Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Analysis of carbon fibres and materials consumption in Russia, 2014" report to their offering.
Russian market of carbon fibers, on the one hand, stands at the threshold of large growth, on the other hand - holds back by a lot of factors, consequently the field does not develop in conformity with the world market. In 2013 the overall consumption of carbon fibers grew only at 5%, while the world demand made 11% increase. The market growth was provided in 2013 such branches as aerospace industry, shipbuilding, construction.
A key problem of the market is an infrastructure undevelopment of the production of composites that consists in low level of the serial production of carbon composites, in a scarce number of engineering centers, in a keen lack of specialists, in the creation and production of composites, at last, are absent effective programs of the development of final demand.
Moreover a lack of competitive ability at cost and quality of home-made fibers for civil application negatively has an effect on demand. The last can be decided in the end 2014 by launching a new factory of Kompozit in Tatarstan Alabuga - Volokno.
The consumption analysis of carbon fibers in Russia in 2014 submits a renewed version of 2011 report, revised and complemented.
A profound analysis was implemented by research on the one hand on the producers of carbon fibers (raw fiber (thread), fabrics (unidirectional, bidirectional, multiaxial), prepregs), on the other hand - on the terminal consumers for more 10 branches such as aerospace engineering, aviation, shipbuilding, atomic energy, construction, sport, medicine, sealing materials, gas tank, automobile business, wind energy, electrical engineering.
