In this market, commercial aerospace, general aviation, military/defense, space/satellite, sporting goods, marine, wind energy, automotive, and civil engineering are the major end use industries.
Lucintel forecasts that the commercial aerospace is expected to remain the largest segment by value and wind energy by volume. Commercial aerospace is expected to witness the highest growth in the forecast period supported by the growth in the development and production of advanced aircraft models and increasing use of lightweight high-performance composites in new aircraft programs, such as Boeing 787, Airbus A350.
By resin type, thermoset prepreg is expected to remain the largest segment due to its demand in wind turbine blades and aerospace components.
By fiber type, carbon fiber reinforced prepreg is expected to remain the largest segment by value and glass fiber reinforced prepreg by volume over the forecast period. By resin type, epoxy based prepreg is expected to remain the largest segment by both value and volume.
The growing use of high performance composite materials in the end use industries is likely to drive the consumption of epoxy based prepreg over the forecast period. By manufacturing technology, hot melt is expected to remain the largest segment over the forecast period.
North America is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume. Rest of the World is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period because of growth in the demand for aerospace and wind energy industries.
Some of the major companies in the global prepreg market are Hexcel, Cytec Solvay Group, Toray, TenCate, Gurit, Mitsubishi Rayon Corporation and are among the major suppliers of prepreg material.
