    “The Aircraft Interior Prepreg Market size was US$ 0.32 billion in 2023 and is likely to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.1%, in the long run, to reach US$ 0.45 billion in 2030.”

    Market Dynamics

    Introduction

    Prepreg is among the most preferred materials for constructing reinforced plastic parts in aircraft interiors. A wide variety of material combinations are used for making prepreg suitable for interior applications. Glass and carbon fibers are the most widely used reinforcements. In contrast, phenolic and epoxy are the widely used matrices. With the growing demand for fuel efficiency, there has been a constant increase in the use of prepreg in aircraft interiors. The excellent FST performance of prepreg makes it an uncontested claimant in the interior applications.

    The pandemic brought forth several unforeseen challenges before the aerospace industry stakeholders. The devastating impact of the pandemic was witnessed in the prepreg business with a mammoth decline of about 35%. The recovery of the aerospace industry, particularly rising aircraft production rates, is bringing back the charm of the aerospace interior prepreg business. The market is rapidly moving towards pre-pandemic levels and is set to reach new heights in the coming years.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    A huge number of strategic alliances including M&As, JVs, etc. have been performed over the past few years:

    • In April 2022, Isovolta Group closed the acquisition of Gurit’s aerospace business unit to expand its composite production facility in Kassel. The acquisition helped the company to strengthen its market presence.
    • In December 2023, Solvay spun off its specialty business which has now been renamed Syensqo.

    Market Drivers:

    • Increasing production rates of key aircraft programs (A320neo, B737Max, A350XWB, B787, and A220)
    • Upcoming entry of new programs (B777x, C919, etc.)
