Opportunities for the global CFRP market to reach $32.0 billion by 2024

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) market looks attractive with opportunities in the automotive, pressure vessel, and wind energy industries. The global CFRP market is expected to reach an estimated $32.0 billion by 2024 with a CAGR of 4.3% from 2019 to 2024. The major drivers for this market are growing demand for high performance and lightweight composite materials and increasing performance requirements in the various end use industries.
In this market, aerospace will remain the largest end use industry by value. Automotive is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to the increasing demand for high performance lightweight materials.
Within this market, epoxy, phenolic, vinylester, polyester, PEEK, PPS, PEI, and PA are the major resin systems used for manufacturing CFRP products. Epoxy based CFRP will remain the largest segment by value and volume and PPS is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecasted period.
By process, prepreg layup, RTM, compression molding, injection molding, filament winding and pultrusion are the major CFRP manufacturing process. Prepreg layup will remain the largest segment by value and volume and RTM is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period.
North America will remain the largest region by value and volume due to the growth in automotive and aerospace industries in the US and government regulations on energy efficient product with less CO2 emission. APAC is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the development of technologies to reduce the manufacturing costs of carbon fiber as well as part fabrication and reuse of CFRP is another emerging trend as it recycled carbon fiber reduces cost of product and environmental impact.
Toray Industries Inc., Mitsubishi Rayon Corporation, Teijin Limited, Hexcel Corporation, SGL Group, and Cytec Solvay Group are among the major CFRP manufacturers
