UAE Automotive Carbon Fiber Composites Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

Looking to buy the report?

The automotive carbon-fiber composites market in UAE is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.12% during the forecast period. The need for lightweight and fuel efficient vehicles, driven by the setting up of  fuel economy and emission standards by the government, has significantly shifted manufacturers’ focus towards automotive composites in the country. The increased use of composites as the favorable material option is what automotive OEMs are investigating to keep up with evolving fuel economy standards. The increase in demand for passenger vehicles in the country will significantly drive the growth of the market. Demand in the passenger vehicle segment is expected to grow by 20-25% by the end of 2020 in UAE. The country’s strong economic growth, solid household spending and increased access to vehicle financing are set to be the drivers of the passenger vehicle automotive industry by 2020.

The demand for carbon-fiber composites, also termed carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (or CFRP), is increasing due to the need for highly flexible, sturdy, light materials that possess corrosion-resistance ability, in all the vehicle applications by the OEMs . Carbon-fiber composites weigh about 25% to that of steel and provide better resistance in terms of stiffness and strength that in turn varies with fiber grade and orientation. The factor that affects the growth of the market adversely is the cost associated with carbon fiber composites, significantly higher than steel or aluminum, along with the high production cost. The trend fostering the interest of the automotive industry in carbon composites is the series of partnerships and collaborations formed by the auto OEM/fiber suppliers over the last 2 years. BMW and SGL partnered to provide carbon-fiber material for the BMW i3.
