Drivers

  • Increasing the investments in the infrastructure sector

FRP grating offers corrosion resistance, high strength to weight ratio, UV resistance, Minimal thermal expansion, low electrical and thermal conductivity, and anti-skid surface. These properties are expected to fuel the demand for the FRP grating across various end-use, including infrastructure sectors such as building and construction.

Demand for FRP grating is rising across the infrastructure sector is due to FRP gratings' low life cycle cost. Growing awareness regarding the advantages of FRP grating over conventional gratings. FRP offers an optimal strength to weight ratio alongside superior durability and affordability. FRP is composed of a protective polymer reinforced with high strength fibreglass. These materials together create a premium composite with many potential construction applications. FRP outperforms wood and concrete for bridges, pedestrian pathways, and other structures, while holding up the decades of wear and tear. Moreover, extremely versatile by nature, FRP is easily available, easy to install, and maintenance–free fabrications, making them ideal for infrastructure sector. All the aforementioned characteristics and advantages make FRP gratings the smartest choice for infrastructure projects adding to the growth of the molded fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating market.

  • Providing a safer alternative to steel

FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic) is considered 70% lighter than steel with exceptional strength – to weight ratio. FRP is non-conductive and slip resistant, considered a safer alternative to steel. The glass fibre provides strength and stiffness, and the resin provides shape and protects the fibres. FRP composites have greater flexural strength, and pound – for pound is often stronger than steel and aluminum in the lengthwise direction. FRP reinforcement can have more than double the tensile strength of steel. FRP products are non-conductive and have a higher friction factor than steel, reducing the risk of electrical shocks and injuries caused by slips. Therefore becoming the clear choice for safer structural products. Moreover, stiffness and strength to weight ratio are important parameters when selecting the right material for building and infrastructure work. FRP strength to weight ratio is superior to steel, making it the right and smart choice. This can drive the market to growth in the forecasting period.

Opportunities

  • Increase in application and advancement in aerospace, automotive, construction, rail and container transport

Fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) belongs to the category of composite materials, which comprise polymer matrix and other supporting fibrous materials. The materials are usually hard thermoset resin and resist chemical or abrasive damage. Due to these properties, FRP has huge opportunities in the following industries: aerospace, automotive, the construction field, and marine infrastructure. In the Aerospace industry, Carbon fibres in FRPs reduce the weight by 25% but ensure equal or greater strength than aluminum sheets. They also offer tensile strength and are more tolerant to harsh environments and extreme temperatures, which is crucial for aerospace industries. In the automotive industry a high strength-to-weight ratio is the Holy Grail for the automotive industry. This will help in reducing the weight and saving cost consumption of fuel, and with its lightweight properties, it will also help in increasing speed. In the construction industry, FRP is used to fortify existing structures (such as slabs, columns, or beams) to enhance their load-bearing capacity or to repair damage. This is extremely cost-effective and useful when it comes to equipping older structures. FRP is also used to manufacture highway structures like guardrails, signboards, drainage system and bridge decks, auto skyways, utility poles pipelines, oils, and gas and sewage. It is also used to build prefabricated houses, household furniture, appliances, swimming pools, and bathroom equipment. Hence, there is a huge opportunity for the company to grow in the market in the forecast period with the opportunity in various manufacturing industries like aerospace, automotive, marine, and construction industries.

Restraint/Challenge

  • Difficulties in the reuse or recycling of FRP grating product

Molded fibreglass reinforced plastic grating is produced using resin, glass fibre, and other auxiliary materials as raw materials. Most FRP gratings have a long term service life of up to several years and are intended for going through many harsh conditions. Despite a wide preference and benefits of FRP grating, significant issues associated reuse or recyclability of the product is present in molded FRP grating market. Recycling means energy must be expended to convert waste into something valuable. In this scenario, molded FRP and almost all other products have no value for recycling or reusing. Existing methods for recycling these products are either too much costly or not as per the industry standards. The available process of recycling FRP grates includes three major types: physical recycling, energy recycling, and chemical recycling. All of these are very costly methods for application. Moreover, not having proper recycling methodologies available in the market makes the molded FRP grating market face challenges from regulatory bodies due to increasing awareness of sustainability goals. In addition, the non-availability of proper applications to commercialized products is expected to lead to a significant drop in sales for molded FRP grating products and acts as a bottleneck in the growth of the Europe molded fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating market.
