Hot melt manufacturing process comprises a major share of the carbon fiber prepreg market in terms of value.

Carbon fiber prepregs are developed and manufactured through two manufacturing processes, namely, hot melt and solvent dip. The hot melt process dominated the overall carbon fiber prepreg market. The machinery required to perform the hot melt process is less complex than the machinery used in the solvent dip process. Furthermore, this process is less hazardous, and no organic solvents are consumed or emitted during operations.

Epoxy resin product type accounts for the largest market share in the global carbon fiber prepreg market during the forecasted period in terms of value.

The market for carbon fiber prepreg is segmented on resin as epoxy, phenolic, BMI, thermoplastic, polyimide, and others. Epoxy resin dominates the overall carbon fiber prepreg market as it is widely applicable in aerospace & defense, automotive, sports & leisure, wind energy, and other industries. Due to their unique molecular structure, epoxy-based carbon fiber prepregs are lightweight and strong and, therefore, can be used in aircraft tails and fuselage.
