Worldwide Prepreg Markets to 2027: Rise in the Demand for Carbon-Fiber Prepreg Spells Opportunity

Dublin, July 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Prepreg Market 2019-2027" report has been added to's offering.

This research report, estimates the global prepreg market to proliferate with a compound annual growth rate of 10.05% in the forecasting years of 2019-2027.

The global prepreg market is being driven by factors such as the rising demand from the aerospace industry, the automotive manufacturers trying to reduce carbon footprints, the ease of handling, the growing wind energy market and a rise in the interest in lightweight materials in sports. However, high costs associated with prepreg and low shelf-life compared to conventional resin fiber impede the growth of the market.

Key opportunities like the enhancements in manufacturing processes, rise in the demand for carbon-fiber prepreg and the increasing strategic developments by manufacturers aid in the growth of the market through the estimated period. However, challenges such as technical confines and complexities in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) requirements hamper the market growth.

Regional Outlook

The global prepreg market has been segmented mainly into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa. The Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region in the global prepreg market, accounting for the highest CAGR.

Whereas, North America holds the largest market share of the global prepreg market, owing to the huge demand from the aerospace sector in the region. The region is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The developed countries in the region, namely, the United States and Canada are the key contributors to the market advancements in the region. The presence of the key players and the ongoing economic advancements in the region are the key motivators for the growth of the market.
