Toray to become first carbon fiber auto part maker
Toray is currently the sole supplier of carbon fiber for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner. Toray has said it intends to invest 55 billion yen into expanding the carbon fiber market by 24,000 tons: more than tripling the capacity in 2003, securing 40 percent of the carbon fiber market.
That's a lot of carbon fiber.
