Global Polyester Strap For Manual Grade Market

PET strapping is made of polyester and can easily compete with steel in terms of strength. It withstands very high breaking loads and is extremely tear-resistant. Unlike steel strapping, it is easier to work with and does not rust, which means that it defies all weather conditions and leaves no marks on your goods. During the strapping process, straps are placed around the goods and tightened with the help of a strapping tool or strapping machine.

Market Synopsis

Polyester Strap For Manual Grade Market Size was valued at USD 0.64 billion in 2021. The Polyester Strap for Manual Grade market industry is projected to grow from USD 0.69 Billion in 2022 to USD 1.29 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.15% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030). 

In the coming years, Rising usage of polyester straps for seatbelts is projected to drive the polyester straps market share in the automotive industry during the forecast period. Furthermore, polyester straps have replaced nylon webbing as safety equipment in racing cars due to its increased strength, and a lower rate of elongation under load. In addition to product safety, to overcome government regulations regarding safety, manufacturers are focusing on product innovation. The usage of seat belts is rising due to increasing safety concerns. This is likely to act as an opportunity for the polyester straps market over the forecast period. E.g., the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) has resulted in the installation of seat belts and other safety straps in automobiles. The aforementioned rules are expected to fuel the demand for polyester straps over the next decade.    

The global market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. as it is causing widespread concern and economic deprivation of industries and individuals all over the globe. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has impacted most of the packaging, automotive and many other end user industries worldwide, including the polyester strap for manual grade industry. During the pandemic, many industries were affected due to supply chain disruption and lockdown. This led to the shortage of raw materials used in a manufacturing PET. Also, many end-user industries shut down due to pandemics. That restricted the growth of the market. However, in 2022, the situation is coming on track, and now the market is stable and growing steadily.

By Type

  1. Composite Strapping: Composite Strapping is co-extruded Polyester Strapping. Polyester Composite Strapping is manufactured from high tenacity polyester yarns embedded in a polymer coating. During transportation, the Polyester Composite Strapping Belt can absorb shocks and impacts. It has a high retained tension and is a robust and safe alternative to steel strapping. Composite strapping is commonly used for goods that may expand, settle, or contract during transportation. Specially made for usage on rough environmental materials and sharp edges, the Polyester Composite Strap is optimised to secure the cargo. Composite polyester belts are frequently connected with a wire buckle, and the buckle closes when tension is applied to the strap. They require just a hand tensioning tool and light cutters, making them quicker and more convenient than steel belts. Using Polyester Composite Strapping leads to reduced environmental impact. Polyester is produced from raw resin materials throughout the manufacturing process. Polyester composite strapping helps environmentally conscious firms save a significant amount of net energy. The lightweight material of the polyester composite strap also helps to reduce overall load weights. Moving these products from one point to another saves space, time, and fuel. Polyester strapping is a recyclable material that may help you save money on packaging waste and disposal. These cost-cutting measures boost corporate profitability while also lowering environmental impact. This recycled material may subsequently produce post-consumer items, such as new straps, several times.

  2. Woven Strapping: Woven polyester strapping provides a high level of product strength and durability. Cross woven strands of polyester yarn are coated with cold glue to improve this strap’s rigidity and system strength. Woven strapping offers higher resistance to chafing and shearing where a small cut at the edge of the strap spreads across its width under tension so are suited to use with rough-edged consignments. It is typically used to secure medium to heavy items, providing good reliability to the product. Woven Polyester strapping is excellent at retaining any applied tension over a long period of time and is less susceptible to tension relaxation which can be caused by different variables such as ambient temperature. It also does not lose as much tension as steel strapping systems on loads that become compressed or contract. Woven polyester is a cost-effective and safer alternative to steel strapping, offering bi-directional strength and split-resistance for harsher environments and suitable for securing heavy loads. Woven Strapping is manufactured from high tenacity polyester yarns in a woven structure. Woven polyester strap is designed to replace and, in many ways, out-perform steel banding. It is both strong and gentle. It has a little elongation (stretch) combined with memory which then allows it to act like a big industrial rubber band during heavy impact. Woven strapping is stronger than any other type of strapping because it has more filaments woven together to increase strength. It also adds a hardener to the belt to make it hard enough for any industrial purpose. Woven Lashing is used for heavy loads to secure tied-up cargo and ensure that the goods will not be damaged during transportation.
