Posted by Mrudula Karmarkar on September 15th, 2022

The global technical textile market size is estimated to reach USD 272.3 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2022 to 2030. The technical textile product exhibits exceptional strength, durability, and superior performance, which makes them fit for several industrial applications.

Increasing concern towards agriculture and attaining high crop yield is one of the major factors fueling the growth of agro textile in the market. Several nets manufactured under agro textile including plant nets, bird protection nets, monofil nets, root ball nets, and various others are extensively used for passive protection of agricultural seeds, crops, or fruits against any external damage.

Increasing technological advancements coupled with the rising demand for high-performance and energy-efficient fabric are acting as a propelling growth factor in the market. In addition, stringent government policies regarding the use of effective personal protective equipment have driven the market growth on a positive note.

 Increasing awareness regarding the benefits of technical textiles in various end-user industries is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The global technical textiles industry has experienced moderate growth as a consequence of the economic recession caused by the Covid-19 crisis. During the initial phase, the industrial activities observed setbacks, as a result, the market has also experienced a catastrophic setback.

The spread of COVID-19 in the U.S positively influenced the demand for textiles. The stay-at-home instructions have also influenced the demand for hometech products. The U.S. is expected to be the largest market for technical textiles in North America, on account of the expansion of industries including medical, agriculture, and construction. Technical textiles majorly use man-made raw-material such as fibers consisting of viscose, nylon, acrylic/modacrylic, high-density, and polymers, which cater to cost-intensive manufacturing techniques. Thus, the technology used for the production of the above-mentioned synthetic raw materials is likely to negatively impact the growth of the market
