    The use of high-performance fibers to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions in cars and aircraft will help the market to grow further.

    Market Highlights

    High-performance fibers are those that have been specially designed for applications that call for a high level of stiffness, strength, heat resistance, or chemical resistance. There are numerous fibers with a wide range of characteristics. These fibers are generally stronger and more flexible than other fibers. High thermal and chemical resistance to the majority of organic solvents, high abrasion resistance, non-conductivity, and good fabric integrity at high temperatures are just a few of the superior qualities that some high-performance fibers offer. The product also has a high rigidity and superior strength-to-weight ratio, making it extremely useful for aerospace applications.

    The high-performance fibers market was negatively impacted by the pandemic as it plunged the demand for high-performance fibers from their various key end-use industries, such as automotive, and aerospace, among others, as these industries experienced low production output during the pandemic. The impact of lower production was registered across the supply chain including the level of components.

    The growing usage of high-performance fibers in composite reinforcement for use in military vehicles, aircraft, electronics, and sporting goods is expected to drive the market's growth over the forecast period. Technological advancement in the use of additive manufacturing in aerospace production would create new opportunities for the market. Substitution of asbestos by high-performance fibers for manufacturing bulletproof clothing, tires, belts, concrete reinforcement, and heat-resistant cushions would also support the growth of the market.

    Segments' Analysis

    By Product Type

    Based on the product type, the market is segmented as carbon fibers, polybenzimidazole (PBI), aramid fibers, M5/PIPD, polybenzoxazole (PBO), glass fibers, high-strength polyethylene, and other fibers. Carbon fiber is expected to remain the most popular type of high-performance fiber in the market during the forecast period owing to its applications in a variety of aerospace-related products, such as aircraft, rockets, satellites, and missiles. Additionally, the demand is likely fueled by the increasing use of CFRCs in aircraft components due to their lightweight and rigidity characteristics. Structures made of carbon fiber weigh roughly one-third of that of aluminum and half that of steel.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as electronics & telecommunication, textile, aerospace & defense, construction & building, automotive, sporting goods, and others. The aerospace & defense industry is expected to remain the biggest demand generator for high-performance fibers in the market during the forecast period. High-strength, lightweight, and fiber-reinforced composite materials are essential to the aircraft manufacturing industry as the industry is moving towards lighter materials to increase the aircraft's cost-efficiency and environmental performance. Aerospace applications benefit from using lightweight materials and structures because they offer high stiffness and strength at a reduced weight, significantly lowering fuel consumption. In the case of military aircraft, these materials make it possible to carry more payload and fuel, extending missions and reducing aircraft idle time.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing market for high-performance fibers during the forecast period owing to the expansion of the markets for fiber-reinforced composite materials in the construction, electronics, and automotive industries. Additionally, the market growth is expected to be fueled by new product developments, affordable raw material prices, and the construction of manufacturing facilities by industry leaders. Major economies such as China and India are driving product usage due to the rising demand for security and protection measures in a variety of end-use industries such as oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, healthcare/medical, and building & construction.

    Furthermore, North America held a sizeable portion of the market due to the region's significant impact on product demand brought by the presence of important aircraft manufacturers. The regional market is anticipated to experience positive growth trends as a result of rising defense spending in the region, particularly in the United States. The demand for protective clothing has been driven in recent years by stringent regulations set forth by various regulatory bodies, including HSE, ANSI, and state bodies, pertaining to the security and protection measures of workers in various industries. This is most likely to be a significant factor driving the regional market during the forecast period.
