Polyesters Fibers Market: Introduction
Polyester fibers are long chain synthetic polymers that are formed through chemical reactions between an alcohol and acid. Polyester fibers are majorly composed of ethylene glycol (PET) and terepthalic acid. Polyester yarns and fabrics made from this type of polyester are very elastic, strong and have high wrinkle and abrasion resistance. Polyester fibers are extremely strong, resistant to most chemicals and shrinking, stretching, abrasion, wrinkle and mildew resistant. Polyester fibers are hydrophobic in nature and dry quickly. Therefore, they can be used to provide insulation in the form of hollow fibers. Polyester fibers withstand wear and tear longer than cotton and retain their shapes in extreme climatic conditions and are thus preferred for manufacturing outdoor clothing.
Woven or knitted fabrics made from polyester fibers are extensively used in home furnishings and apparels. As a matter of fact, polyester apparels are very common and popular. Polyester fabrics are used to make a wide variety of products – this includes jackets, shirts, pants, blankets, bed sheets, cushioning and insulating material in pillows, upholstery padding, comforters and upholstered furniture. Moreover, due to its tenacity and high strength, polyester is also used to make ropes and yarns that are further used in safety belts, conveyor belts, tapes, tire reinforcements and in plastic reinforcements. Industrial and consumer textiles use polyester fiber to make various products such as non-woven products, road building fabrics, fish netting, seatbelts, laundry bags, transportation upholstery, etc.
Sometimes, polyesters fibers are spun together with natural fibers to attain certain blended properties. For example, blends of polyester and cotton are strong, wrinkle or tear-resistant and bear less shrinkage. Synthetic polyester fibers offer high water, environmental and tear resistance when compared to plant-derived fibers. However, polyester cotton blends are less breathable than cotton and trap high moisture while sticking with the skin. Also, they are less flame resistant. However, since polyester can be retained and molded into any shape, certain insulating properties can be built into polyester fibers.
Polyesters Fibers: Market Dynamics
Increasing constructional activity across the world is a major driving factor for the polyester fibres market. Additionally, carpets and rugs lead the residential and commercial flooring solutions globally and this will also help to increase the demand for polyesters fibres. The thriving demand for polyester fibres from industries such as hospitality, automotive, electronics, household, and manufacturing industries will also affect the market positively. Moreover, subsequent growth of the mattresses market is likely to strengthen the demand for polyester fibres in the coming years.
However, price volatility of raw materials, strict regulations regarding quality standards, etc. are some of the critical constraints that are anticipated to inhibit the sales of polyesters fibres.
