Increasing Research & Development (R&D) for automation and manufacturing of complex-shaped products and large structures for the marine and wind energy sectors is expected to significantly boost demand for prepreg materials and support market revenue growth going ahead. On 13 January 2021, Hexcel HexPly M9 prepreg materials received Type Approval Certification from DNV GL. HexPly M9 prepreg would provide ship and boat manufacturers optimal prepreg processing options owing to short cure cycles at 100 degrees Celsius, which would increase build rates. DNV GL certification for HexPly M9 is expected to increase demand for type-approved high-performance prepreg materials for large complex structures such as masts, and wing sails, among others in commercial marine craft.

Ease of handling and less complex production of prepreg with reduced curing time opens up more areas for applications and various industrial uses. Rapid adoption of renewable energy to curb dependency of fossil fuels has increased demand for prepreg, which is an important material for manufacturing wind turbine blades and others in the wind energy industry. Furthermore, continuous price fluctuations of crude oil and fossil fuel and supply constraints due to sociopolitical issues in regions of production have resulted in governments exploring wind energy sources, and deployment of wind energy farms is expected to boost market revenue growth to a significant extent over the forecast period.


High cost and low shelf life of prepreg-based materials are some key factors restraining growth of the market. Furthermore, absence of a proper recycling processes of prepreg has led to environmental issues owing to prepreg waste ending up in landfills. The most common practice for fabricating nanoengineered prepreg is to mix nanoparticles with resin and infuse in regular fabric. However, achieving high-volume fraction of nanomaterials for fabricating prepregs is difficult, which is negatively impacting growth of the market. The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war has disrupted the supply chain, which is hampering operations and production of various raw materials and products in countries in the region.

Growth Projections:

The global prepreg market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.7% over the forecast period and revenue is projected to increase from USD 6.94 Billion in 2021 to USD 17.24 Billion in 2030. Rapid adoption of eco-alternatives by major companies in various industry verticals and increasing consumer preference for green energy sources are some of the major factors supporting market revenue growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

COVID-19 disrupted the supply chain for raw materials and composites acquirement, which significantly impacted the aerospace and defense industry, particularly in some developing countries. Aerospace composites are cost-intensive and countries such as India are highly dependent on other countries such as Russia and the Ukraine for a range of components. In what may seem as a coincidence, on 4 February 2021, in order to eliminate the dependency, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and Mishra Dhatu Nigam Limited (MIDHANI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for development and production of composite raw materials during the Aero India 2021 in Bengaluru.

Composites raw materials, mainly in the form of prepregs have applications such as Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH), Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) and Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) are currently imported. In addition, similar requirement exists for other aerospace and defense programs, including those of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO), and National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL).

Current Trends and Innovations:

Future developments in prepregs is focused on the need for automation and manufacturing of complex-shaped products and large structures for marine, aerospace, and wind energy sectors. R&D to produce materials that are quicker to lay-up, easier to use, and high quality of laminate is expected to increase significantly owing to high demand from various industry verticals, especially automobile and aerospace.
