Glass Mat Market by Mat Type (Chopped Strand, Continuous Filament), Binder Type (Emulsion, Powder), End-Use Industry (Construction & Infrastructure, Automotive & Transportation, Industrial & Chemical, Marine), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Glass mat market projected to register a CAGR of 4.83% during forecast period”
The glass mat market is projected to reach USD 1,238.5 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.83% between 2017 and 2022. The major driver stimulating the glass mat market is the high demand from the construction & infrastructure industry, as glass mat composites provide better properties such as superior aesthetics quality and durability along with low maintenance cost. However, automation in various end-use industries is leading to replacement of glass mat with glass fabrics and roving.
“Industrial & chemical is the fastest-growing application segment in terms of value”
Glass mats are widely used in manufacturing oil & gas composite components. Glass mat is the leading type of reinforcement used in various oil & gas applications, such as piping systems, risers, gratings, tanks, casing, tubing, cable trays, ladders, and walkways. It is also used extensively for various tanks applications, such as chemicals, oil & gas, water and wastewater treatment plants, and pulp & paper. There is a significant rise in the use of glass mat composites in pressure vessels and cylinders due to its lightweight properties. All these factors are driving the glass mat market in the industrial & chemical application segment.
“Asia Pacific is fastest-growing glass mat market”
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for glass mat in the next five years. The market in this region is driven by the increasing consumption of glass mat composites in various industries such as construction & infrastructure, industrial & chemical, and automotive. China leads the market in Asia Pacific. The industrial & chemical industry dominates the demand for glass mats in the country.
