In this market, E/ECR glass, S glass, C glass and other glass type are the major glass type used with glass fiber reinforced plastic to manufacture parts. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the E/ECR segment will remain the largest segment by value and volume due to usage in a wide range of applications designed to face corrosive environments and better performance over traditional glass fiber. Lucintel predicts that S glass is expected to witness the highest growth during forecast period due to its high tensile strength, tensile modulus, and high chemical & heat resistance compared to E/ECR glass fiber.

Within the glass fiber reinforced plastic market, injection molding, hand layup, compression molding, spray up, filament winding, resin infusion, and prepreg layup are some of the major processes utilized to manufacture composite parts. Injection molding is expected to be the largest process in terms of value and volume in composite manufacturing because of low cycle time, low manufacturing cost, and ability to make complex shapes.

Within glass fiber reinforced plastic market, transportation will remain the largest market by value and volume and it is also expected to witness in the highest growth over the forecast period. Government regulations, such as CAFE Standards in the US and 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.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest region by value and volume and it  is also expected to experience the highest growth over the forecast period because of growth in construction, transportation, and the electrical and electronics segments. rowing economy, growth in population, and urbanization are the major forces that drive the construction segment, especially in China and India.

Emerging trend, which has a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, includes penetration of low dielectric glass fiber in high performance PCB.  Owens Corning, Jushi, Nippon Electric Glass Co.Ltd., Taishan Fiberglass Inc., Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation (CPIC), Johns Manville, INEOS, BASF, Dupont, Polynt, Huntsman, and Hexion are among the major raw materials suppliers for glass fiber reinforced plastic market.
