Carbon Fiber Market Registering a CAGR of 9.1% to Hit US$ 11.44 Billion by 2032: Fact.MR Report

The increasing demand for lightweight materials in various industries and carbon fiber’s multiple qualities such as high strength & low weight are the factors contributing to the carbon fiber industry growth

Rockville, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per Fact.MR, a provider of market research and competitive intelligence, the global Carbon Fiber Market is likely to reach a US value of $11.44 Bn by 2032 while climbing at a CAGR of 9.1%.

Carbon fiber is a lightweight and super-strong material made of thin carbon strands. It’s better than other materials because it’s really strong but much lighter, making things like airplanes and cars more fuel-efficient. It doesn’t rust, lasts a long time, and can handle much stress without getting damaged. It also conducts electricity, which is handy for electronics. People like using it because it allows for cool and intricate designs, and it can even help the environment by reducing fuel use and emissions in transportation.
