The Global FRP Vessels Market size is anticipated to exceed USD 8.04 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2022 to 2032. During the forecast period of 2022 to 2032, demand from the water and wastewater treatment manufacturing is projected to propel market growth. However, factory shutdowns, disrupted supply chains, and decreased demand from final-use sectors have all had a negative impact on the FRP vessels market.
Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a cutting-edge composite material that is mainly used to construct chemical plant equipment such as vessels, tanks, and different kinds of piping structures, as well as other kinds of industrial machinery. FRP has some excellent conventional properties, including excellent resistance to corrosion, higher composite properties, low maintenance expenditures, and a long product lifespan. These properties are unrivalled by other existing materials, making it popular in a wide range of chemical as well as industrial applications. FRP vessels are widely used in industries such as water treatment, chemical processing, oil and gas, pulp and paper, and wastewater management, among others. Their excellent properties, such as high strength-to-weight ratio, low thermal conductivity, and chemical resistance, make them increasingly popular for storing and transporting various liquids and gases. The market has grown significantly in recent years as a result of rising demand for environmentally friendly and cost-effective storage solutions. Furthermore, strict environmental regulations governing industrial waste management have accelerated the use of FRP vessels over traditional materials such as steel or concrete.

One of the key reasons for FRP vessels is their excellent corrosion resistance. FRP vessels are a superior alternative to traditional materials such as steel in industries dealing with aggressive chemicals, water, or other corrosive substances. They help to reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment operational life, making them a popular choice for a variety of applications. FRP vessels are significantly lighter than metal vessels while maintaining excellent mechanical strength. This advantage is especially valuable in industries like aerospace and automotive, where weight reduction is critical for improving fuel efficiency and overall performance. Concerns about water quality, as well as the need for efficient water treatment processes, have fueled demand for FRP vessels in the water treatment industry. These vessels are used for water storage, desalination, wastewater treatment, and other similar purposes.
Composite layup, curing, and quality control are all involved in the production of FRP vessels. Manufacturing's complexity can make scaling up production and maintaining consistent quality standards difficult. FRP vessels may have higher upfront costs than traditional materials such as steel. This cost disparity may deter some prospective buyers or industries that value initial investment over long-term benefits.
The Global FRP Vessels Market share is classified into product fiber type, resin, and application.
- In 2022, the glass fiber segment is dominating the market with the largest market share during the forecast period.
The global FRP vessels market is categorized by product fiber type into glass fiber, carbon fiber, and other. Among these, the glass fiber segment is dominating the market with the largest market share during the forecast period. Glass fiber's characteristics such as flexibility, strength, durability, resistance to high temperatures, heat, and moisture are driving the segment's traction among various end-users. Glass segments are widely used in wind energy, construction and infrastructure, marine and transportation, pipe and vessels, and various other industries. Carbon fibers, on the other hand, are relatively expensive and are used in high-end sectors such as the aerospace industry, sports goods, and machinery components.
- The polyester segment accounted for the largest share of the global FRP vessels market in 2022.
Based on the resin, the global FRP vessels market is divided into polyester, epoxy, and other. Among these, the polyester segment accounted for the largest share of the global FRP vessels market in 2022. Polyester is a polyhydric or multi-hydroxyl alcohol that has been combined with organic acids. When exposed to high temperatures, the polyester resin does not expand and exhibits good electrical, mechanical, as well as thermal resistant properties, allowing it to become the fastest-growing sector in China's automotive and chemical industries.
- The water & wastewater segment accounted for the largest share of the global FRP vessels market in 2022.
Based on the application, the global FRP vessels market is divided into automotive & transportation, water & wastewater, chemical, oil & gas, industrial, and other. Among these, the water & wastewater segment accounted for the largest share of the global FRP vessels market in 2022. These vessels are frequently utilized for the preservation of drinking water as well as waste water containing a variety of contaminants and sold wastes of varying densities. FRP vessels have a wide range of applications in a variety of industries, including thermal power plants, insecticides, pharmaceuticals, and many others, which will likely increase their adoption and demand in the near future.
