Trends, opportunities and forecast in European glass fiber market to 2025 by application (marine, transportation, pipe and tank, aerospace, construction, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, wind energy, and others), product type (single end roving, multi end roving, woven roving, fabrics, CSM, CFM, DUCS, and CS), manufacturing process (hand lay up, spray up, resin infusion, pultrusion, injection molding, compression molding, prepreg layups, and others), country (Germany, France, Italy)

The future of the European glass fiber market is promising with opportunities in the transportation, construction, electrical and electronics, pipe and tank, wind energy, and consumer goods industries. The global European glass fiber market is expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach an estimated $2.0 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 1% to 3% from 2020 to 2025. The major growth driver for this market is rise in demand for products made of glass composites; these include pipes, tanks, wind blades, bathtubs, and automotive parts.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the European glass fiber industry, include cost optimization and performance enhancement of glass fibers.

Glass fiber opportunities have evolved through number of stages as presented in figure below:

Some of the European glass fiber companies profiled in this report include Owens Corning, Johns Manville, 3B glass fiber, Nippon Electric Glass and Lanxess and others.

On the basis of its comprehensive research, The analyst forecasts that E (ECR) glass is expected to be the largest product type of glass fiber by value and volume over the forecast period.

Within the European glass fiber market, transportation is expected to remain the largest and witness the highest growth market by value and volume consumption. Government regulations, such as carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for glass fiber in the transportation industry.

In terms of supply, the European glass fiber capacity was ~1.9 billion pound in 2017.
The analyst predicts that the glass fiber plant capacity utilization will go down in 2018 as glass fiber suppliers increase production capacity. For example, in 2018, Owens Corning plans to build additional capacity in France, and Sisecam Group is installing a new plant in Turkey.
