Glass fibers are the most commonly used reinforcement materials in fiber reinforced plastics (FRP), accounting
for over 80% of the global market in terms of volume. Apart from low cost, several other desirable properties
such as high strength, high modulus, chemical resistance, electrical resistance, impact resistance, and low
weight drive the global glass fibers market.
Glass fibers can be segmented into E-class glass fibers and performance glass fibers. E-class glass fibers
account for the largest share of the global glass fibers market. Performance glass fibers are used in
specialized applications as per their specialties. Performance glass fibers comprise C-class glass fibers, Sclass glass fibers, and D-class glass fibers, among others. Major applications of glass fibers include building &
construction, transportation, consumer goods, industrial applications, wind turbines, and others. Building &
construction and transportation are the leading segments and account for the majority share of the glass fiber
reinforced plastics market in terms of volume.

Glass Fibers Market

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the glass fibers market in 2013. The market in the region is
estimated to expand at the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Demand growth in Asia Pacific is led
by China, which accounted for the lion’s share of the market in the region. China was also the largest
manufacturer of glass fiber in the world, producing over 60% of the global glass fiber output in 2013. The glass
fibers industry in China is export oriented, and the country exports more than 40% of its produce to North
America and Europe. China-based glass fibers manufacturers enjoy government patronage, which enables
them to produce glass fibers at considerably low cost compared to counterparts in Europe. Among other
provisions, China-based manufacturers enjoy subsidized lending rates from government-owned commercial
and policy banks. Other preferences include export credit subsidies, export guarantees, and preferential
insurance. These government policies help manufacturers to increase business profitability and provide an
unfair advantage over their counterparts in North America and Europe.

Building & construction was the major application in all regions including North America, Europe, and Asia
Pacific. Transportation was the second-largest application in all regions. Wind turbine is estimated to be the
fastest growing application segment globally during the forecast period. The wind turbine application segment
in Europe is expected to record the fastest growth rate owing to several government initiatives promoting green
energy.
