Burgeoning Construction Industry to Propel Growth

In the construction industry, the glass fibers are extensively used in roofs, windows, and walls. Moreover, the construction industry is increasingly using glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) contains sand, glass fiber, and hydrated cement. Higher adoption of glass fibers in the construction sectors is a key factor fuelling growth of the global glass fiber market. Furthermore, growing construction activities globally and especially in the developing countries of Asia Pacific are fuelling growth of the global glass fiber market.

Increasing preferences for lightweight material in numerous end-use application such as automotive and wind energy generation is expected to continue over the forecast period. This is another important factor fuelling growth of the glass fibers market. Additionally, some of the properties such as flexural, high tensile strength, lightweight, anti-corrosive nature along with higher durability. Owing to these factors, the glass fibers are replacing the materials such as aluminum and steel in many end-user industries in addition, thanks to these properties of the glass fiber, application of glass fiber has widened in the numerous other industries such as wind turbine and oil & gas sector which is likely to fuel growth of the global glass fiber market.
