“Monofilament Market”
Monofilament Market Information: By Type (Nylon, Polyester, Polyolefin), Application (Fishing & Agriculture, Medical, Textile, Automotive, Wastewater Treatment, Consumer Goods, And Others), Region: Forecast Till 2023

Monofilament, a single filament of synthetic fiber, is widely used in the nylon fishing line. It can be made using nylon, polyester, and polyolefins. Monofilaments are widely preferred in fishing lines instead of multifilaments owing to flexibility, good shock strength, and cost-effectiveness. The product finds use in fishing & agriculture net, ropes, fabric, paper mill filters, textile conveyor belts, medical devices, wastewater treatment, stretched tapes, and sports strings among others.

The global monofilament market growth is driven by the growing fishing industry as it provides both protein and source of income. Expanding fish and other seafood production in both developed and developing nations as a result of increased spending on animal food for protein is the major driving factor for the global monofilament market.  However, loss of marine habitats due to eutrophication, shipping, and coastal area development is projected to hamper the market growth in the upcoming years.

Expanding apparel & textile industry coupled with changing fashion trends and rising disposable income of the consumers is fuelling the product demand. Presence of major textile players in India and China such a Bombay Dyeing and Manufacturing Company Ltd and Raymond Ltd among others are uplifting the market growth.

Escalating medical industry as a result of increased spending on healthcare coupled with rising geriatric population and high per capita income in both developed and developing economies is likely to drive the demand. Additionally, adoption of advanced techniques for curing diseases is another important factor supporting the market growth. For instance, Zeus introduced an LCP monofilament for use in catheter braiding reinforcement, which will help in catheter construction without using metal. Thriving automotive industry in the developing economies as a result of surging demand for lightweight automobiles is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the monofilament market.
