Some of the European glass fiber companies profiled in this report include Owens Corning, Johns Manville, 3B glass fiber, Nippon Electric Glass and Lanxess and others.
On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that E (ECR) glass is expected to be the largest product type of glass fiber by value and volume over the forecast period.
Within the European glass fiber market, transportation is expected to remain the largest and witness the highest growth market by value and volume consumption. Government regulations, such as carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for glass fiber in the transportation industry.
In terms of supply, the European glass fiber capacity was ~1.9 billion pound in 2017.Lucintel predicts that the glass fiber plant capacity utilization will go down in 2018 as glass fiber suppliers increase production capacity. For example, in 2018, Owens Corning plans to build additional capacity in France, and Şişecam Group is installing a new plant in Turkey.
