Global Glass Reinforced Polyester Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) is a composite material made of polyester resin and fiberglass. It is used in a variety of applications, including boatbuilding, automotive parts, and wind turbines. GRP is strong and durable, yet lightweight, making it an ideal material for many applications.

Unsaturated Polyester:

Unsaturated polyester or UPE is a polymer, which contains carbon and hydrogen. It can be segmented into two types on the basis of its physical properties and chemical composition. One type of unsaturated polyester resin is produced by heating PET resins to their softening temperature (Tm).

Epoxy Resin:

Epoxy resin is a thermosetting polymer, which contains an epoxide group. It is manufactured by the catalytic oxidation of ethylene oxide in the presence of oxygen and under high pressure. Epoxy resins are used to produce glass-reinforced polyester composites for applications including automotive parts, sports equipment, construction materials and electronics owing to their excellent mechanical strength resistance properties.

Application Insights:

The demand for glass reinforced polyester in the film application segment accounted for 35.9% of the global market share in terms of volume in 2017. The product is widely used to produce bottles and containers that are lightweight, strong, and resistant to impact and heat. These products also exhibit excellent chemical resistance which makes them suitable for food packaging applications as well as pharmaceutical industries.

The coating application segment is projected to witness a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing use of G-PROP on aluminum extrusions & components used in building & construction industry such as windows, doorframes, skylights & roofing systems among others globally due its high strength-to-weight ratio along with good corrosion resistance properties offered by glass composites over conventional metals.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue with a share of over 35.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for automobiles and aerospace industry coupled with growing popularity of FRP as an alternative material for steel in various applications such as building & construction, bridges, marine structures, and others.

The U.S., being one of the major automotive manufacturing hubs across the globe has witnessed increased production activities from various automobile manufacturers including Ford Motors Company; General Motors Company; and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., which is anticipated to propel product demand across different application areas within automotive sector including body components (frames), engine parts (heads), interior panels/trim components, etc.

Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Growing demand from the automotive industry for lightweight and durable components
  • Increasing use of GRP in construction and infrastructure projects due to its corrosion-resistant properties
  • Rising demand for GRP products in the marine sector due to their high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Growing popularity of GRP as a replacement for traditional materials in a variety of applications
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of new and improved GRP products
