Acrylic Fiber Market Trends



  • Growing apparel industry needs are driving the market growth


The rising apparel industry drives the market CAGR for acrylic fiber. The increased use of acrylic fibers in blended textiles and other fibers like Wool and cotton is likely to drive industry revenue growth. Blending increases the durability, endurance, and absorption of the finished fabric. Mixing Wool with acrylic fibers, for example, increases the flexibility and resilience of the finished product. Acrylic-blend Wool is stain-resistant and simple to clean. Acrylic fibers additionally soften and strengthen the yarn. As a result, the rising usage of acrylic fibers in mixed textiles is expected to influence the market's expansion throughout the projected timeframe. The increased integration rate of acrylic fiber in upholsteries for various pieces of furniture is expected to climb as people can purchase furnishings for their home items, hence supporting the Acrylic Fiber Industry.


Additionally, manufacturing capacity expansion is expected to help the worldwide market develop. The improvement in the resilience and craftsmanship of acrylic fibers will give enterprises more chances to target hitherto unexplored markets. Acrylic fibers are commonly utilized as a basic fabric in the furnishings and textile industries. The rising demand for furnishings and textiles is a significant driving force for the acrylic fiber industry. Because of the convenience of browsing items and the accessibility of goods, online shopping for furnishings and textiles is growing. This was pushed further by the Covid-19 epidemic, when stay-at-home lifestyle and social isolation became normal norms, resulting in a surge in e-commerce sales of furniture and textiles.


As with other sectors in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the growth of acrylic fiber manufacturing in multiple-use areas. Limits on movement and interruptions in supply chains are expected to take some time to recover from. In addition, the fear is expected to fade considerably in 2021 with the vaccine's introduction. The Post Covid scenario will ease the market restriction and allow businesses to resume operations, boosting the market further.


For instance, as per the India Brand Equity Foundation, online shopping in India is projected to account for 37% of the retail market by 2030, with furnishings and textiles accounting for 4% of the overall market in 2020. Greater demand for sustainable furnishings and flexible workplaces has increased industry expenditure. Therefore, it is anticipated that demand for Acrylic Fiber will increase throughout the projection period due to the rising apparel industry needs. Thus, driving the Acrylic Fiber market revenue.
