Fiberglass Market Segments, Opportunity, Growth and Forecast By End-use Industry 2017 - 2027

Press release from: Future Market Insights

Market Definition and Introduction

Fiberglass is a type of a fiber-reinforced plastic which uses glass fiber for reinforcement purpose. These glass fibers could either be arranged arbitrarily, or compressed into a sheet known, or woven into a fabric. The plastic could be of a thermosetting type, such as an epoxy resin, polyester resin, or a vinyl ester, or it could be of the thermoplastic type. Fiberglass is manufactured through a process called pultrusion. Fiberglass has been found to be inexpensive than carbon fiber, and also demonstrates more flexibility than the latter. It also displays other multiple advantages vis-à-vis other reinforcing materials such as higher strength than most of the metals per unit weight. Fiberglass could also be molded into different shapes of varying complexities. It finds important applications in a diverse range of industrial applications such as aerospace, marine, automotive, construction, both interior & exterior.

Fiberglass finds vital applications in the telecom industry for the purpose of shrouding antennas, due to its desirable properties such as radio frequency (RF) permeability & low signal attenuation. Fiberglass is also used in the manufacture of sheet-form electrical insulating materials & structural components, which find applications in products used in the power industry. Fiberglass has also been found to be lightweight & durable. Hence, it also finds applications in the manufacture of protective equipment such as helmets and other sports accessories for protection, for instance, fiberglass protective gear, such as goaltenders’ and catchers’ masks.
