Transparency Market Research has released a new market report titled “Aramid Fiber Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023.”
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2015 -- According to the report, the global aramid fiber market was valued at US$ 2,598.2 Mn in 2014 and is anticipated to reach US$ 5,099.1 Mn by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2015 to 2023.
Aramid fiber is a synthetic polymer prepared by the reaction between carboxylic acid halide group and amine group. Aramid fiber is used extensively in industrial applications. This fiber is widely used in the manufacture of protective clothing, body armor, automotive components, and electrical components. Considering the broad range of industrial applications of aramid fiber, several prominent companies across the world engage in the manufacture of para-aramid fiber and meta-aramid fiber. Rising demand for industrial protective clothing and growth in the global automotive market is estimated to drive the global aramid fiber market during the forecast period.
Para-aramid fiber was the largest product segment of the aramid fiber market, accounting for 70% share of the market in 2014. Para-aramid fibers are primarily used to manufacture bulletproof body armor fabrics. These fibers are utilized in several high-tech applications such as aerospace and defense. Para-aramid fiber is used in the manufacture of body, floor, and wall materials of airplanes; fishing rod; golf club; bow; ski, etc. These fibers are also used as a substitute of reinforced concrete for curtain walls for multistoried buildings. Demand for par-aramid fiber is increasing due to higher consumption of aramid fiber in the production of body armor and aerospace components. In terms of growth rate, para-aramid fiber is projected to be the fastest growing product segment of the aramid fiber market during the forecast period. Growth of para-aramid fiber can be primarily ascribed to the rising demand for the fiber in end-user industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, and electrical.
