Growing Use in Automotive Industry to Drive the Market
Automotive interiors are required to fulfill some demanding requirements. In addition with providing high level of comfort and attractive look; such are also needed to be maintained over time, while providing resistivity from constant abrasion and chemical staining, often under harsh conditions of temperature. Owing to these, textiles used in automotive interiors are coated to prevent them from harsh conditions. The global automotive production increased by 2.4% in 2017, with further growth expected in years to come. Growing automotive production primarily in Asia-Pacific and European countries is expected to drive the market.
Thermoplastic – The Majorly Used Polymer Type
In 2017, thermoplastics dominated the global textile coatings market. Due to various superior properties of thermoplastics, such as their lightweight nature, excellent insulating nature (both electrical and thermal) etc., they are widely used a coating material. They are generally used as hot-melt adhesives and can be welded by heat. Among thermoplastics, PVC was the majorly used polymer for textile coatings. PVC is an economic polymer and provides resistivity against oil, solvent, and abrasion. Furthermore they exhibit superior fire retardant properties are hence, preferred as a suitable polymer material in textile coating applications.
Asia-Pacific – the Dominating Regional Market
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest regional market in the global textile coatings market in 2017 and is also expected to register the fastest growth through the forecast period. Growing demand from the automotive industry, construction industry, home furnishing industry, and growing demand for protective textiles is expected to drive the market in Asia-Pacific region, primarily in countries, such as China, India, and Japan.
