The global glass mat material market size is estimated to be USD 1.2 billion in 2022 and is forecasted to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2027, witnessing a CAGR of 6.8% between 2022 and 2027. Glass mat is made of non-woven materials, which can be randomly sized, chopped, or continuous glass fibers that are distributed uniformly and are bonded together with a binder material. Glass mat material majorly consist of glass fibers and binders. Glass fiber is a material consisting of numerous extremely fine fibers of glass. These glass fibers can be E-glass, S-glass, and ECR-glass fiber, depending on their applications. Binders are the substances or materials that draw or hold other materials together to form cohesive whole parts.
Glass mats are being used in various end use industries such as: construction & infrastructure, industrial, automotive & transportation, marine, sports & leisure, and many other industries. The increasing demand of glass mats from construction & infrastructure drives the demand for glass mat materials market. However, in 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the market faced downfall in the demand of glass mat materials. Due to the lockdown scenario in Europe and North America, the demand for glass mat materials from construction & infrastructure, automotive & transportation, industrial, marine and other end-use industries was declined sharply in 2020.

The demand for products such as storage tanks, walling for cooling towers, process piping, rails, and gratings has increased in the industrial sector. Low weight, high strength, corrosion resistance, and durability have been the foremost drivers for the use of glass mat material in industrial applications. In addition, glass mats provide flexibility for complex structures in various applications.
Construction & infrastructure is another promising end-use industry of glass mat material. Low flammability, dimensional stability, design flexibility, and impact resistance properties of glass mats are important in this industry. Pediments, domes, window profiles, utility poles, transmission poles, and guardrails are a few major applications in the construction & infrastructure industry. The global construction & infrastructure industry is expected to witness a CAGR of ~6.0% during the next two years, with spending on infrastructure expected to largely come from emerging economies such as China, India, Nigeria, and Indonesia
Over the past years, glass mat materials manufacturers have strengthened their position in the global glass mat material market by adopting various growth strategies including expansions, partnerships, joint ventures, agreements, contracts, new product/technology launches, , and mergers & acquisitions. However, still there is a need for an advanced technology to manufacture glass mat materials at low price.
