DUBLIN, October 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global and China Aramid Fiber Industry Report, 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Global aramid fiber output totaled 115kt with capacity utilization of 76.0% in 2016. As industries like environmental protection and military develop, the output is expected to rise to 138kt and capacity utilization over 80.0% in 2021.
As one of the world's major aramid fiber producers, China produced about 14kt or 12.5% of the global total in 2016, up 8.3% from the previous year and representing a CAGR of 10.4% between 2011 and 2016. Stimulated by national policies, the aramid fiber market will maintain a growth rate of around 10.0% from 2017 to 2021. Due to technological limitations, China's capacity utilization is lower than the global average, standing at 62.1% in 2016. The figure will climb as the technology advances.
China produces mainly meta-aramid fiber with low technological requirements. In 2016, the country produced 13kt of meta-aramid fiber, making up 90.3% of the domestic market, far higher than the global average of 31.8%. By contrast, para-aramid fiber, particularly high-performance products, is largely imported with an import dependency of 36.3% in 2016.
Global aramid fiber market is highly concentrated with CR5 staying above 85% in 2016. Major enterprises include U.S. DuPont, Japanese Teijin, South Korean Kolon and Hyosung, and Chinese Yantai Tayho Advanced Materials and X-FIPER New Material. DuPont and Teijin are dominant in global aramid fiber market, holding a combined over 70% market share. Moreover, DuPont, Teijin and Yantai Tayho Advanced Materials are capable of producing bother meta-aramid fiber and para-aramid fiber.
Because of its excellent performance (high-temperature resistance, lightweight, and long life cycle), aramid fiber is widely used in fields like high-temperature-resistant filter materials, automobile, and protection.
High-temperature-resistant filter materials: the Chinese high-temperature-resistant filter materials market presented a CAGR of over 30% between 2010 and 2016, and will maintain a growth rate of above 20% during 2017-2021 as the Chinese government focuses on tackling environmental pollution. Correspondingly, the demand for aramid fiber, one of main raw materials for high-temperature-resistant filter materials, will also move into high gear, expected to soar from 5.8kt in 2016 to 9.7kt in 2021.
Automobile: aramid fiber can be used to produce tire cord, brake pad, clutch, rectifier, engine shim, and car body. As it can greatly cut the weight of car body and reduce the resistance of tire, aramid fiber has become one of tire skeleton materials that grew at the fastest rate in recent years.
