Polyester Fiber Market Outlook 2021 | Opportunity, Demand Analysis, and Forecast to 2026

As per Global Market Insights Inc. estimates, the global polyester fiber market size is anticipated to surpass $190 billion by 2026.

The global polyester fiber market share is slated to proliferate at a commendable pace over 2019-2026, driven by the mounting usage of polyester fiber material in manufacturing home textiles & apparel, alongside rapid urbanization worldwide. Likewise, the burgeoning home decor and apparel industry, especially in developing countries, is a major factor bolstering the industry outlook.

The product has been gaining widespread adoption as an alternative to synthetic fibers among apparel companies and carpet makers due to its superior characteristics. Other polyester fiber advantages include its cost-effective nature as compared to nylon, polypropylene, and wool. It is also highly wrinkle and stain-resistant, produces aesthetic appeal and soft feel, and has extraordinary luster capabilities.

Following are 3 key trends outlining global polyester fiber market growth by 2026:

1. Rapid expansion of home decor & e-Commerce industry

The polyester fiber material can be seamlessly blended with other fibers to improve their strength and durability. These factors, alongside the thriving e-Commerce and home decor sectors, are adding significant impetus to the polyester fiber market expansion over the forecast spell.

Considering the grade, the PCDT grade segment is poised to depict a CAGR of over 9% through 2026, on account of its exceptional resilience and elasticity, making it a suitable material for manufacturing home textile & furnishings. The segmental growth can further be credited to the increased PCDT polyester fiber applications in high-end textiles such as furniture covers, drapes, curtains, and upholstery.

On the other hand, the PET segment accounted for a considerable share in 2018, which was attributable to its superior strength as compared to the CDT grade. It can also be blended with other fabrics to make the clothing highly resistant to wrinkle and stain. Despite the elasticity and resilience of PCDT grade, PET is considered to be stronger and used in a wider variety of applications, thereby surging the popularity of PET polyester fibers.

2. Robust demand for winterwear in cold regions across Europe & North America

In terms of segmentation by product, the global polyester fiber market from the solid segment registered remarkable revenue in 2018. This was the result of its cost-effectiveness, durability, softness, and tensile strength. Meanwhile, the hollow product segment is likely to record remuneration worth around $30 billion by 2026, owing to the escalating demand for coats, winterwear, and jackets in extremely cold regions in North America and Europe, as this product type is utilized in making protective clothing, quilts, and pillows.

With regards to the application spectrum, the apparels segment will gain momentum over the forthcoming years, due to the accelerating product demand in the fast-fashion and garment sector.

Besides, the home textiles segment held more than 15% of the polyester fiber market share in 2018, which can be credited to the rising adoption of home decor and furnishing products such as draperies, curtains, bedsheets, upholstery, pillow covers, quilts, and coverings. The need for superior strength and durability for these products is fulfilled by the use of polyester fiber, thus bolstering segmental growth in years to come.
