The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision-making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities in the market.
The Global Out-of-Autoclave (OOA) Prepreg Market: Highlights
The global OOA prepreg market is likely to witness an excellent double-digit growth rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 206.1 million in 2023. OOA prepreg currently holds a diminutive share in the total prepreg market but is expected to remarkable growth over the next five years. OOA prepreg offers a wide array of benefits over traditional prepregs, such as low-cost infrastructure, low-void content (<1%) in thick laminates, even resin distribution, avoid dry spots & resin-rich pockets, and ability to cure at low temperatures.
The commercial usage of OOA prepreg is still limited to few applications. However, the composites industry has recorded a massive spurt in the demand for OOA prepregs in most of the industries, such as aerospace & defense and wind energy. All the major prepreggers are increasingly participating in the development of OOA prepreg and its commercial usage in various industries. There is a very similar interest recorded from the side of tier players and OEMs.
The global OOA prepreg market is segmented based on the end-use industry type as Aerospace & Defense, Wind Energy, Marine, and Others. Aerospace & Defense is projected to remain the largest and fastest-growing segment of the OOA prepreg market during the forecast period. This industry has been successful in developing some commercial usage of OOA prepreg in the structural applications, such as trailing edge, fuselage, and fairings.
Based on the product form type, the fabric is projected to remain the largest product type in the global OOA prepreg market during the forecast period, driven by its usage in the structural to semi-structural applications, such as fuselage. The product type (fabric) is also likely to witness the highest growth during the same period.
Based on the reinforcement type, carbon fiber is most widely used reinforcement type in the global OOA prepreg market and is expected to remain the most dominant during the forecast period. Carbon fiber offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, high fatigue properties, high stiffness, and high heat tolerance. This fiber type is gaining the market traction in all industries including aerospace & defense, marine, and wind energy.
North America is expected to remain the largest OOA prepreg market during the forecast period, driven by the aerospace & defense industry. There are several projects ongoing with regards to the commercial usage of OOA prepreg in different aerospace applications. Europe is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the same period, driven by an increasing usage of OOA prepregs in the structural applications in the next-generation aircraft, such as A350XWB.
TenCate Advanced Composites, Cytec Solvay Group, Gurit Holding AG, Hexcel Corporation, and GMS Composites are major OOA prepreggers. Most of them are the market leaders in the traditional prepreg too. New Application development, long-term contracts, and new product development are the key strategies adopted by major players to gain a competitive edge in the market throughout the globe.
