The increase in the demand for fibers and yarns to produce apparel and household textiles is expected to positively impact the global textile industry during the forecast period. The global textile market reached USD 1,500 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR 6.20% during the forecast period. India, China, Pakistan, and the US are the major producers of textiles globally. This is expected to stimulate the demand for acrylic fibers as they are highly used in the production of sweaters, fleece wear, sportswear, socks, and circularly knit apparel. The strong dye absorption and wicking ability are the major factors underlying the adoption of acrylic fibers by fabric designers. Acrylic fibers are also widely used in the production of home textiles and industrial products such as carpets, rugs, upholstery and velvet fabric. Thus, the growth in textile industry is expected to drive the growth of the market in focus.

Acrylic Fibers Market: Increase in Demand for Acrylic Fibers in Blended Fabrics

The increase in the use of acrylic fibers for blended fabrics is expected to positively impact market growth during the forecast period. Blending involves the addition of two or more different fibers to obtain the desired characteristics for the final fiber product. Acrylic blending fabrics are mainly used to produce t-shirts, socks, tracksuits, gloves, and caps. Blending accords better strength, stability, and absorbency to the final fabric. The limited availability and the high cost of natural fibers is expected to drive the demand for blended fabrics during the forecast period. The blending of wool with acrylic fibers improves the elasticity and durability of the final product. In addition, acrylic-blended wool is easy to wash and is much more resilient. Cotton-blended yarns and fabrics with acrylic resins provide superior comfort, uniformity, and warmth and enhanced luster. Furthermore, acrylic fibers make the yarn softer and more durable.

“Factors such as the rise in demand from developing countries, and the increasing preference for intelligent textiles will have a significant impact on the growth of the acrylic fibers market value during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
