Positive outlook! – The Composites United CF Market Report and CMC Market Report 2022 is now available

Now in its thirteenth year, the CU publishes its annual update assessing the overall global market for carbon fibers and carbon composites.

In addition to the industry-known content on the development of the total demand volume and the detailed breakdowns on the current expansion situation of fiber producers, the market report is consistently expanded annually with relevant content. In the meantime, the authors also record CF production capacity over time in order to be able to show longer-term trends. Based on this year’s additional first edition of the Ceramic Composites Market Report of the CU, the first new contents for analyses of the matrix material groups are also opened up, which will be further expanded on an ongoing basis.

The short version of the market reports is freely available below in German and English. The detailed long version, however, is free of charge for CU members only and will be sent to contacts as a personalized single copy. Additional copies can be requested free of charge. Non-CU members can purchase the full version of the CF and CMC Market Report 2022 at a price of €2,400. A corresponding outlook on the contents of the full version is included in the table of contents of the public short version.
