Global Elastomer Coated Fabric Market is projected to grow at 5% CAGR during the forecast period. Elastomer coated fabrics are produced as a result of the coating of polymeric materials on both sides of the fabric surface with the help of an adhesive agent. These fabrics are known for their unique properties such as adhesion, flexibility, and superior resistance to water, UV radiation, abrasion, dirt, and oil. Elastomer coated fabric, mainly silicone coated fabric, is usually used in automobile industries to produce airbags and protective covers, among others. These fabrics also have a variety of applications in various end-use industries such as construction, sports & leisure, and defense owing to their mechanical strength and flexibility. For instance, thermoplastic polyurethane is added to polyvinyl chloride in the preparation of poly blends to improve its abrasion resistance and low-temperature flexibility. The global market is expected to be driven by increased demand for elastomer coated fabrics in end-use industries, such as automobile and construction. This is primarily attributed to the increased use of silicone and thermoplastic polyurethane fabrics in the production of automotive body side moldings, interiors, instrument panels, seat covers, and drive belts on account of their properties such as abrasion resistance and flexibility. The surging demand for waterproof materials in the construction industry is likely to fuel the demand for elastomeric coated fibers in the coming years. In addition to this, the increasing consumption of rubber-coated fabrics in the production of power tools and sports goods such as sportswear, gymnasium mats, and tarpaulins is further boosting the demand for elastomer coated fabrics market globally. Furthermore, the increased use of elastomer coated fabrics in fabric coating industries coupled with innovative advancements in the production of synthetic elastomeric materials with superior properties are further creating lucrative opportunities for the players operating in elastomer coated fabrics market. However, the stringent regulations reuse of solvent in the production of elastomeric coated fabrics is likely to hamper its growth in the global market. Also, the readily available substitutes such as uncoated fabrics and leather that exhibit comparable performance characteristics are expected to pose a limitation to the elastomer coated fabric market.
The global elastomer coated fabrics market is analyzed for five major regions, namely– North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The market in Asia-Pacific dominates the global elastomer coated fabrics market and is projected to register highest the CAGR during the forecast period owing to the rapidly growing industrialization and constructional activities in the region. Additionally, the increased use of elastomeric coated fabrics in the transportation sector and the emerging economies of countries in Asia-Pacific is expected to drive the regional market demand. China is the largest consumer in the global elastomer coated fabrics market and is the fastest-growing market in the region owing to the increasing population and growing demand from the automotive industry for elastomer coated fabrics. Furthermore, India and other Southeast Asian countries are propelling market growth in the region. For instance, taking into consideration the issues related to car accidents, the Ministry of Road Transport of the Union of India approved the installation of compulsory airbags in all cars with effect from 01 July 2019. Thus, creating lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the elastomer coated fabric market in the region. North America accounted for a substantial market share in 2018. The growing demand for thermoplastic polyurethane-coated fabrics in construction applications coupled with the rising residential and commercial activities in the US is expected to drive the market. In addition, the use of elastomer coated fabrics in the production of awnings & canopies, rainwear, and protective coverings is further augmenting the demand in the region. Europe is also expected to register significant growth during the forecast period due to the extensive use of elastomer coated fabric in manufacturing automotive body side moldings, interiors, and components. Germany is the major contributor in the regional market on account of the presence of various automobiles components and automobile producers in the region. Latin America and the Middle East & Africa are expected to show substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing construction activities and growing per capita disposable income in the regions.
