Domain : Materials

Report Code : MT1956523

Status : Upcoming

The thermoplastic prepreg market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to its advantages such as faster part cycle time, recyclability, easy to fabricate, and excellent mechanical properties. The thermoplastic prepregs are composite reinforcements that are pre-impregnated with thermoplastic resin. It is generally tailored for exceptional toughness, environmental resistance, vibration dampening, low flammability characteristics, high wear resistance and radiolucency/x-ray transparency.  They offer a wide range of 0/90, uni-directional, and multiaxial, thermoplastic impregnated fabrics for the composite markets.

Segment Analysis

On the basis resin type, it is segmented into PPS, PEEK, PEI, and Others. The PPS resin type is most widely used and preferred as it has good dimensional stability even at elevated temperatures and in the harsh chemical environment. The resin system also has the advantage of molding complex parts easily and with tight tolerance.

Based on fiber type, it is segregated into carbon fiber and glass fiber prepreg. The carbon fiber prepreg is majorly used owing to its numerous advantages, such as excellent weight reduction, high strength-to-weight ratio, high tensile and compressive strength, low coefficient of the thermal expansion, and very high fatigue resistance.

By product form type, it is classified into fabric and unidirectional prepreg. Owing to its low cost and high strength, the unidirectional prepreg is more dominant when compared to fabric prepreg and is also considered suitable for aircraft structural applications requiring high strength in one direction.

On the basis of process type, it is segmented into compression molding, injection molding, AFP (Automated Fiber Placement)/ATL (Automated Tape Layup), and others. The ATL is most commonly used as this process offers a faster part cycle time, reduced part wastage, and reduced defects, which overall lead to a lower part cost.

Based on the end-user, it is bifurcated into Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Consumer Goods, and Others. The thermoplastic prepregs are majorly used in aerospace and defense. The increasing production of commercial aircraft coupled with an increase in penetration of thermoplastic composites, especially in composite-rich aircraft programs, such as B787 and A350XWB has also positively impacted the market.

 Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Its advantages such as faster part cycle time, recyclability, easy to fabricate, and excellent mechanical properties
  • Stringent regulations regarding fuel efficiency and carbon emissions in the aerospace and automotive industries
