Research and Markets has added the “Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics (GFRP) Composites Market – By Material (Glass Fiber, Resins, Fillers); Manufacturing Process (Manual, Compression, Injection, Continues Process); Industry – Forecast 2016 – 2021.” report to its research database.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Composite materials are characterized by specific stiffness and strength exceeding that of similar metal structures. With emphasis on light weight vehicles, the use of composite materials in aerospace and automotive structures has created a need to further understanding the energy absorption characteristics of composite materials. High strength and light weight remain the best combination that if forcing composite materials in the new field from last few decades.
The mechanical properties such as tensile, flexural, interlaminar shear strength, impact strength, notch sensitivity, and water absorption of jute-glass reinforced composites were studied and it was found that the mechanical properties are lower than those of plain GFRP and more than the jute fiber reinforced composites.
The wind energy, aerospace & defense, and pipe, tank & other corrosion resistant equipment are the fastest growing segments in the application market worldwide. The government funded infrastructure and construction projects in the developing countries drive the market. Also, the increasing wind energy installed capacity drives the GFRP Composites market at a fast rate. The light weight, strength, and corrosion resistant properties of glass fiber drive its growth in the aerospace & defense segment.
