Fiber Intermediates Market Overview

Fiber Intermediates Market Size was valued at USD 7.23 Million in 2022. The Fiber Intermediates industry is projected to grow from USD 7.8 Million in 2023 to USD 15.8 Million by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.20 % during the forecast period (2023 - 2032).

The demand for fiber intermediates is driven by its increasing use in the manufacturing of synthetic fiber such as polyester and nylon, disinfectants, fabrics, and plastic, among others. Some of the commonly used fiber intermediates include paraxylene, acrylonitrile, ethylene glycol, purified terephthalic acid, and ethylene oxide. Fiber intermediates find application in numerous end-use industries such as textiles, plastics, petrochemicals, and cleaning products (detergents).

The fiber intermediates market is likely to grow on account of the increasing demand for polyester in various applications such as clothing, furniture, and upholstery. The expanding textiles industry, as a result of increased spending on clothing coupled with changing fashion trends, is likely to propel the growth of the fiber intermediates market. Additionally, the growing furnishing industry with the rising demand for multifunctional and luxurious furniture is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to players in the fiber intermediates market.

The consumption of fiber intermediates such as ethylene glycol is increasing in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin and PET film on account of the increasing demand for PET bottles and beverage containers as they are effective barriers to carbon dioxide and have a high tensile strength. The expanding packaging industry, as a result of increased consumption of packaged food products and beverages owing to convenience and improved product shelf life, is likely to fuel the demand for fiber intermediates. Anti-freeze, detergents, paints, and resins are some of the other applications of fiber intermediates.

At JEC World 2024, Thermolysis introduces completely recyclable goods made from recycled carbon fiber. launched the RCF brand, a sustainable project dedicated to full recycling, with the aim of achieving zero waste. Thermolysis is committed to creating a line of goods that can be fully recycled, using recycled materials as a basis, in order to refute the myth that composite materials cannot be recycled. They are happy to announce the launch of "RCF," a green brand that is socially conscious. This company uses thermolysis to recycle carbon fiber to create a variety of everyday essentials and bicycle accessories.
