The glass mat market is estimated to grow from USD 931.5 Million in 2016 to USD 1,238.5 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.83% between 2017 and 2022. The base year considered for the study is 2016 and the market size is projected between 2017 and 2022. The increase in use of glass mat in construction & infrastructural and automotive applications is driving the market.

Objectives of the Study:

The report analyzes the global glass mat market, in terms of volume (kiloton) and value (USD million). The report also estimates the size and growth potential of the glass mat market across different segments, such as mat type, binder type, end-use industry, and region. It forecasts the market size for five regions, namely, Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The study also covers market opportunities and competitive landscape for stakeholders and market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the glass mat market begins with gathering data on key company revenues and raw material costs through secondary sources such as Factiva, Hoovers, Manta, and others. The product offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up approach has been used to arrive at the overall size of the glass mat market from the revenue of key players. After arriving at the total market size, the overall market has been split into several segments and subsegments, which have then been verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures have been used to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is shown in the figure below:

The glass mat market is projected to grow from USD 931.5 Million in 2016 to USD 1,238.5 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.83% during the forecast period. The market is growing due to the high demand from construction & infrastructure industry and other emerging application industries such as industrial & chemical and automotive; as glass mat can reduce weight and give better aesthetic than metal parts. The market witnessed a strong growth in the past few years considering the use of composites in the US, Germany, and developing countries such as China, Brazil, and Japan.

The glass mat market is segmented based on mat type into compression chopped strand mat and continuous filament mat. Chopped strand mat is expected to the fastest-growing mat type segment. It was also the largest segment for glass mat in 2016, in terms of value, as it is the most preferred mat type to manufacture composites. Chopped strand mat is widely applicable in recreational, marine, transportation, industrial, and construction applications, among others.

The glass mat market is segmented by end-use industry into construction & infrastructure, industrial & chemical, marine, sports & leisure, and others. The construction & infrastructure segment accounts for the highest market share, owing to innovations in the integration of lightweight GFRP composites, which provide strong, corrosion resistance, and better aesthetic properties. This is expected to further increase the demand for glass mat from construction & infrastructure component manufacturers.

Glass mat market based on binder type is segmented into powder bonded glass mat and emulsion bonded glass mat. The emulsion based glass mat segment dominated the glass mat market as it gives better handling properties, better surface bonding efficiency, and ease of processing as compared to powder bonded glass mat. Emulsion bonded mats offer benefits such as easy air removal, rapid resin impregnation, good surface bonding, high strand integrity, better aesthetics to composite parts, and low resin consumption, among others.

Currently, Asia Pacific is the largest consumer of glass mat. India and China are also the major markets due to the growing construction & infrastructure and industrial & chemical industries in both countries.
