The global continuous basalt fiber market size was valued at $173.7 million in 2020, and is expected to reach $473.4 million by 2030, with a CAGR of 10.3% from 2021 to 2030.  Continuous basalt fiber is manufactured from basalt rock, by melting at 14000C. Continuous basalt fiber is a substitute to fiberglass and steel for reinforcing concrete. Basalt fiber is produced by washing, crushing, and melting basalt rock that is then drawn into continuous stand. Continuous basalt fiber can be used to produce finished and semi-finished products such as geogrids, roving, yarns, rebar, and chopped roving. Continuous basalt fiber is used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense, wind, and nuclear sectors. 

Rise in adoption of continuous basalt fiber in industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense, and construction fuels the continuous basalt fiber market growth. In addition, increase in residential construction and dwelling activities globally acts as a key driving force of the global continuous basalt fiber market. For instance, the residential construction industry in the UK grew by 2.9% from 2015 to 2019. Moreover, the construction industry in the U.S. is expected to grow at a rate of 5%, and reach $1,428.5 billion by 2024. In addition, increase in disposal income of individuals and improvement in standard of living of people in developing countries are expected to boost growth of the market.

Moreover, increase in spending on home remodeling and retrofitting activities, which is expected to rise in demand for non-woven fabrics, and continuous basalt fiber, owing to features such as lightweight, flexible, and corrosion resistant, which drives growth of the continuous basalt fiber market. Rise in standard of living and disposable income of population is expected to increase demand for continuous basalt fiber products in electric vehicles, automotive, and aerospace industries, which fuels growth of the continuous basalt fiber market. For instance, disposable income of population in Brazil grew by 5.3% from 2017 to 2019. 

However, fluctuations in raw material prices and difficulty in promotion of basalt fibers are anticipated restrain growth of the global market. Furthermore, growth in the wind energy market and rise in adoption of environmentally friendly & recyclable materials are anticipated to provides lucrative opportunities for growth of the global continuous basalt fiber market. 

In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down production and sales of various products in the market, mainly owing to prolonged lockdown in major global countries including the U.S., Italy, and the UK. This has hampered growth of the continuous basalt fiber market significantly in last few months, and is expected to continue during the pandemic. Moreover, lockdowns have also led to a halt in construction activities, which hampered demand for the continuous basalt fiber market in 2020.

Analyst Review

The global continuous basalt fiber market has witnessed huge demand in Asia-Pacific followed by Europe & North America. The highest share of the Asia-Pacific market is attributed to increase in demand for continuous basalt fiber products in automotive, aerospace, and defense industries. 

In the aerospace industry, continuous basalt fibers are used for lightweight and high-temperature resistant aircraft parts. In addition, the aerospace sector is undergoing innovations, such as air taxis and large drones, which makes use of continuous basalt fiber. The global automotive sector is undergoing a huge transformation in the form of electric mobility. Use of FRC parts as a replacement for metal and plastic parts reduces weight of electric drive trains, while at the same time, improving the electrical and mechanical properties of the drive systems. The size of wind turbine blades as well as their quantity is expected to increase during the forecast period. The length of wind turbine blades is increased to spike power generation capacity in onshore and offshore wind power plants. In addition, newer composites are expected in the coming years to reduce weight of blades.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected key sectors such as automotive, aerospace, construction, and wind energy. This is expected to hamper growth of the global continuous basalt fiber market.

However, fluctuation in raw material prices and difficulty in promotion of continuous basalt fiber is anticipated to restraint growth of the global continuous basalt fiber market. Moreover, growth in the wind energy market and increase in adoption of environmentally friendly and recyclable material, is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for growth of the global continuous basalt fiber market.
