Carbon Fiber Tape Market Investment, Trust, Share, Forecast, Price & News to 2025- Exclusive Report by MarketsandMarkets™

Carbon Fiber Tape Market by form (Prepreg Tape, Carbon Tape), Resin (Epoxy, Thermoplastic, Polyamide), Manufacturing Process (Hot Melt, Solvent Dip), End-use Industry (Aerospace, Marine, Pipe & Tank, Sporting Goods), and Region

By Jack MartinPublished 11 months ago 3 min read

The global carbon fiber tape market size is expected to grow from USD 1.5 billion in 2020 to USD 2.6 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.0% during the forecast period. Carbon fiber tape is used in a variety of end-use industries, including aerospace & defense, marine, pipe & tank, construction & infrastructure, and sporting goods. Increasing demand from these end-use industries is driving the market. However, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the aerospace industry has affected the global carbon fiber tape market in 2020.

Epoxy is the most widely used resin for carbon fiber prepreg tapes. It is a thermoset resin known for its excellent mechanical, electrical, and high heat resistance properties. It is also available in a wide variety of curing-agent variations. It has better physical, mechanical, and adhesion properties and low shrinkage compared to other resins. Carbon fiber prepreg tapes formulated using epoxy resin as a matrix have improved toughness, impact strength, and resistance to moisture and corrosion.

In the hot melt manufacturing process, heat and pressure are used to impregnate fibers with resin. It is also an environment-friendly process due to the use of water-based and solvent-free adhesives. In the hot melt process, resins with a very low percentage of solvents are used for the manufacturing of carbon fiber prepreg tapes. This process requires less coating, and high-speed production is possible with no thermal stress of the substrate. This process is used for manufacturing carbon fiber prepreg tapes for aerospace, sporting goods, marine, wind energy, medical, and other industries.

Over the past few years, companies have strengthened their positions in the global carbon fiber tape market by adopting strategies such as new product launch/new product development, name change, expansion, and partnership. From 2015 to 2020, agreement and new product development have been the key strategies adopted by market players. For instance, in April 2018, Solvay launched Evolite F1050, a high-performance PVDF carbon fiber composite tape for demanding oil & gas applications.

Major market players profiled in this report include Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings (Japan), Evonik Industries (Germany), Zoltek (US), Hexcel Corporation (US), Teijin Limited (Japan), SGL Group (Germany), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Royal DSM (Netherlands), and Solvay (Belgium). These companies adopted various organic and inorganic growth strategies in the past few years. For instance, in March 2018, Toray Industries, Inc. acquired TenCate Advanced Composites Holding B.V. (Netherlands), a manufacturer and distributor of carbon fiber composite materials. TenCate was named as Toray Advanced Composites after the acquisition. This helped Toray strengthen its position in the market at the global level.

In February 2019, Teijin acquired Renegade Materials Corporation, a supplier of highly heat-resistant thermoset prepreg for the aerospace industry in North America. This helped the company solidify its position as a leading provider of solutions for aerospace applications.
