Overview of the global technical textiles market

Technavio’s industry analysis on the global technical textiles market predicts that the technical textile market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period. The growing demand for geotextiles will drive the growth prospects for the global technical textiles market in the coming years. Geotextiles are robust technical textiles, which are characterized by properties like their puncture resistance, larger elongation before breaking, filter characteristics during strains, and high ultraviolet protection. They have an extended range of mechanical and physical properties that can be altered by using different polymers. Some of the major applications of geotextiles include the stabilization and separation, filtration, reinforcement, transmission, and erosion control. Furthermore, geotextiles prevent the mixing of smaller materials with bigger particles to reduce erosion and increase the holding capacity of weak soils. Also, the geotextile material that lies under the roadbed strengthens the soft soil and conserves the road embankment. Additionally, some of the erosion control applications include slope protection, stream and canal banks, diversion ditches, scour protection, beaches, and culvert outlets.

In terms of geography, APAC accounted for the maximum market share during 2015 and will continue to dominate the market in the forthcoming years. Some of the major factors that fuel the technical ceramics market in the region are the rising awareness regarding technical textiles among individuals, rising disposable incomes, and the demand for wearable technology. Also, the growth of end-user industries such as the automotive, agriculture, protective textiles, healthcare, defense, and infrastructure development is encouraging the growth of the market in the region. Other factors that propels the market’s growth in the region includes advancements in technologies and favorable initiatives that are implemented by the governments and the rapid growth in industrialization in emerging economies such as India and China.
