Fiberglass is known for being anticorrosive and highly strong while having less weight than other materials. This makes it ideal for fabricating aeronautical and construction materials for building lightweight structures that are efficient in their use. Therefore, the high adoption rate of fiberglass in fabricating aeronautical composite parts, along with growth in the aerospace industry, is predicted to foster the market's growth. For instance, according to an article published by Houstex, in 2022, the annual spending on research and development in Texas, U.S., was estimated to be USD 5 billion among 1,400 across the state.

Moreover, the growing investments in new transportation projects with countrywide infrastructure development, such as metro rail projects, is expected to increase the demand for fiberglass assemblies owing to key advantages such as fire resistance, and high tensile strength, among others. This, coupled with the rising demand for glass fiber in the locomotive industry, is expected to drive the uptake of glass fiber yarn and promote market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic impeded the market's growth due to economic decline in major industries such as construction, textiles, locomotives, and aerospace. The disruption in production activities, shortages in raw materials, demand shock, and decline in the availability of labor are some of the major reasons for the market decline during the pandemic. Moreover, major governments executing healthcare restrictions to contain the spread of the virus demanded cancellations in trade activities. Furthermore, stalling of expansion projects by major market players to enhance production capacities due to the adherence to emergency protocols hampered the growth of the glass fiber yarn market.

E Yarn segment is expected to witness the fastest growth

The increasing demand for innovative electronics is resulting in high demand for printed circuit boards with high-performance chipsets. This is causing major market players to invest in electrical glass fiber yarn production to meet commercial consumers' supply standards and requirements. Therefore, the rising uptake of electrical fiberglass due to the high conductance of electricity well suited for modern telecommunications and data processing systems is expected to drive the segment's growth.

For instance, in August 2022, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation announced an investment of USD 7.5 billion to develop and expand its manufacturing facility for a new 12-inch wafer in China. The project involves the construction integrated circuit, expected to be completed by the end of 2024. Therefore, the rising demand for integrated circuit boards, along with the rising adoption of printed circuit boards in the electronics industry supports the growth of the segment.

Ultra fine yarn accounted for the largest market share in 2021

The trend of miniaturization in the fields of telecommunication, electronics, and other industries, along with the rising need for ultrathin printed circuit board (PCB) substrates to accommodate high-performance chipsets, is anticipated to support the growth of the segment. Moreover, the increasing popularity of multi-layer circuit boards in the semiconductor industry and rising demand for wearable gadgets requiring small high-performance integrated circuits (IC) is anticipated to drive the segment's growth.

For instance, in June 2022, Apple announced the launch of the M2 MacBook Air and M2 MacBook Pro. Moreover, the company plans to update the Mac mini with an M2 chip, improving its performance. The emphasis of key stakeholders in developing microprocessors with a smaller size is anticipated to surge the uptake of ultra-fine yarn owing to compatibility advantages. Additionally, the emergence of new applications through research in the field of material and chemistry to develop new forms of ultra-fine yarn with increasing applications is projected to grow the segment.

Facade segment is expected to hold the significant revenue share

The façade segment is anticipated to grow through the forecast segment due to the growing demand for glass fiber yarn to build key structures in large-scale projects such as shopping malls, museums, and monuments, among others. Moreover, increasing infrastructure projects in the medical sector, such as hospitals, along with key market players investing in increasing production to cater to the rising demand for fiberglass material in building various types of façades, is expected to support the growth of the market.
