Renewable energy

The global concrete fibers market is currently valued at over USD 2,355 million and is expected to surpass USD 3,127 million by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global concrete fibers market, under its textile, fibers, and composites portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like BASF, Bekaert, CEMEX, Propex Operating Company, Sika, and W. R. Grace.

According to Ajay Adikari, a lead analyst for textile, fibers, and composites research at Technavio, “The increase in purchasing power, coupled with a rise in population, is propelling the demand for residential projects across the globe. This rise in the demand for residential and non-residential units is driving growth of the global cement industry, and subsequently the concrete fibers market, during the forecast period.

The demand for concrete fibers in APAC countries is anticipated to increase owing to growing urbanization, an increase in the demand for low-cost fibers such as natural fibers, and an increase in infrastructure development. The market in APAC will also benefit from the increasing expenditure on the R&D of concrete fibers by fiber-reinforced concrete companies.
