Global Out of Autoclave Prepreg Market is segmented By Product(Unidirectional, Fabric,) By Reinforcement Type( Carbon Fiber, Others) By End-use Industry( Aerospace & Defense, Wind Energy, Marine, Others), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2022-2029.

Out of Autoclave Prepreg Market Overview

The Global Out of Autoclave Prepreg Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

  • Autoclave composite manufacturing is an alternative to the traditional high-pressure autoclave curing process that is commonly used by the aerospace industry for manufacturing composite materials.

  • OOA process achieves the same quality as an autoclave but through a different cost-effective and efficient operation. OOA processing offers a more sustainable manufacturing pathway, by preceding the use of an autoclave, while producing autoclave-quality composites, in a cost-efficient way.

  • Out-of-autoclave processing is being increasingly adopted in many end-user industries such as automotive, aerospace, and wind energy, owing to the high-performance characteristics that cross the mandated 1% void content threshold cost-effectively and efficiently which is highly critical for structural applications.

  • The global out-of-autoclave prepreg market by volume accounted for USD YY million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of YY% to reach USD YY million in 2029.

Out of Autoclave Prepreg Market Dynamics and Trends

  • The high-performance characteristics of the composites, and the cost-effective and efficient manufacturing process, when compared to the traditional autoclave technology, are the primary market drivers.

  • Many composite components have been traditionally manufactured using autoclave technology, which is exceptionally capital-intensive, requires high operational costs, and has slow curing-cycle times.

  • Out-of-autoclave composite-curing offers a wide array of benefits over the traditional prepregs, such as cost-effective infrastructure and high-performance characteristics, which has caused many manufacturers to seek the less costly, more versatile, out-of-autoclave composite-curing technologies.

  • For instance, in March 2017, Dow Automotive Systems introduced a new solution for out-of-autoclave prepreg composites, VAUSE, that is designed to work like compression molding to achieve fast cycle times while manufacturing.

  • The new VORAFUSE can be cured in two to five minutes for high-volume manufacturing with potential applications in various structural applications which require strength, stiffness, and lightweight construction

  • However, large components cannot be fabricated, and the manufacturing process has a relatively high possibility of dilution with foreign particles during manufacturing which is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
