Aramid fiber market to witness an impressive growth of 5.3%

by Future Market Insights


The global aramid fiber market is set to witness an impressive growth rate of 5.3% over the forecasted years of 2022 to 2032. The global aramid fiber market size is anticipated to reach a valuation of around US$ 6.4 Billion by the end of year 2032 from the current valuation of US$ 3.8 Billion in 2022.

The global aramid fiber market is being driven by the rising necessity for extremely lightweight polymers from the automobile and armed services & defense sectors for a variety of applications. Additionally, the restrictions pertaining to the reduction of carbon emissions force a number of industrial participants to search for substitute reinforced fibers have fueled the growth aramid fiber market growth even more.

Several industrial protection products are the major application segment of the global aramid fiber market, which is also anticipated to rise positively, thanks to the rising usage of the aromatic polyamides in personal protective gears especially those that are resistant to bullets and stabs as well as used in helmets and surgical gloves. The need for protective gears is being fueled by strict safety rules for the workers in sectors including oil and gas, construction, aluminum, and steel, which would be boosting the global aramid fiber market opportunities all over the world.

Owing to its growing demand for several modern-day industrial applications, the para-aramid fiber type is expected to experience the most substantial expansion among all the product types. In contrast, the global aramid fiber market opportunities are anticipated to get constrained by substantial R&D expenses and the non-biodegradability of aramid fibers.

Key Takeaways from Market Study
