Metal Fiber Market Outlook - 2027

The global metal fiber market was valued at $4.5 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $5.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2027.

Metal fiber simply implies a fiber that is produced using metal. Most of the applications of metal fibers are based on the properties such as good heat resistance, electrical conductivity, and high strength. It is also highly adopted in filtration application owing to its advantages such as high porosity for low pressure drops, corrosion resistance, flexible for tailor made small products, and others. Moreover, metal fiber-based filters are reusable with no decrease in efficiency. This recyclability allows metal fibers to support the circular economy.
