Glass Mat Market Size Expected to Reach USD 2.28 Billion by 2033

The global glass mat market size is calculated at USD 1.41 billion in 2024 and is expected to reach around USD 2.28 billion by 2033, growing at a CAGR of 5.47% from 2024 to 2033.

Ottawa, May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global glass mat market size was estimated at USD 1.34 billion in 2023 and is projected to surpass around USD 2.16 billion by 2032, According to Precedence Research. The glass mat market is driven by increasing demand for glass mats in the automotive industry, a wide range of applications in the construction industry, and R&D projects.

The glass mat market refers to the industry involved in the production and sale of glass mats, which are non-woven materials made from glass fibers. A glass mat is a form of nonwoven material composed of long or short glass fibers bound together using a binding agent. This innovation enables the development of new composites that are more suited to electrical insulation applications, as well as technical and economic requirements. Glass mat composites are less expensive due to a more efficient assembly process and consistent fiber length and verticality. This enhances the stability of machined parts and shear testing on glass mat laminates. The 3D pressing of the glass mat lowers the stacking effect of glass cloths, resulting in a more cohesive laminate layer. This structure also improves machinability, allowing for faster milling of laminates and extending the life of diamond and carbide tools.

Type Insights

The chopped-strand glass mats segment dominated the glass mat market in 2023. Chopped strand mat is a popular material for reinforcement in fiberglass manufacture. It is made up of short glass fibers that are randomly oriented and kept together using a binder. It offers an even finish and good wet-out, making it perfect for boat construction, automotive components, and construction. A chopped strand mat is easy to handle, has high strength and stiffness, making the product strong and resistant to breaking and cracking, and is less expensive than other reinforcement materials such as woven roving or carbon fiber.

The continuous filament mats segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace over the forecast period. Continuous filament mats are easy to slice into different widths and provide wet-through permeability for resin impregnation, leading to fast line speeds. They also improve wet-out, allowing for precise coating of glass filaments and strands. Furthermore, they conform to complex shapes without generating creases or resin breaking.

Binder Type Insights

The powder-bonded segment dominated the glass mat market in 2023. The composite products have a homogeneous density and strong mat integrity, are easy to cut, have few loose fibers, and are extremely flexible for molding. They also have a fast wet-out speed in resins and a quick air lease, which improves molding productivity and mechanical qualities of the finished product.

The emulsion segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. This material has superior conformability, impregnation, and mechanical qualities. Its quick soaking and rapid gas release boost holding productivity while decreasing resin demand and lowering expenses. Its ease of handling and conformity to complex molds enable high-quality part manufacture. Its superior bonding and minimal resin demand result in outstanding laminate qualities.

Application Insights

The construction & infrastructure segment dominated the glass mat market in 2023 and is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Global construction is booming due to fast urbanization, a growing population, and fresh infrastructure development. Glass mats are essential in the building of roofs, walls, floors, and insulation. They are highly valued for their durability, strength, fire resistance, and moisture resistance. As more people learn about the advantages they offer, the demand for glass mats in construction grows.

Glass Mat Market Dynamics

Driver: Rise in application of glass mat in the construction industry

Glass mat sheathing board, a high-performance external sheathing material, is becoming increasingly popular in construction projects due to its distinct features and construction advantages. The glass mat, which is made by inserting a fiberglass mat between two layers of gypsum, is stronger and more resistant to moisture than ordinary gypsum boards. These boards provide various advantages over standard sheathing solutions, including higher thermal performance, better fire resistance, increased moisture resistance, lower weight, greater strength, and faster installation.

Durability, moisture resistance, dimensional stability, mold resistance, and fire resistance are some of the primary characteristics of glass mat sheathing boards. They are appropriate for numerous uses, including sheathing material for exterior walls and roofs, backing boards for cladding systems, tile backing boards for wet areas, and shaft wall assemblies for fire-rated stairwells. All these factors led to the growth of the glass mat market.

Restraint: Deconsolidation while processing

Composite processing entails impregnating a dry fiber preform with a matrix and pressing it under pressure to enter the pores between the fibers. If the fiber preform is compressible, it will undergo compressive strain. These tensions remain in the final portion after the composite has been cured or cooled.

The impregnated part may require post-processing operations, such as post-cure or warming, to release locked-in stresses, also known as lofting or deconsolidation. This may boost part dimensions and content of voids while decreasing fiber volume fraction. To preserve matrix mechanical properties, thermoset-based composites should be post-cured. Lofting is frequently required in thermoplastic samples to melt the matrix. Deconsolidation can also impair surface quality during the painting phase, such as in the automotive industry, where quick heating may result in surface irregularities.

Opportunity: Application in the automotive industry

Absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries are an excellent choice for high-end, fuel-efficient vehicles with significant power demands, as well as those looking for dependability and longevity. They are suitable for vehicles that start and stop, huge music systems, heated seats, and other electronic accessories. AGM batteries are designed to withstand high electrical loads, recharge quickly, and have a longer cycle life. They are also appropriate for start-stop vehicles that have regenerative braking or passive boost.

The AGM battery is made up of an absorbent glass mat to divide the positive and negative plates, which are tightly compressed into each cell, and a hard container to keep the batteries compacted throughout their life. AGM batteries have benefits such as up to two times the life of normal flooded batteries, managing high electrical loads, rapid recharges, vibration opposition, non-spillable and maintenance-free, and additional flexibility.
