Glass fiber prepreg is the foundation of composites industry. It is often the best all-purpose choice among reinforcements for creating composite parts with excellent strength, low weight, and dimensional stability. The versatility of glass as a fiber makes it a unique industrial textile material.

 

The major driving forces for the glass fiber prepreg market are its increasing use in different applications and the capacity expansion by the key market players. Due to environmental regulations regarding CO2 emissions in the U.S. and Europe, composites are seen as a substitute for aluminium and steel in high-end cars. Increasing use of composites will further drive the global glass fiber prepreg market in coming years. In addition, the growing demand from aerospace application owing to the increasing delivery numbers of aircraft , along with the user friendly characteristics of glass fiber prepreg are  major factors that will drive this market in coming years.

 

The global glass fiber prepreg market was valued at $1,014.0 million in 2014, which is expected to reach $1,453.7 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.5%. North America dominates the global market for glass fiber prepreg, having accounted for a 37.6% share in 2014, followed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to become a major market for glass fiber prepreg market with the highest growth rate of 9.9% in coming years.

 

In December 2014, Hexcel Corporation (U.S.) acquired 50% interest in Formax UK Limited (U.K.). Hexcel acquired this company to advance the knitting technology for future aerospace applications and provide scale for growing industrial markets. This will help the company to develop its range of stitch-bonded reinforcements (including glass fiber).

 

In March 2013, TenCate Advanced Composites (Netherlands) and BASF (Germany) announced that Owens Corning (U.S.) has joined as a partner in their strategic alliance for thermoplastic automotive composites. The goal of this alliance was to develop optimal solutions in thermoplastic composites for automotive mass production.

Glass fiber in fabric form offers an excellent combination of properties, for instance high strength and fire resistance. It is the best all-purpose choice among reinforcements for creating composite parts with excellent strength, low weight, and dimensional stability. The key advantages of glass fiber prepreg are high specific strength, corrosion resistance, consistent quality, and speed in manufacturing. These properties of glass as a fiber make it a unique industrial textile material.

 

The global glass fiber prepreg market was valued at $1,014.0 million in 2014, and is projected to reach $1,453.67 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period of 2014 to 2019. It is projected to reach a volume of 106.7 KT by 2019, at a CAGR of 6.81% during the forecast period. The rising demand for glass fiber prepreg from various applications (for instance, automotive, aerospace and defense), recent developments by the key players (for instance, Hexcel Corporation (U.S.), Cytec Industries (U.S.), and Toray Industries (Japan)), and low price as compared to carbon fiber are some of the key factors driving the global glass fiber prepreg market. On the other hand, the irreparable damage of glass fiber prepreg and increasing costs of raw materials (resin and glass fiber) are expected to restrain the growth of the market  Mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, joint ventures, and expansions are the major strategies adopted by the  companies to achieve growth in the glass fiber prepreg market..

 

North America dominates the global market for glass fiber prepreg, having accounted for a 37.6% share in 2014, followed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to become a major market for the glass fiber prepreg with the highest growth rate of 9.9% during the forecast period.

 

The global glass fiber prepreg market has been broadly classified on the basis of application and ingredient. The applications include aerospace & defense, sporting goods, automotive, wind power, and other applications. On the basis of ingredients, the market is segmented into glass fiber and resins.

 

Key players in the global glass fiber prepreg market include Hexcel Corporation (U.S.), Cytec Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Gurit Holding AG (Switzerland), SGL Group, Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), TenCate Advanced Composites (Netherlands), Axiom Materials, Inc. (U.S.), Mitsubishi Rayon Co., Ltd. (Japan), and Teijin Limited (Japan).
