The fiberglass mold market size is estimated at USD 309 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 468 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 8.7% between 2019 and 2024. Fiberglass molds are used in different industries such as wind energy, construction & infrastructure, automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense, and marine industries. They are helpful in providing dimensionally accurate, lightweight, and strong composite materials. The superior offerings provided by fiberglass molds are enabling its usage in the end-use industries. However, the high cost of raw materials is one of the main factors restraining the growth of the market. The raw materials required are mainly fibers and resins that are comparatively expensive than traditional materials. Reducing the costs is not feasible, as maintaining the quality of products required for high-end applications is essential. In addition, the manufacturing process of composites is complex. Therefore, extensive R&D is also required at the micro level to achieve economies of scale.
Epoxy resin-based fiberglass mold holds the largest share in the global market, due to increased demand from wind energy and automotive & transportation end-use industries. Epoxy resin offers better thermal properties, high strength, and durability. It has better physical, mechanical, and adhesion properties and low shrinkage compared to other resins. These properties enable the epoxy resin-based molds to be widely used in the various end-use industries.
Wind energy is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry, in terms of both value and volume, of fiberglass mold during the forecast period. Fiberglass mold is widely used in manufacturing wind blades. The increasing wind energy installations in APAC, Europe, and North America are bolstering the use of fiberglass molds in the wind energy industry. Fiberglass molds are helpful in providing dimensionally accurate, lightweight, and strong composite materials. Component fabricators around the world are constantly looking for molds that exhibit tighter tolerances and longer life. This factor drives the demand for fiberglass mold in the wind energy end-use industry.
The fiberglass mold market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR, in terms of both value and volume, during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for fiberglass molds from wind energy, automotive & transportation, and construction & infrastructure industries. China is one of the prominent consumers of fiberglass molds in the region. The country has become the single-largest consumer of fiberglass molds in the wind energy industry and is expected to strengthen its position further.
