[282 Pages Report] The polymer coated fabrics market size is projected to reach USD 20.1 billion by 2024 from USD 16.3 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 4.3%. The rising safety measures in the transportation application and stringent regulatory requirements for workers’ safety are expected to drive the polymer coated fabrics market. However, the availability of substitutes and environmental concerns are hampering the growth of this market.
Based on polymer type, the polymer coated fabrics market has been segmented into polyvinyl, polyurethane, polyethylene, and others. The polyurethane coated fabrics segment is estimated to register the highest growth in, terms of value and volume, of the global polymer coated fabrics market. PU coated fabrics have better properties such as transparency, elasticity, and resistance to oil, grease, and abrasion. They are especially preferred if there is a requirement for unusual impact and abrasion resistance. They are primarily used for applications such as rainwear, waterproof protective clothing, upholstery, luggage, footwear, glove, waterproof mattress cover, inflatable boats, and recreational items, among others Phosphites & phosphonites are among the most effective stabilizers, as they protect both primary antioxidants as well as the polymers during processing. Hydrolytically stable phosphites & phosphonites are generally the most frequently used polymer stabilizers.
The transportation segment is projected to lead the polymer coated fabrics market, in terms of value, during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the increasing use of polymer coated fabrics in various transportation applications. Polymer coated fabrics are majorly used for a wide range of automotive applications such as interior, exterior, airbags, seatbelt, and covers.
APAC is the largest polymer coated fabrics market, globally, due to massive industrial growth and rapid urbanization in key countries such as China and India. The increasing demand from the transportation, protective clothing, and industrial applications is driving the polymer coated fabrics market in APAC. China, Japan, and South Korea are the major countries driving the polymer coated fabrics market in APAC.
The key market players profiled in the report include as Continental AG (Germany), Spradling International Inc. (US), Seaman Corporation (US), Saint-Gobain SA (France), Trelleborg AB (Sweden), Sioen Industries NV (Belgium), Serge Ferrari Group (France), Low & Bonar Plc (UK), and OMNOVO Solutions Inc. (US).
Continental AG (Germany) is a leading manufacturer of polymer coated fabrics, globally. The company produces various polymer coated fabrics mainly used in transportation, protective clothing, and industrial applications. It has good depth and breadth in its product offering, catering to most specific requirements of its customers. The company has been focusing on the strategies of expansion and new product launch to maintain its leadership in the market. For instance, in March 2017, the company opened a new plant for polymer coated fabrics in Changshu, China. The new center is expected to better serve Chinese customers’ demands in different industries.
Trelleborg AB (Sweden) is another leading manufacturer of polymer coated fabrics. The company operates in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. It acquired Laminating Coating Technologies Inc. (Lamcotec) (US) in July 2018 as part of its strategy to strengthen its position in the US market. In February 2018, it also acquired Dartex Holdings (UK), a manufacturer of coated fabrics, primarily for the healthcare & medical industry. The acquired company is also a leading manufacturer of coated fabrics for pressure injury prevention. This acquisition is expected to broaden the company’s offering in the polymer coated fabrics market.

Top 25 major players covered
This report categorizes the global polymer coated fabrics market based on polymer type, application, and region.
What are the different types of polymer type and the most widely used type among them?
The different type of polymer types arevinyl coated fabrics, PU coated fabrics, PE coated fabrics, and others (acrylic, nylon 6, nylon 6-6, PA, PC, PEEK, PBT, and PET coated fabrics).Vinyl is the most used coating material in various applications due to its reduced cost, easy weldability, and availability of a wide range of colors.
What are the opportunities for the market?
High cost of using the recycled plastics and difficulty in managing the supply chain for post-consumer recycled plastic management is a big challenge for the market globally.
What are the factors supporting the growth of polymer coated fabrics market?
Factors such as surging demand from transportation, protective clothing, and industrial applications and increasing safety concerns and stringent government regulations for providing safety to workers are expected to augment the growth of the global polymer coated fabrics market.
What is the major restraint for polymer coated fabrics market?
The production of coated fabrics involves the use of solvents to adjust the viscosity of the coating material onto the fabric substrate. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that the principal source of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) is the use of solvents in the manufacturing process of coated fabrics. The use of solvents in the manufacturing process is a restraint for the market.
