Prepreg has a high strength-to-weight ratio, high resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and fire resistance; therefore, it is favored by manufacturers over its metallic counterparts for use in commercial and industrial applications. It is created by pre-impregnating fibers, including glass, carbon, and aramid, onto a matrix material. Carbon fiber prepregs are made from carbon fibers with thermoset resins such as epoxy and phenols; and thermoplastic resins such as PEEK. Industries such as aerospace and defense, wind energy, sports, and automotive are the major end-users of carbon fiber prepregs.

The analysts forecast global carbon fiber prepreg market to grow at a CAGR of 11.58% over the period 2014-2019.
