Synthetic Fibers Market Report: Future Opportunities and Key Strategies Adopted by Key Players


Currently, Asia-Pacific dominates the synthetic fiber market, a situation that will remain the same in the years to come. Indeed, the region is home to many of the world’s largest apparel producers, including India, China, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Hong Kong.

In recent years, customers have shifted from natural fibers to synthetic or man-made fibers due to the cost effectiveness, wider application base and abundant availability of the latter. Additionally, the superior strength, elasticity and wear resistance of synthetic fibers make them more desirable than natural variants. Since synthetic fibers are not dependent on favorable agricultural products and temperature ranges, which are inconsistent due to global warming, their production will not be hampered by changing agricultural patterns and weather conditions.

Acrylic, polyester, polyolefin and nylon are the different types of synthetic fibers produced in contemporary times. In recent years, the consumption of polyester fibers has increased dramatically in heavy industrial applications, such as conveyor belts, due to their high strength and elasticity, low cost and recyclability. Thus, the growing consumption of polyester will help synthetic fiber market to thrive from 2021 to 2030. According to P&S Intelligence, the market generated approximately $60.0 billion in revenue in 2020.
