Global Concrete Fiber Market was valued at USD 2.06 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.89 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 8.30% during the forecast period of 2022-2029. The market report curated by the Data Bridge Market Research team includes in-depth expert analysis, import/export analysis, pricing analysis, production consumption analysis, and climate chain scenario.
Fibrous materials are used in fiber concrete to increase durability, structural integrity, and to control cracking caused by plastic shrinkage and drying shrinkage. Fibers can be flat or circular, and they typically account for one to three percent of the total volume of the concrete mix. Steel, synthetic, and natural fiber are some common fiber material types; these produce greater impact, abrasion, and shatter resistance in concrete. Fiber concrete is used in various applications, including aircraft parking, pavements, tunnel linings, slope stabilization, walls, manholes, dams and bridges, and underground construction, such as tunnel segments, where almost all tunnel linings are fibre reinforced.

Concrete Fiber Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- High Demand Across End Users
The increasing demand for non-corrosive substances, mounting compounds, manufacturing, and mechanical properties will broaden the applicability to a wide range of end-users. The pervasiveness of environmentally friendly and recyclable commodities is one of the unusual circumstances that will accelerate the emergence of the concrete fiber market in the forecast years.
The increasing population has surged the growth of residential building and construction activities, which will further propel the growth rate of the concrete fiber market. Furthermore, rapid industrialization has accelerated the establishment of industries in both developed and developing economies in which concrete fiber is used to improve the tensile strength of industrial structures.
- Surging Investments, Adoption and Funding Activities
Furthermore, the increasing investment in research and development for the production of advanced high strength fiber extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the adopting a new production process which reduces the costs of the products coupled with the surge in concrete fiber market revenue as a result of government initiatives and funding for establishing the industry will further expand the future growth of the concrete fiber market.
- Disadvantages of Concrete Fiber
Steel reinforced concrete is more prone to corrosion, and the weight of fiber reinforced concrete is greater than that of non-fiber reinforced concrete. This factor is impeding market growth.
- High Costs
Concrete fibers cost an extra $7 or $8 per cubic yard to add 1 1/2 pounds of polypropylene fibers, making it more expensive. Furthermore, because concrete fibers are about 10% heavier than non-fiber concrete, fluctuating raw material prices, waste management of synthetic fibers, the danger of corrosion in steel type fibers, and some concrete fibers being subjected to creep and shrinkage are some of the factors hindering market growth. Therefore, these factors will act as a challenge the concrete fiber market growth rate.
