Global Fiberglass (Glass Fiber) Market Dynamics  

With the growing need for developing walls, doors, windows, and roofs, demand for fiberglass is likely to remain high in the construction industry. Glass fiber is also used as a composite in the construction industry. Manufacturers are utilizing GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete), which contains hydrated cement, glass fibers and sand for diverse construction purposes. Incorporation of the fiberglass enables manufacturers to integrate robust features such as anti-corrosiveness, high compressive strength, tensile strength and lightweight. In addition, manufacturers prefer utilizing fiberglass pertaining to the low maintenance cost and erosion. On the account of these factors, growth of the global market is expected to remain positive over the coming years.

Further, growing number of construction projects in various developing countries such as India, Brazil, and China have led manufacturers to invest in fiberglass as an effective insulation component. As fiberglass continues to remain a cheaper alternative for insulation in the construction industry, the global fiberglass (glass fiber) market is likely to witness a significant growth during the forecast period

However, increasing instances of health hazards such as rashes on the skin, irritation in eyes and stomach and soreness in throat and lungs among workers and constructors due to fiberglass have posed challenges to the market growth. As the small glass fibers have the ability to reach the lower parts of internal organs such as stomach, lungs, and skin, risks related to adverse health effects continue to persist. Due to the adverse health effects of fiberglass, manufacturers are looking out for cheaper and safe alternatives. Based on these factors, growth of the global fiberglass (glass fiber) market is likely to face headwinds during the forecast period

Major players identified in the fiberglass (glass fiber) market are focusing on increasing their production capacities and acquisition to enhance their operational efficiency, and product portfolio. Also, strategic collaboration and joint venture witnessed among leading market players are likely to improve sales and distribution network. Due to these factors, growth of the global market is expected to gain speedy momentum during the forecast period.
