Glass fiber is made from extremely fine fibers of glass. It is a lightweight, extremely strong, and robust material. Although strength properties are somewhat lower than carbon fiber and it is less stiff, the material is typically far less brittle, and the raw materials are much less expensive. Glass fibers have application in transportation, construction, electronics, wind energy, industrial, and others. The market size of carbon fiber in terms of volume is projected to register a CAGR of around 14.2% between 2015 and 2020 to reach 130 ton approximately by 2020. Carbon fiber is an inorganic fiber consisting of very thin filament of carbon atoms. They have applications in the industrial, wind energy, automotive, sporting goods, aerospace & defense, and other industries.

The specialty synthetic fibers include aramids, UHMW polyethylene, POA, and other fibers are projected to register a high CAGR between 2015 and 2020. Aramids are made from polymer aromatic polyamide and generally are of two types, namely, para aramid and meta aramid. Globally, the aramid market is largely dominated by para aramids since it is used in wide range of applications due to its physical properties. The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is also known as high strength polyethylene and possesses great strength to weight ratio. After North America, Asia-Pacific is projected to drive the UHMW polyethylene market due to escalating defense budgets in emerging economies and demand for ballistic materials which will drive demand for UHMW polyethylene between 2015 and 2020. However, North America is the world leader in the production and consumption of UHMW polyethylene due to its growing body armor and vehicle armor market.

The global glass fiber market and specialty synthetic fibers market is projected to register a market size of about $14,240.53 Million by 2020, signifying CAGR of around 6.46% between 2015 and 2020.

The specialty synthetic fibers market which includes aramids, UHMW polyethylene, POA, and other synthetic fibers have witnessed a significant growth in the recent years, and this growth is projected to register a higher CAGR in the coming years. UHMW polyethylene is also known as a high strength polyethylene which possesses greater strength with higher strength to weight ratio, which is fifteen times stronger than steel and 40% stronger than aramids. The glass fiber and specialty synthetic fibers have wide application in friction materials, safety applications, optical fibers, ballistic protection, commercial marine, medical, automotive, aerospace & defense, and other applications.

Currently, North America followed by Europe is the biggest market for glass fibers and specialty synthetic fibers, accounting for more than half of the total market size in terms of value in 2014. Among all the countries, the U.S. dominates the specialty synthetic fibers market, which accounted for the maximum market share in 2014 closely followed by Canada. The market for glass fibers and specialty synthetic fibers is comparatively smaller in Asia-Pacific than the other two developed regions but is projected to register a high CAGR between 2015 and 2020. The market for glass fibers and specialty synthetic fibers is projected to register fast growth in China followed by Japan, India, and Taiwan.
