[170+ Pages Research Report] E-Glass market to surpass USD 39.4 billion by 2030 from USD 28.4 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 3.33% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.

Product Overview

Glass fiber is a versatile industrial material that can be made from a variety of basic materials. Transparency, hardness, chemical attack resistance, and stability, as well as fiber qualities including stiffness, flexibility, and strength, are all present in it. Printed circuit boards, structural composites, and a variety of special-purpose items are all made with glass fibers. The letter "e" stands for "electrical grade" in e-glass (also known as e-class glass fiber), indicating its low electrical conductivity. E-glass is recognized for having low thermal expansion coefficients, making it more resistant to thermal shock than regular glass. It is resistant to thermal shock and is commonly used to make glassware for use in labs, kitchens, and other general applications. E-glass was originally designed as insulators for electrical wire standoffs. It was also discovered to have outstanding fiber-forming properties.

Market Highlights

E-Glass Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 3.33% in 2030

Growing demand for glass fibers from the construction, automotive & transportation, wind energy, and aerospace industries, as well as product features such as high tensile strength, lightweight, flexibility, thermal & electrical resistance at low cost, and increasing demand for fuel-efficient and high load-bearing capacity, are expected to propel the market forward during the forecast period.

E-Glass Market: Segments

Reinforcement agent segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

E-Glass market is segmented by Application into Reinforcement agents (glass fiber composites), Glassware, Insulation, Semiconductors, Lighting, Optics, and others. Among these the Reinforcement agent category is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Due to its extensive applicability in different sectors such as GRP & GRE pipes, storage tanks, traffic lights, car body parts, rowing shells & oars, helmets, surfboards, tent poles, ship hulls, antenna covers & structures, and others, this category is expected to lead the market.

Wind turbine segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

E-Glass market is segmented by End-User into Transportation, Building & Construction, Industrial, Wind turbine, Consumer goods, Electronics, and others. Among these Wind turbine segments is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing amount of wind energy plants has benefited in meeting global energy demands. The usage of e-glass fiber in the wind energy sector has also changed the market's growth trajectory.

Market Dynamics


Increasing use of fiberglass composites in the automotive industry

Fiberglass offers a better strength-to-weight ratio, which is a key consideration in the auto sector. Vehicles constructed with lightweight, high-strength components provide better mileage and fuel efficiency. To minimize carbon dioxide emissions, the automobile sector has been subjected to stringent restrictions. As a result, the industry has been encouraged to create fuel-efficient lightweight vehicles in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In the automobile industry, fiberglass composite is widely utilized as an alternative for aluminum and steel in the production of lightweight vehicles thus boosting the E glass market.


Recycling issues

The recycling of glass wool is a major restraint to the expansion of the fiberglass market. Glass wool material, as well as the mask and protective gear worn by workers participating in the disposal procedure, must be disposed of using proper disposal processes. Furthermore, as public awareness of waste management regulations and environmental legislation grows, engineering materials from goods such as vehicles, wind turbines, and airplanes that have outlived their useful lives must now be properly collected and recycled. Therefore, proper recycling methods for glass wool and other composite materials are becoming increasingly vital for the E-glass market in long-term growth.
