The Global "Coated Fabrics Market" is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
A Coated Fabric is a fabric that has been treated to make them longer-lasting, stronger, and more weather resistant. Rather than interweaving a strengthening fiber directly into the fabric, these fabrics are coated with a substance that makes the fabrics’ surface more impervious to damage. The most common coating is polyethylene, the most basic plastic compound, which has proven its durability through its use in the packing industry. By application, the coated fabrics market is segmented into furniture & seating, industrial, protective clothing, roofing & canopies, transportation, and others. Others include awnings.
Speed industrialization in developing nations and increasing safety actions and measures in the transportation segment are the major driving factors for the growth of the market. As industrial workers' incomes rise globally, markets for consumer goods and services of all kinds tend to expand and provide a further stimulus to industrial investment and economic growth which in turn acts as a major factor for the growth of the coated fabrics market. The USMCA represents a demonstrative improvement for U.S. manufacturers of component parts such as thread, pocketing, narrow elastics, and coated fabrics. For instance, The United States is especially well-positioned globally in fiber, yarn, fabric, and non-apparel sewn products markets; it was the world’s 2nd largest individual country exporter of those products in 2018. These items will have stronger that will certainly boost sales to North American customers which acts as key factors for the market growth.
Easy availability of substitutes and environmental issues are the restraints hampering the market growth worldwide.
