The Global Synthetic Fiber market was valued at USD xx million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD xx million by 2025, at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025. Synthetic fibers are human-made fibers, which are synthesized from chemicals and have superior qualities as compared to natural fibers. They are more durable and are easy to dye.

Compared to natural fibers, many synthetic fibers are more water resistant and stain re-sistant. Synthetic fibers account for about 64% share within the world fiber market.

Drivers & Restraints

Rapid industrialization, low production cost, changing consumer preferences for textiles, and increasing disposable income are projected to drive the global synthetic fiber market over the next few years. Weak supply and the high cost of natural fibers such as cotton and wool is another factor driving the global synthetic fiber market.

The non-biodegradability of synthetic fibers can restraint the growth of the market. Also, synthetic fibers are not so skin friendly, which makes them uncomfortable for prolonged wearing. Some people are allergenic to synthetic fibers. Thus, the above factors can be a potential threat to the global synthetic fiber market growth.

Segment Analysis

The Global Synthetic Fiber Market report segments the market by type and applications. By type, the segment includes Polyester, Rayon, Nylon, Polyolefin, and Others. Polyester is the most used fiber among all. These fibers are extensively used in apparel and home furnish-ings, from shirts and pants to jackets and hats, bed sheets, blankets, upholstered furniture and computer mouse mats. Industrial polyester fibers are used in car tire reinforcements, fabrics for conveyor belts, safety belts, coated fabrics and plastic reinforcements with high-energy absorption. Polyester fiber is used as cushioning and insulating material in pillows, comforters and upholstery padding. Because of the extensive use of polyester fibers in vari-ous industries, it is the most in-demand synthetic fiber.

Based on the Application of the synthetic fibers, the market has been segmented as Apparel, Home Furnishing, Industrial Use, and Others.
