In a few words

The continuous filament glass fibre industry is the cornerstone of the glass-based composite materials and technical textiles
value-chains.

Glass Fibre Europe members produce approximately 1,000,000 tonnes of melted glass annually from 11 installations operating in 8 countries in Europe. The industry directly employs over 4,000 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.
