In this market, SMC, LFT, SFT, Prepreg and RTM and other thermoset are used for carbon fiber in automotive manufacturing for material. Lucintel forecasts that the carbon fiber textile is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume due to increasing demand in automotive exterior applications.

Within this market, exterior will remain the largest application by value and volume due to increasing usage of carbon fiber in hood, fender, panel, roof, front end module, and wind shield. Lucintel predicts that the demand for carbon fiber in chassis application is expected to experience the highest growth in the forecast period.

Europe is expected to remain the largest market and witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to the increasing production of luxury and sports car. Government regulations, such as CAFE Standards in the US and carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to reduce the vehicle weight.
