Wind energy is emerging as a low-cost renewable source of energy for the generation of electricity, with developed regions like North America and Western Europe accounting for the highest investments in total wind tower installations across the globe. It has a high-potential application area for carbon fiber composites, with turbine blades being the fastest growing product in this segment. Thermoset prepregs are widely used for the manufacture of wind turbines as these exhibit superior performance characteristics such as high strength-to-weight ratio and durability. Moreover, the introduction of new low-cost carbon fiber prepregs for wind energy applications is expected to lead to the manufacture of wind turbine blades that are stronger, lighter, and longer, thereby create more energy compared with shorter blades. Thus, wind power capacity additions is one of the key prepreg market driver, which will significantly influence the growth of the market.

Demand for Lightweight Materials in Automotive Sector will be a Key Market Trend

The demand for lightweight materials in the automotive sector is one of the major trends driving prepreg market growth. The rising demand for improved and fuel-efficient automobiles has induced manufacturers to adopt lightweight materials. The shift in preference from E-glass to carbon fiber composite materials is on the rise for lightweight and fuel-efficient automobiles. Moreover, the advancement in R&D in carbon fiber manufacturing companies allows the implementation of carbon composite materials to different structures in an automobile. The reduction of weight using carbon fiber composites has in turn assisted the OEMs in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Furthermore, the carbon fiber prepregs are also used in automobile body parts, and the automobile sector is likely to undergo steady progress toward material change in key automotive segments like powertrain, chassis, exterior, and interior, which will also propel this prepreg market growth.
