Abstract

In this chapter, we will introduce the brief overview of carbon fibers showing superior performance and comprising expensive materials. Further, the origin and history, definition and classification, manufacturing technology, and world market and industry trends in carbon fibers will be presented. Recently, carbon fibers have attracted attention for their potential use as structural materials in aerospace, sports, cars, and bridges. Also, carbon fibers have been considered as the next-generation materials in the aerospace/aviation industry, which has presented a huge opportunity to the entire supply chain of carbon fibers.
