Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Glass Fiber & Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) Composites Market - Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
Glass fibers are produced when glass is heated until it is molten, and is forced through superfine holes, creating thin glass filaments/fibers about 1/10th the size of a human hair.
Glass fibers are available in different diameters according to their requirement. They have been incorporated in various applications for several decades because of their relatively low cost in comparison with traditional materials such as steel and aluminum and are easily available.
Additionally, usage of glass fibers in place of metals offers certain structural advantages such as styling flexibility. GFRP Composites are lighter and flexible; therefore producing complex models with higher resistance and lower weight is easier.
The factor responsible for the growing demand of glass fiber industry is the recovery of the global economy and improving prospects in various end-use markets.
Since glass fiber composites are reliable, versatile, light weight, and cost-effective, the demand of GFRP Composites is higher. The enormous potential in the Asian countries, particularly China and India, is likely to foster further growth of the glass fiber market.
