Turkey's first plant manufacturing carbon fibre has commenced operations in the country's North-Western province of Yalova. Aksa Akrilik Kimya, an acrylic-based textile and technical fibre manufacturer and a subsidiary of the Akkök Group has launched this firs-ever carbon fibre producing facility.

With Aksa's investment towards setting up of the plant, Turkey has turned in to one of the 10 nations manufacturing carbon fibre. The firm is aiming for a 10 percent share in the international market for carbon fibre, which is an alternative for the iron and steel industry.

As of today, there are only nine nations that produce carbon fibre and hence, the firm is aiming to earn a 10 percent market share worldwide.

Aksa has launched this facility in cooperation with Turkey's Scientific and Technological Research Council or TÜBITAK and Technology and Innovation Funding Programs Directorate or TEYDEB, informed one of the Industry Ministers, Ömer Dinçkök.

Dinçkök said that, tiny number of manufacturers in nine nations is producing carbon fibre. Turkey has been introduced in this list as the 10th nation producing carbon fibre in the world. More so, the firm is intending to launch this product as fast as possible in to the market. The firm is intending to develop their production with aerospace, automotive industry, defense, construction and maritime sectors and wind energy facilities.

Citing, improvement of the composite industry so as to raise the usage of carbon fibre in Turkey, as the firm's key priorities, Dinçkök informed that the industry had immense chance to grow, rapidly.

China, Taiwan, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, United States and Hungary are the other nations producing carbon fibre. Carbon fibre is three times stronger and five times lighter than steel.

Carbon fibre is mostly made use of in the aerospace industry, industrial materials for land and sea transportation, building and infrastructure reinforcement. Overall 40,000 tons of carbon fibre is manufactured every year all across the globe.
