How is a Thriving Global Textile Industry Creating New Opportunities for Textile Coating Manufacturers?

The ubiquitous textile market is valued US$ 3 trillion, encompassing the production, refining, and sale of synthetic and natural fibers used in a variety of sectors, employing between 20Mn and 60Mn people, and contributing for 2% of global GDP. By 2020, the industry has crossed the US$ 1 billion mark.

Because of these promising tendencies, the demand for textile coatings is expected to skyrocket in the next years. Textile coatings have found new applications ranging from industrial apparel to medical hygiene items, driving important producers to create revolutionary product lines with greater strength and resilience.

Why are Thermoplastic Textile Coatings Considered the New Normal?

Thermoplastic polymers are polymers that become liquid when heated, allowing producers to form them into the necessary shapes, then soften and mould them again. The international textile coatings market was dominated by thermoplastics. Thermoplastics are the most extensively utilized coating material due to their exceptional qualities such as their lightweight nature, good insulating nature (both electrical and thermal), and so on.

PVC is a low-cost polymer that is resistant to oil, solvents, and abrasion. They also have outstanding fire-retardant qualities and are thus considered as a suitable polymer material in textile coating applications. Because of these qualities, thermoplastics are widely employed in a variety of end user sectors. As a result, demand for textile coatings is expected to rise throughout the forecast period.
