About Prepreg

Prepregs are fiber reinforcement pre-impregnated with a resin. The resins are often either thermoset or thermoplastic. The global prepreg market is largely driven by the growing composites market. The industry is striving for better acceptance of the product. This, along with cost cutting initiatives, is likely to increase the adoption of prepregs. The consumption of prepreg is likely to increase owing to environmental concerns and the strong need for alternate processing methods and products that comply with regulations. High-performance applications in the aerospace, wind energy, and automotive sectors are increasingly adopting prepregs. These cost intensive industries can withstand the high-cost aspect of prepregs. However, great opportunities exist in the market for prepreg manufacturers and subsequent processors if more cost-effective prepreg materials and manufacturing processes are developed.

The analysts forecast the global prepreg market to grow at a CAGR of 10.34% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Prepreg Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global prepreg market: Celanese, Cytec Solvay Group, Mitsubishi Rayon (MRC), Teijin, and Toray.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Axiom Materials, Gurit, HC Composite, Hexcel, Kemrock Industries And Exports, KINECO, Kubota Research Associates, TenCate, Park Electrochemical, Plastic Reinforcement Fabrics, SGL Group, UNICARBON, and Zyvex Labs.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is efforts toward making composites eco-friendly. The high-cost factor associated with composites is least of worries when the environmental footprint is a primary concern. The pressure to comply with carbon dioxide emissions and fuel economy targets are pushing researchers across the globe to look at composites like prepregs in every aspect of the product, right from raw material through the finished product. The European Union and the end-of-life vehicle (ELV) directive mandate that 85% by weight of the material used in cars and light trucks built for 2015 model year and beyond to be recyclable or reusable.”

According to the report, one driver in market is demand for lightweight materials in automotive sector. Composites have long been used in cars and trucks, primarily in interiors and under the hood. High-performance automobiles have used carbon fibers for many years, and now new high-speed manufacturing technologies are allowing carbon fibers to be incorporated in production vehicles. The propelling force of lightweight materials in the automotive sector is further driven by the need for better and fuel efficient automotive. Automakers are striving toward the manufacture of light and improved vehicle exterior and interior parts that have the ability to drastically improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The area of material science, especially composites, has been complimentary to the evolution of prepreg in the composites sector.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is prepregs are cost prohibitive. Composite processing through methods such as pultrusion or vacuum infusion involves combining fibers and resins at the site. However, prepregs have to undergo prepregging before they can be used. The costs of individual components such as resins, cures, and fabrics are still less when compared with the overall prepreg cost. Therefore, when a cumulative comparison is made between prepregs and final processed products manufactured with individual components, prepregs are priced higher.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
