Market Overview

The Basalt Fiber Market is projected to register a CAGR of around 10% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic affected the basalt fiber market because of supply chain and market disruption. During the pandemic, many manufacturing facilities of basalt fiber were shut down. There was a change in priority to the health sector, and sectors like automotive, building & construction, were on temporary hold. In the building & construction basalt fiber is used as concrete reinforcement and thermal insulation material for buildings. It is also used in automotive for headliners, CNG cylinders, brake pads, and clutch plates, etc.

  • Over the short term, rising demand for Basalt Fiber for the application in the automotive industry and increasing usage in the building & construction industry are some of the driving factors which are stimulating the market demand.
  • Existing substitutes products and their easy availability is supposed to hinder the market growth.
  • Increasing adoption of environmentally friendly materials and fibers for the application in various industries is likely to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.
  • Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market and is also likely to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
