The report segments and analyzes the market in the most detailed manner in order to provide a panoramic view of the market. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for the market participants as well as investors in the identification of the low-hanging fruits available in the market as well as to formulate the growth strategies in order to expedite their growth process.
Aerospace Prepreg Market: Highlights from the Report
Prepreg is an intermediate material and is one of the most common forms of composite materials in which the reinforcement material is pre-impregnated with either thermoplastic or thermoset resin system in a predefined ratio. It is one of the most preferred materials used for fabricating different parts and components in the aerospace industry, as it enables consistent resin/matrix ratio in the finished product. Thus, delivering uniform mechanical and physical properties across different sections of the part or component.
As per Stratview Research, the global prepreg market is subjected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 4.9 billion in 2024. Currently, aerospace alone accounts for more than 70% of the total prepreg market and it is expected to gain further share in years to come, propelled by an incessant increase in penetration of composites in the upcoming aircraft programs with prepreg being the material of choice.
Several factors mushrooming the growth of prepregs in the aerospace industry are increasing demand for fuel-efficient aircraft coupled with composites as the material of choice, increasing production of prepreg-rich aircraft programs including B787 and A350XWB, upcoming aircraft programs with high composites content, and introduction of fuel-efficient variants of the best-selling aircraft programs including B737 Max and A20neo with greater use of composites.
Based on resin type, the market is segmented as epoxy, polyimide (PI), bismaleimide (BMI), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), cyanate ester, polyether ether ketone (PEEK), polyetherimide (PEI), and others. Epoxy prepreg is expected to remain the most widely used resin system in the market during the forecast period. Epoxy resins bond well with reinforcement materials, such as carbon fiber and glass fiber. Further, they also offer excellent interlaminar strength and mechanical properties, good chemical resistance, and high electrical insulation, which makes them a preferred resin system for a wide array of applications including fuselage, wings, control surfaces, as well as interior applications.
Autoclave is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. Autoclave have decades of excellent track record in the aerospace composites market and is projected to remain one of the most vital curing systems in the aerospace industry. Autoclave curing leads to an excellent surface finish with low void content and high pressure ensuring good mechanical properties, which make it the most preferred curing process.
In terms of region, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aerospace prepreg during the forecast period. Most of the major prepreg manufacturers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of the OEMs in order to be the partner for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs. However, Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth during the same period, driven by a host of factors including increasing demand for commercial aircraft to support rising passenger traffic; opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China for B737, A320 and A330 aircraft programs; upcoming indigenous commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ); rising aircraft fleet size and increasing military expenditure by countries such as China and India.
The market for aerospace prepreg is gradually consolidating as the major companies are performing mergers & acquisitions. Key players in the market are Hexcel Corporation, Cytec Solvay Group, Toray Industries (including TenCate Advanced Composites), Teijin Group, and Gurit Holdings, AG. Execution of mergers & acquisitions, development of new applications, and advancements in prepregs are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
