DALLAS, January 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
ChinaMarketResearchReports.com adds "Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2014-2017" market intelligence study of 116 pages, published in Jan 2015, to its expanding research library and data store.
In 2014, the global carbon fiber industry capacity totaled approximately 130,000 tons, mainly contributed by Japan, Europe and the U.S. The world's top five companies -- Toray, Teijin, Mitsubishi Rayon, Germany SGL and Formosa Plastics shared 60% of the global carbon fiber capacity together. In 2014, the global industrial applications like natural gas, wind power and automobiles showed the largest demand for carbon fiber, 64% or so. Complete research is available at http://www.chinamarketresearchreports.com/114999.html .
The Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2014-2017 covers data and information analysis on Supply and demand, competition pattern, price analysis and development trend of the global carbon fiber industry; Supply and demand, competition pattern, import and export, price analysis and development trend of Chinese carbon fiber industry; Operation and carbon fiber business of nine overseas carbon fiber manufacturers; Operation, carbon fiber business and development trend of eight carbon fiber manufacturers as well as the developments of 28 carbon fiber producers in Mainland China.
Due to excellent performance, the market demand for carbon fiber has been strong. The global carbon fiber demand amounted to 70,000 tons or more in 2014. Specifically, the demand from automotive lightweight grows faster, which attracts many companies to get involved in this field. SGL and BMW cooperate to make use of carbon fiber materials in the body structure of BMW i3 and i8. Toyota will use Toray's carbon fiber for Mirai fuel cell vehicles.
In 2014, China carbon fiber industry took shape, the T300 carbon fiber made in China partially replaced the imported one, and T700 and T800 technologies made breakthroughs. However, the Chinese producers hold backward technologies and pay high production costs; coupled with the declining international carbon fiber price in recent three years, Chinese carbon fiber enterprises are confronted with operating difficulties with a low operating rate. In 2014, China's output of carbon fiber only reached about 3,000 tons, and the self-sufficiency rate was less than 20%.
In 2014, there were more than 30 Chinese carbon fiber manufacturers, but only Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Material and Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber achieved the respective output of above 1,000 tons, while the carbon fiber devices of some enterprises were in a shutdown state. At present, China's planned / ongoing carbon fiber capacity hits 30,000 tons or more, but Chinese carbon fiber companies will delay or cancel some projects under greater pressure incurred by foreign competitors.
