10 December 2020

Dublin, Dec. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Basalt Fiber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global basalt fiber market grew at a CAGR of around 12% during 2014-2019. Looking forward, the global basalt fiber market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.

Basalt fiber refers to a form of fiber-reinforced polymer manufactured using extremely fine fibers of basalt and minerals such as pyroxene, plagioclase and olivine. It is usually processed through pultrusion, prepreg process, compression/resin molding and vacuum infusion to obtain continuous or discrete basalt fiber.

These fibers are further processed to manufacture fireproof automobile and aerospace textiles, filament winding of pipes, tanks and cylinders, reinforced plastics, geogrids, tunnels and refractory bricks. In comparison to the traditionally used glass-fiber, basalt fiber exhibits superior thermal protection, durability, tensile strength, resistance to chemicals and ultraviolet (UV) radiations, low hygroscopic quotient and high adhesive capabilities.

Rapid industrialization, along with the extensive infrastructural developments across the globe, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Governments of both the developing and emerging economies are using basalt fibers for commercial, residential and industrial constructions due to its high cost-effectiveness and non-corrosive properties.

Furthermore, widespread adoption of discrete basalt fiber is also driving the market growth. It is extensively used as an effective substitute for steel and other fiber reinforcements to manufacture light-weight automobile and aircraft components. In line with this, rising environmental consciousness among the masses has led to an increasing preference for recyclable and eco-friendly basalt fiber, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market.

Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of basalt fiber reinforced plastic (BFRP), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. BFRP provides additional support to infrastructural constructions and minimizes the damage caused by corrosion.

Other factors, including the implementation of favorable government policies to lower carbon footprints, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
