About Fiberglass Fiberglass is a composite material, which is widely used in the aerospace industry for its lightweight and eco-friendly nature. It is made of glass fiber reinforced plastics. Fiberglass is a fiber reinforced polymer, which is made of plastics and reinforced with glass fibers in a continuous stranded fashion. The plastic may be a thermoset plastic (mostly epoxy, polyester, or vinyl ester) or a thermoplastic. Glass fibers are made from various categories of glass, depending on the end-use. Glass fibers have silica or silicate along with some amount of oxides of calcium, magnesium, and boron. Fiberglass is lightweight and strong. It is not as strong as a carbon fiber but stronger than many metals. Its raw materials are comparatively cheaper than those of carbon fiber composites.

The Asia-Pacific region was the world’s largest market for automotive composite in 2013. China is the key consumer of automotive composite in Asia-Pacific. Need for lightweight and fuel efficient vehicles shifted manufacturers focus towards automotive composite. Various product launches, partnerships, agreements, and expansions have in turn made the region a potential growth market for automotive composite. Carbon fiber is a material made up of carbon atoms that are aligned parallel to the main axis of the fiber. The fibers are very thin in diameter, about 1/10th the size of a human hair. The crystal alignment makes the fiber very strong for its size. Normally, carbon fibers are molded with other materials such as plastic resin and graphite to form carbon fiber composite. Carbon fiber composite is the fastest-growing automotive composite driven by its high demand for chassis & powertrain components application. The chassis & powertrain market for automotive composite has a wide scope for its expansion, which in turn would help in increasing the consumption for automotive composite. Exterior components are the biggest application of automotive composite and are projected to be worth $ 3,555.51 million by 2019. Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Owens Corning (U.S.), Johns Manville (U.S.), SGL Group (Germany), Cytec Industries Inc. (U.S.), Koninklijke Ten Cate nv (The Netherlands), Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd.
