Polyester Fiber Market (Solid and Hollow) for Carpet & Rugs, Nonwoven Fabrics, Fiberfill and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2014 -- Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a material that can be finely extruded to create filaments and fibers. In this finely extruded form, PET is known as polyester fiber. The uses of polyester fiber are varied and wide. The polyester fiber market caters to industries such as rugs, carpets, nonwoven fabrics, and fiberfill. The demand for polyester fibers also comes from industrial applications such as apparel, industrial fiber, and home textiles.
The market for polyester fiber is determined by a variety of ancillary factors, the chief one being the cost and availability of raw materials. Key raw materials essential for the production of such fibers are monoethylene glycol (MEG) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA). A shortage in these materials or a spike in their costs directly impacts the polyester fiber market too.
The cheap availability of polyester fiber is its greatest advantage, and is also reason for this material having replaced many traditional fibers. However, polyester fiber is not heat resistant and it does not have absorbent properties, taking away from its user-friendly quotient.

The future of the polyester fiber market:
Polyester fiber demand is poised to increase considerably in the near future. This will primarily happen because of the various technological advancements that have now been deployed to make filaments thinner than ever before. With the use of ultra fine filaments, polyester fiber attains a smooth texture and silky feel. These characteristics also render it better color-holding properties.
In the next few years, as the disposable incomes of consumers continue to rise, demand for products under markets such as home furnishings soar. Rugs and carpets made from polyester fiber will gain a larger share as they will likely be purchased by an increasing number of commercial and corporate buyers.
In emerging economies, construction and renovation activities are on an upswing. Interior design and decoration projects are integral to most construction activities today. Carpets, rugs, throws, and other furnishings made using polyester fiber will witness soaring demand on account of widespread construction and interior design projects.
