Carbon Fiber Market & Activated Carbon Industry 2014 Reports

DALLAS, March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

ReportsnReports.com offers "Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2013-2016", "2014 Deep Research Report on Global And China Activated Carbon Fiber (ACF) Industry" and "Global and China Activated Carbon Industry Report, 2013-2016" research reports in its store.

The Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2013-2016 available at http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/275172-global-and-china-carbon-fiber-industry-report-2013-2016.html says carbon fiber is the new-generation reinforced fiber, mainly used in the fields of aerospace, wind power, automotive, sports and leisure. In 2013, the global industrial applications like wind power and automobiles showed the largest demand for carbon fiber, namely more than 60%, followed by aerospace, with the growing proportion of carbon fiber application and hence the demand steadily increased; while the growth of demand from sports and leisure was relatively slow.

In 2013, the global carbon fiber capacity totaled approximately 120,000 tons, mainly contributed by Japan and the U.S.. The world's top five companies -- Toray, Teijin, Zoltek, Mitsubishi Rayon and Formosa Plastics shared 55% of the global carbon fiber capacity together. In September, 2013, Toray acquired Zoltek to raise its market share to about 30%.

Carbon fiber is primarily divided into PAN-based carbon fiber whose utilization rate hits about 95%, and pitch-based carbon fiber. In 2013, two-thirds of the global small-tow (≤ 24K) PAN-based carbon fiber was produced by Toray, Teijin and Mitsubishi Rayon; three-fourths of the large-tow (> 24K) PAN-based carbon fiber was made by Zoltek and SGL; half of pitch-based carbon fiber was created by Kureha.

In 2009-2013, China's carbon fiber capacity grew at the CAGR of up to 53.5%, reaching 18,000 tons or so in 2013. However, the immature technology of Chinese carbon fiber manufacturers resulted in low quality, high production costs and poor profitability. In 2013, China's actual carbon fiber output was only about 3,000 tons, with the import dependency rate of around 76%.

In 2013, there were more than 20 Chinese carbon fiber manufacturers, such as Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Material, Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber, Bluestar Fibres, Tianhua Excel-Way Special Fiber (Xintai) and Weihai Tuozhan Fiber. But, only Jiangsu Hengshen Fiber Material and Zhongfu Shenying Carbon Fiber achieved the respective output of 1,000 tons or so.

Currently, numerous proposed and ongoing projects of China carbon fiber industry embrace Jiangcheng Carbon Fiber Project Phase II (1,500 tons / a) and Shanghai Petrochemical 3,000 tons / a Carbon Fiber Precursor and 1,500 tons / a Carbon Fiber Project, both of which are planned to be put into production in 2014.

Global and China Carbon Fiber Industry Report, 2013-2016, available for purchase at http://www.reportsnreports.com/Purchase.aspx?name=275172, mainly covers the followings:

  • Supply and demand, competition pattern and price analysis of the global carbon fiber industry;
  • Supply and demand, competition pattern, import and export, price, proposed and ongoing projects of China carbon fiber industry;
  • Operation and carbon fiber business of nine overseas carbon fiber manufacturers;
  • Operation, carbon fiber business and development forecast of nine carbon fiber manufacturers as well as the development trends of 20 carbon fiber producers in mainland China.
  • Summary of global carbon fiber production enterprises and forecast for supply and demand of China carbon fiber industry.

The 2014 Deep Research Report on Global And China Activated Carbon Fiber (ACF) Industry available at http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/275006-2014-deep-research-report-on-global-and-china-activated-carbon-fiber-acf-industry.html is published in Feb 2014 and is of 158 pages. Companies profiled and analyzed in this report include Toyobo, Kuraray, Unitika, GCI, Etese, TCT, Anhui Jialiqi ACF Co., Ltd, Sutong Carbon Fiber, Jiangsu Tongkang, Nantong Yongtong, Jiangsu Kejing Carbon Fiber CO.,LTD and Qinhuangdao Zichuan.

Activated carbon as a kind of effective adsorbent finds wide application in water treatment, food & beverage, metallurgy, chemical, pharmaceutical and automotive industries. The report titled Global and China Activated Carbon Industry Report, 2013-2016 and available at http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/275437-global-and-china-activated-carbon-industry-report-2013-2016.html  says, in 2013, the capacity of activated carbon across the globe outnumbered 2 million tons/a, as opposed to the demand approximating 1.3 million tons/a, which was an indicative of severe overcapacity. Thus, a grim situation to integrate or eliminate capacities is expected to linger in the future. On a global basis, activated carbon capacity largely concentrates in a few of countries or regions including the U.S., Japan, Western Europe and China. In particular, the capacities in the United States, Japan and Western Europe are dominated by a small number of industrial players, such as America-based Calgon Carbon Corporation with activated carbon capacity over 75,000 tons/a, and Cabot Norit with the capacity of 60,000 tons/a. Others included Japan-based Osaka Gas Chemicals Co., Ltd. which was promoted to the world's third largest activated carbon producer through taking over Jacobi Carbons in October 2013. Also, Osaka Gas Chemicals has grown into the largest producer in cocoanut active charcoal market segment.

China boasts the world's largest manufacturer of activated carbon, with the estimated capacity in 2013 approximating 700,000 tons. In the market segment, China is also regarded as the largest wooden activated carbon marker in the world, where there are numerous wooden activated carbon producers, but most of them are small-scaled enterprises with annual capacity between several hundreds of tons and thousands of tons. And few can realize the capacity breaking 10,000 tons. The production bases of wooden activated carbon are mostly founded in Fujian, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and other regions with abundant forest resources, and the leading manufacturers cover Fujian Yuanli Active Carbon, Xinsen Carbon, and Zhixing Activated Carbon, the combined capacity of which claims 95,000 tons/a.

In China, the production of coaly activated carbon concentrates in the regions which abounds in coal resources including Shanxi, Ningxia and Inner Mongolia. And the top four coaly activated carbon producers in China come to Xinhua Activated Carbon, Huahui Carbon, Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group and Xingtai Coal Chemical, each with the capacity above 50,000 tons/a on average.

As stringent environmental protection policies are progressively released, citing "Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Action Plan" concerning the prevention of air pollution as one example that issued by the State Council in Sep. 2013, China activated carbon industry is expected to embrace more development potentials. The estimate suggests the activated carbon output in China by 2016 will reach 751,200 tons, while the CAGR between 2013 and 2016 will be 9.7%.
