Glass Fiber Reinforcements - A Global Market Overview

DUBLIN, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the " Glass Fiber Reinforcements - A Global Market Overview" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

After a volatile 2008 and 2009 period, the glass fiber industry regained its momentum in 2010 with economic recovery in almost all major global regions, and demand for glass fibers in virtually all end user applications grown significantly. This turnaround indicates that growth in the global glass fiber industry in the future would be healthy, which creates valuable opportunities for glass fiber suppliers. Europe, though, continued in a depression mode, with demand for glass fibers in several applications refusing to pep up. Glass fiber reinforcements demand for most end user applications between 2006 and 2011 has exhibited a declining trend in North America and Europe, only to be sustained by the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe.

Asia-Pacific region is led by China with a tremendous growth in the glass fiber industry over the past several years. There will be a strong demand in other emerging countries such as Russia, India, Brazil and East European countries as these regions are likely to invest in construction and infrastructure development. When it comes to glass fiber reinforcements' growth in application areas, the market for glass fiber in Long Glass Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics (LFTs) is forecast to grow significantly in the coming years as LFTs have become the preferred material for automotive engineers for fabricating high-impact and structural parts. A second and most notable application area is wind energy. Wind energy, though constituting a low volume market, is expected to emerge as the fastest growing end use application for glass fibers with a CAGR of 14.4%, fuelled by the global wind energy market.

The report analyses the market in terms of volume consumptions in metric tons as well as value consumption in US$ dollars.

The projected CAGRs for the period 2012-2016 are 7% and 9.2% respectively for volume and value.
