Spandex Fiber Market Research, 2030

The global spandex fiber market was valued at $8.4 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $16.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.31% from 2021 to 2030.

COVID-19 has severely impacted the global economy with devastating effects on global trade, which has simultaneously affected households, business, financial institution, industrial establishments, and infrastructure companies. The spread of COVID-19 moderately impacted this market. Increase in demand for healthcare products during pandemic led to rise in demand for spandex fiber in the production of surgical gloves, masks, and other medical cloths. Stringent regulation of the government toward the shutdown of transportation sector led to increase in the difficulty in procurement of raw materials. Furthermore, pandemic led to decline in efficiency at the manufacturing sites, due to low labor force.

Spandex fiber is a synthetic fiber, manufactured from the long chain of polyurethane, also called as lycra or elastane. This fiber is known for its exceptional elasticity and is more durable than rubber. It is lightweight, dyeable, and has excellent abrasion resistance. In comparison with other elastic materials, spandex fiber material does not get frayed when tailored. It has wide range of applications in the textile industries, including its use for tailoring swimming wear, cycling wear, and for casual wear. In addition, it is used as raw material to manufacture healthcare related products, including surgical gloves and baby diapers. The global spandex fiber market growth is driven considerably, owing to growth in population and change in fashion trends. Furthermore, development of bio-based raw material products is attributed to change in market dynamics of spandex fibers in the textile sector.

Demand for spandex fiber is increasing from various industry verticals, including textile and automotive, owing to its extensive set of properties, such as elasticity, durability, and resistance to ultra violet light. Spandex fiber is widely used in textile industries to make stretchable clothing.

The solution dry spinning segment dominates the global spandex fiber market. Solution dry spinning is most cost efficient process in fiber manufacturing. Fibers manufactured through this process offer better elastic recovery, which is the reason for the largest market share compared to other production methods. In dry spinning fiber production, prepolymer (produced by mixing macro glycol with a diisocyanate monomer) is reacted with an equal amount of diamine. This is known as a chain extension reaction. The resulting solution is diluted with a solvent to produce spinning solution. Solvent helps to make the solution thinner and more easily handled. At last, the spinning solution is pumped into a cylindrical spinning cell , in which it is cured and converted into fibers. Dry spinning technique is used only for polymers which cannot be melt and spun, owing to safety and environmental concerns associated with solvent handling.
