Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Analysis

ID: MRFR//4759-HCR | 125 Pages | Author: Tejas Chaudhary| July 2024

Technological advancements, increasing construction activities and sustainability in building materials are some of the major factors leading to the changing market dynamics of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC). The construction industry has greatly embraced the use of GFRC which is a composite material consisting of cement, glass fibers, water and other additives due to its exceptional strength and durability.

On another hand, demand for greener or more environmentally friendly constructions materials such as those with low carbon emissions is another factor that affects GFRC’s market dynamics. At this point in time many house makers and architects would prefer using products which have less effect on our surroundings. By offering more sustainable options through substituting it with traditional concrete in some occasions GFRC meets these criteria. Moreover, while adding strength to the constituent material, glass fibre also reduces its overall cement content thus contributing towards ecologically sounder concreting methods.

The development of GRFC has been shaped by technological improvements made on both glass fibres and concrete additives. High performance glass fibres have resulted from innovations in their production which increases overall durability and strength of GFRC. Besides, GFRC workability as well as performance characteristics has been improved through specialized additives making it a preferred choice for architects and builders who want flexible materials for their projects.

Other major drivers of changes in the GFRC market are the growth of construction industry and urbanization. The demand for durable and attractive building materials such as GFRC has continued to rise globally due to increased investment in infrastructure projects as well as real estate development. Its light weight nature and ability to take any form helps architects in making choices concerning architectural applications like cladding, façades, or ornamental elements.

On the other hand, challenges like higher initial cost compared with traditional concrete material and limited knowledge among builders about its importance slows down the pace of its wide usage. Nevertheless, as long-term advantages of GFRC become better known within the industry such as reduced maintenance costs and longer life span; these market dynamics will move towards more favorable conditions.

COVID-19 analysis

COVID-19 is a dangerous virus. It does more than make some people deathly ill. The virus can cause long-term health issues and complications. What makes matters worse is that people who have made a full recovery can contract COVID-19 again a few months later. These factors and more are part of what makes COVID-19 one of the most dangerous viruses of the post-modern world.

Governments realized this early last year. That’s why they decided to impose lockdowns and quarantines. These had little effect on stopping the spread of the virus. That’s why they were temporary. In any case, the effects on most businesses in most industries around the world were far from temporary. Many businesses were forced to either halt production temporarily or drastically scale back operations (because of the lockdowns and quarantines!)

Well, it turned out that companies in the glass fiber-reinforced concrete industry suffered the exact opposite fate. Most of these companies flourished. There was a reason for this. People around the world (especially in Western nations) were focusing on remodeling and renovation projects of their residential units. This created unprecedented demand for glass fiber reinforced concrete.

List of key major companies in the Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market are:

  • Willis Construction Co., Inc. (U.S.),

  • Fibrex Construction Group (UAE),

  • Formglas Products Ltd. (Canada),

  • Clark Pacific (U.S.),

  • Ultratech Cement Ltd. (India),

  • Betofiber A.S. (Turkey),

  • BB Fiberbeton (Denmark),

  • Nanjing Beilida New Material System Engineering Co., Ltd. (China),

  • Stromberg Architectural (U.S.), Low & Bonar (U.K.) and

  • Loveld (Belgium).

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Market Dynamics


The main factor that has been driving fiber reinforced concrete market growth is the fact that the building community (along with the global) community is becoming more environmentally conscious. They are demanding that buildings be built with materials that are friendlier to the environment.

Governments are also passing regulations and laws that require all types of buildings to conform to green standards. This is also bolstering growth for the fiber-reinforced concrete industry. The United States, especially, has implemented many programs which encourage the use of glass fiber-reinforced concrete. One such program is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.


Many companies in the fiber-reinforced concrete industry are being lured by the higher CAGR and the relative lucrativeness of the market. Thus they are investing heavily in research and development. The goal is to try to develop better forms of concrete that are superior in nature and have more useful innovations and applications. The companies also want to sell the concrete at higher price points than they could in the past.

That’s why they’re developing materials that are fire-resistant and retardant. Another opportunity is the fact that many developers and customers want to use and see GFRC structural insulated panels be used in units more often - this is for both commercial and residential units.


What’s holding back growth in the fiber-reinforced concrete market is the fact that this concrete is much more expensive than other types of concrete are. Another factor is that this concrete is not very ductile and it’s hard to find the labor that is skilled enough to use this type of concrete.


The companies in the flass fiber-reinforced concrete market face a key challenge. That lies in developing superior products that the end customer will like and buy while keeping the price points for the end products in the reasonably affordable range for most people around the world.

Cumulative growth analysis

The CAGR for the glass fiber-reinforced concrete market is projected to be 10.3% until 2030. The fiber-reinforced concrete industry is expected to be worth USD 7.17 billion by 2030.
