DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Basalt Fiber Market by Form (Continuous and Discrete), End-Use Industry (Construction & Infrastructure, Automotive & Transportation, Electrical & Electronics, Marine), Usage (Composites, Non-Composites), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The basalt fiber market size is estimated to be USD 227 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 397 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 11.8% between 2019 and 2024.
Basalt fibers are used in different industries such as marine, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, construction & infrastructure, wind energy, and others. They exhibit various properties such as non-corrosiveness, heat & fire resistance, and high mechanical strength. The superior properties offered by basalt fiber are enabling its usage in the end-use industries.
The basalt fiber market comprises major solution providers such as Kamenny Vek (Russia), Mafic SA (Ireland), Zhejiang GBF Basalt Fiber Co. Ltd (China), Technobasalt-Invest LLC (Ukraine), Russian Basalt (Russia), Sudaglass Basalt Fiber Technology (US), and Isomatex (Belgium).
The study includes an in-depth competitive analysis of these key players in the basalt fiber market, with their company profiles, recent developments, and key market strategies.
Continuous basalt fiber accounted for the largest share, in terms of value and volume, in the basalt fiber market
Continuous basalt fiber dominated the global basalt fiber market in 2018. Continuous basalt fibers possess characteristics, such as superior efficiency, higher tensile strength, and excellent mechanical properties. Also, these fibers are eco-friendly, which makes them suitable for various applications, such as reinforcing nets, pipes, containers, electrical insulation materials, basalt plastic products, and others.
Additionally, they offer higher strength than steel which makes them a preferred material in the construction industry. The high market share of continuous basalt fibers is attributed to its significant properties.
The basalt fiber market in the construction & infrastructure end-use industry is expected to register the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2024
The increasing use of basalt fiber in the construction & infrastructure industry is mainly due to its environmentally friendly properties, good compatibility with concrete, and easy mixing at high concentration. Basalt fiber offers higher mechanical properties that are required for construction in extreme conditions and at a much lower price compared to all other alkali-resistant fibers.
Industry experts concluded that a ton of basalt rods could provide reinforcement equal to 4 tons of steel rods. All these benefits make basalt fiber product a good and economical alternative to alkali-resistant fibers, which are presently used in the market.
The basalt fiber market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR, in terms of value and volume, between 2019 and 2024
APAC dominated the global basalt fibers market. The region has the presence of many manufacturers of basalt fibers and its products. China accounted for a major share of the global basalt fiber market and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The rising awareness among the Chinese manufacturers regarding basalt fiber production, and the increasing demand for environmentally friendly and high-performance materials is driving the basalt fiber market in China. Also, the low cost of raw materials coupled with less stringent government regulations are driving the market in the country.
