Michael Sauer (Composites United e. V.) presented the latest market report for carbon fibers and carbon composites 2021 at JEC World 2022

Composites United e. V. (CU) has published an annual market report on global composites activities in German and English since 2010. In this report, the CU provides comprehensive information on national and international market developments and influencing factors, as well as an outlook on current challenges and trends. At JEC World, the CU has now presented the latest version of the “Composites Market Report 2021 – The Global Market for Carbon Fibers and Carbon Composites”.

In summary, the global carbon fiber market is of course not entirely unaffected in the very dynamic overall market environment, particularly against the background of the current crisis situations. While the current situation continues to have a noticeable impact on the commercial aviation segment, for example, there are also optimistic growth potentials, such as in the wind energy sector. Although the overall picture of the current reporting year 2021 is characterized by significant challenges in a tense global economic situation, the broad diversification of the market for carbon composites (CC) in particular is proving to be substantial. The overriding positioning in the high-tech sector with, in some cases, high certification requirements, as well as the broad-based market access in terms of product portfolio and fields of application have a stabilizing effect. The great flexibility and willingness to innovate in combination with the high unique selling propositions of the CC materials class demonstrate the potential for new growth impulses.

The complete report is available to all members of Composites United free of charge. Non-members have the option to purchase the full report. A highly consolidated short version as an overview is available to the public on the CU website.
