The global carbon fiber in aerospace and defense market is expected to reach $1.6 billion by 2025


   January 16, 2020
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global carbon fiber in aerospace and defense market looks attractive with opportunities in the commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, and UAVs. The global carbon fiber in aerospace and defense market is expected to reach an estimated $1.6 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are increasing demand for high-performance lightweight materials in the aerospace / defense industry and growing production of advanced aircraft models with high composites content.

In this market, carbon fiber composite are used in the commercial aerospace, regional jets, helicopters, military aircraft, and UAVs . Lucintel forecasts that commercial aerospace will be the largest segment supported by the demand for lightweight materials in aircraft programs, such as Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. Carbon fiber for UAV is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to the increasing demand Unmanned Arial Vehicles for surveillance and growing use of lightweight materials in its development.

Based on the type of precursor, the carbon fiber market in aerospace and defense industry can be segmented into two types: Polyacrylonitrile-based (PAN-based) and pitch-based. PAN-based carbon fiber usage is higher by value and volume because it is lower in cost than pitch-based.

By tow size, small tow (less than 24k) is expected to remain the largest segment by volume and witness the highest growth over the forecast period because its mainly use in the aerospace industry owing to high tensile strength. By modulus, standard modulus is expected to remain the largest segment by volume over the forecast period.

North America is expected to remain the largest region during the forecast period. The growth of carbon fiber in North American aerospace & defense market is driven by increasing carbon fiber content and growth of aircraft deliveries of B787 and B777.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the Increasing demand of continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics and growing initiatives for recycling of carbon fiber.
