[170+ Pages Research Report] E-glass fibre market to surpass USD 17.25 billion by 2030 from USD 8.6 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 7.21% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.

Product Overview

E-glass fiber has been used as a high-temperature insulator for electrical conductors in large-scale industrial applications since 1930. E-glass fibres are the most widely used in the textile sector and in composite materials, accounting for 90% of all reinforcements. The resilience to high temperatures and outstanding electrical insulating characteristics of this high-quality fiber set it apart. This fiber is rot-proof, chemically resistant, and dimensionally stable, even when subjected to significant changes in humidity and temperature. E-glass fiber materials are particularly abrasion and vibration resistant, as well as extremely flexible. The specific resistance of glass threads is greater than that of steel threads (tensile strength/volumetric mass). This property allows glass threads to be developed to strengthen high-performance composites.

Market Highlights

E-glass fiber market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 7.21% in 2030

E-glass fiber yarn & roving market size is expected to grow due to rising demand for glass fibers from the automotive & transportation, construction, wind energy, pipes & tanks, and aerospace industries. These lightweight materials provide excellent tensile strength, flexibility, thermal and electrical resistance at a low cost. As the construction industry places a greater emphasis on energy saving, the market for E-glass fiber yarn and roving for use as insulating materials is projected to expand.

E-glass fiber Market: Segments

E/ECR-Glass Fiber segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

E-glass fiber market is segmented by Fiber type into E/ECR-Glass Fiber, S-Glass Fiber, C-Glass Fiber, and Others. Among these the E/ECR-Glass category dominated the market in 2019, accounting for the bulk of global shares. In comparison to E-glass fiber, ECR-glass fiber, also known as electronic glass fiber, has higher mechanical strength, a better waterproofing ratio, and electrical acidic and alkali corrosion resistance. It is utilized in the production of transparent GRP panels. During the projected period, this sector will grow due to increased demand from different end-use industries.

Transportation segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

E-glass fiber market is segmented by Application into Automotive & Transportation, Construction, Wind Energy, Pipes & tanks. Among these, the transportation segment had the highest revenue share in 2019. Roof panels, doors, windows, cooling ventilators, baggage bins, seats, and headrest back panels are some of the uses for glass fiber in the transportation industry. The strength-to-weight ratio of glass fiber is higher, which is an important element in vehicle manufacture. These factors are expected to accelerate the growth of the glass fibre market in the transportation industry during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics


Growing Demand for Glass Fibers from Construction Industry

The need for glass fibres is projected to rise as the global construction industry grows. The market for glass fibres is being boosted by new residential development in developed countries such as the United States. Developing economies, such as China and India, are experiencing a rapid economic expansion, which is leading in robust infrastructure construction. Construction of new buildings, maintenance and repairs, remodeling, or upgrading existing structures, on-site assembly of precut; construction of temporary buildings; and installation of specialist building utilities such as elevators and escalators are all increasing in these nations. Glass fiber consumption in construction industries is expected to rise as a result of all of these causes.


Strict Regulation

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 fiber market in long-term growth.
