Aramid papers are lightweight papers which are primarily used in electric insulation, and aerospace applications. These insulation papers have strong performance under high temperature and larger lifetimes. Aramid papers are also being used as the paper of choice in structural materials. These papers offer high strength, high dimensional stability, electrical insulation, high temperature resistance, and flame and corrosion resistance. Owing to their excellent properties, aramid papers are used in various applications across industrial and electrical sectors. Some of the other key areas of application include communication equipment and the use of aramid paper as honeycomb structures in marine or aerospace applications.
The global aramid paper market was valued at US$ 691.6 Mn in 2019 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2022 to 2032. The key factor driving growth of global aramid paper market is the rising demand for aramid paper from the electrical and aerospace industry. With the augmentation and modernization of transmission and distribution networks primarily in emerging economies, the demand for electric insulation materials including aramid paper is further anticipated to increase thereby, leading to an increased demand in the near future. On the contrary, availability of other competing materials that can serve similar purpose at reduced cost may significantly hamper the growth of aramid paper market in the coming years.
The global aramid paper market has been segmented based on type, application, end-user, and geography. Based on types, the global aramid paper market has been segmented into meta-aramid paper, and para-aramid paper.
