Key Drivers of the Global Glass Wool Market

The major factors driving the demand for glass wool (or fiberglass) include recovery of the construction activity, stringent building standards, improved energy quality requirements in industrialized regions, rise in building activity worldwide, and improvement in production activities in developing countries. Owing to the need for impact resistant and lightweight materials, the marine and automotive industries are among the key users of glass wool. Continuous investments in the infrastructure sector is expected to significantly boost the consumption of glass wool, thereby supplementing the growth of the market.  Glass wool is designed and merchandised with natural raw materials, including sand and recycled glass, and hence prevent the growth of vermin and fungi. Thus, glass wool finds its application across a varied range of industrial; commercial; and mechanical, chemical, and environmental (MCE) sectors, which is projected to drive the growth of the global market during the forecast period.

Market Scenario: Opportunities and Challenges

The acceptance of the glass wool processing technology is expected to boost among consumers, owing to its thermal effectiveness, resilience, and longevity, thereby encouraging green application.  With rapid development in technology, several industries are adopting glass wool products as these are lightweight and easy to transport. Increase in focus on thermal insulation in solar power plants is expected to fuel the demand for glass fiber. In addition, it is expected that increase in number of LNG conversion plants and rise in deployment of HVAC systems are expected to fuel the growth of the glass wool market during forecast period. Increase in renovation & refurbishing of historic buildings along with new residential projects significantly contributes toward the growth of the overall market. However, lack of know-how toward the benefits offered by glass wool products negatively impacts the development of the global market. In addition, high cost of glass wool hinders the growth of the market.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global glass wool market is expected to witness a slowdown during the next couple of years.  This is attributed to the shutdown of factories across all cities and provinces, globally, leading to predictions of a sharp slowdown. Recent decline in construction activities is one of the key factors that is likely to negatively impact the growth the glass wool market. Thus, companies are dealing with missing sales and disrupted supply chains, as production activities are shutdown.
