Aramid Paper Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2028
Aramid papers are a type of synthetic, heat-resistant fibers, which are also referred as calendered insulating paper that can offer protection against open fire, heat, and cuts with its dielectric strength, resilience, mechanical toughness, and flexibility. Manufacturers in the aramid paper market offer two distinct types of aramid papers – para aramid papers and meta aramid papers.
Modern aramid papers are entirely composed of synthetic meta aramid papers, which can be found in two physical forms – fibrids and flocs – which are microscopic binder particles and short fibers, respectively. Then, to convert meta aramid papers – Fibrids and flocs – in to a sheet structure, a machine called Foundrinier paper machine is used and high pressure and heat are applied to the end-product to increase its density and attain a specific bulk gravity of the aramid paper, which normally ranges between 0.7 and 1.2.
Manufacturers in the aramid paper market are introducing aramid papers in various forms such as sheets and rolls with various widths and thicknesses, depending on its end-use applications.

Aramid Paper Market Dynamics
Rising Demand for Aramid Paper in the Composites Industry will Complement Growth of the Aramid Paper Market
Polymer matrix composites (PMCs), which are combination of continuous and discontinuous phases of polymer-based matrix and reinforcements, are used across a wide range of industries. Poly aramid papers are the primary components in the discontinuous reinforcement phase on PMCs, which provide them high strength and stiffness. With the increasing demand for composites across wide-ranging industrial sectors, especially in the aerospace industry, is bolstering demand for aramid papers. As the overall composites industry is gaining momentum, owing to the rapidly spreading, industry-wide lightweighting trend, the aramid paper market is expected to witness positive growth in the upcoming years.
Recent Developments in Cellulose Nanofiber Improve Mechanical Properties of Aramid Paper – A Popular Trend in the Aramid Paper Market
With the increasing growth of the aramid paper market, which is primarily attributed to growing demand for composite materials across industry, players in the aramid paper market are focusing on enhancing mechanical characteristics of aramid paper. Leading players in the aramid paper market are investing in R&D to bolster development of aramid paper with superior mechanical strength and stiffness that can provide improved characteristics to composites.
Recent discoveries and developments in cellulose nanofiber are mainly aimed at improving mechanical properties of aramid paper, such as high tensile strength, tensile energy absorption, and interfacial strength. The dipole–dipole coupling interaction or the strong hydrogen bonding between aramid fiber and CNF is helping aramid paper manufacturers to offer high-quality aramid paper, and ultimately gain a competitive edge in the aramid paper market.
