Basalt fiber possesses similar chemical properties to glass fibers but have better physicochemical properties than glass fibers. Basalt fiber is stronger, lighter, and corrosion-resistant than conventional steel rebar. It also holds superior chemical resistance and melting point than glass. The basalt fiber market is anticipated to witness high growth due to its demand from end-use industries such as automotive, marine, building & construction, and electronics. Increasing construction activities in several regions due to growth in population, growing income, and government initiatives in various economies to develop better infrastructure are the factors likely to boost the growth of the basalt fiber market.

 

Basalt fibers have a wide scope of applications in various end-use industries such as construction, automotive, electrical and electronics, chemical, aerospace, and marine. In construction, chopped basalt strands are used to increase cracking resistance of cement panels. Due to basalt fiber’s unique chemical stability in extreme conditions, they can be used in many concrete structures, such as bridges, tunnels, dams, and floors. In the production of CNG cylinders, brake pads, mufflers, headliners and other parts for interior applications in automotive industry, high-quality basalt roving, fabrics, and chopped strands are used. Rapid growth across the automotive industry will provide significant opportunities for basalt fiber market in coming years. Basalt fibers are used in the chemical industry for the production of chemical-resistant pipes, protective coatings, storage tanks for corrosive liquids, chemical fertilizers, acids, toxic substances, etc. Basalt fibers are also a good anti-radiation protection material. Additionally, basalt chopped strands are used in the preparation of friction materials.  In electrical and electronics, basalt fibers are used in fire resistant cable construction components as fillers, braiding, tapes, etc. Basalt fibers can be used as a heat-resistant insulating material in the field of printed circuit board manufacturing.  Due to properties such as thermal stability and heat insulation, basalt fibers are used in the aerospace industry. Basal fibers are also useful in military and civilian fields. As the application of basalt fibers are deepening, the market demand for basalt fibers is increasing at a faster rate. Thus, the wide applications of basalt fibers in various end-use industries is driving the demand for basalt fibers.
