According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Carbon Fiber Prepreg Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global carbon fiber prepreg market reached a value of US$ 8.9 Billion in 2021. Prepreg refers to a molding or reinforcing material that is impregnated using synthetic resin. Carbon fiber prepreg is usually manufactured by combining carbon fibers with thermoset resins, including phenols and thermoplastics. Generally manufactured via the hot melt or solvent dip processes, it exhibits enhanced strength and stiffness with excellent corrosion resistivity. As a result, it is widely used as a preferred alternative to metallic alloys and thermoset composites due to its ability to withstand extreme temperature and resistance to chemicals, fire and moisture.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Carbon Fiber Prepreg Market Trends:
