In addition, the increasing focus of key market players on introduction products with more improved properties and at affordable cost, so that the large number manufacturers can opt and improved their product portfolio, is likely to bode well for the demand and growth of the market. For instance, in September 2021, Notus Composites, introduced NE7 low-temperature curing prepreg system. The newly developed system will allow the composite manufacturers at temperature as low as 70 C, while reducing the energy consumption.

Moreover, bio-based carbon prepregs that are made up of renewable resources such as plant fibers or biopolymers in place of several petroleum-based materials, as these materials offer similar mechanical properties to traditional carbon prepregs but while having a lower environmental impact, is also likely to have a positive impact on the market and will push the growth forward in the near future.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the carbon prepreg market. The rapid emergence of deadly coronavirus across the globe has forced countries to impose lockdowns and several other stringent regulations on trade activities, which has resulted in temporary closure of manufacturing facilities and high disruptions in the global supply chains, that declined the demand for the product worldwide.
