The global aramid fiber reinforcement materials market size valued at $3.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $8.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Aramid fiber is high-end specialty synthetic product characterized by its superb heat resistance (more than 500°C) and strength (five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis) for various industrial applications, including aerospace, defense (bulletproof vest/armoring fabric), automotive (brake pad/lining, high-end tire cord for racing car), and fiber cable system. The demand for aramid fibers is expected to rise significantly during the forecast period, owing to need for materials that contribute to weight reduction of finished products,  lower energy & resource consumption, and significantly enhance the performance of finished products.

Increase in aerospace & defense projects is the primary driver for the growth of the aramid fiber reinforcement materials market. The aerospace industry has stringent performance product requirements for end users in commercial aircraft, engines, satellites, helicopters, and launchers. Thus, carbon fibers are employed in aerospace end-users industries. Structural materials in aircrafts, such as paneling interiors are made using aramid fiber reinforcement materials, as they possess mechanical properties, such as high tensile strength, impact resistance, reliability, fuel efficiency, and temperature resistance, which make them ideal for use in the aerospace industry. The flexing property of these materials is employed for the production of wing systems, thereby increasing their adoption in the aerospace & defense industry. Moreover, rise in R&D activities for process improvements in the production of aramid fiber reinforcement materials for the aerospace industry drives the growth of the market.

High cost of aramid fiber raw materials, such as carbon fiber and expensive processing methods of raw materials hinder the growth of aramid fiber reinforcement materials market during the forecast period. However, demand for aramid fiber reinforcement materials is rising in consumer goods, marine, and transportation industries which is expected to boost the market growth in the future.

The aramid fiber reinforcement materials market is segmented on the basis of type, end use, and region. On the basis of type, it is classified into para-aramid fibers, meta-aramid fibers, and others. By end use, it is fragmented into aerospace & defense, transportation, consumer goods, marine, and others. Region-wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
