The most recent report released by Research and Markets is the Global Fiber Glass Market Report: 2010 Edition. Glass fibers can be divided into two major groups: composites and insulated. Bing lightweight, durable, anti corrosive, efficient carrier and a versatile material, fibreglass is used in both traditional and high-tech industries. The major industries in which fiberglass products are used include: aerospace, construction, transportation, corrosion resistant equipment manufacturing, amongst others, with the construction industry as been a major end market. Geographically, the US is the largest market for fiberglass, both in terms of production and consumption. Among the emerging markets, China has been the largest producer, and is expected to become the largest consumer of fiberglass worldwide, surpassing the US in the coming years. The global fiberglass industry has shown increasing performance for the past few years, thanks to its versatile performance and low cost, and is expected to undergo further growth grow in the coming years. The increase in demand of fiberglass is also caused by growing demand of alternate sources of energy, especially wind energy. The 2010 report analyses the global fiberglass market along with the two main regions: Europe and China. It deals in depth with the diverse opportunities and drivers, including increasing demand from emerging countries, particularly BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries, and increasing energy demand. The report also presents the key challenges faced by the industry, with three players of the global fiberglass industry – Owens Corning, PPG Industries and China Fiberglass, profiled in the report – along with their strategies for growth. Key topics covered include an overview of fiberglass; the global fiberglass market; country analysis: Europe, China; market drivers and opportunities in emerging economies; composite pipes – a growing segment; increasing energy demand worldwide; growing demand for alternative source of energy-wind; key challenges and issues; cyclical nature of end-use markets; huge investments in research and development; impact of economic environment; competition from other insulation products; health hazards; competitive landscape; company profiles: Owens Corning, PPG Industries, China Fiberglass; market outlook, market forecast and forecast methodology.
