Basalt fiber is a material whch is made from very fine fibers of basalt. This fiber is composed some important minerals such as pyroxene, plagioclase, and olivine. Basalt fiber is similar to fiberglass, and having better physic mechanical properties than fiberglass, but being considerably cheaper than carbon fiber. It is used as fireproof textile in the automotive and aerospace industries and can also be used as a composite to manufacture products such as camera tripods.
Global Basalt Fiber Market Dynamics
- Increasing usage of basalt fibers as an alternative
Basalt fibers have proven improved chemical and heat resistance, mechanical strength, insulation, and other qualities. The qualities such as lightweight and corrosion resistance allow to increase the usage of basalt fibers without the use of lifting or other specialist equipment. The increasing usage of basalt fibers as an alternative to steel reinforcements is anticipated to drive the market's growth rate.
- Advantages associated with basalt fiber
Developed countries have been focusing on improving their current infrastructure, which is generating demand for sustainable and advanced materials such as basalt fiber globally. Basalt is a natural, eco-friendly, high-quality raw material. Unlike numerous conventional fibers, basalt produces no harmful emissions during processing and manufacturing. Basalt-reinforced composites can fulfill disposal requirements of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) because they can be completely burned, which is favorable for the environment.
- Growing demand for the lighter materials
Basalt fibers are light and strong than other materials. They are generally light in weight and stronger than steel, which is highly used on the place of steel. The automotive sector is highly focussing on manufacturing lightweight automobiles, which create the demand for the lightweight materials. Automobile producers need to decrease vehicles' average fuel consumption, so this purpose can be fulfilled by using lightweight materials such as basalt fibers. The increasing demand of lightweight material likely to boost the growth rate of the basalt fibers market.
- Surging investment for market development
Governments augmented their investments in industrialized emerging economies to develop the infrastructure projects which holds significant potential to drive the basalt fibers market. For instance, per the Euro Construct report 2019, construction output reached around USD 1,900 Billion in European nations. Since the higher mechanical strength provided by basalt fiber in extreme construction situations is estimated to create beneficial opportunities for the growth of the basalt fiber market.
- Issues associated with basalt fiber
The increasing demand for basalt fibers as a strengthening material for the construction of roads, bridges and pavements, among other things, has resulted from augmented government spending on industrial and infrastructure development. However, there are some obstacles to the production of basalt fibers. For instance, the quality of basalt rock and correct chemical composition required for the creation of basalt fibers are only available in few regions in Eastern Europe. This is estimated to restrain market demand during forecast period.
