Global Prepreg market – Introduction

  • The term prepreg is used to denote pre-impregnated composite fibers.Prepreg, a reinforcing material impregnated with a resin using a machine, is an intermediate material, which is processed into various shapes (like planks, wires, tapes, and rods). The shapes in turn serve as raw inputs to specialized parts fabricators, capable of molding and shaping the material into finished items using specialized equipment.The finished parts are subsequently sold to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers). A prepreg can therefore be considered as a combination of non-woven material, fabric, roving or mat with resin, which is generally cured to B-stage, ready for molding. Prepreg is being used in the aerospace & defense, wind energy, automotive, sporting goods, electronics, and other end-use industries. The increasing wind energy projects and demand of lightweight material from automotive industry support the demand for prepreg in the wind energy and automotive end-use industry.

Covid-19 Impact on the Global Prepreg market

  • The COVID-19 outbreak drastically altered the demand for prepreg materials across the globe due to a decline in demand from the automotive and aerospace & defense industries. The pandemic has abruptly interrupted the operations and global supply chain across various industries, which in turn has slowed down the growth of the prepreg market.
  • Prepreg is majorly used in the aerospace sector. However, the aerospace sector had shut down the operations due to lockdown. This led to high decline in the prepreg market.
  • Electrical industry is also highly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Prepreg is used as insulating material in circuit board, and in lockdown all manufacturing units were closed, which limited the demand for prepreg in the market.
