Prepreg Market in North America 2015-2019

Prepreg Market in North America 2015-2019

About Prepreg

Prepreg has a high strength-to-weight ratio, high resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and fire resistance; therefore, it is favored by manufacturers over its metallic counterparts for use in commercial and industrial applications. It is created by pre-impregnating fibers, including glass, carbon, and aramid, onto a matrix material. In the case of thermoplastic prepreg, the matrix materials used are petroleum-based polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene. In the case of thermoset prepreg, the matrix materials used are resins such as epoxy, bismaleimide, cyanate ester, and phenolic resins.

Technavio's analysts forecast the prepreg market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 10.43% over the period 2015-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Prepreg Market in North America 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the prepreg market in North America: Cytec Industries, Gurit Holding, Hexcel, Royal Tencate, SGL Group, Toray Industries and Yokohama Aerospace America

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACP Composites, Adhesive Prepregs for Composite Manufacturers, American Structural Needling, Arlon Materials for Electronics, Atacs Products, Axiom Materials, Coast-Line International, Composite Holding, Composite Resources, Isola Group, Lewcott, Lingol, Mitsubishi Rayon, NACCO Aerospace, Park Electrochemical, Proof Research, Renegade Materials, Sunrez, Teijin, Von Roll USA, Ventec USA and Zoltek

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Manufacturers prefer thermoset carbon fiber prepregs for commercial and industrial applications owing to their high strength-to-weight ratio, high resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and excellent fire resistance characteristics. Significant advances in manufacturing processes in recent years have resulted in low cost of production and ease of designing, causing their demand and use to rapidly increase.”

According to the report, prepregs have been an integral part of the rapidly growing wind energy market in North America. They possess superior strength and stiffness, and provide the added advantage of requiring less material to attain the same levels of stiffness in wind turbine blades as their metallic counterparts. The resultant reduced weight of the blade increases the overall efficiency of the structure, and improves its cost-effectiveness.

Further, the report states that constraints in the pricing of prepregs, resulting from the inability of producers to lower their operating costs, are the biggest hindrance faced by manufacturers in the market.
