Metal Fiber Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing use of steel fiber in the construction sector owing to various benefits to drive the market

Steel fibers can lower building costs because they can replace traditional reinforcement products, which are significantly heavier and take more time, energy, and resources to make. Due to the reduced need for maintenance and labor, money is also saved. Additionally, it will increase flexural strength, eliminating the strength differential between cast and printed concrete fibers, which will enhance safety conditions at the construction site. Steel fibers’ only drawback compared to steel reinforcement is that it is susceptible to corrosion, which could cause the parent material to degrade and deteriorate. Thus, the increasing use of steel fiber in the construction sector owing to various benefits driving the global metal fiber market growth during the forecast period.

Metal Fiber Market: Restraints

High manufacturing costs and availability of substitutes restrain the market expansion

The high manufacturing cost and availability of substitutes are the major factors that limit the market growth during the forecast period. The world's most technologically advanced nations have successfully explored the manufacture of metal fiber. The development of this technology involves numerous disciplines, including the production of non-woven, porous materials, powder metallurgy, and pressure handling. The market's ability to grow is mostly constrained by this degree of technology. Since this is a high-tech industry, many pieces of manufacturing equipment are not compatible with metal fiber research and design. The majority of businesses own unusual production tools. As cheaper alternatives to metal fiber, ceramics, carbon, and other fibers are available, limiting the global metal fiber market expansion to some extent.

Metal Fiber Market: Opportunities

Growing infrastructure in developing countries

The growing infrastructure in developing countries such as China, India, and others is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth during the forecast period. Metal fibers have found various applications in infrastructure such as the construction of roads, airport runways, bridges, canals, and other infrastructural projects. For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation, through its "National Infrastructure Pipeline," India intends to invest US$ 1.4 trillion in infrastructure over the next five years. Infrastructure-related operations made about 13% of the US$81.72 billion in total FDI inflows in FY21. To realize the goal of housing for all by 2022, India will need to build 43,000 homes per day till that time. The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna scheme has sanctioned 122.69 lakh homes, grounded 103.01 lakh homes, and completed 62.21 lakh homes as of August 22, 2022. (PMAY-Urban).

Metal Fiber Market: Segmentation

The global metal fiber market is segmented based on the product, technology, application, industry vertical, and region

Based on product, the global market is bifurcated into steel, nickel, copper, aluminum, and others. The steel fiber segment is accounted for the largest market share of over 30% and is expected to show this pattern over the forecast period. The segment growth is attributable to the increasing non-structural applications like industrial flooring and shotcrete. This is because, with traditional fiber dosage rates, steel fiber reinforced concrete shows a semi-ductile, strain-softening post-cracking behavior. Moreover, the ability of steel fiber to improve resistance and strength. Besides, aluminum fiber is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to its lightweight and high strength. In addition, the need for metal fibers is driven by the use of aluminum in the automotive and aerospace sectors for chassis, bodies, beams, and other components.

Based on technology, the market is segmented into bundle drawing, foil shaving, machining, and melt spinning. The bundle drawing technology is expected to lead the market over the projected timeframe. Using this technology, continuous metal fiber bundles up to several kilometers in length are possible. Because of the way the operation was designed, the cross-section of fibers is octagonal. This technology may be adjusted to create fibers of the highest quality, producing smooth, ultra-thin strands with a small diameter equivalent width.

Based on application, the global metal fibers market is divided into ESD/EMI protection, filtration, hot glass manipulation, electrical cables, specialties, and others. The ESD/EMI segment is growing rapidly during the analysis period. A range of products is protected against ESD and EMI using metal fibers found in brushes, large bags, plastic compounds, carpet and upholstery textiles, and personal protective clothing. It is projected that the growing need for ESD/EMI protection in textiles will accelerate industry expansion. The usage of fiber and yarns can provide ESD/EMI shielding. Additionally, they can offer a variety of qualities like heating or electro-conductive in general, a conduit for power transfer, and heat-resistant or cut-resistant qualities, among others. Thus, these benefits drive segmental growth.

Based on industry vertical, the global market is segmented into automotive, power & electronics, chemical & materials, aerospace & defense, textile, and others. The automotive sector is expected to dominate the market over the analysis time frame. The segment growth is attributed to the product used in diverse applications, including chassis, body parts, and seats. The major automakers and manufacturers make significant research and development investments to choose cutting-edge and lightweight materials for their vehicles. Furthermore, the government forced automakers to consider mass reduction for automobiles. On the other hand, the aerospace and defense industry is the second largest industry vertical that has a significant market share in 2021. Metal fibers are widely utilized in the aircraft sector for sound attenuation and hydraulic fluid filter medium.

Recent Developments:

  • In May 2021, a brand-new item developed by ArcelorMittal Europe - Flat Products is intended for usage in harsh conditions. The newest pre-painted steel in the Granite® line of organic coated steel from ArcelorMittal is Granite® HDXtreme. It has a coating technique that offers excellent UV and corrosion protection.
  • In October 2022, to promote the decarbonization of the ferrous supply chain, Cargill Metal signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with decarbonized steel company Blastr Green Steel to deliver green steel. The partners will cooperate to supply steel made without the use of fossil fuels in the Nordic region. The duo will accelerate the development of initiatives that will dramatically lower CO2 emissions in the industry.
