In a few words
The continuous filament glass fibre industry is the cornerstone of the glass-based composite materials and technical textiles
Glass Fibre Europe members produce approximately 1,000,000 tonnes of melted glass annually from 12 installations operating in 9 countries in Europe. The industry directly employs over 4,500 workers in the European Union and it supports hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs down the industry value-chains.
Glass fibre’s unique properties enable the production of wind energy, electric and electronic devices, and the development of sustainable solutions in a wide range of applications, such as transport and construction. Glass fibre is a versatile material which will be vital to the achievement of the twin transitions to a green and digital economy.
