Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/05/2014 -- Glass Fiber & Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) Composites Market by Raw Material, Manufacturing Process, Application (Transportation, Construction, Electrical & Electronics, & Others) & by Geography - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019
Glass fiber reinforced (GFRP) Composites is the largest segment in the composites industry, worth several billions. Glass fiber is made from extremely fine fibers of glass. It is a lightweight, extremely strong, and robust material. Although strength properties are somewhat lower than carbon fiber and it is less stiff, the material is typically far less brittle, and the raw materials are much less expensive. Its bulk strength and weight properties are also very favorable when compared to metals, and it can be easily formed using molding processes. The glass fibers are most extensively used as a raw material for composite materials. Glass fiber accounts for about 90% of the reinforcements used in composite consumption, globally. Most of the GFRP Composites are used in construction and transportation sectors. The demand for renewable energy in the form of wind turbines, demand for light-weight fuel efficient aircrafts & cars, and the demand for GFRP pipe, tank and other corrosion resistant equipment are major drivers increasing its demand in the coming years.
