Aerospace & defense segment accounted for largest share of carbon fiber market in 2015, owing to the highest consumption of carbon fiber in commercial aircraft. Increased production of U.S.-based Boeing 787/777 and the Europe-based Airbus A350XWP is expected to drive the market growth. However, the increased prices and unavailability of carbon fibers are anticipated to restraint the market growth.

Pan-based carbon fiber accounted for approximately 90% of the share in the global carbon fiber market in 2015, as it offers high yield and excellent processing properties. Pitch-based & rayon-based carbon fibers are still in the introduction stage, and are expensive than pan-based carbon fiber, thereby driving growth of the pan-based segment. Based on type, the continuous carbon fiber is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Composite form of carbon fiber dominated the market, accounting for majority of market share in 2015, and is also projected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
