Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Overview

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market is estimated to reach US$ 3.4 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is a type of fiber-reinforced concrete that comprises alkali-resistant glass fibers as its primary fibrous material along with a cementitious matrix. Glass Fibers are synthetic fibers that are used as an alternative to steel in cement mixtures to obtain concrete that is much lighter and equally durable. The most common type of process used to mix and manufacture GFRC is the spray-up process, where a spray gun is used to cut and spray glass fibers. Glass Fiber is renowned for its excellent durability while also being lightweight and eco-friendly, which makes it one of the best alternatives.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, there was a steep decline in the Building & Construction Industry as there was a lockdown implemented in many different countries, and the opportunity for business drastically decreased. For example, according to Eurostat, there was a decrease in the production in the Construction Industry by 25.4% in March and April of 2020 in Europe. Similarly, the demand for and production of raw materials for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete has decreased. The Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market experienced a dip due to a decrease in both raw material production and demand from its End-Use Industry. The Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete market, on the other hand, is steadily rebounding as the global situation improves and is expected to grow at a stable rate throughout the projected period.

Key Takeaways

  • North America held the largest share in the Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market in 2020. This is largely due to the increasing demand of the Building & Construction Industry in North America, with most demand coming from the United States of America.
  • Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is used almost exclusively in Constructions and Infrastructures. The most common applications of GFRC are landscaping, foundations and flooring, cladding and moldings, and others.
  • Due to its lightweight properties along with its durability, and being eco-friendly, GFRC is becoming increasingly popular for landscaping.

Drivers - Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market 

Increasing Demand for Commercial, Civil and Residential Constructions: One of the major causes driving demand for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is the growing demand for buildings and constructions, particularly large commercial projects such as retail malls, offices, theatres, and restaurants. According to the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction, construction is expected to rise at a 2.6 percent annual rate in 2019, with Asia-Pacific, particularly China, witnessing a 4.4 percent annual growth rate. Although the Construction Industry's growth rate slowed in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is expected to rebound steadily in the future years. With a growth in demand for the building and construction industry, demand for the glass fiber reinforced concrete market is also on the rise.

Opportunity - Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market 

  • Lightweight, Durable and Eco-Friendly properties of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete:

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is becoming a more desired option over concrete as it is 80 percent lighter and durable. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is also a much eco-friendlier option when compared to its alternatives. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete has a much lower carbon emission and due to its lightweight frame, requires much lower construction emissions. These reasons make Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete much more desirable for use in public, domestic and commercial constructions.

Challenges - Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market 

  • Expensive and lack of Longevity in comparison to concrete:

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is much more expensive in comparison to regular concrete. Ready Mix Concrete typically costs $66.4/cubic meter in India, whereas Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete mix costs an average of $93/cubic meter. Other than that, Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete loses its strength over a long period of time while regular concrete doesn't. Due to this, Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete must be renovated more frequently than regular concrete. These factors prove to be a challenge for the Glass fiber Reinforced Concrete Market.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis – By Type

Sprayed type holds the highest share in this segmentation of the Glass Fiber Reinforced Market in 2021. The spray cannon is perfect for cutting and spraying glass fibers because of its ease of use. Because of the high density and length of the fiber, the ultimate product has outstanding strength. Cutting glass fibers to create long lengths is more time-consuming and costly, but when mixed with cement, it provides significantly higher strength. Hybrid Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is the least commonly utilized type of GFRC since it is more difficult to create technologically and thus more expensive.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis – By Material

Cement holds the largest share in the Glass Fiber Reinforced Market in 2021, followed by Fine Aggregate (Sand). The total cement production in the world is predicted to be 4,100,000 billion tonnes, with China accounting for 55 percent and India accounting for 8%. According to the International Finance Corporation, however, Covid-19 is predicted to reduce global cement consumption by 3% year over year. Glass fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is made up of a variety of ingredients, the most common of which are cement and sand, which account for around 40% of the total. According to the World Cement Association, global cement production in 2018 was predicted to be 4215 million tonnes, with China dominating the market. Depending on the manufacturing process, such as sprayed or premixed, the percentage of AR glass fiber is usually between 2 and 5 percent. 

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis – By Application

Façade holds the highest share in the application of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) in 2021. GFRC is most commonly used as panels on facades of buildings. The term "façade" refers to a building's front appearance, which combines high quality and design while also establishing a theme for the structure. However, the term "façade" is now often used to refer to any face of a building envelope that is mostly vertical. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is one of the greatest solutions for Facades since it delivers both excellent performance and aesthetics. Landscaping, cladding & moldings, foundations & flooring, countertops, and more are some of the other common uses for GFRC. 

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis – By End-Use Industry

The buildings & Construction Industry will hold the largest share in the Glass Fiber Reinforced Market in 2021. GFRC is mainly utilized in a variety of applications in the Construction Industry. GFRC is a much better alternative to concrete due to it being lighter by almost 80% and retaining equal durability. Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM's) are slowly adopting GFRC in commercial and domestic constructions due to its excellent properties. As of now, the Building & Construction Industry is on the rise after a rough term due to COVID-19. The Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction stated in their 2020 Global Status Report that the Buildings and Construction industry in APAC, and China, in particular, is witnessing a growth of 4.4% per year while North America is growing at a rate of 1.2% and Europe at 2.3% per year. According to Invest India, the Construction Industry is projected to reach $1.4 trillion by 2025. We can similarly expect the demand for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete to increase in demand as well. 

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis – By Geography

North America held the largest share in the Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market in 2021. North America, especially the United States of America, has a high demand for concrete reinforcing fibers for buildings and constructions. Residential construction spending has constantly grown over the years, and the demand for concrete reinforced with fibers is constantly on the rise. According to the United States Census Bureau, there were a total of 1.4 million constructions in June 2020 with an estimated annual rate of $1,355.2 billion. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete has many properties that make it desirable and noteworthy, and as such, it is the growing at a fast rate in the United States as well as North America as a whole. As such, the demand for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is highest in North America.
