The COVID 19 outbreak widely affected the textile and apparel, healthcare, and transportation industries over the year 2020. Owing to the nationwide lockdown, the production process of various goods in these industries declined due to the non-functioning of the manufacturing plants. Globally, the textile and apparel industry is badly hit. The domestic sales and export of various textile products has also witnessed a halt during the COVID-19 outbreak. Thus, affecting the overall growth of the synthetic fabric market. Business communities even faced several issues related to manpower shortage, supply chain disturbance, and many more. However, rising demand for healthcare products emerged as a driving factor for synthetic fabrics with the increase in production of PPE, masks, and others, during these tough times.
Synthetic Fabric Market Segment Analysis By Type
The polyester fabric segment held the largest share in the synthetic fabric market in 2020. Globally, polyester is one of the most widely used synthetic fabrics. Polyester’s rising use in clothes lowers production costs and raises affordability, while also improving shrinkage, durability, and wrinkling properties when blended with commonly used natural materials. Since polyester fabric is resistant to environmental conditions thus it remains a widely used and heavily produced fabric worldwide. Increasing use of polyester fabric in the apparel, homeware, and industrial applications for the production of shirts, suits, bath towels, pillows, films, and others, is anticipated to drive the growth of the synthetic fabric industry.

Synthetic Fabric Market Drivers
Increasing Demand for Economical Fabrics
Polyester fabric has resulted in a very useful and easy to wear and purchase fabric, with low cost. It has numerous qualities which attract its usage in various end-use industries. It is recyclable, adaptable, and blendable along with other fabrics such as spandex or lycra fabric and cotton fabric as per the requirements. Similarly, acrylic fabric is also used as a cost-cutting measure with its blendable property with other natural fabrics such as cotton and wool. Acrylic fabric is soft to the touch, light-weight, and warm. Expanding acrylic fabrics, like other synthetic materials, is required to generate a useable final textile; stretching acrylic fibers renders them several times their original length, lowering costs, and increasing production efficiency. It is even used as a substitute for wool. Thus, the rising demand for economical fabrics such as polyester and acrylic owing to their alluring properties is estimated to drive the growth of the market.
High Growth Rate of Transportation Industry
With the rise in the countrys economy, the production and demand for transportation also increase. The transportation industry majorly includes aerospace, marine, automotive, and others. In these transportation sectors, synthetic fabrics are increasingly being used in applications such as seat covers, belts, and others. Also, the rising demand for synthetic fibers such as polybenzimidazole fiber in the aircraft walls fabrics, and other fabrics has uplifted the demand for synthetic fabric. In recent years, the rising production of transport such as aircraft and automotive has contributed towards the positive growth of the market. For instance, according to Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA), in Austria, motor vehicle production increased from 1,64,900 units in 2018 to 1,79,400 units in the year 2019. Similarly, in Vietnam, the production of motor vehicles increased from 2,37,000 units in 2018 to 2,50,000 units in the year 2019. With the increasing production of automobiles, it is estimated that the demand for seat covers and belts will also rise, which would further drive the growth of the synthetic fabric industry in the forecast period.
Synthetic Fabric Market Challenges
Rising Environmental Effects Will Hamper the Market Growth
Negative impacts of synthetic fabrics such as polyester on the environment are more general. From its production to its disposal, the polyester fabric has unfortunate environmental impacts at every stage of its use cycle. Similarly, polyvinyl chloride has the same impact on the environment. The material is neither biodegradable nor degradable, for decades. PVC-based products sustain their forms. The only breakdown that occurs is granulation, which possibly chokes the intestinal tract of animals upon their consumption, leading to their deaths. Moreover, environmental scientists have raised concerns about the pollution caused by synthetic fabrics such as polyester and polyvinyl chloride since it takes centuries to break down completely. Thus, increasing environmental effects with the rising usage of synthetic fabrics such as polyester and polyvinyl chloride will create hurdles for the growth of the market.
Synthetic Fabric Market Landscape
Technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the synthetic fabric market. Major players in the synthetic fabric market are DUPont, Indorama Corporation, Asahi Kasei Fibers Corporation, Reliance Industries Limited, Skycorp Company, Lenzing AG, Mitsubishi Chemical Holding Corp., Adidas, Teijing Ltd., Toray Chemical Korea, Inc., Toyobo Co., Ltd., and others.
In January 2020, Adidas company announced that it will launch new fabrics made from recycled polyester and marine plastic waste and expand product lines that use them. By 2024, Adidas plans to recycle 100% of polyester fabrics used by them.
Asia-Pacific region dominates the synthetic fabric market owing to the increasing investments in the textile and apparel industry. For instance, according to Invest India, till March 2021, FDI in the textiles and apparel industry has increased up to US$3.75 bn.
Increasing demand for seat covers and belts with an increase in production of various transports such as automotive and aircraft is estimated to drive the growth of the synthetic fabric market.
Growing demand for hygiene products along with rising government investment promotion schemes will act as a key factor driving the growth of the synthetic fabric industry in the upcoming years.
However, rising environmental effects due to the excessive use of synthetic fabrics such as polyester and polyvinyl chloride can hinder the growth of the synthetic fabric market.
