Polymer Coated Fabrics Market

Polymer Coated Fabrics Market by Product (Polyvinyl, Polyurethane, Polyethylene), Application (Transportation, Protective Clothing, Industrial, Awning, Roofing & Canopies, Furniture & Seating) - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: CH 4785 Dec, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[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.

Polymer Coated Fabrics Market

Polyurethane coated fabrics to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period

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.

Transportation is projected to be the largest application of polymer coated fabrics during the forecast period.

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.

Polymer Coated Fabrics Market

APAC to account for the largest share of the global polymer coated fabrics market during the forecast period

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.
