In this market, E (ECR) glass, S glass, C glass, and D glass are the type of glass fiber utilized to manufacture composite parts for different end use industries. On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that E (ECR) glass is expected to be the largest product type of glass fiber by value and volume over the forecast period.

Within the European glass fiber market, transportation is expected to remain the largest and witness the highest growth market by value and volume consumption. Government regulations, such as carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for glass fiber in the transportation industry.

By manufacturing process, injection molding is the major process utilized to manufacture glass composite parts because of high-output production rate, low labor cost, and design flexibility.

By product form, multi-end roving is the major product form of glass fiber used to manufacture composite industry parts. Multi-end roving fiber is commonly used in transportation, construction, and marine end use applications.

In terms of supply, the European glass fiber capacity was ~1.9 billion pound in 2017.Lucintel predicts that the glass fiber plant capacity utilization will go down in 2018 as glass fiber suppliers increase production capacity.  For example, in 2018, Owens Corning plans to build additional capacity in France, and Sisecam Group is installing a new plant in Turkey.   

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include cost optimization and performance enhancement of glass fibers.  Owens Corning, Johns Manville, 3B glass fiber, Nippon Electric Glass and Lanxess are among the major manufacturers of the European glass fiber market.

The European glass fiber producers experiencing an increase in their market share after anti-dumping duty imposed on Chinese glass fiber manufacturers in 2014 by European commission.  After review in 2017, European commission has converted the provisional anti-dumping measures into definitive duties- ranging from 4.9 % to 30%, depending on the producer.  European commission has also found that after
