Glass Fiber Reinforcement Materials Market by Product Type (Roving, Woven Roving, Fabrics, CSM/CFM, Chopped Strand, and Others) and End-Use Industry (Construction, Transportation, Industrial, Consumer Goods, Wind Energy, and Others) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

The global glass fiber reinforcement materials market is expected to reach $14,084 million by 2022 from $8,468 million in 2015, with a CAGR of 7.6% from 2016 to 2022. Glass fiber consist of extremely thin fibers of glass and is used to make fiberglass, used in construction and transportation industries. Glass fiber is the most commonly used fiber in the reinforcement market, due to its advantages over others, such as, low cost, strength, durability, high impact resistance, and several others.

The driving factors of the global glass fiber reinforcement materials market are the growth in demand for glass fiber from the construction and transportation sector, substitution of heavy metal parts by glass fiber in the aerospace industry, and low cost, light weight and durability of glass fibers. However, issues regarding the recycling of glass fiber reinforced plastics may hinder the demand of glass fiber. Moreover, numerous growth opportunities exist for use of glass fiber in wind turbines and the development of hybrid structures, be it carbon-glass hybrid or hybrid of different grades of glass fiber only.

Glass fiber reinforcement materials market is segmented into product type, end user, and geography. On the basis of product type, the glass fiber reinforcement materials market is categorized into roving, woven roving, fabrics, CSM (Chopped Strand Mat)/CFM (Continuous Filament Mat), chopped strand, and others that includes multi-axial. Based on end-use industry, it is classified into construction, transportation, industrial, consumer goods, wind energy, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The key players of glass fiber reinforcement materials market have adopted several developmental strategies such as product launches & agreements to improve their product portfolio and geographic reach in the global glass fiber reinforcement materials market. For instance, 3B-Fiberglass, one of the leading fiberglass manufacturer, launched DS 1125-10N, an innovative chopped strand used for making variable range of polyamides in March 2016. Another example is the launch of a new PipeStrand range of products for use in high- and low-pressure filament winding applications by Owens Corning in March 2016.
