Research and Markets Adds Report: Application Assessment of Carbon Fibers (TechVision)

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Application Assessment of Carbon Fibers (TechVision)" report to its offerings.

In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:

The carbon fibers market is expected to grow significantly in the next 5 to 7 years primarily driven by the automotive sector due to regulatory pressure to improve fuel efficiency and reduce the weight of the vehicles. Presently, they are primarily used in the aerospace industry and in high-end cars manufactured by companies such as BMW and Lamborghini. However, high cost of carbon fibers hinders its wide scale adoption in high-volume applications.

Therefore, key research focus is on the development of low-cost carbon fibers and low cost precursors, which can boost adoption not only in the automotive sector, but also in other high-volume industries such as rail, trucks, consumer durables, and even medical devices. This research service titled, Application Assessment of Carbon Fibers (TechVision), provides an overview of carbon fibers, its manufacturing process, the key technology and market drivers and challenges, and different application industries for carbon fibers. It also provides a detailed value chain analysis and regional trends in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific along with key innovations across industries.

The research service also includes a detailed analysis of low-cost fibers, typical price ranges of carbon fibers, and the manufacturing methods of low-cost carbon fibers along with a technology development and adoption roadmap across industries.

    Papyrus Joins Forces with Designer Lela Rose

    Papyrus is looking to bring the “elegance and style” of fashion to its greeting cards via a new designer collaboration series.

    According to a release, the collaboration marks the first time a fashion design house and greeting card brand have joined forces to develop a custom greeting card collection.

    Papyrus said it is partnering with American fashion designer Lela Rose to introduce the series. Rose will feature her "sophisticated yet modern style" in the debut card and gift collection, slated to launch during New York Fashion Week. The collection will be available in New York City Papyrus stores and select retailers in September, with availability expanding to all Papyrus locations and retailers in October.

    "The fashion designer collaboration series is a celebration of the commitment Papyrus has to the arts, including a focus on the fashion industry, quality craftsmanship and trend-forward design," said Christy Kaprosy, President of Papyrus-Recycled Greetings. "We are delighted to have Lela Rose's elegant line lead the first Papyrus fashion designer collaboration program, and we are excited to bring more fashion designers to our loyal customers in the future."

    The company noted the collection, which draws inspiration from some of Rose's recent runway designs, consists of 16 cards and five gift accessories, including gift bags, gift tissue, roll wrap and a gift tag set. It also will be available online at papyrusonline.com

    "I'm thrilled to be the first designer to collaborate with Papyrus on their exclusive new fashion series," said Lela Rose. "This is a unique way to showcase our designs, silhouettes and prints, and extend the brand into a new category."
