Conductivity as a characteristic is seen to depend on the application in question. CFRP as with most carbon style of fiber composites is usually extremely conductive. Now where the application requires extreme conductivity, hence it makes sense to CFRP. Where a project is making use of some carbon fiber already, then CFRP can easily be substituted for it. This form of substituting would not be problem as both are carbon fibers and hence are seen to be overlapping in most of the common characteristics. However, this might not be the case for fiber that is glass. In some applications, low level of conductivity might be required. The low level of conductivity would have necessitated the use of glass fibers GFRP which will be discussed next. The GFRP on the other hand is one that cannot be easily substituted with the CFRP. In fact, where the glass fibers are used, if the GFRP is also used, the optimization might not be possible because of the chances of wastage observed. In many of the utility style industries, it is observed that the industry might be heavily reliant on the use of the glass fiber over the carbon fiber. In the utility industry, the glass fibers would be preferred when implementing power lines, for instance or for the rails of the ladder. Utility people use their ladders in many areas where the chances of contact with electricity is usually high and this leads to situations where the person gets electrocuted. Therefore, here where glass lines are used instead, even if the ladder were to come into contact with some form of powerline, the chances of electrocution would be lower. The glass fiber unlike GFRP or other carbon fibers does not conduct at all. Despite these disadvantages, the use of CFRP and the form of advantages it holds in general for the manufacturing industry cannot be disreputed. The cost still remains a big concern, but with the form of technological advancements that are happening for this product, the costs could be driven down. Manufacturing advancements are also implemented as well that would lead to better or higher production and this could make the material more commercially available for an array of applications. In particular the consumer sector, the industrial, the automotive sector and more would be able to fully avail of its benefits in the long run.
