New York, Sept. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global carbon fiber resin market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of over ~7% from 2023 to 2035. The market is expected to garner a revenue of USD 7 billion by the end of 2035, up from a revenue of ~USD 1 billion in the year 2022.The growing demand for lightweight composites is increasing the market growth. Lightweight materials have a high potential for boosting vehicle efficiency since they require slighter energy to encourage a lighter item than a heavy one. For instance, a 10% lowering of vehicle weight nearly results in a 6%-8% rise in fuel economy. When compared to traditional substances such as steel or aluminum, one of the primary advantages of carbon fiber is its low weight while keeping excellent strength and characteristics.
