Carbon fiber is composed of carbon atoms bonded together to form a long chain, which is 5-10 µm in diameter.
Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/11/2017 -- Carbon fiber is composed of carbon atoms bonded together to form a long chain, which is 5-10 µm in diameter. These carbon atoms form a microscopic crystal, which exhibits high strength-to-weight ratio. The carbon fiber market is segmented based on raw material, type, form, and end-use industry.
By raw material, it is bifurcated into PAN-based carbon fiber and pitch-based & rayon-based carbon fiber. By type, the market is divided into continuous, long, and short. By form, the market is divided as composite and non-composite.
