Future Market Insights
Polypropylene fibre has been recognized as one of the fastest growing synthetic fibres. There has been a significant rise in the demand for non-woven fabrics in the past few years, which, in turn, is driving the growth of the polypropylene market. The polypropylene fibre offers many benefits. For instance, it is a light weight fibre which does not absorb any moisture. It can be used to make a number of hygiene products. Moreover, the polypropylene fibre is chemically resistant to many of the acids and alkalis. As the polyethylene fibre offers lower thermal conductivity and better insulation, it is also often used as a fabric to create thermal wear. Hygiene products make a major application industry for polypropylene fibre and have a significant impact on the growth of the global polypropylene fibre industry.
Global Polypropylene Fibre Market Dynamics
Global Polypropylene Fibre Market Drivers
The major factor driving the growth of the global polypropylene fibre market is that the polypropylene fibre is an economical substitute for many of the conventional fibres in a number of applications like carpets, etc. As a matter of fact, in many of the application areas, the use of polypropylene fibre has reduced the cost to about half of the initial cost.
The growth in major end-use industries like disposable hygiene products and geotextiles, etc. is projected to impact the global polypropylene fibre market in a positive way.
Global Propylene Fibre Market Restraints
One of the major factors restraining the growth of the global polypropylene fibre market is the fact that unlike cotton, nylon and other fibres, the polypropylene fibre has low melting temperature which prevents it from being used in a variety of industries such as the apparels and other household textiles industry. The use of polypropylene fibre is becoming limited to industrial applications.
Global Polypropylene Fibre Market Trends
The current global polypropylene market scenario is such that the manufacturers are focusing on research and development activities to replace the conventional nylon, polyester and acrylic fibres. As the polypropylene market is consolidated, there has been intense competition among the major players. The manufacturers are focusing on highlighting and enhancing particular properties like light weight and cost effectiveness of polypropylene fibre as a product differentiator and creating an edge over other manufacturers. The manufacturers are also focusing on making investments for the expansion of production capacity in developing markets and implementing new technological advancements to improve the quality of the polypropylene fibre.
