About Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic
CFRPs are high-strength and lightweight composite materials that contain a matrix, which is generally a polymer resin, and carbon fiber, a reinforcement material. Epoxy is the most commonly used polymer resin for manufacturing CFRPs. However, other polymers such as polyester, vinyl ester, or nylon are also used as reinforcement matrices. The properties of these plastics depend on the structure of the carbon fiber and that of the binding matrix (resin) material. Silica, rubber, and nanotubes are also used for reinforcement. The reinforcing phase is either in continuous or discontinuous form.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global carbon fiber-reinforced plastic market to grow at a CAGR of 12.09% during the period 2016-2020.
