Opportunities: Increasing number of wind energy capacity installations is an opportunity for fiberglass market to grow

Fiberglass composites get widely used in the wind energy industry as they offers good strength-to-weight ratio. Many countries, such as China, Germany, and Spain, are making efforts to restructure their energy systems in favor of renewable sources. According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), by 2035, the renewables industry is expected to generate more than 25% of the world's electricity, out of which a quarter is expected to be derived from wind, which also helps in reducing the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Wind energy is a viable option for electricity generation, as it is a cost-effective option while adding new generation capacity to the grid.

E-glass type comprises a major share of the fiberglass market in terms of value.

E-glass, also known as an electrical grade glass, has electrical insulation property. E-glass was initially developed for electrical wiring applications. However, technological advancements in the field of E-glass have widened its applicability across various sectors, such as wind energy, marine, and electrical & electronics. E-glass is cost-efficient, corrosion-resistant, and lightweight. Owing to its wide-ranging applications, it is considered to be the most widely used glass fiber around the world during the forecast period.
