Chopped strand is projected to be the fastest-growing type segment in the global fiberglass market during the forecast period.

Chopped strands are fiberglass strands used to provide reinforcements in the automotive and construction applications.

These can be mixed with resin to produce reinforcing gap fillers in construction activities.

Chopped strands used along with polyester resin produce strong, stiff, and tough laminates used in water tanks, boats, and other industrial applications. These are suitable for the hand lay-up process using thermoset resin systems in automobile, re-creation, and chemical industries.

Rising automotive production in the Asia Pacific and Europe is expected to drive the demand in the chopped strand type segment market.

Composites is projected to be the fastest-growing application segment in the global fiberglass market during the forecast period.

Composites is projected to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period. The strength-to-weight ratio of fiberglass is higher than steel and aluminum.

The reduction in weight for a given level of strength makes the use of fiberglass vital in the automotive industry. The fiberglass applications market for the automotive industry is in a nascent stage, with the key drivers being low processing time and cost.

A number of car manufacturers, along with glass fiber producers, are venturing into the mass production of glass fiber rich automotive parts. Trends such as weight reduction, increased processing speed, and lower VOC emissions are driving the fiberglass market in automotive applications.

Fiberglass enables automotive manufacturers produce structural components that substitute conventional metal components. Automotive applications include bumper beams, under hood applications, exterior panels, and interiors of cars and trains.

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for fiberglass in 2017

The Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for fiberglass in 2017. The increasing demand for fiberglass composites for the manufacture of lightweight vehicles is expected to drive the Asia Pacific fiberglass market.

Europe is estimated to be the second largest market of fiberglass in 2017. The European fiberglass market is majorly driven by the growing demand from the fast-growing transportation, marine, aerospace and defense, and wind energy applications.

The increasing demand for fiberglass composites to manufacture lightweight vehicles is expected to drive the fiberglass market.
