Industrial fabrics are designed and engineered to be used in products, processes, or services of non-textile industries. These fabrics are used by the non-apparel industry for high-performance and challenging applications. Industrial fabrics offer various useful properties such as high durability, abrasion resistance, high strength, good elasticity, and quick drying. These fabrics differ from textile fabrics in several ways and are made of high-performance fibers, yarns, and chemicals to prevent failures that could have dangerous consequences. Functionality, durability, and heat resistance are some of the important features of industrial fabrics as they must be able to handle the environmental factors and structural requirements of applications. Manufacturing industrial fabrics is very difficult as higher value fibers and materials can be more difficult to manipulate due to the intrinsic performance specifications.
The increased use of industrial fabrics in the form of carpets, belts, and seat covers in the automotive end-use industry is one of the major factors driving the growth of the industrial fabric market. Moreover, a rise in demand from the filtration application is a significant opportunity for the industrial fabric market. Demand for industrial fabrics is anticipated to increase in both the developed and developing parts of the world. This is estimated to boost the global industrial fabric market.
Strict regulations pertaining to industrial fabrics act as a major restraint to the expansion of the industrial fabric market. Diverse regulations have been imposed by the governments of different countries regarding the manufacturing of industrial fabrics. These fabrics are subjected to different regulations in their entire value chain, starting from the sourcing stage, design stage, and pre-shipment stage to the manufacturing stage.
The global industrial fabric market can be segmented based on fiber, application, sales channel, and geography. In terms of fiber, the market can be classified into polyester, polyamide, aramid, composite, and other fibers. The polyester segment is expected to dominate the industrial fabric market, both in terms of value and volume, during the forecast period. Increase in demand for aramid fiber in protective and flame resistant clothing is boosting the aramid fiber segment of the global industrial fabric market. Based on application, the market can be divided into transmission belts, protective apparel, conveyor belts, flame resistant apparel, automotive carpet, and others. Automotive carpets is one of the major applications of industrial fabrics. The automotive carpet segment is expected to dominate the industrial fabric market during the forecast period. In terms of sales channel, the industrial fabric market can be bifurcated into online and offline channel. Based on geography, the market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a highly attractive region of the industrial fabric market during the forecast period due to expansion in the automotive industry. The demand for industrial fabrics from various end-use industry is expected to rise considerably, owing to foreign direct investment and rapid industrialization in Asia Pacific.
