Background:

Over the years, the level of demand for carbon fiber and carbon fiber reinforced composites has steadily increased in striking parallel with the number of industrial applications using composite materials. From aerospace to sporting goods to wind energy, carbon fiber is rapidly gaining acceptance as an alternative material to metals, wood, and plastics, and is becoming more widely recognized for its high-performance characteristics.
Firms that produce carbon fiber and carbon fiber reinforced composites are approaching market opportunities with starkly different strategies. In a major new research report, "Worldwide Carbon Fiber Competitive Analysis and Leadership Study 2014", Lucintel's analysts have examined and profiled seven of the world's leading carbon fiber producers. This report offers a full competitive analysis from target markets to product mapping and from selling strategy to production capabilities.

Lucintel has built profiles of each competitor based on the following criterias:
- Company Overview
o Company Description and Business Segments
o Company Statistics
- Carbon Fiber Business Overview
o Carbon Fiber Business Segments
o Global Carbon Fiber Operations
o Key Differentiators and Strengths
- Products and Product Positioning
o Product Line Overview
o Product Mapping
o Product Positioning in Market Segments
- Production
o Global Manufacturing Operations
o Current and Forecast Production Capacities
o Production Capacity and Output versus Global Demand for Carbon Fiber
- Financial Condition

The resulting research report represents the most complete strategic and tactical assessment of the carbon fiber producer landscape available. In terms of total revenue generated by leading carbon fiber producers, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings (MCH) ranks number one, followed by Toray.
