Prepreg Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for wind energy is driving the market growth

The wind energy industry is one of the largest application industries in the prepreg market in terms of volume. Prepregs find wide applications in manufacturing complex structural compounds of wind turbines. The increased demand from these applications is expected to drive the prepreg market CAGR during the forecasted period.

Additionally, Prepreg is used for manufacturing in the automotive industry to substitute metals in interior and exterior applications. The growing need to reduce weight in automobiles for increased performance and safety has accelerated the adoption of Prepreg. There has been increasing demand for modernized vehicles and the growing development of autonomous vehicles ly. The increase in demand for passenger vehicles and the growing electrification of vehicles has increased prepreg applications in the automotive sector. Manufacturing activities have also been halted due to various government regulations across the globe. Restrictions on imports of goods to curb the spread of the virus have further contributed to hampering the Prepregmarket revenue.

Hexcel Corporation set up a new engineered core operations factory in Morocco in May 2023 to meet the increased demand for lightweight and advanced composite materials used in the aerospace industry.
