Steel fiber reinforced concrete is the fastest-growing concrete fiber type. It is widely used in various construction and civil engineering applications such as industrial floors, pavements, tunneling, and highways-overlays. Steel fiber reinforced concrete has excellent tensile & flexural strength, shock & fatigue resistance, ductility, and high durability which enables it to provide concrete with enhanced toughness and post-crack load carrying capacity. Steel concrete fiber is used to provide strength to the concrete. It is widely used in manufacturing foundations and rebars. The leading companies manufacturing steel concrete fiber include Bekaert SA (Belgium), BASF SE (Germany), and Sika AG (Switzerland).
The mining & tunnel is the fastest-growing end-use industry segment of the global concrete fiber market. This is due to the increasing demand of concrete fibers in underground construction. Concrete fiber is used in tunnel lining and shafts, slope stabilization, and underground mines applications. Reinforcement is added to shotcrete to provide some pseudo-ductility as well as post-crack load bearing capacity, especially in high-deformation applications, such as those in the mining industry.
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for concrete fiber, with countries such as 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 has been the leading market having accounted for a share of 55.7% in 2015. There are many domestic players such are Reliance (India) and Ultratech Cement (India), which market and supply concrete fiber products globally. The growth in the Chinese market is driven by huge foreign investments in various concrete fiber end-use industries due to availability of low-cost labor and raw materials that are accessible at affordable prices.
