Inventory（1）–the hotspot of global advanced fiber composite research and development in year 2019
High-performance fiber refers to chemical fiber with special physical and chemical structure, performance and function. It usually has extremely high tensile strength and Young’s modulus. It also has excellent properties such as high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and flame resistance. Common varieties include carbon fiber, aramid fiber, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber, basalt fiber, polyphenylene sulfide fiber, etc. High-performance fiber composite materials are made of high-performance fibers as reinforcement materials and resin as a matrix. The processed composite materials have the characteristics of light weight, high strength and high modulus, fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance, and easy processing and molding. They are widely used in Aerospace, defense military industry, rail transportation, energy industry and other fields have played a major role in both military and civilian fields, profoundly affecting national security, social economy, science and technology and human life. Therefore, as a representative and most widely used branch of advanced fiber composite materials, high-performance fiber composite materials have become an indispensable key material for the development of high-tech, national defense, advanced weaponry and other strategic industries.
At present, the global superior high-performance fiber and composite materials enterprises are mainly concentrated in Japan, the United States and Europe. Japan has Toray, Teijin and Mitsubishi Chemical three major carbon fiber and composite material suppliers, which not only occupies half of the global carbon fiber production capacity, but also monopolizes the production technology of carbon fiber products for high-end fields; DuPont of the United States dominates the aramid market Whether it is the technical level of high-end products or the price level of low-end products, it has an absolute advantage over other companies; Europe occupies a pivotal position in the field of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers, and DSM of the Netherlands has the highest output and the best quality in the world. UHMWPE fiber supplier; China has initially realized the industrial production of a variety of high-performance fibers and composite materials, and has a certain industrial scale, but high performance in high-strength, high modulus and high-end fields There is still a big gap between the key technologies of fiber industrialization and product stability in comparison with developed countries.
High-performance fiber is an important basic material for the development of high-tech industries such as national defense, military and aerospace. In recent years, with the continuous decline in the price of high-performance fibers and the promotion of national energy-saving and environmental protection policies, the application range of high-performance fibers in the civilian field has been increasingly expanded. Increasingly, it has become a new economic growth point. Today, global high-performance fibers and composite materials are developing in the direction of advanced manufacturing technology, low cost, high-performance materials, multi-function and application expansion. In 2019, all countries in the world have made great achievements in the exploration of cutting-edge technology and application potential development in the field of high-performance fibers and composite materials.
