Composites have already proven their worth as the materials having excellent performance
benefits. The current challenges lying ahead are to make them cost-effective and speed up the
manufacturing process. The efforts to meet these challenges have resulted in the development of
advanced manufacturing techniques and innovative materials. The future market is expected to
be highly competitive, and companies with innovation capability can thrive and gain market share.
The market for one of the composite materials, such as glass fiber, which is used as a reinforcing
material for a variety of applications, such as boat, construction, wind, pipe and tank, and
consumer goods, was approximately $8.1 billion in 2013. Manufacturers of glass fibers are
expected to focus on continuously developing high-performance glass fibers to meet higher
mechanical and chemical requirements of different applications. Recently, PPG, 3B, Jushi Group,
Owens Corning, and others have launched products to meet the requirements of the industry.
