The increasing demand for textile coatings has led to rapid developments in textile coatings market over the years. The constant development of the coating techniques has led to the latest achievements, which have led to the formation of nanoporous polymer layers on textile substrates that make the textile fabrics water-resistant. Fabrics coated with millions of silicone filaments of nanometer length never allow them to be wet. The progress in photovoltaic textile coatings has become a new era in flexible textiles for electronic and energy harvesting. The use of these products is growing as they are entering the consumer market rapidly. The global market has seen significant progress in the chemical analysis of coatings in recent years. Much of the technical inspiration behind the development of fabrics stems from the characteristics of modern gadgets, some of which include water and stain repellent, anti-growth characteristics, wind resistant characteristics, and anti-dust characteristics. These factors have positively contributed to the growth of textile coatings market.
Based on product type, rubber coated fabrics segment is expected to account for a volume of more than 425 million square meters by 2025. The major applications of rubber-coated fabrics include truck covers, protective garments, aprons, gymnasium mattresses, lifeboats, boats, rainwear, storage bags, and food conveyor belts, among others. Industrialization and advancement in technology.is expected to drive the demand for rubber-coated fabrics during the forecast period.
Proper and adequate protective clothing is desirable during household chores and in agricultural, industrial, medical, military operations and in the event of terrorism. In these clothing items, different types of materials and garment designs are used, and the levels of protection vary considerably. Therefore, the global coated fabric market held the largest applicability in protective clothing, which is likely to grow at a revenue CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. Factors such as the implementation of standardized safety protective measures for the workers involved in industrial operations and use of protective clothing in safety packages used for rescue and swimming purposes is expected to drive this segment in the global coated fabrics market. For instance, in Europe, governed by the Directive 89/686/EEC, personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to ensure that it complies with common standards of quality and safety by laying down basic safety requirements for personal protective equipment. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies protective clothing based on the protection level from the highest to the normal protection. Increasing concerns about the safety of workers in industries have led to the growth in coated fabrics market size and the trend is likely to continue in the next five years.
Geographically, coated fabrics market trends differ across the regions. North America is projected to cross USD 5 billion by 2025. The U.S. coated fabrics market is likely to dominate the region during the forecast period. This growth is assisted by the rise in motor vehicle production, the largest application for coated fabrics. In addition, renewed economic growth, increased production output and a rebound in construction activity will offer opportunities for growth. Increased spending on protective clothing for military personnel and industrial machinery applications is another key driving factor behind the growth of the coated fabrics market in the region.
