In terms of types of products, the Glass Fibers Marketcan be segmented into E-class glass fibers and performance glass fibers. Performance glass fibers include C-class glass fibers, S-class glass fibers and D-class glass fibers; these offer special characteristics, and are therefore used in technical applications. Owing to their lower cost, high tensile strength, and high modulus, E-class glass fibers accounted for over 85% of the Glass Fiber Market in 2013. Performance glass fibers are relatively costlier; these are used in limited applications in general-use products. Building & construction accounted for the largest market share among all applications, followed by transportation application in 2013.
