Prepreg Market by Type of Reinforcement, Resin Type, Form, Manufacturing Process, Application and Region - Global Forecast to 2025

Research and Markets
·7-min read

Dublin, March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Prepreg Market by Type of Reinforcement (Carbon Fiber Prepreg, Glass Fiber Prepreg), Resin Type (Thermoset Prepreg, Thermoplastic Prepreg), Form, Manufacturing Process (Hot-melt, Solvent Dip), Application, and Region - Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global prepreg market is projected to grow from USD 6.2 billion in 2020 to USD 10.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.5% between 2020 and 2025.

Prepregs are demanded in various applications including aerospace & defense, wind energy, sporting goods, automotive, electronics (PCB), and others; due to its advantages properties such as high durability, temperature resistance, extremely lightweight, and highly stiff. However, global pandemic disease COVID-19 has disrupted the operations of aerospace & defense, wind energy other industries which is expected to decrease the demand for prepreg in 2020.

Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Type is the fastest-growing Fiber Reinforcement Type of prepregs, in terms of value

The carbon fiber prepregs find wide applications in various end-use industries. Some of the major applications includes aerospace & defense, wind energy, sporting goods, automotive, electronics (PCB), and others. The increasing demand from these applications is expected to drive the carbon fiber prepreg market during the forecasted period.

Thermoplastic Prepreg is the fastest-growing resin type of prepreg, in terms of value

The prepreg products are mainly used in industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive and sporting goods. In the aerospace & defense sector, due to their recyclability, good shelf life, lightweight, tough, and high stiffness, thermoplastic prepregs are used to make a variety of structural components. The increasing demand for prepregs from aerospace & defense, wind energy, and automotive applications is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Tow Prepreg is the fastest-growing Form of prepreg, in terms of value

The tow prepreg form of the prepreg is fastest growing form in prepreg market. Tow prepreg (also referred to as (towpreg) is a material made using continuous fibers that are impregnated with high-performance resins. These fibers can be glass, carbon, or aramid, among others. Towpregs are typically used in filament winding process to construct high-strength structures in aerospace & defense, automotive, and other industries.

Hot-Melt Process is the fastest-growing manufacturing process of prepreg, in terms of value

Hot-melt process is environment-friendly as it does not use any kind of organic solvents to manufacture prepregs. Due to stringent environmental regulations, hot-melt process is widely used in the European region. Continuous advancement in the aerospace & defense industry is also fueling the growth of this process in various countries of Europe. Leading prepreg manufacturers are inclined towards the use of environment-friendly manufacturing processes.

Wind Energy is the fastest-growing application of prepreg, in terms of value

In the wind energy application, prepregs are used to manufacture critical components of wind turbines. Growing environment concerns in APAC countries such as China and India are expected to boost the demand for wind energy during the forecast period. This is expected to drive the prepreg market in this application. The recovery in wind energy industry post Covid-19 era is expected to drive the prepreg market.

APAC is the fastest-growing prepreg market

APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR in terms of value in the global prepreg market during the forecast period. The growth of the prepreg industry in this region is supported by the recovery in end-use industries, the advancement of industrial technology solutions, and increasing wind installation capacities.

Due to COVID-19, numerous industries and automotive companies have halted their production sites across various countries that has led to reduced demand for prepregs, which affected the prepregs demand in APAC countries. The recovery in the end-use industries with restoration in the supply chain would drive the prepreg demand during the forecast period.
