Global Glass Fiber Market Everything You Need to Know

Glass fibre is a widely used industrial material. It comprises multiple fine glass fibres. Glass fibres are mixed in yarn and then weaved into fabrics. They are lightweight, strong, and robust. Due to its bulk weight and strength, most industries use glass fibres as an alternative to metal.


Glass fibres are beneficial because of their large surface area-to-weight ratio. They are made from silica, limestone, and other compounds. The process is carried out in three stages, melting, extruding, and cooling.


Glass fibres are used for many purposes due to their flexibility and microscopic properties. Their application includes home furnishing fabrics, tires, boat hulls and seats, fishing rods, reinforced plastic, and garments and apparel. Additionally, heated glass fibres are used in heat shields for aeronautical gear, nose cones, and exhaust nozzles.


As of 2021, the global glass fibre market was estimated to be $17,195.40 million. However, the global glass fibre market will likely reach $25232.22281 million by 2028 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.60%.


The use of glass fibre is expected to expand the global glass fibre market. Glass fibre is used in many end-user industries, including marine, automobiles, wind energy, consumer goods, architecture, and electrical and electronics. The high demand for glass composites for bathtubs, circuit boards, pipes, tanks, and windmill blades increases the market’s growth. Glass fibres have higher performance than regular metals. Its properties, low-thermal strength, high strength and weight ratio, low friction resistance, electrical strength, and fatigue resistance promote the use of glass fibre, resulting in the growth of the global glass fibre market.


However, three main factors restrain the growth of the global glass fibre market – high production costs, disposal issues, and a lack of funding for R&D for specialised synthetic fibres. The COVID-19 pandemic affected the world with travel bans, lockdowns, and business shutdowns. The global glass fibre market was also negatively impacted because of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Due to the pandemic lockdown regulations, the construction and architecture industry faced various issues, including a labour shortage and a construction halt. As a result, the global glass fibre market experienced a break in growth. The travel ban imposed by China, the USA, and throughout Europe interrupted the shipments, contributing as a restraining factor in the growth of the global glass fibre market.


The global glass fibre market is segmented by region, end-user, and application. Based on region, the global glass fibre market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the rest of the world. At the same time, the end-users are segmented into building and construction, transportation, and energy. Additionally, segmenting based on application includes composites and insulation, and others.


Asia-Pacific dominates the global glass fibre market with the most prominent construction industry, generating the highest revenue with almost 60% production share worldwide. North America shares the second highest shares in the global glass fibre market, followed by the rest of the world.


The global glass fibre market has some major players, including BGF Industries, Owens Corning, 3B Fibreglass, Jushi Group, Johns Manville, Nippon Electric Glass Co. Ltd., Taiwan Glass Industries, Corporation, Taishan Fiberglass INC., Asahi Fiber Glass Co., Ltd., and Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation.
