According to this analysis, the Global Fiber Glass Market was valued at ~US$ 12 billion in 2017. It is estimated to be ~US$ 15 billion in 2022 and is forecasted to reach a market size of ~US$ 20 billion, growing at a CAGR of ~5% owing to the rising demand from the manufacturing industry.

The expansion of the construction sector is the main driver for the growth of the fiberglass market. The market is growing due to a notable rise in attention paid to infrastructure and road quality. In the construction industry, fiberglass is used in mesh fabrics that prevent cracks in interior walls, floor covering, wall covering, in self-adhesive drywall tapes, waterproofing frit, and others.

There has been a significant rise in modern architecture in recent years, leading to the development of modern materials such as glass fiber.

The major challenge faced by the fiberglass market is the negative environmental effects during the production of the material. Fiberglass processing and production require a high volume of energy and resources which generally have an adverse impact on the environment.

Fiberglass production generates not just air pollution but also solid and liquid waste. Strict restrictions and standards established by the governments of different countries may impede the growth of the fibreglass industry, influencing the overall market.

The market was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first half of 2020, as most of the end-use industries that use fiberglass were shut down and sales of fiberglass saw a major change of trend during this period.

Production halts and supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic led to the suspension of several other activities along the value chain of industries, such as automotive, construction, aerospace, and others.

However, the market is expected to exhibit significant growth in the forecast period due to surging demand for fiberglass material products in the textile industry.
