Transparency Market Research
?Narrow and long bundle of fibers is known as roving. Fiberglass roving consist of numerous microscopic glass filaments. These are often commercially sold as woven roving. Fiberglass roving are available in various weights, weaves, finishes, and widths. These are lightweight materials with exceptional strength compared to other composites. They also possess the ability to add bulkiness and thickness to the product.
Fiberglass Roving Market: Overview
Increase in installation of wind energy units is the major factor driving the fiberglass roving market. Rise in acceptance of GFRP materials composed of fiberglass roving in the automotive industry is also augments the fiberglass roving market. Furthermore, growth in usage of fiberglass roving in automotive and construction industries owing to their lightweight and exceptional strength is boosting the demand for fiberglass roving. However, concerns related to recycling of fiberglass roving materials is hampering the fiberglass roving market. Slow rate of development of low-cost technologies for producing fiberglass roving is also adversely affecting the market. Nevertheless, rise in demand for fiberglass roving in GFRP pipes applications is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the market.
Based on glass fiber type, the fiberglass roving market can be segmented into E-glass fiber, ECR-glass fiber, H-glass fiber, AR-glass, and S-glass fiber. The E-glass fiber segment is dominating the market owing to its properties such as cost effectiveness, lightness of weight, electrical insulation, corrosion resistance, and moderate strength. Based on product type, the fiberglass roving market can be divided into single-end roving, multi-end roving, and chopped roving. In terms of revenue, single-end roving is the major segment of the fiberglass roving market owing to its increased usage in pultrusion and filament winding applications.
Fiberglass Roving Market: Trends & Developments
Leading manufacturers and research institutions are making significant investments to come up with a low-cost fiberglass roving technology in order to lower the capital investment cost. Research institutions are also making investments in order to enhance the recycling properties of fiberglass roving.
Based on application, the fiberglass roving market can be segregated into wind energy, electrical & electronics, transportation, pipes & tanks, construction & infrastructure, marine, and aerospace & defense. In terms of revenue, transportation was estimated to be the major segment of the market during the forecast period.
