The burden of regulations for the automotive manufacturers to reduce the vehicle weight has triggered the demand for basalt fibers by nearly 7% during the past four years, explains Fact.MR. The stringent regulations prevailing in the automotive industry regarding the reduction of vehicle weight to reduce emissions has positively impacted the demand for basalt fibers. Moreover, composites made of basalt fibers are being widely used in the aerospace industry for fuel efficiency. The additional properties of fire protection have led to a rise in the demand from the fire protection clothing segment.
Attributed to superior properties as compared to other glass and carbon fiber and steel reinforcements, there has been a constant rise in the demand for basalt fibers. Only 1/10th of basalt fibers is required as a reinforcing material to obtain the same strength as steel. Basalt fibers also exhibit good mechanical strength, chemical and thermal resistance, and are also economically priced as compared to carbon fibers. The increasing penetration of light-weight composite material for automotive, aerospace and building and construction industry is projected to boost the demand for basalt fibers over the forecast period. The rising concern over energy conservation has further led to the growth of the renewable wind energy generation industry, thus, creating traction in the basalt fiber market.
