Research and Markets: Global Continuous Basalt Fiber (For Molded Materials, Transportation, Electronics, Building & Construction) Market - Forecast to 2019

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Continuous Basalt Fiber Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

Continuous basalt fibers are fibers manufactured by heating and processing basalt rocks. Basalt, a volcanic rock is abundantly available across the globe in earth's crust and ocean beds and is the only raw material employed in manufacturing of these fibers. Continuous basalt fibers have similar physical characteristics as glass fibers but possess higher tensile strength, durability and are also inert to various acids, salts and alkalis.

On account of its superior physical properties and easy renewabiity, continuous basalt fibers are an effective substitute for glass & carbon fibers, asbestos, nylon, and steel among others. The major applications of continuous basalt fibers include molded materials, transportation, electronics, building & construction and other applications such as sports equipment, aviation, and defense among others.

The demand for continuous basalt fiber is driven mainly on account of its superior physical properties over its traditional substitutes such as glass fiber and steel. However, high technological cost of these fibers has restrained the market growth. With increasing research & development activities, the cost is expected to reduce in the near future thus driving market growth in the near future. Continuous basalt fibers are employed in the production of various components of wind turbines including blades. .
