    Market Insights

    In the 1960s, DuPont produced the first-ever meta-aramid fiber as HT-1 under the brand name Nomex. After rigorous work by Stephanie Kwolek during the 1960s-1970s, DuPont also became the first to introduce para-aramid fiber, Kevlar in 1973. Later in 1978, Twaron, a very similar fiber was introduced by Akzo, leading to several patent disputes in the 1980s. This phenomenon led to a series of events, totally flipping the market dynamics with Dupont losing its market share to rival companies. Today, there are several recognized brands in the industry: Kevlar, Nomex, Twaron, Technora, Heracron, etc. Even though DuPont lost its leadership to Teijin in the para-aramid market, it proficiently asserts an indubitable lead in the meta-aramid as well as the global aramid fiber markets.

    Para-aramid offers key benefits such as excellent heat and flame resistance, high thermal protection, excellent chemical resistance, and electrical isolation. The material is used in a range of applications such as electrical insulation, clothing of fire-fighters, car racing suit, hoses, and belts. The aerospace & defense and electrical & electronics industries are likely to create healthy demand during the forecast period, driven by increasing demand for aramid paper for honeycomb panels and electrical insulation.

    The unanticipated outburst of COVID-19 caused severe distraught in the market, bringing in irreparable changes in the fundamentals of the business. Stratview Research’s latest estimates suggest that the market is expected to take a deep plunge of -13.5% YoY in 2020. However, unending demand from the least impacted electrical & electronics industry is likely to balance out a portion of the losses suffered in 2020, aiding the market to reach US$ 1.5 billion by 2026. Several other factors insinuating a healthy recovery from 2021 onwards are the expanding electrical and electronics industry, the expected recovery in automotive production, expected rebound in commercial and regional aircraft deliveries, growing military expenditure.

    Segments' Analysis

    Meta-Aramid Fiber Market by Form Type

    Based on the form type, Stratview Research has segmented the market as paper, staple fiber, and filament. In terms of both value and volume, the paper is likely to maintain its dominance over the next five years with key applications in electrical insulation and honeycomb paper. The filament is another attractive segment with prime applications in protective fabrics and filtration. Meta-aramid’s high resistance to heat makes it the preferred material for electrical insulation, protective gear, and heat shields in vehicles.

    Meta-Aramid Fiber Market by End-Use Type

    Based on the end-use industry, we have segmented the market as aerospace & defense, automotive, electrical & electronics, oil & gas, and industrial. Unlike the overall aramid fiber market, here in meta-aramid fiber, the automotive industry holds a diminutive share of the market in 2020. Aerospace & defense and electrical & electronics are likely to be the largest segments by 2026. Advancements in the electrical & electronics industry have been on an uphill trajectory, generating massive demand for aramid paper, especially for electrical insulation purposes.
