The Development Trend of Glass Fiber Industry
Glass fiber is a kind of inorganic nonmetallic material with excellent performance. It is made of glass ball or waste glass as raw material through high temperature melting, wire drawing, yarn complex and weaving. With good insulation, high heat resistance, good corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength, it is usually used as reinforced material, electrical insulation material and insulation material, circuit substrate and other fields of national economy.
The development speed of glass fiber industry in China is far higher than the world average level. The output of glass fiber increased from less than 10% in 2000 to 54 in 2010. China is the largest consumer of glass fiber in the world. In 2011, China consumed 310 thousand tons of glass fiber yarn, an increase of 15.28 over the
same period last year. The application of glass fiber is especially widely used, with the increasing investment of national related industry planning and basic equipment (equipment related door and window information), the industry will meet the new opportunity to develop.
