The global market for Prepreg (Pre-impregnated Composite Fibers) is projected to reach 489.3 thousand metric tons by 2024, driven by the growing focus on achieving part uniformity, consistent quality and superior surface finishes in product manufacturing. From their early applications in the aerospace industry, prepregs are today used in a wide spectrum of industries including automotive, sporting goods, high temperature components, electronic-transmission systems, A/C ducting and in products with high impact surfaces. Major benefits driving adoption include corrosion resistance, high specific stiffness and strength, lightweight, reduced curing time, faster manufacturing, and higher production line throughput. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 12.8% through the analysis period, led by growing automobile production, increased applications in general engineering and strong demand for structural prepregs for renewable energy structures against the backdrop of growing government investments in ensuring energy sustainability and security.
