Textile Coatings Market Overview

The textile coating is defined as the process of depositing a polymeric resin over a textile substrate on single or both sides. Textile coating produces a new structure, which acquires properties of the substrate and the coating product. Furthermore, it shields the materials from various environmental factors such as heat, dust, soil, water, oil, and grease. Therefore, it increases the functionality and durability of the final product. It imparts properties such as fire retardation, anti-abrasion, anti-bacterial, thermal insulation as well as modify the overall appearance of the final product. Various types of resins such as PVC, PU, polyester, acrylics, SBR, natural rubber, silicon, and fluoropolymers are used to coat the textile substrate in textile coatings to make a wide range of product for different applications. However, PVC textile coating is considered toxic for both human and the environment, and therefore many manufacturers have adopted PU as a replacement to PVC.

The growth of the clothing industry across the globe is expected to fuel the demand for the textile coatings during the forecast period. Rising quality standards in developed economies and growing purchasing power & lifestyle changes in developing countries are the factors contributing to the growth of the clothing industry. Additionally, textile coatings are used to make automotive upholstery for cars, bus, trains, trucks, and two-wheelers, and airbag fabrics. Thus, Europe and Asia Pacific with the strongest automotive industry base is expected to ensure the stable revenue source for the Textile Coatings Market during the forecast period. Textiles coatings are also used in hoardings & signage, scaffolding nets, canopies & awnings, architectural membranes, conveyor belts, safety vests for construction workers. Therefore, it is likely to show high demand from building & construction industry across the globe. Textile coatings are further used in home furnishing industry to make curtains, carpets backings, sofa covers, and pillow & cushion covers.

High revenue expenditure on home furnishing items in developed regions, rising disposable income, and improving standard of living in developing regions are expected to create huge home furnishing market in the coming years,  expected to affect the Textile Coatings Market positively over the forecast period.   Textile coatings finds wide applications in healthcare industry for manufacturing equipment’s such extracorporeal devices, implants, and medical gloves, thus expected to drive high demand from the healthcare sector during the assessment period. Textile coatings are further used in agricultural industry for fencing, coverings for crop protection, bags, and shading materials. Textile coatings also have applications in geotextiles for soil waterproofing in landfills.


Rising environmental concerns regarding the adverse effect of polymers used in textile coatings may pose a challenge to the market growth. Severe environmental regulations by IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), ETS (Emission Trading System) are projected to hamper the growth of the Textile Coatings Market.
