    • Advanced Structural Carbon Products: Fibers, Foams & CompositesPublished:September2011No.Of Pages:239Price:US $ 4850Report Summary* Coverage of the technological, economic, and business conditions in thestructural carbons industry* Analyses of market trends, with data from 2010, estimates for 2011, andprojections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2016* Explanations of the types of materials in the industry, including carbonfibers, carbon foams, monolithic structural graphite, and carbon-reinforcedcarbon composites* A focus on the U.S. market, but analysis and forecasts also are providedfor global markets* Discussion of international aspects of the industry with respect to all thegeographic regions and types of material* Comprehensive company profiles of major manufacturers.INTRODUCTIONSTUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESThe overall goal of this study is to provide a comprehensive understanding ofadvances in structural carbon materials manufacturing, their commercialapplications, and worldwide markets. For the purposes of this report, thesematerials are defined to include all types of carbon fibers, carbon foams,monolithic structural graphite, carbon-reinforced carbon composites, andcertain graphene materials.Specific objectives of the study include describing the major types ofstructural carbon materials, including key physical and chemical properties,raw materials, and manufacturing processes. Commercial applications inwhich these materials are used will be discussed.Present consumption and future demand for these materials will beevaluated for the United States and other major geographical markets.
    • Trends in technology will be analyzed and forecasted. The impact ofgovernmental regulations will be assessed. The dynamics of the structuralcarbons industry will be outlined along with profiles of key manufacturers.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYThis study is an update of an earlier BCC report that was published in 2009.The structural carbon materials industry and markets have continued todevelop in the two and a half years since the previous edition was published.The structural carbon materials industry serves mature markets such asdefense and aerospace, with a wide variety of products satisfying therequirements of well-established applications. However, continuous technicalinnovations and efforts to make structural carbon technologies available fornew applications (at affordable prices) are leading to the development ofnew markets.Corporations in the structural carbons industry need understand thesignificance of these trends to manage their enterprise and resourceseffectively. Users of structural carbons must also understand the effect ofthese changes in order to select the most cost-effective option among newlyavailable products and technologies prior to committing significant capitalresources.Browse All Chemicals Market Research ReportsINTENDED AUDIENCEOver the next half-decade significant change will take place in globalstructural carbon products and applications. Technological advances inimproving structure-property relationships of advanced carbon materials andbreakthroughs in the manufacturing processes—resulting in lower costs—willlead to novel applications. This study analyzes the driving forces that willshape the structural carbons industry over next few years.Consequently, the information presented in this study should be useful to:Members of the financial community who must understand, assess, and ratethe effect of forthcoming changes in the structural carbons industry basedupon the financial performance of the companies active in this marketsegment Chief executive officers who must effectively manage the assets oftheir company so as to benefit from forthcoming changes in the structuralcarbons industry Directors of planning who must incorporate anticipated
    • changes in the structural carbons industry into corporate planningdocuments Directors of manufacturing who must implement new structuralcarbons technology and products into their operations Directors ofengineering, research, and development who must incorporate the latest instructural carbons technology and products into their designs and projectsDecision makers at major structural carbons consumers, such as theDepartment of Defense contractors involved in aerospace and aircraftmanufacturing Executives at companies engaged in developing competitivematerials and technologies such as other reinforcement fibers like Kevlar orcomposites manufactured with other matrix materials such as ceramics ormetal.SCOPE OF REPORTThe report Advanced Structural Carbon Products: Fibers, Foams &Composites covers technological, economic, and business conditions in thestructural carbons industry. Although this report is primarily a study of theU.S. market, analysis and forecasts are also provided for global markets.Included in this report are descriptions of market forces relevant to thestructural carbons industry and their areas of application.The U.S. market is presented by type of structural carbons along withgrowth forecasts through 2016. The driving forces in the industry and thestructure of the industry are also examined.International aspects of the structural carbons industry are discussed withrespect to all the geographic regions and type of structural carbon material.Lastly, brief profiles of the major manufacturers are presented.METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCESThe report’s findings and conclusions are based on information gatheredfrom a wide range of primary and secondary sources, including vendors,users, and engineering and consulting firms. Interview data were combinedwith information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sourcessuch as trade publications, trade associations, company literature, andonline databases to produce the projections contained in this report.The base year for analysis and projection is 2010. With 2010 as a baseline,market projections were developed for 2011 to 2016. These projections arebased on a combination of a consensus among industry sources, combinedwith BCC’s understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from ahistorical and analytical perspective.
    • ANALYSTS CREDENTIALSThis report is an update of an earlier report prepared by Dr. RavindraDeshpande.
