Global Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Fabric Market to Reach US$ 56.7 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Demand for Lightweight Textile Materials

July 24, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Fabric Market Report by Source (Virgin PET, Recycled PET, Blended PET), Fabric Type (Woven, Non-Woven, Knitted), Form (Staple, Filament, Fiberfill, Tow), Application (Apparel, Household, Industrial, Carpet and Rugs, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fabric market reached a value of US$ 34.8 Billion in 2023. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fabric refers to semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester fiber. It is manufactured through a chemical reaction between ethylene glycol (EG) and monomers purified terephthalic acid (PTA) or can be produced by recycling processed plastic bottles. As compared to conventional fabric, PET fabric is lightweight, cost-effective, recyclable, highly flexible, and has a better tensile strength-to-weight ratio and chemical, moisture, and shatter-resistance. Apart from this, PET fabric is easily transportable, durable, offers optimum stiffness, and prevents the growth of microorganisms. As a result, PET fabric finds extensive applications in interior fabrics, packaging materials, homeware, industrial clothing, rugs, carpets, and other furnishing materials in varying forms.

Global Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Fabric Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of PET fabric across the textile industry can be attributed to the increasing need for cost-effective, lightweight materials with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to lower the utilization of natural fabrics, including cotton and wool. This is further supported by the growing awareness amongst consumers and manufacturers regarding PET fabric benefits. Furthermore, the rising environmental concerns have prompted governments of several countries to promote the uptake of sustainable and recyclable materials, such as PET fabric, to mitigate carbon emissions and pollution levels by reducing plastic waste disposable. Additionally, with the substantial growth in the food and beverage (F&B) sector, there has been escalating demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) and ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. This, in turn, has propelled the extensive utilization of recycled food-grade PET fabric as a packaging solution to maintain product quality, which in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, such as rapid industrialization, extensive product utilization for manufacturing consumer goods, and strategic collaborations amongst key players to enhance product efficacy and identify its diverse usage, are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 56.7 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2024-2032.
