Trends, opportunities and forecast for carbon fiber in the global automotive market to 2025 by application (exterior, power train system, under body system, chassis system, pressure vessel, interior and others), by material (SMC, LFT, SFT, Prepreg and RTM and Other thermoset, regional (North America, Europe APAC/ROW), and region (North America, Europe, APAC/ROW)

The future of carbon fiber in the global automotive market looks promising with opportunities in the exterior, interior, chassis, powertrain, and under body system market. Carbon fiber in the global automotive market is expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach by 2025 with a CAGR of 2% to 4% from 2020 to 2025. The major growth drivers for this market are increasing automotive production and growing demand for lightweight material due to stringent government regulations to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of carbon fiber in the global automotive industry, include development of hybrid, low cost, and recyclable carbon fiber for automotive market.

In this market, exterior is the largest application of carbon fiber in the global automotive composites, textile is largest in material type. Growth in various segments of carbon fiber in the global automotive composites market are given below:
