Report Summary

The global aramid fiber market is gaining traction due to the growing demand for higher fuel efficiency and increasing need for security. Aramid fiber is a synthetic high-performance fiber with rigid polymer chains molecules. It is a polyamide with its amide groups separated by para-phenylene groups. Aramid fiber offers features such as high strength, low flammability, resistance to abrasion, no melting point, and no conductivity. This fiber offers very high thermal resistance and does not melt or catch fire at a common level of oxygen. It has a very stable chemical structure and is extremely resistant to organic solvents. This fiber is used for varied applications such as automotive, aerospace, protective clothing, composites, telecommunication, and ballistics among others. This fiber is also used as a substitute for asbestos, excess of which causes lung diseases.

Increasing demand for increased fuel efficiency and growing use as a replacement to asbestos boosts the Aramid Fiber market

The rising protective measures taken worldwide for enhanced safety and security have increased the demand for aramid fiber. Use of aramid fiber as substitute for substances such as asbestos, which if used in excess quantities cause diseases, has supported the market growth. Additionally, increasing use of aramid fiber in automotive and aerospace sectors augments market growth. Technological advancements in automotive sectors, and growing applications of aramid fiber is expected to accelerate its adoption worldwide.

However, high production cost, and non-biodegradable nature are some of the factors hampering the global market.
