    Carbon fiber composites are common now in aircraft and some automobile applications. With high strength and low mass/weight, CFC's are attractive with regard to helping reduce fuel utilization.

    Carbon fibres are both present and future. All attempts to make better competitors failed up to now, so they will probably remain the standard choice for high-performance composite.
