    Market Insights

    Aramid paper, also known as aramid insulating paper, is made by processing aramid fibers into a paper-like form. Aramid fibers are synthetic fibers known for their various outstanding properties, such as high tensile strength, high stiffness, good resistance to abrasion, good resistance to organic solvents, low flammability, electrically non-conductive nature, high dimensional stability, high cut resistance, and resistance to high temperatures.

    Aramid paper's remarkable combination of strength, lightweight nature, and thermal resistance makes it suitable for various industries. This versatility broadens its market potential and is anticipated to foster substantial growth. It is employed in two prominent applications: electrical insulation and as a vital element in the creation of honeycomb structures. Its remarkable dielectric strength, capacity to endure electrical stress, and thermal stability render it an optimal choice for insulating and safeguarding electrical elements against potential breakdowns and short circuits. Moreover, aramid paper plays a pivotal role in the production of honeycomb structures utilized across diverse industries, primarily aerospace.

    The COVID-19 pandemic had an adverse effect on the electrical and aerospace industries, consequently, the trajectory of aramid paper also followed these patterns, facing a significant downturn with a remarkable decline of 20% in 2020. Mainly, the aerospace industry played a significant role in this decline. The market recovered in 2021, followed by a rebound in growth in 2022.

    Increasing application of honeycomb structures, an expected rebound in commercial and regional aircraft deliveries, growing investment in the electrical & electronics industry, and increasing application of aramid paper in the wake of their properties, such as excellent electrical insulation, lightweight, high strength, high modulus, strong structural stability, sound insulation, heat insulation, and flame retardancy, are key factors fueling the growth of the market. Overall, with a promising CAGR of 5.9% (2023-2028) over the long term, the market is projected to attain a value of US$ 968.6 million by 2028.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: In recent years, some JVs have been performed by companies in the market to expand their product portfolio, regional presence, and leadership in the aramid paper market. For instance, in 2020, DuPont Specialty Products, a subsidiary of DuPont de Nemours, Inc., and Nippon Paper Papylia, a subsidiary of Nippon Paper, created a joint venture as DuPont Nippon Paper Papylia Godo Kaisha (DPNP). It utilizes part of the Hokkaido mill at Nippon Paper Industries' Yufutsu production site for the manufacturing of Nomex® Paper.

    Meta-aramid paper holds a predominant position in the market, whereas para-aramid is anticipated to experience faster growth.

    Regional Analysis

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and The Rest of the World

    Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market over the next five years and is also likely to grow at the fastest rate during the same period.


    Based on the application type, the aramid paper market is segmented into electrical insulation and honeycomb. Electrical insulation is projected to maintain its position as the larger application type in the market during the forecast period owing to the excellent insulation properties of aramid paper. Electrical industrial equipment, advanced rail transit equipment, new energy vehicles, and wind power generation equipment are key applications of aramid paper for electrical insulation. However, Honeycomb is likely to experience faster growth in the wake of rebounding commercial aircraft deliveries. Also, the aerospace industry's significant emphasis on reducing weight paired with aramid paper’s outstanding strength-to-weight ratio is giving an additional push to its demand in the industry.

    Based on the paper type, the market is segmented into meta-aramid paper and para-aramid paper. Meta-Aramid paper is projected to maintain its dominance within the market during the forecast period. With its outstanding properties, such as heat resistance, flame retardancy, and thermal stability, meta-aramid paper becomes well-suited for high-temperature applications like fire-resistant apparel, automotive gaskets, and insulation for electrical components. Para-aramid paper is poised to demonstrate accelerated growth, primarily due to its utilization in aerospace and rail transit applications as a key material for honeycomb core structures.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific and North America are likely to hold massive chunks of the market in the foreseen future. The leading aerospace & defense and automotive industries are likely to hugely influence the region's demand in the long term. Asia-Pacific is also expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization and economic growth in key countries such as China and India. This growth leads to increased demand for aramid papers in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, protective clothing, and electronics.
