Glass Fibers market: Segmented: by End use (Composites, Insulation); by Resin Type (Thermoset Resins, Thermoplastic Resins) and Region - Global Analysis of Market Size, Share & Trends for 2019-2020 and Forecasts to 2030
Glass Fibers market to surpass USD 17.6 billion by 2030 from USD 11 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 4.3 % in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.
Fiberglass is a strong, lightweight material made up of thin glass fibers that can be woven into a woven layer or used as support. Fiberglass is weaker and stiffer than carbon fiber composites, but it is less brittle and less expensive. Fiberglass is a versatile material that is widely used in the composites sector. Excellent strength, low weight, bendability, and dimensional stability have all been demonstrated. Fiberglass is utilized in a variety of applications, including aircraft, boats, vehicles, swimming pools, storage tanks, roofing, pipelines, cladding, and casts.
The significant use of fiberglass in the construction and infrastructure industries, as well as the rising usage of fiberglass composites in the automotive industry, are two major factors driving the expansion of the fiberglass market.
Global Glass Fibers Market is segmented by end-use into Composites, Insulation. During the period 2021-2030, the composites category is expected to lead the global fiberglass market. The low cost, lightweight, and corrosion-resistant features of GFRP composites, as well as their high strength and ease of availability, are driving growing demand. The demand for FRP composites in the automotive, aerospace, and wind energy industries is predicted to increase as a result of these causes.
Global Glass Fibers market is divided by resin type into Thermoset Resins, Thermoplastic Resins. Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) and other hybrid resins are among the thermoplastic resins present on the global market. Compared to thermoset composites, thermoplastic resins are more impact resistant and may also reform. During the projected period, this aspect is expected to fuel the expansion of the thermoplastic resin segment in the fiberglass market.
Demand in the automotive industry
Fiberglass offers a greater strength-to-weight ratio, which is a key consideration in the vehicle industry. Vehicles constructed with lightweight, high-strength components provide better mileage and fuel efficiency. To reduce carbon dioxide emissions, the automotive industry has been subjected to stringent regulations. As a result, the industry has been urged to introduce fuel-efficient lightweight automobiles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In the automotive industry, fiberglass composite is widely employed as an alternative to aluminum and steel in the production of lightweight vehicles.
Use in wind turbines
The worldwide capacity for fossil fuels is dwindling. As a result, increasing the usage of renewable energy sources is critical. One of the most important renewable energy sources is wind energy. The fiberglass market is being driven by the growing need for wind energy. In wind turbines, fiberglass composites are utilized to strengthen the blades and give high fatigue and corrosion resistance.
Glass recycling issues
The recycling of glass wool is a key impediment to the growth of the fiberglass business. Glass wool material, as well as the mask and protective clothes worn by individuals involved in the disposal procedure, must be disposed of using proper disposal processes. Furthermore, as public knowledge of waste management regulations and environmental legislation grows, engineering materials from items such as vehicles, wind turbines, and aircraft that have outlived their useful lives must now be properly recovered and recycled. As a result, proper recycling solutions for glass wool and other composite materials are becoming increasingly crucial for the fiberglass industry's long-term growth.
