What is Carbon-Carbon Composites?
Carbon-carbon composites are a class of materials made up of a carbon (or graphite) matrix and carbon (or graphite) fibres. Carbon's appealing characteristics are therefore coupled with composites' great strength, flexibility, and toughness. Because it is the only elemental compound, the C/C family is unique. Simple unidirectional fibre reinforced structures to sophisticated woven 3-dimensional structures are all examples of carbon-carbon composites. C/C composites may now be tailored to fulfil complicated design requirements thanks to the wide range of carbon fibres and multidirectional weaving methods presently available. The characteristics may be tailored to different applications by varying the fibre type, lay-up (or fibre-weave), matrix, and composite heat treatment. The increased demand for better materials offering best of both qualities that is higher strength and lighter weight has stimulated the accelerated growth of the carbon-carbon composites market. Asia Pacific is emerging as the fastest growing market due to rapid industrialisation in places like China, India, Vietnam and others.

Market Leaders and their expansionary development strategies
In 2019, Sekisui Chemical, a Japan based thermoplastic manufacturer has announced acquisition of Aim Aerospace, which is a United States based manufacturer of aerospace components made of carbon composite materials. This has stimulated several Japanese chemical companies to acquire or widen their expertise in carbon fiber and carbon composites. The addition of Aim will also expand both automotive and aerospace markets for Sekisui.
In 2020, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, the Japanese multinational chemical corporation has announced acquisition of CFK Valley Stade Recycling GmbH & Co. KG and carboNXT GmbH. Both of the acquired companies are Germany based carbon fiber recycling companies. The acquisition was made by Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. The acquisition is in line with Mistubishi’s aim of contributing towards sustainability cause and promoting its circular economy strategy.
