Global Glass Mat Market: Definition and Introduction
Glass mat panels are moisture- and mold-resistant panels which are non-combustible and offer improved coated fiberglass mat to maximize the coverage of air/water barrier systems. Glass mats are designed for usage in under exterior claddings where gypsum products were conventionally used. Glass mats have a strong lifespan and find a wide range of applications in construction as well as other industries. The primary function of a glass mat is to prevent active materials from shedding from the positive plate, thereby also preventing oxidation.
In term of applications, glass mats are majorly used in automobiles, motorcycles, wind blade production and industrial areas. Some of the exceptional properties of glass mat include better combustibility, flexural strength, linear expansion with moisture change, heat resistance, surface burning characteristics, etc. Owing to these notable properties, glass mats are used in various areas, such as in drywall tape & accessories, flooring reinforcements, roofing & waterproofing, wall reinforcement and insulation and others.
Global Glass Mat Market: Dynamic
The Global glass mat market is majorly being driven by the growth in construction and infrastructural activities worldwide. Rapidly increasing demand from industrial & chemical sector, especially in developing regions, will give a boost to the global glass mat market during the forecast period.
To reduce emission of harmful substances from fossil fuel energy sources, environmental agencies have created some regulations that indirectly push for higher usage of renewable energy sources. This, in turn, has led to higher demand for wind, as a form of energy. Growth in wind energy market and thus, the subsequent increase in the production of wind turbine blades will ultimately create opportunities for the glass mat manufacturers. However, high prices and presence of alternatives will hamper the growth of global glass mat market during the forecast period
