Continuous basalt fiber is recognized for its remarkable potential and unique application prospect including resistance to moisture absorption, affordability, and less carbon footprint among numerous alternatives. Reportedly, continuous basalt fiber industry hit a target revenue of more than USD 90 million in 2018. Many aerospace companies around the globe are trying to engage in developing breakthrough technologies and search more and more economical materials which will benefit the sector in the long run.

Many new composite materials are being manufactured on a large scale. Steps have been taken to investigate the use of products such as basalt wool, blankets, and mats to minimize heat transfer in space related applications, especially engine covers. In addition, increasing environmental concerns like pollution and global warming have bounded manufacturers to shift towards greener materials which are compatible with the environment. Such efforts would positively support the demand for more efficient aerospace materials, propelling basalt fiber market size.

Continuous research & development activities and implementation of innovative processes results in improved basalt fiber products which serve new areas of application. In 2017, Michelman and Mafic, a manufacturing company based in USA had unveiled a product development and innovative partnership that would fully focus on surging the performance and surface characteristics of basalt fibers and their usage in high performance environments. Unquestionably, establishing successful collaborations between players will open up significant prospects for basalt fiber industry over the next few years.

AI SpaceFactory, a multi-planetary architectural and technology design agency, in May 2019 was unveiled as the winner of a 3D Printed habitat Challenge from NASA, for constructing MARSHA, which was a 3D- printed basalt fiber composite structure proposed for Mars tenancy. This MARSHA prototype is suitable for automation products and in composites for creating a robust and durable space habitat. Such initiatives and rising investments into the aerospace sector will drive basalt fiber market outlook to some extent over the forecast timespan.

Civil engineering structures are most precarious to the destructive effects from various sources and to overcome from these vulnerabilities, construction contractors and suppliers have diverted their interest towards developing materials with high toughness. This products must resist impacts and blast loading, making them highly suitable for new buildings along damage prone areas. Rising government spending on infrastructure projects in several countries will consistently reinforce the industry demand. According to trusted reports, the construction and infrastructure end-use segment is anticipated to account for nearly 35% of global basalt fiber market share by 2025.

To meet the high demand for infrastructural development, maintenance and life enhancement of structures has become a vital responsibility of construction developers. Because of poor tensile strength, natural disasters like tsunami, earthquakes, and cyclones can destroy the high-rise buildings, monuments, and bridges. Owing to strong basalt fiber applications in construction materials, it can be used in pipes fitting, tubes, sound insulation of floors, frame walls, and fire protection structures. Along with this, basalt products are widely used for chemical resistant protective coating for the pipeline and tanks as well.

Owing to strategically important basalt fiber properties, the material will experience accelerated adoption on a large scale across major end-use segments. Key industry players focusing on providing novel products and seeking business expansion include GMV, Mafic SA, Basaltex, Shanxi Basalt Fiber Technology Co., Sudaglass Fiber Technology and Zhejiang GBF Basalt Fiber Co. Ltd. Global Market Insights, Inc. has projected that global basalt fiber market size will reach USD 400 million by 2025.
