The global concrete fiber market is projected to reach USD 3.09 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2016 to 2021.

In this study, the years considered to estimate the market size of concrete fiber are:

  • Base Year – 2015
  • Estimated Year – 2016
  • Projected Year – 2021

2015 has been considered the base year for company profiles. Whenever information was unavailable for the base year, the prior year has been considered.

Objectives of the Study

  • To forecast the market sizes in terms of values of segments with respect to the five key regions (along with the countries) which are, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • To strategically analyze the market segments with respect to the type and end-use industry
  • To provide detailed information regarding the key factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges)
  • To analyze the opportunities in the market for stakeholders and draw the competitive landscape for market leaders
  • To track and analyze competitive developments, such as agreements & partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, new product launches, and investments & expansions in the concrete fiber market
  • To strategically profile key players and their core competencies in the market

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for the identification and collection of information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers & certified publications, Factiva, Bloomberg, Businessweek, Fiber Reinforced Concrete Association (FRCA) ingredients certifications, and articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both, the supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the concrete fiber market size, in terms of value, on the basis of the type, end-use industry, and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data via primary interviews, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

The figure below provides a break-up of the primaries.

Concrete fiber follows a chain of independent activities that add greater value to the final product. The value chain covers all stages beginning from the sourcing of raw materials to the delivery of the finished product, which is finally used in various end-use industries. Concrete fibers are used directly or are mixed with concrete. The fiber is transformed into different products, such as fabrics, mesh, yarn, and chopper fiber for different applications. The next node is concrete fiber material type. The leading players who manufacture almost all varieties of concrete fibers type include BASF SE (Germany), Sika AG (Switzerland), and Propex Global (U.S.). The third node of the value chain comprises of concrete fiber manufacturers. The major manufacturers of concrete fibers include- Bekaert SA (Belgium), Owen Corning (U.S.), ABC Polymer Industries (U.S.), Sika AG (Switzerland), and Propex Global (U.S.). These companies entered into agreements and partnerships with other small/medium organizations to expand their business and serve various end-use industries.

The global concrete fiber market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 3.09 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.2%, from 2016 to 2021. Increasing demand of synthetic concrete fiber across various end-use industries such as transport infrastructure, building & construction, and mining & tunnel is driving the global concrete fiber market.

The steel concrete fiber type segment dominates the concrete fiber market. It has excellent tensile & flexural strength, shock & fatigue resistance, ductility, and high durability. These properties enable it to provide enhanced toughness and post-crack load carrying capacity to the concrete. The leading companies manufacturing steel concrete fiber include Bekaert SA (Belgium), BASF SE (Germany), and Sika AG (Switzerland)

The transport infrastructure is the largest end-use industry segment of the global concrete fiber market. This is due to the increasing demand of concrete fibers in the road industry. In transport industry concrete fibers are used to manufacture roads, highways, bridges, railways, and ports & airports.

North America is one of the key concrete fiber markets. Globally, it is the largest market respect to demand as well as product innovation in terms of quality and application development. The U.S. is the largest country in North America and one of the key consumers of concrete fiber, accounting for a major share of the North American concrete fiber market. The country’s concrete fiber market is witnessing growth in demand due to the increasing use and expanding. There are many concrete fiber manufacturing companies like ABC Polymer Industries (U.S.), Cemex (Mexico), Nycon Corporation (U.S.), and Owens Corning (U.S.).

The Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market, with countries like China, India, Japan, South Korea, and others witnessing an increase in the demand for concrete fiber. Major global manufacturers are focusing on setting up distribution networks and R&D centers in this region. In Asia-Pacific, China is the leading market having accounted for a share of 55.7% of the total market share in 2015. There are many domestic players such are Reliance (India) and Ultratech Cement (India), which market and supply concrete fiber products globally.
