Textile Coatings Market Trends

  • Market developments due to textile production technology innovations

Textile technology is a branch of textile engineering concerned with the design, manufacture, and application of textiles. It embraces a wide range of material sciences, including chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering. Another priority of textile engineers is to design and execute visually appealing and tactile fabric structures. Textiles have evolved as a technology as a result of advances in knowledge and science. Previously, it was limited to manually tying fibers together, but modern techniques such as 3D printing are now included. Nanotechnology, knitting machines, 3D printers, phase change materials, automation, and robotics are some of the significant advancements in the textiles industry. Nanotechnology is being used to create new fabrics that are more breathable, stronger, and lighter. These novel textiles can be used in place of more traditional synthetic materials such as nylon or polyester. They can also be incorporated into current fabrics like cotton and wool to give them special qualities. Nanofibers, or extremely small particles less than a thousandth of a millimeter across, or approximately 100 times smaller than the width of a human hair, are used to make nanotextiles.

The market is expanding due to increased demand for industrial knitting equipment from the garment industry. The apparel industry uses such machinery to make loop stitch coats, cardigans, huge shawls, scarves, and other items. Even though 3D printing fabrics is a niche market, there are several significant advantages to creating textiles using these techniques. The textile industry has a significant environmental impact because it consumes a lot of water and material resources. With the help of 3D textile printing, the number of resources required to make textiles for purposes such as clothing and furniture could be drastically reduced. Another opportunity for the textile industry is the rise of smart fabrics, which use phase change materials. The addition of PCM microcapsules improves the thermal performance of textile structures. When phase change materials move from solid to liquid, they store energy that is released when they return to solid. As a result, Textile Coatings Market revenue expansion is anticipated to be fueled by market developments due to textile production technology innovations.

Textile Coatings Market Segment Insights

Textile Coatings Product Type Insights

The Textile Coatings Market segmentation, based on product type, includes thermoplastics and thermosets. The thermosets segment held the majority share in 2022 contributing to around ~36-40% with respect to the Textile Coatings Market revenue. Thermosets are substances that, after being cured just once, remain permanently solid. During the curing phase, the material's polymers cross-link to produce an unbreakable, irreversible connection. This implies that even at extremely high temperatures, thermosets will not melt.

Textile Coatings Coating Technology Insights

The Textile Coatings Market data has been bifurcated by coating technology largely into traditional, calendar and extrusion coating, reverse roll coaters, and others. The traditional segment dominated the market in 2022. Under the traditional coatings, various methods such as direct coating, transfer coating, pad-dry-cure coating, foamed and crushed foam method, vapor deposition, electroplating, electroless plating, and wet chemical methods, among others are considered. In direct coating, also known as knife coating, the fabric is coated with a liquid while it is pulled taut beneath a floating knife blade; the coating's thickness depends on the distance between the two objects.

Textile Coatings End Use Insights

The Textile Coatings Market data has been bifurcated by end use largely transportation, building & construction, protective clothing, medical, and others. The transportation segment dominated the market in 2022. Textiles are used in the transportation industry across planes, trains, cars, and seagoing vessels. In automotive manufacturing, car seats, door panels, headrests, seat belts, dashboard pads, and seat covers are all made of textiles.

The North America textile coatings market accounted for a significant market share. This is attributed to the use of textiles in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, marine, building & construction, protective clothing, medical, and others. It is also commonly used in road building, rail ballast, temporary roads, bridges, culverts, reinforced walls, steep slip slopes, drain construction, and other fields. Owing mostly to widespread use in industrial apparel, notably in the construction sector. Construction apparel is largely used to protect workers from injuries and mishaps on the job. Furthermore, development is likely to gain pace in the sports and recreation sector, owing to increased participation in athletic events by notable sportsmen and sportspersons. Moreover, the increase in demand for waterproof, high-quality, and heat-resistant fabrics is the key factors in the region further fuel the growth of the market.

Europe accounts for the significant market share due to the increased technological expertise is extensive, use of textiles in the transportation industry, and increasing demand for protective clothing are driving the demand for textile coating in Europe. For instance, in February 2022, Elkem ASA (Norway) was awarded a funding for its silicone expansion plans in France, through the French government’s France Relance recovery plan. Moreover, the market for coated textiles and thermoplastics in Europe is expected to develop and increase at a high rate, in line with the broader technical textiles industry. Several variables that favorably impact the EU technical textiles sector are responsible for this expansion. Thus, the rapid growth in the building and construction industry and increasing government initiatives are likely to drive the growth of the textile coating market in this region.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to lead the global textile coating market over the forecast period. This is due to the diverse industrial applications ranging from building and construction, automotive, and others. Growing textile industry is anticipated to boost the demand for textile coating in India. Moreover, growing demand from the construction industry, medical, clothing home furnishing industry, and growing demand for protective textiles is expected to drive the market in the Asia-Pacific region, primarily in countries, such as China, India, and Japan. As China has the world’s largest construction industry. However, the growth rate of the industry has become increasingly modest, as the Chinese government is looking to shift toward a services-led economy.
