Synthetic Fibers Market Overview:

The latest study conducted by Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals that the global market for synthetic fiber is set to exhibit an above-average CAGR of 7.25% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Unlike natural fibers, synthetic fibers are produced using chemicals.

The procedure involves polymer and monomers linking through polymerization. Synthetic fibers are artificial and possess superior chemical and physical properties such as lightweight, high durability, elasticity and wrinkle resistance.

This has helped in driving the popularity of synthetic fibers extensively. Moreover, such fibers have a relatively lower-price tag then bio-based or natural fibers. They are used in manufacturing products that require moisture resistance, and easy crease recovery.

These essential qualities of the synthetic fiber makes it an apt material for the textile industry.  Synthetic fibers are increasingly used in clothing, home furnishing and automotive interior designing applications. By the year 2023, the global synthetic fiber market is expected to reach USD 144,279.9 Mn in terms of value.

Top Key Players:

  • Bombay Dyeing
  • Dupont
  • Indorama Corporation
  • Mitsubishi Holdings Chemical
  • Reliance Industries Limited
  • Toray Chemicals Korea
  • China Petroleum Corporation

Global Synthetic Fiber Market Regional Analysis:

The market has been covered across major regions such as North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), Asia Pacific (APAC) and South America. During the forecast period, the APAC is expected to spearhead the global synthetic fiber market. In 2017, APAC accounted for more than 58% market share. The market in APAC is anticipated to surpass a valuation of USD 87,800 Mn by the year 2023. The massive population in the region and the high rate of urbanization is likely to drive the growth of the synthetic fiber market in APAC over the next several years.

Global Synthetic Fiber Market Segmental Analysis:

MRFR’s report includes a segmental analysis of Synthetic Fiber Market based on type and application. On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into polyester, acrylic, nylon, polyolefin, and others. In 2017, the polyester segment accounted for over 67% of the market share.

The segment is expected to remain highly profitable during the assessment period. The growing demand for affordable and high-performance fiber in clothing and home furnishing is partly boosting the demand for polyester-based synthetic fibers. The nylon segment currently holds the second position and likely to exhibit a healthy CAGR during the review period. Nylon application has increased in manufacturing of products such as nets, tire cords, tarpaulins, hoses, monofilament fishing lines, conveyor belts, seatbelts, tents, and parachutes.

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into clothing, home furnishing, automotive, filtration, and others. The clothing segment is expected to retain its leading position over 2023. The segment stood at USD 45,102.7 Mn in 2017 and is projected to witness a healthy growth during the assessment period. This can be attributed to the boom of e-commerce and a rise in spending on premium priced clothing.
