An in-depth market report and real carbon fibre evaluation of current markets and future supply and demand of the rapidly growing carbon fibre industry and its global markets. This is the ONLY market report available on the carbon fibre industry with forecasts through 2020, encompassing a crucial period in the industry's development. Between 2011 and 2020 the industry is forecast to have very high growth rates with production of 46,000 tonnes in 2011 to reach 140,000 tonnes by 2020.
The supply/demand forecasts to 2020 are provided through comprehensive statistical data backed by analysis of likely trends for both carbon fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRPs). The complex relationship between supply and demand is expertly considered by Tony Roberts, one of the world's leading market consultants in the carbon fibre industry. The report features discussion of all the world's major carbon fibre manufacturers including new players in the industry and detailed information on plant capacities, production outputs, future expansion plans, product ranges and full financials. Backed by years of study of the carbon fibre industry in China, the author gives a full assessment of China's role in the next decade.
