Global Steel Fiber Market 2018-2019 & 2023

12 February 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's offering.

The steel fiber market size is 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.

"Hooked steel fiber segment is projected to register the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023."

Based on type, the steel fiber market is segmented into hooked steel fiber, crimped steel fiber, straight steel fiber, deformed steel fiber, and others. Hooked steel fiber is projected to be the fastest-growing segment. The properties offered by this type of steel fiber, such as high tensile strength, crack resistance, durability, and shear strength, are expected to contribute to the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

"Concrete reinforcement is estimated to be the largest consumer of steel fiber."

Concrete reinforcement is a major application of steel fiber market. The steel fiber market is projected to register the highest CAGR in the concrete reinforcement segment during the forecast period. The use of steel fiber in the concrete reinforcement helps in achieving good barrier to crack and heavy load and tensile strength. Steel fiber is used widely in the concrete reinforcement of tunneling, heavy duty pavement, precast, shotcrete, airport runways, and others.

"APAC is projected to dominate the steel fiber market during the forecast period."

The steel fiber market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand from the construction industry. Also, the increasing focus of manufacturers in the APAC region, such as Stewols India (India), Zhejiang Boen Metal Products (China), and Hunan Sunshine (India), is another key factor helping the market growth in the APAC region.
