Concrete fiber Market – Market Overview
Concrete fiber also known as fiber reinforced concrete. It is concrete containing fibrous material which increases
its structural integrity. It contains short discrete fibers that are uniformly distributed and randomly oriented. It is
made up from concrete, steel fibers, glass fibers and natural fibers. For many applications, it is becoming
increasingly popular to reinforce the concrete with small, randomly distributed fibers. Their main purpose is to
increase the energy absorption capacity and toughness of the material, but also increase tensile and flexural
strength of concrete.
Concrete reinforced with fibres which are usually steel, glass or “plastic” fibres is less expensive than hand -
tied rebar, while still increasing the tensile strength many times. Shape, dimension and length of fibre is
important. Fibres are usually used in concrete to control plastic shrinkage cracking and drying shrinkage
cracking. They also lower the permeability of concrete and thus reduce bleeding of water. Some types of fibres
produce greater impact, abrasion and shatter resistance in concrete. Generally fibres do not increase the
flexural strength of concrete, so it cannot replace moment resisting or structural steel reinforcement. Some
fibres reduce the strength of concrete. Whereas, major manufacturers based in this region are experiencing
various challenges such as, competition from new & existing players, pressure from environmental agenci
