The global market for CFRTP is segmented by resin type, product type, application and geography. By resin type, the CFRTP market is segmented into Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyamide (PA), Polycarbonate (PC) and Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS). PEEK market has projected a considerable growth during the forecast period for their high temperature operational stability and high impact resistance.

North America is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for CFRTP during the forecast period owing to the rapid urbanization and industrialization. Companies such as Airbus S.A and Boeing utilize CFRTP for the manufacturing of combat and cargo transport aircraft, which is expected to further contribute to the overall market in the region. The major challenge faced with the carbon fiber reinforced thermal plastics market is the high cost of the raw materials and manufacturing costs, coupled with stiff competition from thermoset composite manufacturers.
