Fiberglass Market: E-Class Product Type to Hold Significant Revenue Share During the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis 2013 – 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 – 2028

Report Description

The global Fiberglass (Glass Fiber) Market was estimated to be around US$ 8,347.2 million in 2017. The global market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period (2018–2028).

Factors Influencing the Global Fiberglass (Glass Fiber) Market Growth

Construction of the water supply systems and increase in the oil and gas exploration activities have led to a surge in demand for various fiberglass (glass fiber) products such as pipes & tanks, bathtubs and FRP panels during the forecast period in the MEA region. Fiberglass (Glass Fiber) is corrosion resistant and can withstand high temperatures and adverse conditions, due to which manufacturers prefer opting for fiberglass as an important manufacturing component. Attributed to these factors, demand for fiberglass continues to remain high in countries with high humidity level, extreme temperature conditions, and high soil salinity. Bound to the corrosion resistant and robust features, manufacturers are focusing on utilizing the fiberglass (glass fiber) in for pipes & tanks, and in water supply and storage applications

With the presence of various fiberglass (glass fiber) end-users in MEA region such as Middle East Fiber Glass (MFG), Gulf Fiberglass Factory (GFGF), Global Fiber Glass (GFG) and ADVANCED Fiberglass Industry LLC, demand for fiberglass (glass fiber) is expected to increase during the forecast period

However, utilizing glass fiber for manufacturing and construction purposes has led to various health problems such as rashes on the skin, irritation in eyes and stomach and soreness in throat and lungs. As small glass fibers have the ability to reach the lower parts of internal organs such as stomach, lungs, and skin, the risk of developing adverse health effects continues to persist among manufacturers and constructors. Due to the adverse effects of glass fiber, growth of the global fiberglass (glass fiber) market is likely to face headwinds during the forecast period.

Major players involved in the fiberglass (glass fiber) market are focusing on acquisition and expansion of their production capacities to enhance their operational efficiency and product portfolio. Also, strategic collaborations and joint venture will improve sales & distribution network of the fiberglass (glass fiber), which in turn is expected to boost growth of the global market during the forecast period.
