The global continuous basalt fiber market was valued at USD 51.4 million in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 104.7 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 10.9% between 2013 and 2019.
Continuous basalt fiber are more efficient and eco friendly than most glass & carbon fibers. Continuous basalt fibers can be processed to have higher tensile strength than steel and are rust free as they are chemically inert. Thus, superior physical properties coupled with easy renewability of continuous basalt fiber have been a major driving factor for the demand of these fibers. Continuous basalt fibers are employed in the production of various components of wind turbines, majorly blades. Thus, the growing demand for wind energy is expected to be a major growth opportunity in the coming years.
