Aramid fiber is a strong synthetic fiber which is mostly used in fireproofing of walls to prevent breakage by heat. Various characteristics of aramid fiber are high strength, low flammability, resistance to absorption, resistance to organic solvent and others. There are two types of aramid fiber, such as para-aramid fiber and meta-aramid fiber. Security & protection, frictional materials, industrial filtration, optical fibers, rubber reinforcement, tire reinforcement, and others are some of the major applications of aramid fiber.

Aramid fiber is widely used in the automotive industry for manufacturing vehicle armor, helmets and others. Increased usage of aramid fiber in the automobile industry and rising demand for lightweight materials in security & protection applications are some of the key factors that are contributing to the market growth. However, high costs of research & development and barriers for new entrants are some of the factors that hamper the growth of the market. Rising demand for homeland security and higher defense spending is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities in this market. The high cost of production is expected to pose a major challenge for the growth of the global aramid fiber market.


Major Key players of the aramid fiber market include Dow Chemical Company (US), Teijin Ltd. (Japan), Toray Industries Inc. (South Korea), Hyosung Corp. (South Korea), Kolon Industries Inc.
