(EnergyIndustry.Net, December 13, 2019 ) The report "FRP Tank Market by Resin Type (Polyester and Epoxy), Fiber Type (Carbon & Glass), Application (Water & Waste Water Treatment, Chemical, Oil and Gas, Pulp & Paper, and Power) - Global Forecast to 2021", The FRP tank market was worth USD 1.76 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 2.32 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 4.73% between 2016 and 2021.
The market for FRP tank is driven by the increasing demand for lightweight and non-corrosive storage tanks in water treatment, chemical, and oil & gas applications. Lower maintenance of FRP tanks also helps in lowering the overall operating cost of storing and transporting water and other chemicals.
Glass fibers comprise a major share in the FRP tank market, in terms of value
Glass fiber is the leading type of fiber used for various FRP tanks applications such as chemicals, oil & gas, water & waste water, pulp & paper, and so on. This is because of its lower cost and superior properties such as strength, flexibility, durability, stability, lightweight, as well as resistance to heat, temperature, and moisture. Less complexity and lower maintenance cost in manufacturing of glass fiber-based FRP tanks contributed to the dominance of these tanks.
Water and Waste Water is the largest application market for FRP tank, in terms of volume
FRP tanks generally use glass fiber reinforced polymers and offer complete solutions against highly corrosive fluids and harsh environment conditions at various temperatures, pressures, and adverse weather and soil conditions. Composite tanks are used in portable water storage and waste water storage. Wastewater contains faeces, urine, and other solid waste in different concentrations having different densities, particle size, and hardness; these particles damage the tanks from within. Traditional tanks made up of steel used to corrode quickly and break due to the nature of waste they carried. Metal tanks in the sewage system are now being replaced by the FRP tanks.
