    What is PPA?

    Polyphthalamide (PPA) is well known for its exceptional performance at high temperatures and remarkable mechanical properties. The PPA prepreg is formed by pre-impregnating carbon/glass fiber with PPA resin and it is used in applications that require extremely light-weight materials. Although PPA prepreg has critical attributes such as higher heat resistance and lower moisture absorption, these high-performance UD tapes have very limited applications and have a higher cost.

    Market Dynamics

    The PPA prepreg market is still in the developmental phase and most of the companies have their PPA prepreg product in the R&D stage presently. The growing EV production would likely propel the demand for PPA prepreg, as it can be an ideal choice to produce EV battery enclosures. Furthermore, there is a good market opportunity for PPA prepreg in under-the-hood automotive applications with a simple structure.

    Regional Analysis

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World

    Europe is expected to be the largest market over the next ten years, whereas Asia-Pacific is likely to grow at the highest during the same period.

    By Form Type

    The market is segmented into UD prepreg and fabric prepreg. UD prepreg is estimated to remain the most preferred form type in the market during the forecast period. Currently, all three companies are engaged in the development of UD tapes only. With a gradual rise in the demand for PPA prepreg, it is also anticipated that there will be a demand for fabric PPA prepregs in the long run.

    By End-Use Industry Type

    The market is segmented into automotive, electrical & electronics, consumer goods, energy storage, aerospace and defense, and others. Among the end-use industry types, the automotive industry is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. Currently, all the developments related to PPA prepreg are mainly targeted at the automotive industry. However, it is anticipated that energy storage tanks and electrical & electronics would be the next target applications for PPA prepreg in the coming years.

    By Fiber Type

    The market is segmented into carbon prepreg and glass prepreg. Between fiber types, glass fiber is expected to remain the widely used fiber type in the market during the forecast period. Glass fiber mainly competes in highly cost-sensitive industries such as automotive and it is also preferred for electrical & electronics, and consumer goods applications. On the other hand, carbon fiber is primarily preferred for aerospace & defense applications and is likely to rapidly gain market share in the coming years.

    By Resin Type

    The market is classified as PA4T, PA9T, and others. PA4T is likely to be the preferred resin type in the market during the forecast period, owing to its critical advantages, such as high melting point, excellent noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) properties, along with extreme stiffness and strength.

    Regional Analysis

    Europe is expected to be the largest market for heat-resistant PPA prepregs during the forecast period, following a similar trend of thermoplastic prepreg. This region is home to all three PPA prepreg manufacturers. On the contrary, the Asia-Pacific region, is likely to witness the fastest market growth during the forecast period, mainly driven by the automotive industry in Japan and China.

    Key Players

    The market is currently at the introductory stage with the presence of a few global players, which are currently working on the R&D of PPA prepreg. Many companies backed off from the market after commercializing the product, as there wasn’t any significant market demand. Although PPA prepreg is still in the developmental phase, the following are the leading companies in the race of development of the same currently:

    • Solvay
    • Arkema
    • DSM

    In 2019, Solvay and Marelli Holdings Co., Ltd. developed a steering knuckle prototype using PPA prepregs and compounds.

    A Bird's Eye View of the Market

    The heat-resistant PPA prepreg market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 46% by 2032, driven by the factors, such as increasing production of automobiles (ICEVs and EVs) and rising demand for hydrogen pressure vessels.

    Solvay, Arkema, and DSM are the leading players involved in the market. Although the PPA prepreg business is at the introductory stage, it is anticipated that the market may follow the thermoplastic prepreg business path with companies having the capabilities of thermoplastic resins (PPA) having a high likelihood to enter the market.

    Europe is estimated to be dominant in the foreseeable future. Europe is likely to be an early adopter of the PPA prepreg, the way the region became the master of thermoplastic prepreg. In addition, the region is home to the three companies (Solvay, Arkema, and DSM) that are currently involved in the PPA prepreg market.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing region in the foreseeable future, majorly influenced by the increasing developments in the automotive industry (especially in the EV marketspace) in Japan and China.

    The automotive end-use industry is expected to be dominant in the market in the coming years. This is because the primary applications of PPA prepreg are currently circled in the automotive industry. In addition, with the increasing demand for EVs, EV battery enclosure (under-the-hood component) would likely be a high-potential application for PPA prepregs in the long run.

    The heat-resistant PPA prepreg market is likely to reach US$ 22.9 million in 2032.
