The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the United Kingdom carbon fibre market, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.
Pan based material or polyacrylonitrile occupies a sizeable portion of the United Kingdom carbon fibre market share owing to its widespread applications in several end-use sectors. It can be used in civil and military aircraft, sports equipment, and vehicles such as luxury cars, among others. This can attributed to its favourable properties such as cost-effective nature, high tensile strength, excellent stiffness, and lightweight features, among others. Furthermore, it possesses high resistance against chemicals and high temperatures, which increases its longevity in extreme environmental conditions.
The aerospace and defence sector accounts for a substantial share of the market due to the increasing usage of composite materials in propellors, rockets, engine blades, interiors of aircraft, single aisle, and wide-body wings, among others. A growing focus on improving fuel efficiency and reducing operational costs of aircraft also promotes the United Kingdom carbon fibre market demand as carbon fibres significantly reduce the overall weight of aircraft.
Additionally, carbon fibres can be moulded into any shape and combined into one mould to lower the number of components required to build aircraft, eventually decreasing the overall manufacturing time.
Gen 2 Carbon Limited, established in 2004 and based in West Midlands, the United Kingdom, is a provider of carbon fibre recovery systems. Its leading products include G-Tex TM, a hybrid of thermoplastic and recycled carbon fibre, and G-Tex M, a fabric of recycled carbon fibre.
Crosby Composites Ltd., incorporated in 1986, is a carbon fibre provider for the aerospace sector. The company, headquartered in Northamptonshire, the United Kingdom, also supplies carbon fibres for Formula One cars.
SGL Carbon Fibres Ltd. is a manufacturer of carbon products with its headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany. The company, founded in 1992, provides pre-impregnated materials and precursor and acrylic fibres, among others.
