Staple Fibers Market By Type (Cellulosic, Cotton, Polyester), By Application (Automotive, Apparel, Construction, Home Furnishing, Personal Care & Hygiene) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Published: Dec 2017 | Report Code: 58898-12-17

Staple fibers refer to cellulosic, natural or synthetic fibers having variable lengths and are available in a comprehensive variety of compositions. Staple fibers are prepared either from flax, wool, hemp or raw cotton out of which wool and cotton are the most widely used materials. Staple fibers are also manufactured using other raw materials including alpaca, angora and mohair. Filament fibers are spun into shorter lengths using varied blends of natural fibers or a special type of fiber. Staple fibers have diverse applications ranging from apparel and automotive to home furnishing, construction, personal care & hygiene and filtration among others.

Staple fibers are utilized in the wide variety of end use applications such as construction, clothing, rug-making, needle crafting and weaving. The Staple fiber yarns are considered best for the manufacture of coats, blankets, wraps and rug threads. The demand for carpets is increasing across the globe due to increasing consumer spending and rise in demand for dust binding materials. Hence, the rapid growth of carpet market is projected to augment the demand for staple fibers over the forecast period. Additionally, staple fibers are widely used in the blanket manufacturing. Thus, due to declining temperatures especially across colder regions of the globe, a significant rise in the demand for blankets and winter clothing has accelerated the overall growth of the global staple fibers market over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing demand for light weight garments and rising demand for cost effective synthetic fibers are some other key factors driving the global staple fibers market.

However, fluctuation in raw material prices coupled with strict governmental norms regarding the use of harmful synthetic fibers especially for clothing and home furnishing purposes might hamper the market growth.

By type, polyester segment accounts for the largest share in the global staple fibers market. The market is witnessing growth on account of surge in demand for light weight staple fibers especially in construction and automotive industries. Moreover, rising per capita disposable incomes, rapid urbanization and rise in consumer expenditure are anticipated to bring impetus in the demand for staple fibers over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific staple fibers market is expected to tender numerous opportunities in the foreseeable years due to increasing demand for staple fibers from home furnishing and apparel applications. Moreover, changing lifestyles of consumers especially in India and China is driving the overall demand. The market for staple fibers in North America is primarily driven by increasing demand for sustainable and recycled clothing coupled with increasing use of synthetic carpets especially in colder provinces of Canada. Increasing demand for recycled fibers is a key growth driver in the global staple fibers market. Consumers are more inclined towards the use of sustainable textiles, which are generally manufactures using recycled materials. Thus, rising awareness about environmental protection is a key aspect augmenting the demand for sustainable fibers. Also, high availability of sustainable and ecological clothing in a broad range of bright colors, stylish designs and eye-catching prints is further complementing the overall demand.
