$2.5 Bn Steel Fiber (Hooked, Straight, Deformed, Crimped) Market - Global Forecast to 2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 11, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 11, 2019--The “Steel Fiber Market by Type (Hooked, Straight, Deformed, Crimped), Application (Concrete, Composite, Refractories), Manufacturing Process (Cut Wire/Cold Drawn, Slit Sheet, Melt Extract), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The steel fiber market size was estimated at USD 2.0 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.0%.

Steel fiber has various properties such as high tensile strength, durability, corrosion resistance, crack resistance, and enhanced shear strength. Due to these properties, steel fiber is used in various applications such as concrete reinforcement, composite reinforcement, refractories, and others. The superior properties offered by steel fiber are leading to the increasing use of steel fiber in the concrete reinforcement application, which is a major factor driving this market. However, the use of synthetic fiber in some applications is restraining the growth of steel fiber market.

The key drivers identified for the steel fiber market are growing infrastructure and supportive government policies. The restraining factor identified is the replacement of steel fibers with synthetic fibers in certain applications and increasing cost. The market for steel fiber is competitive and is mainly dominated by the established players. The setting up of a manufacturing unit requires high investment, which makes the entry of new players difficult. The threat of substitutes is high some substitute materials are available which can match steel fibers, in terms of performance and cost.
