Coated Fabrics Market Trends



  • Increased Demand for Protective Clothing to Drive Market Growth


The market CAGR for coated fabrics is being driven by an increase in demand for protective clothing. Protection against hazardous biological and chemical materials is required in the workplace and can be obtained through the selection of appropriate protective clothing. Rapid industrialization as a result of heavy investments in the manufacturing industry, combined with stringent government regulations imposed by OSHA and NIOSH regarding the use of protective gears, will drive the overall protective clothing market demand. Polyurethane-coated fabric can be used to make high altitude protective clothing, fire retardant clothing, and chemical protective clothing due to properties such as flexibility at low temperatures, resistance to high impact, and resistance to high weather (CPC). As a result, the overall coated fabric market growth in the protective clothing industry is expected to accelerate.


Chemical protective clothing (CPC) is used to protect workers from physical and chemical hazards. It is also used to protect the entire body from poisonous chemicals that manifest their effects through skin absorption. The long-lasting PC is made of rubber or PVC-coated fabrics, which usually prevent chemical permeation and penetration through fabrics in clothing. Fire retardant fabrics are classified into two types: those made of naturally flame retardant fibres and those made of 100% cotton with a flame retardant coating.


Additionally, automotive coated fabric is used in automobiles to improve the appearance and feel of the interior. Resins, PVC, rubber, lacquer, plastics, and oil or varnish finishes are among the materials used to coat or process the fabric. Anti-corrosive, water-resistant, UV resistant, rot-proof, and oil-repellent automotive coated fabric is used in vehicles.


OMNOVA is a global supplier of high-performance coated fabric to automotive OEMs. Most automakers use OMNAVA coated fabric upholsteries because of their impressive design, environmental features, low emissions, appearance, long-lasting performance, and excellent touch.


Moreover, the rise in per capita disposable income, combined with rising global automotive production, may drive demand for polymer coated fabric, which is primarily used in automotive soft tops, seat covers, upholstery, light vehicle interiors, and airbags. Companies are developing recyclable coated fabric for airbags, which will drive the automotive industry forward. Toyobo, for example, created a recyclable coated fabric for airbags. The product is applied to a nylon polymer to replace the silicone polymer used in side curtain airbags.


Coated Fabrics Market Segment Insights


Coated Fabrics Type Insights


The Coated Fabrics Market segmentation, based on type includes polymer coated, rubber coated, fabric backed. The market is dominated by polymer coated fabrics. These are man-made materials with polymer coatings on their surfaces such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyurethane. Polyurethane (PU) coated fabrics are used for protective gear, footwear, rainwear, gloves, inflatable boats, and waterproof mattress covers because of its elasticity, abrasion resistance, grease and oil resistance, and transparency. This is due to the characteristics of polyurethane (PU). They are widely used in the transportation and automotive industries, specifically in the production of exterior, interior, and cover components, as well as seatbelts and airbags.
