According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Aramid Fiber Market size is forecast to reach USD 6.3 billion by 2027.
The most promising new market opportunity for composite materials in the coming years is likely to be infrastructure. Composite solutions for repair and strengthening of infrastructure can be substantially more effective, faster, and less expensive than conventional reinforced concrete & steel. Aramid fibers hold unique impact-resistant and damage tolerance properties in addition to their structural properties. Aramid fiber composites are projected to be the fiber of choice for strengthening bridge structures to sustain vehicular impact as well as for strengthening masonry walls to resist blast roads in the near future.
Meta aramid demand will grow at 8.8% CAGR during the forecast timespan
Meta aramid offers better long-term retention of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures as compared to commodity fiber. Meta aramid was valued at USD 900 million in 2020. This fiber is available in a variety of forms: conductive, anti-stat, in blends with other high-performance fiber etc. Meta-type aramid fibers are preferred in fiber-reinforced apparel market. These are used for car racing suits, clothing of fire-fighters and uniform for high temperature working, reflecting its exceptional fire retardancy.
Meta aramid fibers also feature stable dyeability, which enable them to be used in various textiles according to the end-user needs. Racing apparel, electrical insulation, filtration at asphalt and cement plants are a few other areas of applications for meta-aramid fibers which will drive the product demand by 2027.
