Global Basalt Fiber Market to Grow at 10.7% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Considerable Growth in Construction Sector

May 14, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Basalt Fiber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global basalt fiber market size reached a value of US$ 300.8 Million in 2021. Basalt fiber refers to a product derived from naturally occurring complex basalt rock. It is very similar to glass in composition and is considered to be an excellent alternative to glass fiber and carbon fiber. It is composed of pyroxene and minerals, including plagioclase and olivine. It is characterized by high structural integrity and excellent mechanical properties. It is also widely used for its high tensile and impact strength, a wide range of thermal performance and superior electromagnetic properties. Commonly used as a replacement for asbestos, it is employed in numerous industries, such as electrical, construction and automotive sectors, due to its exceptional adhesive capabilities, excellent resistance to chemicals and ultraviolet (UV) radiations, and low hygroscopic quotient.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Basalt Fiber Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by considerable growth in the construction sector. This can be accredited to rapid industrialization and significant expansion of residential spaces. Since basalt fibers are highly cost-efficient with excellent physical properties, they are widely utilized by builders as an essential building material. This is also supported by the favorable initiatives undertaken by several governments to promote the use of these fibers for construction purposes across the commercial, residential and industrial segments. Moreover, the increasing utilization of discrete basalt fiber in the automotive and aerospace industries is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor. These materials are widely employed as preferable substitutes for steel and other fiber reinforcements in the manufacturing of light-weight automobile and aircraft components, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the introduction of basalt fiber reinforced plastic (BFRP) in the market, which is extensively employed in building activities due to its excellent corrosion-resistant property. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the launch of recyclable and eco-friendly basalt fiber and the continual research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% during 2022-2027.
