Profuse Demand for Fiberglass Products in Automotive Industries bolsters Overall Growth

The global fiberglass market is increasingly driven by the rising demand for fiberglass products in the end-use industries of automotive and construction. The rising demand for automotive fiberglass products across the world is one of the key factors bolstering its uptake in the automotive manufacturing. Substantial demand is on the account of the characteristics of fiberglass to be suitable for high-strength structural shapes, rendering its use increasingly attractive for the transit sector.

Moreover, the growing use of fiberglass products for structural reinforcements that are used in crash protection systems of vehicles is a crucial factor boosting the fiberglass market. A great deal for the demand comes from the rising need for mechanically strong but light-weight materials in vehicle structures so as to make them fuel-efficient.

Growing Use in Thermal and Electrical Applications accounts for Rising Revenues

The fiberglass market is also witnessing robust impetus from the rising use of fiberglass products in the building and construction applications, notably in fabrication of ladders, roofs, walls, panels, and windows. Growing infrastructural spending in developing and developed economies will catalyze the uptake in the construction industry.

The extensive use of glass wool as one of the most attractive forms of insulation worldwide is a notable factor bolstering the expansion of the fiberglass market. The drive for the use of fiberglass in thermal and electrical insulation applications can be attributed to a wide array of acoustic and thermal properties. Furthermore, the global fiberglass market is witnessing a window of potential opportunities in the renewable energy sector, particularly for fabricating wind turbines.

The substantially rising demand for fiberglass in consumer durable products, including electronics, is expanding the potential, creating wealth of opportunities for fiberglass manufacturers. Furthermore, the rising potential for fiberglass products for applications used in energy conservation solutions is also unlocking new prospects of the fiberglass market.
