Aramid fiber is set to become a key material in a variety of applications, including but not limited to automotive, arms, aerospace, and the marine industry, due to its impressive strength. During the forecast period, rising demand for lighter, stronger, and more durable ropes and cables to lift heavier loads and reach greater depths is expected to boost aramid fiber market growth. Aramid fiber’s high-performance properties, such as high strength and light weight, will drive up demand in the offshore, leisure, and mining industries.
Aramid fibres are also used in hulls and sails because of their high dimensional stability and stiffness. Increasing the use of aramid fibers in hulls and sails to improve structural strength while reducing noise and vibrations is expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. Because of the aforementioned factors, the global aramid fiber market is expected to grow at a healthy pace, with a CAGR of 6% expected over the forecast period (2020-2030).
Impact Insights from COVID
The spread of the coronavirus has forced nearly all countries to implement lockdowns and strict social distancing measures, disrupting every industry and market, including the global aramid fibre market. According to UN estimates, the global economy will lose billions of dollars in 2020.
The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the demand-supply equation in a wide range of industries, resulting in a global economic meltdown. Lockdown ease in Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa, on the other hand, is expected to help the aramid fibre market grow by the end of 2020.
