Based on type of use, composites led the basalt fiber market in terms of value and volume.

On the basis of shape, the basalt fiber market is categorized into two types: continuous basalt fiber and discrete basalt fiber. Continuous basalt fibers are long fibers and find applications in the manufacture of fabrics, yarns and ribbons, among others. Discrete basalt fibers are also called staple fibers. These fibers are available as cut strands of smaller lengths. They are used in the manufacture of mesh, felts and concrete reinforcement, among others.

But, due to the lockdown situation that has arisen due to COVID-19, many floor workers have been unable to work in the manufacturing facilities, resulting in reduced basalt fiber production. Thus, the demand for basalt fiber has decreased in 2020.

The automotive and transportation end-use industry accounted for the largest market share in the global basalt fiber market during the forecast period in terms of value.

Based on end-use industry, the basalt fiber market is segmented into construction & infrastructure, automotive & transportation, marine, electrical & electronics, wind power, and others. New applications for basalt fiber are still emerging in various end-use industries due to efforts and investments being made to bring new applications to market at low cost.

The automotive and transportation industry requires basalt fibers in brake pads, mufflers, headliners and other interior applications. This demand is mainly due to the superior mechanical, physical and chemical properties of basalt fiber.
