CFC was founded in 2011 to provide our clients with what we believe to be the most expansive and up-to-date information on the advanced composites industry. CFC's consultants have two decades of experience researching, reporting and analyzing, and consulting on the markets for carbon fiber and other advanced composite materials and their applications.
CFC's senior consultant, Chris Red, served as an editor, contributing author for many of the industry’s trade publications, including Advanced Composites Monthly, Composites Industry Monthly, High-Performance Composites, Composites Technology, Composites Manufacturing, and has provided commentary and data for a number of other publications and government policy reports. In addition, Mr. Red is a frequent speaker and lecturer at a wide range of composites-related events.
Parlaying this experience, CFC continually develops its information databases and market research in an effort to support the growth and understanding of the uses and markets for advanced composite materials. Mr. Red's exposure as an analytical writer for the composites industry and participation in the above-mentioned magazines, publications, government policy statements and reports has made him a subject matter expert on the market for carbon fiber composites, with a particular emphasis on aerospace and alternative energy markets.
