Fiberglass Yarn Market: Introduction
Fiberglass Yarn is fiber-reinforced plastic where the reinforcement material is glass. The polymer matrix is usually thermoset/thermoplastic. The primary raw materials used in the production of fiberglass yarn are silica or silicate glass, oxides of boron, magnesium, and calcium. E-glass fiberglass type is most commonly used and occupies around 90% of the overall fiberglass yarn materials. Fiberglass yarns find extensive use in reinforced composites of building & construction and wind energy applications. They have also penetrated in diverse sectors, including sport & recreation, medical, and consumer goods. The global fiberglass yarn market is expected to witness a healthy CAGR in the forthcoming years owing to the rise in the construction industry and increased focus on infrastructure and road paving in emerging and developed economies.
Fiberglass Yarn Market: Market Dynamics
The key driving factor for the growth of fiberglass yarn market is its extensive use as an insulator in the building & construction industry. The market for fiberglass yarn is forecast to witness growth on the back of increased consumer spending on construction in both developed and developing economies. Stringent government regulation on emission has propelled the use of sustainable, lightweight and newer materials for weight management. Fiberglass yarn is lightweight and has strong impact resistance which makes it a material of choice for a number of automotive applications. However, the presence of potential substitutes such as aluminum and carbon fiber are likely to hamper the market growth of fiberglass yarn market. However, fiberglass yarn being more cost competitive as compared to carbon fiber, the market for fiberglass yarn in the automotive applications will be the one to watch out in the long-term forecast. Fiberglass yarn is also used in the manufacturing wind turbine blades and other structural components. Furthermore the promotion of renewable energy from a number of governments pushes the demand for wind turbine installations across the world indirectly driving sales for fiberglass yarns. In addition to this, niche applications of fiberglass yarn such as consumer goods, sport & recreation, and medical are expected to drive the growth of Fiberglass Yarn market in the coming years.
