This report, from Stratview Research, studies the high performance glass fiber market over the period 2010 to 2021. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.

The High Performance Glass Fiber Market: Highlights
High performance fibers were developed for military applications during 1960’s and is known by various names, such as S glass in the USA, R glass in Europe, and T glass in Japan. It has a tensile strength of approximately 700 ksi and tensile modulus of up to 14 Msi. High performance glass fiber is 40% to 70% stronger than E glass fiber due to higher silica oxide, aluminum oxide and magnesium oxide content than E-glass fiber. The usage of high performance glass fibers is in very niche applications in aerospace & defense, automotive, sporting goods, wind energy, etc.

The high performance glass fiber market offers a healthy growth opportunity and is likely to grow at a 9.2% CGAR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. High specific strength and modulus than E glass fiber and lower cost than other advanced fibers, such as carbon fiber make it a preferred material for high performance applications. Increasing automotive production, aerospace & defense deliveries, and increasing high performance fiber penetration in performance driven applications, such as helicopter blade and ballistic armor are the key growth drivers of the high performance fiber market.

Aerospace and defense is expected to remain the growth driver of the high performance fiber market during the forecast period. North America is expected to remain the largest market for high performance glass fiber market in the forecast period.

The key high performance glass fiber manufactures are AGY Holdings, Owens Corning, CPIC Fiber glass, Nittobo, and 3B Fiberglass. New product development, collaboration with customers, and long term contacts are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain competitive edge in the market.
