Aramid fibers are a class of high-performance organic polymers made up of aromatic polyamides. They comprise rigid polymer chains that provide these fibers their characteristic high strength-to-weight ratio, abrasion resistance, and structural rigidity. Aramid fibers have gained preference as a raw material in the manufacturing of products such as fishing and golf rods, bows, skis and wall materials of airplanes.
The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Aramid Fiber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” finds that the global aramid fiber market size reached $3.5 Billion in 2019.
Aramid fibers are used in the production of aerospace components, such as primary wings, fuselage structures in new-generation aircraft, trailing edge panels and landing gear doors.
Moreover, the leading manufacturers are engaging in extensive research and development (R&D) activities to produce high-quality aramid fibers at a lower cost.
Owing to these factors, the market value is projected to reach $5.7 Billion, exhibiting a CAGR of around 8% during 2020-2025.
Aramid fibers offer low flammability, resistance against heat and organic solvents, and can be made waterproof when combined with other materials like epoxy.
Owing to these properties, they are utilized in an array of equipment, ranging from body armor, fire protection clothes and bulletproof vests to vehicle armor, military helmets, protective gloves, and fireproof suits for firefighters.
