Global Thermoplastic Prepreg Industry to 2026


DUBLIN, August 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Thermoplastic Prepregs: Global Market” report has been added to’s offer.

This report will cover the Thermoplastic Prepreg industry. Definitive and detailed global market estimates and forecasts are provided, followed by detailed region, country, and application analysis. Additionally, the ongoing market trends, market growth drivers and challenges hampering the market are discussed.

The market size and estimates will be provided in terms of revenue considering 2020 as the base year, and the market forecast will be given from 2021 to 2026. The market size at regional level (regions by end-use) and country level (countries by end use) will also be covered. The impact of COVID-19 is also considered when deriving market estimates.

The main difference between thermoset and thermoplastic prepregs is that thermoplastic prepregs are stable at room temperature, have increased toughness and better recyclability. The chemical properties of the thermoset are permanently enhanced when exposed to heat. Once thermoset plastics are weathered by exposure to heat, they cannot be remolded. Thermoplastics, on the other hand, can be reheated and remolded without changing their chemical composition.

Global markets, Thermoplastic Prepreg segments and growth forecast to 2026 are offered. Sales value estimates are based on prices in the supply chain. The driving forces of the market and the structure of the industry are examined. International aspects are analyzed for all regions of the world and for types of thermoplastic prepregs. Profiles of major global manufacturers are presented.

This report examines the impact of COVID-19. In 2020, the growth rate of manufacturing industries around the world has been hit hard by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has halted progress in all regional economies. Various governments around the world are taking the necessary steps to contain the economic downturn.

The thermoplastic prepreg market is further segmented by type of reinforcement: fiberglass prepreg, carbon fiber prepreg, and others (aramid, hybrid, etc.). By end use, the market is segmented into aerospace and defense, automotive, wind energy, sports and leisure, and electronics (including civil engineering, marine, etc.).
