Report scope & Overview:
Tow Prepreg Market Size was valued at USD 314.71 million in 2022, and expected to reach USD 790.43 million by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 12.2 % over the forecast period 2023-2030.
Tow prepregs are made of strands of glass fibre, carbon, and a binding material called duro plastic resin. The growth of the tow prepreg market is driven by the increasing use of tow prepregs in a wide range of industries and the rising demand for lightweight and cost-effective materials. During the forecast period, the demand for tow prepregs is also expected to rise due to rapid urbanisation, economic growth, and large investments in research and development.
Impact of Covid-19:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the market for tow prepreg is expected to go down in 2020. The entire world has been hurt by this deadly virus, especially the APAC and European regions. To stop this virus from spreading even more, businesses have shut down their operations and factories, and the government has put limits on building. Because of this, the amount of Tow prepreg used in all applications has gone down.
COVID-19 and other regulations, like long processes for getting permits, have slowed down the production of end-use industries, which has decreased the need for tow prepreg. But the demand for tow prepreg should rise again in 2021. China was the first country to be affected by COVID-19, which messed up the global tow prepreg supply chain and slowed down manufacturing in a number of industries that use tow prepreg. But the aerospace and defence, automotive and transportation, and other industries have started making things again and are expected to get back to normal soon. This has caused the demand for tow prepreg to go up.

The tow prepreg market is expected to be one of the largest in Europe. This is because BMW, BAE Systems, Airbus, and other large manufacturers in the area make cars and aeroplanes. The growth of the aerospace, wind energy, automotive, and military industries in France and Germany is also driving the market in Europe. Germany has the largest market for cars in Europe. In these countries, the government and environmental groups are putting a lot of pressure on manufacturers to reduce carbon emissions. Because of this, OEMs are using more and more tow prepregs in cars.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.
Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
