DUBLIN, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l4fw9s/textile_glass) has announced the addition of the "Textile Glass Fibers - Global Strategic Business Report" report to their offering.

This report analyzes the worldwide markets for Textile Glass Fibers in Thousand Tons by the following End-Use Segments: Construction, Automotive, Industrial/Commercial Equipment, Marine, Consumer Goods, Paper & Fabrics, and Others.
The report provides separate comprehensive analytics for the US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Latin America. Annual estimates and forecasts are provided for the period 2010 through 2018. Also, a six-year historic analysis is provided for these markets.
Growth in the coming years would be attributed to the increased demand for non-corrosive, durable and lightweight components and the relatively lower cost of textile glass fibers in comparison to substitutes.
Rapid population growth, robust urbanization trend, implementation of new infrastructure projects, and focus on sustainability are expected to bolster demand for glass fiber reinforcement composites, particularly in emerging markets. Another factor facilitating this growth is the rising popularity of textile glass fibers amongst equipment manufacturers, due to the superior performance offered by textile glass fibers when compared to conventional materials such as steel, aluminum and iron.
However, the growth rate is expected to vary in different market segments, given its penetration level as well as performance versus price criteria in that specific application. Especially, wind energy, marine and aerospace industries are expected to witness strong growth in the upcoming years.
As stated by the new market research report on Textile Glass Fibers, the United States represents the largest market for textile glass fibers, with growth largely driven by the increasing use of textile glass fibers in reinforced plastics.
In the coming years, demand is expected to emerge from the rapid strides being made in the region's marine industry, and through its increased use asphalt construction products, such as shingles. The market, however, is likely to be affected by the increasingly mature conditions in few end-use markets, such as paper products and mechanical rubber applications, and the rising low cost imports from Asia-Pacific countries.
