According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) market size reached US$ 18.9 Billion in 2022. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) is an advanced lightweight composite material that is produced from the infusion of polymer resin and carbon fiber reinforcement. The blend of these components helps in providing additional strength, stiffness, toughness, and a cohesive matrix, which protects or holds the fibers. As compared to conventional plastics, CFRP is more durable and provides exceptional specific tensile strength and impact and fatigue resistance. As a result, it is extensively employed in diverse industrial applications in manufacturing aircraft and automotive components, helmets, wind turbine blades, and construction plates. Apart from this, CFRP offers better elasticity than steel and possesses multiple structural properties; therefore, it finds extensive applications in fabricating high-performance drone bodies, carbon woven fabrics, musical instruments, tripod legs, tent poles, fishing rods, and billiards cues.
Global Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) Market Trends:
The global carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) market is primarily driven by the escalating product demand from the automotive industry owing to its various beneficial properties, including the high strength-to-weight ratio and greater load-bearing capacity. Such materials are substantially lighter than steel; thus, they are frequently employed to manufacture multiple automobile components, including panels, fenders, deck lids, bumper beams, dashboards, and other under-the-hood parts. Moreover, the implementation of favorable green government initiatives to promote the uptake of lightweight electric vehicles (EVs), owing to rising environmental concerns, have prompted manufacturers to design fuel-efficient automobiles with CRPF to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which is favoring the market growth. Additionally, the extensive utilization of CFRP in the aerospace industry during the production of aircraft structures, due to its mechanical properties and ability to reduce fuel consumption, is propelling the market growth. Besides this, the escalating need for renewable energy sources has encouraged the widespread CFRP incorporation as a structural component in spars and wind turbine blades as they offer higher stiffness while a maintaining lower density of CF this, in turn, is positively influencing the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 28.0 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2023-2028.
