Specialty Fibers Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Global Specialty Fibers demand stood at 4.52 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 8.42 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 6.62% until 2030. The anticipated growth in the Specialty Fibers market is attributed to increasing demand for composite compounds with lightweight and high strength properties across various end-user industries such as transportation, aerospace, marine, and others. The increasing demand for specialty fiber owing to its superior properties including high durability, etc., as compared to conventionally used natural fiber worldwide is the major driver for the forecast period.
There has been an exponential increase in the overall consumption of Specialty Fibers for the manufacturing of various fiber products following changing consumer preferences and fashion trends such as waterproof, stretchability, and other parameters in the textile industry. In addition, inadequate supply, and availability of natural fibers such as cotton also drive the demand for Specialty Fibers globally. This Specialty fibers market growth is also driven by magnificent growth observed in the demand for carbon fibers, one of the most significant Specialty Fiber used in aerospace and aircraft Types owing to its lightweight, strong, and stiff nature and hence can be used as a good substitute for steel across these industries.
 In addition, increasing industrialization and construction activities following the rise in disposable income globally further augment the Specialty Fiber consumption which is added to foremost construction material viz., concrete and paints to ensure proper sticking of the respective compounds as well as provide fire resistance and resistance to various other environmental hazards.
In 2020, the outspread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe, put a significant halt in the growth curve of Specialty Fiber total global demand, backed by numerous restrictions imposed by the government of various developing nations like India, China, the USA, and others to contain the life-threatening disease spread. Manufacturing units were temporarily shut down and the disruption in the supply chain was observed. Shortage of raw materials coupled with trade restrictions impacted the market adversely. However, the overall global Specialty Fibers demand is anticipated to recover in the forecast period owing to the resumption in the construction activities post the upliftment of restrictions imposed in operations across several regions to contain the COVID-19 spread.
