In recent years, with the shortage of global energy supply and the sharp rise of energy prices, people pay more and more attention to energy conservation.Competent departments and enterprises at all levels attach more importance to energy management than before and have taken corresponding measures.Heat reduction equipment and pipelines used in industrial production in metallurgy, chemical industry, electric power, petroleum and other departments adopt heat insulation measures to reduce heat loss.Because of the use of a large number of efficient insulation materials, so will reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency.


China's glass wool and its products are still in the primary stage of production and application, regardless of product varieties, specifications of serialization or supporting materials, mostly used in pipeline equipment and building air conditioning and insulation.In 2016, industrial output reached 777,600 tons.At present, China's glass wool enterprises glass wool production technology level is uneven, the major brands competition is fierce.

In particular, glass wool products have been in between rock wool and organic foam insulation materials.Although the competition is fierce, but overall stable, the development of seek improvement in stability.Compared with 10 years ago, the total output has increased nearly three times, the number of enterprises has been relatively reduced, and the industrial concentration has greatly increased.In the past two years, due to overcapacity, poor management, declining performance and the impact of environmental protection policies, more than a dozen glass wool production lines have been shut down nationwide, but the total output of glass wool products is basically flat.

At the same time, with the improvement of people's living standard, people are more and more widely required to maintain an appropriate temperature in the living and working environment.Therefore, the heating and air conditioning of the house gradually increases, and the building energy consumption will increase substantially.In order to reduce building energy consumption, light and efficient insulation materials should be used reasonably.Glass wool products are excellent lightweight and efficient insulation materials.Therefore, glass wool board and glass wool felt should be widely used in building energy conservation projects.At the same time, efforts should be made to reduce the energy consumption of glass wool products.


As one of the new functional building materials, glass wool has the characteristics of energy saving and environmental protection, sound absorption and noise reduction, heat insulation and fire resistance.It is not only applied in chemical industry, metallurgy, electric power, petroleum and other fields, but also can be applied in transportation, KTV, opera house, conference room and other fields.Especially from clothing, food, housing and transportation, to the development of industry and high-tech are inseparable from the participation of glass wool insulation materials.Demand drives technology.With the maturity of glass wool production technology, continuous improvement of production capacity, cost reduction, and more and more application fields, the future of glass wool industry may be broader.
