Basalt Fiber Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Composites, Non-Composites), By End-Use Industry (Building & construction Automotive, Aerospace & defence, Energy generation, Insulation & thermoacoustic, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102317 | Status : Ongoing



Basalt fiber is a basalt rock product which is considered as an alternative to carbon fiber and glass fiber. It consists of  pyroxene and such minerals as plagioclase and olivine. Basalt fiber has good thermal performance range, supeior electromagnetic properties, high tensile strength, high structural reliablity, mechanical properties, no toxicity and non-combustible. therefore non-combustible. Basalt fiber does not produce any chemical reactions in contact with other chemicals, which can be hazardous to the environment or human health.

Key Market Driver -

Strong applications of basalt fiber in construction materials tend to drive this market.

Key Market Restraint -

Limited number of suppliers and a price concern hamper the growth of the global market for basalt fiber.

The market for basalt fiber is driven by the strong demand from construction material. Basalt can be used in tubes, bars, pipes fittings, internal heat and sound insulation of floors, walls, frame frames, boiler shells, tanks, chimneys, fire protection systems etc. It has good hardness, high mechanical properties, resistance to corrosion, increased temperature tolerance and very good insulating properties and hence it is widely used in construction material.

However, the price of basalt-based fibers is higher than those made of E-glass, but less than S-glass, aramid, or carbon fiber, and as worldwide production increases, its production costs should be further reduced. Thus, the limited number of suppliers and price concerns hamper the growth of the global basalt fiber market.
