Aramid Fiber Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Protective Clothing

Protective clothing demand is growing from the military in order to protect their body from bullets and armor. Additionally, their growth is also high among firefighters. Firefighters require protective gear that allows them to protect their bodies and lives from the effects of heat and flame. Since aramid fibers are heat and flame resistive, it is high in demand among them.

  • Growing Manufacturing of Aircraft

Commercial aviation is under constant strain to increase performance due to rising fuel prices and environmental activism, and weight reduction is a crucial component of the equation. Hence, the use of aramid fiber in aircraft is growing since all the issues could be resolved with the use of this composite material.

  • Surge in the Use of Aramid Fiber in Consumer Electronics

The consumer electronics sector is driving up demand for aramid fibers, which is a new market trend. Companies that manufacture consumer devices employ aramid fibers for a range of optical applications. Some of the numerous applications for which they might be able to offer prospective solutions include rollers, mobile phones, LCD panels, projectors, wearable electronics, gasket optics, lighting, and many others.


  • High Cost of Aramid Fiber - The high cost of development and the maintenance of quality are the main obstacles to market expansion. Producers of aramid fiber need to invest a sizable investment in the creation of aramid fiber items utilized in security and protective applications in order to meet the high criteria for quality, materials, and performance established by the end-user industries. Aramid fiber makers must also keep up the quality of their products in order to remain competitive, which is expected to increase their cost of quality. For instance, specialized equipment is required to cut and grind aramid fibers for further applications. Since UV light might cause them to deteriorate, they also require particular quality assurance inspections.

Aramid Fiber Segmentation

Application (Frictional Materials, Rubber Reinforcement, Security & Protection, Optical Fibers, Tire Reinforcement, Electrical Insulation, Aerospace)

The frictional materials segment in the aramid fiber market is set to garner the highest revenue of about USD 5 Billion by the end of 2035. Due to their characteristics including thermal stability, superior wear qualities, and stable coefficient of friction, these fibers are in higher demand as frictional materials. This fiber is favored above others including glass, cellulose, and carbon because it is most successful at boosting resistance. These fibers are widely employed in the production of brake pads and other equipment because they tend to cause less harm to surfaces when they are used.

Product Type (Para-Aramid, Meta-Aramid)

Aramid fiber market from the para-aramid segment is projected to gather the highest share of about 74% over the forecast period. These fibers are widely used in the defense, security, and automotive industries. Para-aramid fibers are used for reinforcement in wire and cable, hoses, race vehicles, protective gloves, wire and cable, and ballistic protection. They are also employed as tire reinforcement, brake pad friction material, optic fiber cables, rope, deep-sea oil drilling, ballistic protection, and protective materials. Features including improved rust, humidity, and heat resistance in harsh environments are going to propel this market segment. Additionally, the segment is driven by its use in defense, aerospace, and military for bulletproof body armor.
