According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Specialty Fibers Market is accounted for 5.05 million tons in 2022 and is expected to reach 7.41 million tons by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. Specialty fibers can be defined as those fibers that do NOT comply with single-mode and multimode communication fiber standards. Specialty fibers are optimized for applications other than signal transmission, such as amplifiers, sensors, lasers, filters, ring resonators, etc. To serve such varied applications, there are hundreds of different specialty fiber types, with many variations in glass composition, core and cladding structures, geometric properties, coatings, and specially tailored optical performance characteristics.

The core Segment Fibers accounted for 90.1 per cent of consolidated sales. The smaller Segment Plastics Products generated 7.6 per cent, the Segment Engineering 2.2 per cent and others accounted for 0.1 per cent (based on external sales). Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) announced its plans to increase its production capacity to 600,000 metric ton to meet the strong growth potential of viscose staple fiber and strengthen its market position in Indonesia and export markets across the region. The additional capacity will be achieved through improved optimization and efficiencies and by adding a 300,000-metric-ton viscose production facility in Pangkalan Kerinci, where the company is co-located with the sister company and fiber supplier APRIL Group.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Increasing Adoption of Sustainable Products

Textile producers and distributors are increasingly grateful to transport textiles that are sustainably manufactured and free of harmful chemicals due to stress from governments, non-governmental agencies. Huge brands and merchants are requesting that their suppliers verify the items long-term sustainability. For such purposes, restricted substance lists (RSLs) are created, which banned chemicals and their greatest values.

Restraint:

Fluctuations in Raw Material Prices

The costs of raw materials and energy utilized in the production of fabrics are highly fluctuating. These resources prices have a direct impact on the value chain units that include procurement and functioning prices. Manufacturer's profit limitations are affected by unexpected fluctuations. The final price is prejudiced by raw material prices and accessibility.

Opportunity:

High strength

CFRP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymers) composites, in spite of their light weight, advanced strength and greater resistance per unit weight of CFRP composite than glass fiber composites.

Threat:

Conductivity

Carbon fibers are particularly conductive, while glass fibers are insulated. Many products use fiber glass as an alternative of carbon fiber or metal because they need strict filling. In the creation of utilities, several commodities involve the use of fiber glass.

COVID-19 Impact

The textile sector has impacted in numerous countries since the global lockdown imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The supply chains, logistic procedures, and workforce accessibility have decreased, causing the polyarylate market operations to be moderately affected. During the COVID-19, the fiber market qualified a sharp decline, both in capacity and in quantity. This is due to the strong closures that have been placed in different parts of the world, which has led to disruption of the supply chain and production performance. In addition, declining production at end-of-life industries, such as automotive, and passenger car sales also had an impact on the market for synthetic fiber by 2021.

The Polybenzimidazole (PBI) fibers segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Polybenzimidazole (PBI) fibers segment is expected to record the highest share during the forecast period and due to better-quality properties obtainable by the product, such as high glass changeover temperature, negative melting point, and enormously high heat deflection temperature. PBI fibers are discovering applications in numerous products including heat and safety garments. PBI fibers are widely used for several applications with other high-performance fibers like Kevlar. They are used in plastic reinforcements, for chemical and heat opposing filters, and as well for some civil engineering applications.

The aerospace segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The aerospace segment led the market and expected to record a stable CAGR during the forecast period. As the industry is shifting in the direction of lightweight materials in a challenge to get better with cost-efficiency, this segment is having the major growth. Hence, high-strength, lightweight, and fiber-reinforced composite materials are very important to the aircraft manufacturing industry. Lightweight materials and structures provide an essential advantage in aerospace applications since it offers high strength and hardness at a condensed weight, considerably reducing the fuel consumption.

Region with highest share:

The region of Asia Pacific led the market and expected to grow at a highest share over the forecast period due to the rise in demand for fiber-reinforced composite materials in the automotive, electronics, as well as construction sectors. As well, the manufactured goods development, accessibility of raw materials at reasonable prices, and setting up of manufacturing facilities by market leaders are anticipated to drive the market.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit higher CAGR during the forecast period, owing to improved technological advancements owing to their large scale adoption in IT & telecommunication, administrative sector and increase in growth of general economy. Governments of developed countries are seriously investing to improve their security infrastructures on individual and country levels. The Asia-Pacific region is one of the prime markets for elevated performance fibers. This region is a major consumer of high performance fibers, to meet this growing demand for high performance fibers from different countries of the Asia-Pacific region.
