Recently, China Ministry of Industry & Information Technology (MIIT) raw material department issued the "action plan" to accelerate the development of carbon fiber industry.

The plan asks for increase the industry top 5 enterprises production centralization rate to 70% by 2020 through the organization and implementation of four actions.

The goal of the program is to build a initial carbon fiber and its composite materials industrial system and establish a scale carbon fiber industry application market after three years of efforts, including:

  1. Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) precursor, high-strength carbon fiber product quality to be close to the international advanced level,
  2. High strength carbon fiber single line production capacity to reach kiloton and equipped with supporting precursor industrialization preparation
  3. High strength model carbon fiber to realize industrialization
  4. High model and high strength and high model carbon fiber industrialization key technology breaking through

By then, there will be 2~3 large competitive carbon fiber enterprise groups with international competitiveness and some carbon fiber and its composite materials industry gathering zones with distinctive characteristics such as strong innovation capability and perfect industry chain.

To achieve the above goals, there will be a focus on organizing and implementation of four action plans, i.e.:

  1. Key technological innovation action
  2. Industrialization promotion action
  3. Industrial upgrading and transformation action
  4. Downstream application development action

The plan requires the industry to strengthen diversified carbon fiber raw materials technological R&D including the asphalt-based material, viscose-based material, and graphite-based material.
