Market Insights

Staple fibers refer to cellulosic, natural, or synthetic fibers having variable lengths and being available in a comprehensive variety of compositions. Staple fibers are prepared either from flax, wool, hemp, or raw cotton, 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 a 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 a rise in demand for dust-binding materials. Hence, the rapid growth of the carpet market is projected to augment the demand for staple fibers over the forecast period. Additionally, staple fibers are widely used in 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 fiber market.

However, fluctuations 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 market growth.

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

The Asia Pacific staple fibers market is expected to present numerous opportunities in the foreseeable future due to increasing demand for staple fibers from home furnishings and apparel applications. Furthermore, changing consumer lifestyles, particularly in India and China, are driving overall demand. The market for staple fibers in North America is primarily driven by the increasing demand for sustainable and recycled clothing coupled with the increasing use of synthetic carpets, especially in the 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 manufactured using recycled materials. As a result, rising environmental awareness is a key factor driving demand for sustainable fibers. Also, the 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.

The global market for staple fibers can be classified into the following types:

  • Cellulosic
  • Cotton
  • Polyester
  • Others

Polyester was the dominant segment in the global staple fibres market in 2016 and is expected to uphold its dominance throughout the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. This is due to the high demand for light-weight and cheaper fibers. Increasing demand for polyester staple fibers in several specialized end-use applications, such as carpet manufacturing and automotive upholstery, is anticipated to bolster the market during the forecast period. Polyester staple fibers have emerged as the fastest-growing segment owing to their low cost of manufacturing and high demand from automotive applications. Additionally, owing to the superior finish and good resilience properties of polyester staple fibers, as well as rising demand from geotextile applications, this is accelerating the demand for polyester staple fibers since it is beneficial in making geosynthetic clay liners, geonets, and geotextile tubes. Moreover, increasing demand for polyester staple fibers in the manufacture of non-woven carpets and as a polyfill for stuffing soft toys, quilts, and pillows is further driving the overall growth. Various characteristic properties of polyester staple fibers, such as aesthetics, durability, and recyclability, are further accelerating the demand across the globe. The cotton segment accounted for the second-largest share in the global market owing to increasing applications of cotton staple fibres in the preparation of cushions, soft toys, and mattresses. Furthermore, rising demand for staple fibers, especially from construction and filtration applications, is projected to bolster the overall demand over the forecast period.

The global staple fibers market can be categorized on the basis of application:

  • Automotive
  • Apparel
  • Construction
  • Home Furnishing
  • Personal Care and Hygiene
  • Others (filtration, pharmaceutical, etc.)

By application, apparel accounted for the largest share in the global staple fibres market in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The market is mainly driven by the durability and resilience of staple fibers and their exceptional light-weight properties. Staple fibers are widely used in making shirts, denims, trousers, and dress materials. An increase in demand for sustainable fibers, coupled with rapid urbanization and increasing consumer spending on light-weight and efficient fabrics, further boosts the overall growth. The home furnishings segment is expected to grow at a noteworthy CAGR owing to an increase in demand for non-woven carpets as well as increasing usage of polyester staple fibres in stuffing pillows, cushions, and quilts, especially in Asian and European countries.

Moreover, increasing demand for recycled fibres and rapidly changing apparel sourcing trends, especially in the Asia Pacific region, are some other key factors anticipated to boost the overall demand for staple fibres over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising demand for light weight fabrics from the automotive industry, as well as increased use of staple fibres in the manufacture of soft tissues and wipes in the personal care industry, are expected to drive overall demand.

The global market for staple fibers can be divided into the following regions and countries:
