Report Details

The glass fibre composites market will experience growth in the near future across many sectors and industry applications. The glass fibre composites industry is a highly fragmented competitive sector resulting in many companies competing for market share. The glass fibre market is the largest of the three main composites markets and visiongain expects it to reach a value of $30.9bn in 2014.
Although glass fibre is ultimately not as strong and light as carbon fibre or as resilient as aramid fibre, glass fibre remains the most cost effective type of composite in low to mid-value applications where cost is a significant factor such as in marine, windpower and construction usage. Until competing composites such as carbon fibre and aramid fibre can be produced at much lower cost, glass fibre will remain the dominant composite material - in market value and volume terms.
The biggest players in the glass fibre composites market include Owens Corning, Asahi Fibreglass Company, and PPG. However these companies do not have a significantly bigger stake than other leading composite companies.
