China Synthetic Fiber Market Outlook - 2020–2027

The China synthetic fiber market size was valued at $17.0 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $26.5 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2020 to 2027.

Synthetic fibers are man-made fibers that are manufactured by extruding fiber-forming materials through process known as polymerization. Its properties such as durability, elasticity, softness, and can be dyed easily make them widely adopted in applications such as home décor, apparel, automotive, and building & construction. In addition, high strength, resistance to wrinkling, and ability to dry faster make them widely adopted material in furniture upholstery application. Fiberglass, polymer non-woven, including spunbond, and spunlace are different types of synthetic fiber that are widely adopted in the market. Mineral wool is an inorganic and non-metallic compound that is manufactured using mixtures of materials such as stone or silica at elevated temperature range until it turns into molten form. Fiberglass also known as glass reinforced plastic or glass fiber reinforced is a lightweight, strong, and less brittles synthetic fiber. Mineral wool and fiberglass are the major insulating material used in most of the applications, including building and construction for the insulation of wall, ceiling, roof, and floor.

China synthetic fiber market growth factor is attributed to rise in use of synthetic fiber in applications such as clothing, pillows, and high-performance outdoor apparel. In addition, polymer nonwoven fibers can be used in sportswear and production of cold weather garments, which is expected to propel the growth of the market. Synthetic fibers are added in concrete to reduce plastic shrinkage cracking of reinforced and structural plain concrete. It can also be blended together with concrete that helps reduce shrinkage and temperature cracking in structural plain concrete slabs. The construction sector in China is predicted to grow with annual growth rate of 4.7% in 2021-2024. These are the major factors that are augmenting the growth of the China synthetic fiber market. However, environmental pollution attributed due to synthetic fiber is expected to hamper the market growth. Synthetic fibers are generally made up of chemical composition, which in turn poses threat to environmental pollution. Some synthetic fibers are made up of petroleum products and pose major threat to workers during the manufacturing process.

Growing apparel sector is predicted to offer new opportunity in the China synthetic fiber market. Synthetic fibers are widely used fiber material in the textile industry. Synthetic fiber is widely used during manufacturing of all types of clothing and it is also used in pillows and high-performance outdoor apparel. Petrochemical-based synthetic fibers dominate the global fiber production, while 65% of all fiber is produced in China that is majorly used by the textile sector. The textile sector in China is the largest in the world in both production and export and this sector contributes around 7% in country’s GDP.

The China synthetic fiber market analysis is done based on fiber type and application. Depending on fiber type, the market is segmented into fiberglass, mineral wool, polymer non-woven, and others. By application, it is fragmented into apparel, home décor, building & construction, automotive, appliances, and others. The appliance application is further sub-segmented into water heater, large cooking appliances, dishwashers, dryers, and others. The major companies profiled in this report include Changzhou Tianma Group Co. Ltd., China Jushi Co. Ltd., Foshan Rayson Non-Woven Co. Ltd., Hebei Yuniu Fiberglass Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Jia He Taizhou Glass Fiber Co. Ltd., Luyang Energy-Saving Materials Co, Ltd., Owens Corning, Rockwool China, Toray Fibers (Nantong) Co. Ltd., and Shuhai Huali Advanced Material Co. Ltd.
