Trends, opportunities, and forecast in prepreg market to 2026 by end use industry end use industry (commercial aerospace, military/defense, general aviation, space/satellite, sporting goods, marine, wind energy, automotive, and civil engineering industries), by prepreg (thermoset prepreg, thermoplastic prepreg, by reinforcement type (Carbon fiber, Glass fiber, Aramid fiber), Resin Type(Epoxy, BMI, Phenolic, Cynate Ester, Thermoplastics), By Weave Type (UD prepreg, Fabric prepreg), By Manufacturing Technology (Solvent dip, Hot melt) and by region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World)

The future of the global prepreg market looks promising with opportunities in the commercial aerospace, military/defense, general aviation, space/satellite, sporting goods, marine, wind energy, automotive, and civil engineering industries and other industries. The global prepreg market is declined in 2020 due to the global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, the market will witness recovery in the year 2021, and it is expected to reach an estimated $5.5 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 9.2% from 2021 to 2026 with a CAGR of 8%-10% from 2021 to 2026. The major drivers for this market are growing demand for high performance composite materials and the replacement of metals with composites in different end use industries.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the prepreg industry, include development of bio based products and increasing focus on thermoplastic resin based composites. Hexcel, Cytec Solvay Group, Toray, TenCate, Gurit, and Mitsubishi Rayon Corporation and others are among the major prepreg manufacturers.

The study includes trends and forecast for the global prepreg market by end use industry, by technology, by pressure rating, and region as follows:
