Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Prepreg market size is expected to be worth around US$ 20.6 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Prepreg market size was valued at US$ 9.1 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

Benefits of prepreg products, such as cost-effectiveness and low maintenance requirement, are further anticipated to fuel their demand across various sectors. Some of the key application industries include aerospace & defense, automotive, wind energy, and sporting goods.

This is projected to propel the market growth. High demand for lightweight parts from the automotive industry is projected to boost the market growth. Rising fuel prices have augmented the demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, which has prompted a reduction in automotive weight.

Carbon fiber-based prepreg is widely utilized as a substitute to conventional heavier materials on account of its higher strength to weight ratio. Thus, the rising use of prepreg in the automotive industry is anticipated to benefit the market growth. Rising demand for high-strength, lightweight aircraft parts are also projected to propel the market growth.

Report Highlights

Carbon fiber accounted for the highest market share of over 84.01% in 2019 and is projected to retain its leading position throughout the forecast period. Growing concerns about fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have urged automotive parts manufacturers to use carbon fiber composite materials as substitutes for metal components. This is projected to fuel the demand for carbon fibers over the forecast period.

Thermoset resins accounted for the maximum market share of over 73.01% in 2019 and are projected to grow further at a significant rate from 2020 to 2027. Thermoset resins are in a liquid state at room temperature, which allows easy impregnation of reinforcing fibers. In addition, these resins are bonded by a three-dimensional network, which makes the fiber stronger as compared to thermoplastic resins.

The hot-melt manufacturing process held the major market share of 74.01% in 2019 and is projected to expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. The process is widely used on account of its benefits, such as easy handling, control over resin content, and excellent product quality.

The solvent dip manufacturing process is also projected to register a significant CAGR from 2020 to 2027 and reach USD 5.27 billion by 2027. The resin used in the process is initially dissolved in a solvent bath to prepare a solution that is later used as a dipping solution. In the next step, the resin containing fiber is reheated to ensure even distribution of the resin across the fiber.

The aerospace & defense application segment accounted for the largest share of over 40.01% in 2019 and is estimated to expand at a strong CAGR from 2020 to 2027. Prepreg fibers have high demand in this industry on account of the rising need for highly durable and lightweight aircraft parts.

The wind energy application segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand for renewable energy sources coupled with the use of high-strength materials for manufacturing wind turbine parts is projected to stimulate the product demand. In addition, its benefits, such as low maintenance requirement, long shelf life, high strength-to-weight ratio, and corrosion resistance, are likely to propel the demand further.

North America accounted for the highest market share of 39.01% in 2019 and is estimated to grow further at a significant CAGR from 2020 to 2027. This growth is attributed to the rapidly expanding aerospace industry in North America. The region is expected to cater to nearly one-third of the global operational fleet demand, resulting in an increased production of airframe and aircraft parts over the period. Ascending demand for new-generation aircraft is expected to boost the growth of the aircraft manufacturing industry, thereby supporting the regional market over the forecast period.
