Carbon fiber prepreg is a conventional carbon fiber material that is specially pre-impregnated with catalyzed resins. The resin is mixed with its hardener in the prepreg form. The prepreg form allows carbon fibers to be impregnated on a flat workable surface. The carbon fiber prepreg is required to be stored at very low temperatures to prevent the resin from getting cured before the application. Carbon fiber prepregs should be kept at around –20?C, otherwise they may get cured even before application, and this creates problems especially during processes such as polymer injection molding and extrusion molding.

The manufacturing of prepreg parts involves the application of pressure, resulting in excellent fiber consolidation, further enhancing the structural performance of the composite. Carbon fiber prepreg application requires a composite vacuum pump, vacuum bagging supplies, and high temperature tolerant molds and oven to cure the parts. Presently, carbon fiber prepregs are extensively used due to the rising demand from the aerospace, automobile, and wind turbine industries owing to the properties such as high strength, light weight, and chemical resistance. The commonly employed methods for the synthesis of carbon fiber prepregs are hot melt process and solvent dip process.

The carbon fiber prepreg market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for fuel efficient vehicles. Furthermore, there is increasing demand for carbon fiber prepregs from various applications such as aerospace and defense. The light weight and excellent strength of carbon fiber prepregs attracts manufacturers, retailers, and consumers, and thereby have become key factors driving the expansion of this market. Moreover, increasing usage of carbon fiber prepregs for the manufacture of sports goods, such as tennis rackets, bicycles, fishing rods, and golf shafts is further propelling the expansion of the market. However, high processing and manufacturing costs of carbon fiber prepregs, along with issues related to their recyclability, are major factors that are expected to restrain the expansion of the carbon fiber prepreg market
