This report, from Stratview Research, studies the high-temperature prepreg market over the trend period of 2013 to 2018 and forecast period of 2019 to 2024. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
High-Temperature Prepreg Market: Highlights
High-temperature prepregs are majorly used in the aerospace & defense and transportation industries. In aerospace & defense, they are mainly used in primary and secondary structures so that they can operate at temperatures reaching 350°C or above. The material currently occupies less than 1% of the total prepreg market in terms of both value and volume but is expected to witness a higher growth as compared to the overall prepreg market in the foreseen future. Major prepreg manufacturers are increasingly focusing on high-temperature prepregs to gain the leading position in the segment.
As per Stratview Research, the global high-temperature prepreg market is projected to grow at an impressive rate over the next five years to reach US$ 538.0 million in 2024. Increasing penetration of composites in the aerospace & defense and automotive industries is chiefly driving the demand for high-temperature prepregs. Furthermore, increasing use of high-temperature-resistant composites for the construction of structural applications coupled with increasing production rates of the next-generation fighter aircraft, F-35, substantiates the growth of the market. Additionally, rising demand for fast-curing prepregs for mass-produced vehicles and longer wind blades, and superior performance benefits of high-temperature prepregs assure higher growth of high-temperature prepregs than the overall prepregs market in the coming five years.
The aircraft industry is witnessing a gradual change towards usage of a hotter engine to increase its performance and the propulsion rate. This is creating a dire need for high-temperature prepregs in various aero engine applications. Hot air engine duct is one such example, where high-temperature prepregs are gaining a considerable share to fulfill the industry demand. A similar trend has been noticed in the automotive industry as well. Engines are getting hotter and under-the-hood space is getting squeezed to make vehicles more compact. High-temperature prepregs are expected to play a vital role in the automotive industry as well to meet the increasing requirement from various automotive OEMs and tier players.
Aerospace & defense is likely to remain the most dominant industrial segment during the forecast period. Increasing production rates of high-temperature composite rich fighter aircraft: F-35, is likely to give the impetus to the demand for high-temperature prepregs in the industry. Lockheed Martin’s F-35 is the best-selling 5th generation fighter aircraft, which incorporates high-temperature composite prepregs substantially. About 35% of the F-35 aircraft’s structural weight is composites and about 50% of which is made up of high-temperature prepregs.
The research’s findings suggest that autoclave curing is projected to maintain its dominance in the market over the next five years. Aircraft primary structures, such as wings, fuselages, and empennage components, are mostly fabricated by using composite materials and cured through an autoclave process. High pressure of autoclave ensures good mechanical properties and helps reduce void contents. Out-of-autoclave and other segments are also likely to witness healthy growth rates in the market during the forecast period.
In terms of region, North America is projected to remain the largest market for high-temperature prepregs during the forecast period, driven by the presence of leading aircraft OEMs, aeroengine manufacturers, tier players, prepreg manufacturers, and raw material suppliers. Europe is projected to remain the second largest market in the same period. Dassault Aviation, BAE Systems, and Airbus Group are some of the key OEMs in the region, which are driving the demand for the material in the European market.
Key high-temperature prepreg manufacturers include Solvay S.A., Koninklijke TenCate nv, Hexcel Corporation, Gurit Holding AG, Park Electrochemical Corporation, and Renegade Material Corporation. Development of low-cost high-temperature prepregs with ease of manufacturing process, improvement in performance, and forming strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
