3D Fabric Market Outlook – 2030

A 3D fabric is made up of three orthogonal strands. It is the latest textile innovation. Three orthogonal yarns are used to make three-dimensional fabrics. The fabric is described as a single fabric system with material arranged in yarn that appears to be folded into three interlinked layers. It is mostly made up of a solid framework and many layers. This fabric is also used in protective clothing to give high-quality security. Nowadays, 3D fabric is being used to make spacesuits, which are meant to keep an astronaut alive in space. For instance, NASA uses 3D fabric in production of their space suits.

The global 3D fabric market is segmented on the basis of type, technology, application, industry vertical and region. Based on type, the market is divided into woven, orthogonal nonwoven, 3D solids, 3D hollows, 3D shells, 3D nodal, and Others. In terms of technology, the market is categorized into stitching operation, multilayer principle, orthogonal principle, angle interlock principle, dual direction shedding method, and others.

On the basis of application, the market is divided into construction, automotive, ballistic, carbon fiber, and others. In terms of industry vertical, the 3D fabric market is segregated into medical, heavy industrial, military, marine, consumer goods, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global 3D fabric industry include Sigmatex, Textum Inc, Cetriko S.L., Cristex, Sculpteo, Texinov, Nikol, Müller Textile Group, Stäubli International AG, Karl Mayer Stoll. These companies have adopted several strategies such as product launches, partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures to strengthen their foothold in the global 3D fabric market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The concern produced by the COVID-19 outbreak has brought demand for textile items both internationally and domestically to a halt. All textile-related factories are shut as a result of the lockdown, and it is difficult to predict when they will be able to reopen. The business community is concerned about cash shortages, supply chain disruptions, and staffing concerns.
  •  The textile industry has suffered a significant loss as a result of global shutdown, which has brought the supply chain to a halt. The textile business, like many other industries, is facing new challenges. Manufacturing industries have been harmed by disruptions in raw material supply, temporary shutdown of manufacturing units, inadequate finance, and weak consumer demand. The majority of the textile industry has been closed for months.

Top Impacting Factors

The use of 3D-fabric is on the rise and its finding a home in a variety of technical fabrics. To overcome the drawbacks of 2D materials, such as more prone to cracking, gaps in joints and intersections, 3D fabrics are increasingly being employed in a variety of textile applications. This fabric is utilized in the construction of aircraft and other complex structures as well as attractive to look at. 3D fabric printing is a more efficient method of producing products, but it is costly due to high material costs, which is a major market constraint. These high prices are due to the higher purity and composition criteria required for 3D printing.

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

Polymer making industries, such as Polymaker and Covestro AG, have launched their new 3D printable fabrics developed in collaboration in July 2020. The team looked at a variety of materials for the purpose before settling on a TPU-based polymer in two grades – 90A and 95A. MIT researchers have already experimented with 3D printed fabric materials. The developers created a skin-like flexible 3D printable fabric with the goal of supporting soft tissues such as muscles and tendons. They plan to continue working on the project and create medical gadgets, wearable supports, and implants in the future.

Surge in Usage in Composite Sector and Medical Textile Industry

By far the most significant application area for 3D fabrics is the composite sector, in which they are used as reinforcement materials in textile structural composites in combination with multiple matrices. 3D fabric in medical textiles is commonly employed for devices that require exceptional stability, excellent durability over a large number of loading cycles, or precise pore control for air or fluid flow. In automotive industry, it is used in production of air bags, carpets, seat coverings. As an alternative to corrugated steel structures, 3D fabric is used for building recreational boats in a marine company, for the creation of industrial pressure tanks, and for the industrial/infrastructure market.
