Judging from the distribution of global output of composite materials in 2018, although China started late, it has developed rapidly, and has occupied the largest share of global output in 2018. Then followed by North America, Asia (excluding China), Europe and South America.
China has a wide range of composite materials production, in which glass fiber production accounts for the vast majority, and also accounts for more than half of the global production; The output of carbon fiber in China is also high, and its production technology, quality and application have been greatly developed in recent years; The output of basalt fiber and UHMWPE fiber ranks first in the world and develops rapidly.
The production of composite materials in North America is mainly concentrated in Canada and the United States, with an early start, accounting for 26% of the world's output. It is mainly used in aerospace, transportation and industrial construction. In some high-end technology applications, the United States has great advantages, such as the application of carbon fiber composites in large aircraft and military aircraft.
Composite production in Europe is mainly concentrated in glass fiber (1.141 million tons) and carbon fiber (52500 tons). Each country in Europe has its own characteristics: Germany ranks first in technology and output; Italian technology is more practical; Russia's technological development is very uneven.
