logoMarket Overview

Chemical storage tanks, other kinds of piping systems, equipment, and other industrial process machinery are generally built out of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP). Manufacturers favor using FRP material for chemical and other industrial processes because of its conventional properties such as resistance to corrosion that can't be beaten when compared to other materials. Fiberglass reinforced plastic is used in a variety of structures including pump station sumps, underground fuel storage tanks, and chemical storage tanks. The manufacturers use different types of technologies to favorably and effectively operate the FRP tank.

logoCovid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth of the Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) tank market in 2020 as a result of the closure of manufacturing facilities and the subsequent limitations on logistics and transportation. The supply of FRP tanks was also affected by supply chain disruptions. Manufacturers made significant changes to their procedures to meet with local and national regulations for employee protection against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Many large-scale manufacturers cut back on operations temporarily or enable production to continue with fewer employees. Moreover, the least demand for these tanks from the end-use industries such as oil & gas, chemicals, and others impacted the growth of the market negatively. For instance, according to International Energy Agency (IEA), the global energy demand decreased by 4% in 2020, the most since World War II and the highest absolute fall ever. This negatively impacted the FRP tank market during the COVID-19 era.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Properties such as endurance and strength of FRP tank is expected to fuel the market growth

Tanks made of FRP are readily accessible for use in several applications. The high-performance epoxy resin exterior surface, which has a seamless one-piece liner made of polyethylene (PE) or ABS, is coated using the FRP coating process. These FRP function as a two-layer shield to help build corrosion protection. FRP tanks are also available in a variety of sizes, from tiny to huge. The FRP tanks are also designed with great corrosion resistance in the account. The resistance to corrosion caused by weather, temperature, and chemicals employed in the industry extends to these factors. The FRP tank shells are also rustproof because epoxy resins were used in their construction. During the anticipated period, all of these variables will help the global FRP tanks market growth.

logo Restraints

  • Volatility in the raw material prices is projected to hamper the market during the forecast period

During the projected period, market volatility for FRP tanks is anticipated to be a hindrance. Polyester resins, Vinyl ester resins, Epoxy resins, Polyurethane resins, Phenolic resins, and hybrid resins are only a few of the petroleum-based derivatives used as raw materials in the manufacture of FRP tanks. The price of petroleum and its derivatives are very volatile due to fluctuations in the market's supply and demand for crude oil. For instance, as per US Energy Information Administration (EIA) report, the average monthly US refiner purchase cost of crude oil reached USD 60.53 per barrel in July 2019, USD 51.36 per barrel in January 2021, and USD 73.81 per barrel in December 2021. The volatile price of crude oil, which also influences the cost of FRP tanks, is a cause of the price volatility of the derivatives and resins used to create FRP tanks. These factors are also providing a sizable disruption in the market for FRP tanks.

logo Opportunities

  • Growing uses of FRP tanks in various end-use industries expected to provide lucrative opportunity for market growth

The increasing use of FRP tanks in various end-use industries is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for manufacturers operating in the market. The FRP tanks have several applications in various industries such as chemical, oil & gas, water & wastewater, and others. For example, due to a variety of reasons, FRP tanks have grown in popularity as potable water storage containers. Because it is noncorrosive, water can be stored for extended periods while being clean and drinkable. Fiberglass-reinforced tanks are a vital solution, particularly in difficult-to-access areas like more remote areas. FRP tanks are easy to clean and have a non-porous interior that prevents the growth of germs or other impurities. FRP tanks can be built in a fully bonded manner to prevent any potential groundwater from entering the tank, keeping the drinking water secure and hygienic. Thus, the growing use of the application in various industries augmented to provide an attractive opportunity to the manufacturers and drive market growth.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global FRP tank market is segmented based on resin type, fiber type, application, and region

Based on resin type, the global market is bifurcated into polyester, epoxy, and others. The polyester segment dominated in 2021 and is expected to show its dominance during the forecast period. The segment growth is attributed to the properties such as versatile, offering good dimensional stability, and having good mechanical, chemical-resistance, and electrical properties. Polyester is a commonly used resin type for the manufacturing of FRP tanks. On the other hand, the epoxy segment is growing at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. In comparison to polyester and vinyl ester resins, epoxy resins have a wider range of characteristics. They exhibit extremely low shrinkage, strong dimensional stability, high-temperature resistance, good fatigue, and adherence to reinforcements, and all of these properties at the same time. They also exhibit outstanding resilience to basic (alkali) conditions and solutions.

Based on fiber type, the global FRP tank market is categorized into carbon fiber and fiberglass. The fiberglass segment was a significant market share in 2021 and is expected to grow during the forecast period. Glass fiber has become more popular recently since it offers high flexibility and is used in many mechanical and electrical industries. They are reasonably priced and provide high strength and recyclability. Furthermore, the materials made from these fibers are recyclable, providing greater space for the industry to expand. Additionally, the expansion of bunkering facilities and the ongoing need for tanks on ships also contribute to the segment's growth.

Based on application, the global market is segmented into chemicals, water & wastewater, oil & gas, pulp & paper, power, and others. The chemical/industrial application is expected to develop at the highest rate during the forecast period, while the water & wastewater application is projected to be the most dominant application in the market. FRP tanks are used in a wide range of water and wastewater applications, including septic tanks, municipal wastewater storage, stormwater management systems, wastewater treatment, oil-water separators, grease interceptors, potable water storage, onsite wastewater tanks, industrial wastewater tanks, water conservation tanks, and fire protection tanks. FRP tanks are becoming more and more used in industrial settings for pulp and paper, chemical processing, and storage of chemicals.
