Glass Fiber Demand

01 August 2003

Glass fiber demand in the US will reach 6.9 billion pounds in 2007, according to a new report from Freedonia. Textile glass fibers will lead gains based on opportunities in reinforced plastics. Steady advances in glass fibers will result from continued material and technology improvements, enhancing the performance of fiber reinforced products and making them more competitive with metal and wood.

This study analyzes the US glass fiber industry, presenting historical data (1992, 1997 and 2002) and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by type (e.g., glass wool, textile glass); and by market (e.g., residential and nonresidential construction, industrial and equipment, appliances, reinforced plastics, asphalt products, mechanical rubber, paper, filters).

The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 43 industry competitors including Owens Corning, Saint Gobain, Johns Manville, PPG Industries, Evanite Fiber, Hollinee, and Superior Glass Fibers.
