He Rapid Growth Of The Carbon Fiber Market Policy Support Can Be Expected

Carbon fiber is carbonized carbon prepared as 90% or more of the fibrous material, up to ten times the strength of steel materials, quality is only half aluminum. In addition to excellent mechanical properties, carbon fiber also possesses a low density, high temperature, corrosion, abrasion, anti-fatigue, high vibration damping, high electrical and thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion coefficient, light penetrating strong, electromagnetic shielding good, and many other excellent performance, which is known as the most important advanced composite materials reinforced materials, holds an important position. "Carbon fiber is a new dual-use materials, is a technology-intensive and politically sensitive key material." Deputy Director of the Ministry of Industry and Raw Materials Division Gao Yun Hu expressed.

Since the 1970s, carbon fiber applications in the aerospace field, its potential applications by the national attention. The current global demand for carbon fiber is mainly divided into three categories: aerospace, consumer and entertainment, energy and industry. Among them, the industrial applications in recent years, the growth rate significantly. Only in the automotive industry, for example, to promote the car lighter to reduce fuel consumption, to deal with challenges of resources and the environment, it has become an important theme in the development of the automotive industry. In the trend of plastic and steel has been established, and is popular models from luxury models to promote. In the United States, the 2013 SRT Viper and 2014 Chevrolet Corvette hood and other parts are made of carbon fiber material, wherein the Chevrolet Corvette plans to achieve an annual production and sales of 20,000; and in Japan, the carbon fiber giant Teijin automotive carbon fiber also gradually expand production capacity; in Europe, in addition to BMW, the Volkswagen is also developing a carbon fiber roof, used for the new Golf. Due to the expansion of new demand in areas such as automotive, industrial market broke out of carbon fiber, carbon fiber US listed company Zoltek (ZOLT) this year rose nearly 80%.
