Aramid fibers are the class of man-made, strong, high performance synthetic and heat resistant fibers. Aramid polymer is produced by a reaction between carboxylic acid halide group and amine group. Molecules in aramid fibers are linked together with hydrogen bond that efficiently transfers mechanical stress making it enable to use chains of relatively low molecular weight. Aramid fibers possess typical fascinating characteristics such as increased resistance to abrasion, organic solvent, non-melting, non-conductive, enhanced fabric integrity at high temperature and greater strength. They have find a wide array of application in the military, aerospace, composites, Automotive, ballistics, protective clothing against radiation, heat or chemicals, and others. These materials acts as substitute to asbestos material and serve as optical fiber cables in telecommunication. They are also used in the manufacturing of tiers and rubbers.
The global aramid fiber market is majorly driven by rising need for security and protective measure and increasing manufacturing of ballistic protection such as bulletproof armors, law enforcement vest, helmets and vehicle armor in military. Increasing expenditure on defenses, rapid development & technological advances in transportation, drive for higher fuel efficiency and being potential substitute for asbestos and steel forces the aramid fiber market globally. Additionally, advancement in aerospace industries and rapidly growing GDP in emerging countries will fuel the growth of the market. However, High production cost, need for large expenses in research and development and non-biodegradable nature of the material may slow the growth of the market. Burgeoning defense expenditure, adoption of advanced aramid materials and growing need from automotive and aerospace sector provide lucrative opportunities to market players to put forth strong foothold within the market.
