July 21, 2021by helo-10

DUBLIN, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The “Carbon Fibers & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) – A Global Market Overview 2021” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Global demand for Carbon Fibers declined sharply in 2020, dropping by 9.5% YoY in volume terms and 15.4% in value terms, due to a reduction in demand for Carbon Fibers across major application areas amid the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Aerospace, automotive, and oil & gas applications have been hit hard by the pandemic during 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the production rates of aircrafts significantly during 2020 as demand for new aircrafts drastically decreased. Additionally, the parked fleet of commercial aircraft reached record levels globally during 2020 as passenger traffic fell and airlines reduced capacity.

Each new generation of commercial aircraft has used increasing quantities of advanced composites, replacing metals and other materials. This follows the trend previously seen in military fighter aircraft where advanced composites may now exceed 50% of the weight of the airframe.
