Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market

Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg: Introduction

  • Increase in global population has led to need for smart mobility, smart architecture, and smart energy solutions. Rise in demand for innovations that combine resilience with lower maintenance and high performance is likely to be a key factor propelling the non-woven composites industry in the near future.
  • Non-woven glass fiber prepreg is a strong composite material with exceptional mechanical properties. The non-woven prepreg process starts with the formation of glass fiber mesh and subsequent bonding of the mesh with reinforcing chemicals. The combination of reinforcing glass fiber and resin matrix is called prepreg.
  • Production of non-woven prepreg entails a clean process and facilitates better conformity and quality of end-product. Characteristics such as good fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance, and ease of use associated with non-woven glass fiber prepreg make it a preferred material in most end-use industries.

Key Drivers of Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market

  • The use of non-woven fibers has been rising substantially of late. Most of the automobile manufacturers are shifting toward high-performance composites because of its advantages. Non-woven glass fiber prepreg can help lower vehicle emissions, enhance energy efficiency, and increase safety at reduced program costs.
  • Several automotive parts such as trunk liners, carpets, and air and fuel filters are made with non-woven fabrics. Increase in demand for lightweight vehicles is expected to augment the non-woven glass fiber prepreg market during the forecast period.
  • Wind energy is expected to present significant potential for non-woven glass fiber prepreg in the near future, driven by increase in wind energy installations worldwide. Non-woven glass fiber prepreg based wind turbine blades provide higher load bearing capacity as compared to woven prepreg based blades and are highly suitable for longer wind blades.
  • Rise in demand for renewable energy sources for generating electricity and gradual decrease in cost of wind energy are anticipated to boost the installation of wind turbines during the forecast period. Companies are increasing the length of wind blades. These wind blades need a material with high load bearing capability. Rise in efficient wind farm configurations that require larger wind turbine blades is projected to be a key factor propelling the non-woven glass fiber prepreg market.
  • Relatively higher cost of prepreg fibers is expected to act as a factor restraining the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market during the forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact on Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market

  • The global non-woven composites industry is projected to contract substantially post the coronavirus pandemic, owing to the rising feedstock costs and poor demand
  • The global spread of COVID-19 has substantially disrupted the supply chain in the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market. Low production rates, stockpiled inventory issues, and decreased labor availability are likely to be significant supply-side factors hampering the non-woven glass fiber prepreg market in the near future. Weakened consumer sentiment is also estimated to be a prominent demand-side factor adversely affecting the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market.

Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market: End-use Industry Segments

  • Based on end-use industry, the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market can be divided into automotive, aerospace & defense, wind energy, electrical & electronics, and others
  • Automotive manufacturers have been substituting metal parts with composites in order to achieve weight reduction. The vehicle weight and fuel consumption are co-related; for instance, every single 100 kg saving in weight of vehicle can result in reduction of fuel consumption by approximately 0.4L/100 km from cars. Of late, the automotive industry in the U.S. and EU has been observing stringent regulations pertaining to vehicular weight reduction.
  • The aerospace industry was the major consumer of non-woven glass fiber prepreg until recently. These were used in applications including military jets, civil aircraft, aero-engines, helicopters, space satellite, and launchers. The industry is expected to exhibit similar level of demand again by 2025.

Asia Pacific to be Key Region of Global Non-woven Glass Fiber Prepreg Market

  • In terms of region, the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is estimated to lead the global non-woven glass fiber prepreg market during the forecast period. China’s leading position in terms of production and consumption of non-woven glass fiber prepreg is likely to boost the region’s market share by 2030. Asia Pacific is the largest market for wind turbine installations, the most prominent region for manufacture of electrical and electronic components, the fastest growing aerospace industry, and significant hub for automotive producers. This is projected to present strong growth opportunities for the non-woven glass fiber prepreg market during the forecast period.
