DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Glass & Specialty Synthetic Fiber Market by Fiber Type (Glass, Carbon, Aramid, UHMWPE, PPS), Application (Composite, Non-Composite), End-Use Industry, and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, Latin America) - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global glass & speciality synthetic fiber market size is projected to grow from USD 65.9 billion in 2019 to USD 91.4 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.8% between 2019 and 2024.
The glass & speciality synthetic fiber market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period
Glass & speciality synthetic fibers offer exceptional properties, such as stiffness, strength, tenacity, density, and thermal & electrical conductivity, fatigue, and corrosion resistance. Owing to these outstanding properties offered by glass & speciality synthetic fibers, the demand for glass & speciality synthetic fiber is increasing in various end-use industries.
Carbon fiber is the fastest-growing fiber type in terms of value
Carbon fibers are considered to the significant replacement material for steel, especially in the automotive & transportation and aerospace & defense industries. Most of the auto components are made from steel. Replacing these metals with carbon fibers would help to reduce the weight of most automobiles by at least 60%. This drop in the weight would reduce fuel consumption by 30% and also contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases and other emissions by around 20%. These fibers also have high demand from wind energy and sporting goods industries.
Composite is the fastest-growing resin type of composites, in terms of value
The use of fibers in composite applications offer properties such as incombustibility, corrosion resistance, high strength, thermal stability, and lightweight. In non-composite applications, the fibers are used as reinforcements without any matrices. Thus, there is a huge demand for glass, carbon, aramid, and UHMWPE fibers based composites in various end-use industries.
Wind energy is the fastest-growing end-use industry of composites, in terms of value
The wind energy is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The use of glass and carbon fibers in wind turbines provides high tensile strength, helping manufacturers to achieve larger blades and higher energy output. Due to its corrosion resistance properties, composites have helped the wind industry to grow by allowing wind turbines to work in the harshest environments.
APAC is the fastest-growing composites market.
APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR in terms of value in the global glass & speciality synthetic fiber market during the forecast period. APAC dominated the glass & speciality synthetic fiber industry in 2018. The composites manufacturing companies have ample opportunities in the APAC market in comparison to the European and North American counterparts owing to low-cost labor and raw materials. The growth of the glass & speciality synthetic fiber market in this region is supported by the advancement of composite technology solutions and penetration in various end-use industries.
