U.S. Market for Advanced Structural Carbon Products 2014-2023: Analysis & Forecasts by Fibers, Foams and Composites - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 30, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 30, 2018--The “The U.S. Market for Advanced Structural Carbon Products: Fibers, Foams and Composites” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report covers technological, economic and business conditions in the structural carbons industry. Included in this report are descriptions of market forces relevant to the structural carbons industry and their areas of application.

The U.S. market is presented by type of structural carbons along with growth forecasts through 2023. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenues. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation. The driving forces in the industry and the structure of the industry are also examined.

The structural carbons industry is discussed with respect to type of structural carbon material. Finally, brief profiles of the major manufacturers are presented.

Summary

The advanced structural carbon products market has witnessed boom and bust cycles. These state makes it tough for fiber manufacturers to forecast capacity needs.

The aerospace and defense segment is the largest U.S. market for structural carbon materials as shown in the summary table below. Industrial applications such as corrosion-resistant chemical process equipment and refractories make up the second-largest market segment. Unlike aerospace and defense, which chiefly uses carbon fibers and carbon-carbon composites, structural graphite is the dominant structural carbon material in the industrial segment.

Energy applications are the third-largest market for structural carbon materials. The energy market consists mainly of carbon fiber for wind turbine blades and graphite for use in fuel cells, nuclear power plants and hydrogen storage media.
