The Metal Fiber Market was valued at around USD 4.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 8.1% during the forecast period, 2019–2025.

Metal fiber is a manufactured fiber made from different type of coating processes such as plastic coated with metal, metal coated with plastic, moreover any fiber can be considered as a metal fiber if it has one of its composition is a metal although they can be differentiated from metal filaments on the basis of there diameter, usually the diameter for metal fibers lies in the range of 1µm to 100µm anything larger could be considered as a filament. Due to their properties such as high porosity, durability and cleanability they have a high contribution in filtration segment, and because of the features such as lightweight, high thermal and corrosion resistance, and good electric conductivity there is a surge in demand for the metal fiber in multiple industries. Lack of flexibility, rigidity, and high manufacturing cost can hamper market growth during the reviewed period.



Segmentation 

The global metal fiber market has been segmented into type, application, technology, end user, and region. By type, the global metal fiber market has been classified as nickel, aluminum, copper, iron, silver, and others. Aluminum held the largest market share in 2018, due to its high conductivity, thermal resistance, and being light weighted. By application, the global metal fiber market has been divided into filtration, ESD/EMI protection, hot glass manipulation, heating, or other specialties. Based on technology, the global metal fiber market has been split into bundle drawing, foil shaving, melt spinning, and machining. Bundle drawing is the most widely used process to produce metal fiber. Based on end user, the global metal fiber market has been segregated into automotive, textiles, plastic, glass, and others. The textile industry holds the largest market share of global metal fiber due to the use of metal fibers in different applications such as ESD/ EMI protection, heating, hot glass manipulation to produce handbags, footwear, home décor, etc. 

 

Regional Analysis 

North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa are the region analyzed under the scope of the market. North America held the largest share of the global metal fiber market in 2018 and is expected to dominate the market during the reviewed period as there is the high consumption of textile products such as carpets & upholstery fabrics, protective clothing, plastic compounds are leading to the increase in demand for metal fibers. Moreover, a developed automotive industry of the region producing metal fiber embedded brake pads, clutches, and car seat heating seat and hence increasing the overall demand for metal fiber in the regional market. The Europe region had the second-largest share in the global metal fiber market in 2018 and is expected to show a promising growth during the forecast period because metal fiber being used in thermal clothing for production of protective personal equipment’s (PPEs) which are majorly used in F&B and construction & mining sectors. Furthermore, the substantial presence of following sectors has fueled the overall growth of metal fiber in the regional market. The main drivers for the growth of metal fiber in the Asia-Pacific region are the growing industrialization in the countries such as India, China, and Japan, leading to the high demand for the metal fiber. Moreover, programs such as ‘Make in India’ which encourages policies like Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) has boosted the manufacturing and production segment of the region contributing to the overall growth of metal fiber in the regional market. The high manufacturing cost was accounted for the slow growth of metal fiber in Latin America. However, the region is relied upon to observe moderate development during the forecast period because of the rising industrialization in nations, for example, Brazil, Mexico, and Chile. The Middle East & Africa is expected to have a composed growth in the metal fiber market during the reviewed period attributed to the growing infrastructure and construction sector of the regional market.
