Carbon fiber not only has the inherent characteristics of carbon material, but also has the features of soft and workability of textile fibers. Carbon fiber is a new generation of the reinforcing fiber.
There are many enterprises that engaged in the production of carbon fiber in China, including ZhongFu ShenYing Carbon Fiber Co., Ltd., Weihai Tuozhan Fiber Co., Ltd., CNPC Jilin Petrochemical Company, Jilin Shenzhou Carbon Fiber Co., Ltd., Jilin Chemical Fiber Group Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Co., Ltd., Shenyang Zhongheng Carbon Fiber Co., Ltd., Henan Coal Chemical Industry Group Co., Ltd. and Yangzhou HuiTong Polyester Technology Co., Ltd, etc.
At present, China’s carbon fiber production capacity has reached nearly 10,000 tons; and this number will reach 12,000 tons and 15,000 tons by 2015 and 2017 respectively, which can basically meet the needs of aerospace, wind power generation and transportation equipment fields. However, there is still a certain gap relative to China’s overall demand for carbon fiber.
With the recovery of global carbon fiber market, the consumption of China’s carbon fiber industry also increases continuously. In 2012, China’s carbon fiber consumption reached 9,900 tons. According to the forecast of Huidian Research, in 2014, the output value of global carbon fiber industry will reach USD 2.4 billion, and the center of global high-tech fibers and composites market will be further transferred to Asia, and China’s high-performance carbon fiber composites industry also has immeasurable prospect; it is estimated that, China’s carbon fiber demand volume will reach 20,000 tons in 2017.
