highest growth in the SiC fibers market. The continuous fibers are also known as tow. SiC continuous fibers are used as reinforcement materials for ceramic composites materials (CMC) and plastic composite materials (PMC). These fibers possess high strength, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance, even in extreme conditions. Through composite reinforcement, SiC fibers provide improved performance opportunities to ceramic, plastic, and metal (CMC, PMC, and MMC) matrices.

“North America: The largest market for SiC fibers”
North America accounted for the largest share in the SiC fibers market in 2015. The U.S. is a prominent player in this market. All major applications, including aerospace, nuclear application, power generation, chemical, and petrochemicals are expected to use SiC fibers in the next five years. The demand for SiC fibers from these applications are expected to increase after 10 years.
