Staple Fiber Market to Register a Stout Growth by End 2023

Posted by sanjayhande on November 29th, 2019

Staple fiber can be defined as a fiber of discrete length of any composition, which can be drawn into yarn and can be both natural and synthetic. Staple fibers are synthetic fibers majorly comprising a polyester. They are made from PET or PTA sheets or from recycled PET bottle flakes. Staple fibers made from PTA or PET are called as virgin staple fibers, whereas those made from recycled PET bottle flakes are known as recycled staple fibers. Staple fibers are widely used in textile, automotive, and furniture industries.

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "Staple Fibers Market by Type and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023," the staple fibers market was valued at 1,591 million in 2016, and is projected to reach 6,919 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2017 to 2023. The cotton segment accounted for more than half of the global market in 2016.

Staple fibers are widely used in applications such as construction, apparel, automotive, home furnishing and filtration among others. The yarns of long staple fibers are ideal to manufacture heavy-use objects such as coats, blankets, wrap threads, carpets, and rugs, which has fueled the demand for staple fibers, thereby driving the market growth. Moreover, rise in demand for winter clothing especially across the colder regions has supplemented the demand for staple fibers. In addition, increase in sales of automobiles has accelerated the demand for staple fibers, as they are used in car fabrics such as seats and seat covers. Moreover, increase in use of staple fibers in construction activities due to significant temperature stability and improvement in tensile & shear properties fuel the growth of the market. However, volatile prices of raw materials hamper the market growth.

The cotton segment accounted for around half of the global market, in terms of volume, in 2016. The demand of staple fibers has increased due to increase in use of staple fibers in the automotive industry. Thus, increase in requirement of synthetic staple fibers in automotive upholstery and rise in adoption of new fibers, especially in apparels and clothing, drive the market growth.
