The global industrial fabric market size is expected to grow from USD 108.3 billion in 2020 to USD 162.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Industrial fabric is extensively being used in the manufacturing of protective apparel for the chemical, sports, medical, and other end-use industries. The increasing demand for automotive vehicles supports the demand for industrial fabric in automotive carpet applications.
Filter media is one of the emerging major applications of industrial fabric in industries such as chemical, printing, refining and oil & gas. The excellent chemical resistance, high tensile strength, excellent thermal stability, and high melting point of industrial fabric, among other properties, are enabling its use in the filtration application. Companies have also realized the immense potential of industrial fabric in terms of their use as filter media. For instance, Toray offers a high-grade industrial fabric through its brand AXTAR, which is made of polyester fiber. The fabric offered by the company is being increasingly used in filter media.

Polyeaster fiber-baes industrial fabric comprise a major share of the industrial fabric market
The polyester resin-based industrial fabric s accounted for a larger share in the industrial fabric market. Polyester resins are less expensive and possess properties such as good corrosion resistance, fast curing, durability, tolerance to temperature, and low thermal expansion. The automotive industry is one of the major consumers of polyester industrial fabric as this fabric offers good UV and abrasion resistance, good tearing strength, and ease of cleaning. Toray, W. Barnet GmbH & Co. KG, and Johns Manville are some of the prominent polyester industrial fabric manufacturers.
The COVID-19 has resulted in reduced demand for vehicles in 2020. This has led to a temporary shutdown of various automobile manufacturing plants of Nissan, Volkswagen, and Ford. These factors are expected to reduce the demand for industrial fabric in automotive applications. Post-pandemic, the demand for polyester industrial fabric is expected to recover as industrial activities across the globe are expected to start, which will increase the consumption of polyester fabric.
The automotive carpet accounts for the largest market share in the global industrial fabric market
Automotive carpet is the largest application of industrial fabric. Polyester is a major fiber used in the production of automotive carpets. Industrial fabric offers excellent durability, high abrasion resistance, quick dyeing, and stain resistance. Some of the prominent automotive manufacturers such as Nissan, Toyota, and Lexus use automotive carpet manufactured by DowDuPont under the brand Sorona. The demand for industrial fabrics from automotive carpet applications is expected to decline in 2020 due to lower sales of new vehicles in the first half of 2020. Also, major manufacturers temporarily closed their plants during the lockdown. The demand is expected to recover after the COVID-19 pandemic is under control.
