Advanced Structural Carbon Products
Business Communications Co. Inc. (Norwalk, Conn.; www.bccresearch.com) released Advanced Structural Carbon Products: Fibers, Foams and Composites, an updated report that says the North American market value of the top four types of advanced structural carbon materials is nearly $1.6 billion and is expected to rise at an average annual growth rate of 6.6% to $2.2 billion in 2011. These structural carbon products include carbon fibers, carbon foams, graphite and carbon-reinforced carbon composites. The report predicts that over the next six years, a significant change will occur in global structural carbon products and applications. Technological advances in improving structure-property relationships of advanced carbon materials and breakthroughs in the manufacturing processes resulting in lower costs will lead to novel applications.
