The instability of raw material pricing along with the improper disposal techniques for recycling glass wool is anticipated to hinder the market growth. Also, the manufacturing process of fiberglass is complex as well as capital-intensive, which also hampers the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many end-user industries, such as automotive, aerospace, and construction to stop their production, which has decreased the demand for fiberglass, hence negatively affecting the market growth.
Increase in use of fiberglass composite in the construction and automotive industry
Fiberglass is extensively used in the automotive industry owing to its high strength-to-weight ratio. Vehicles manufactured using high-strength and low-weight materials provide higher mileage and also enhance fuel efficiency. The application of fiberglass for improving fuel efficiency also helps automotive manufacturers for meeting the strict regulations imposed on the industry for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. In the construction industry, fiberglass is used as a wall covering for decoration, finishing of walls, fire protection, and renovation of ceilings & walls. These factors boost market growth.
