Market Dynamic


Demand for clothing and apparel has seen a tremendous rise in the last few years, with a change in the financial landscape and the introduction of fast fashion as some of the primary catalysts for the market. Clothing item consumption in developing countries is especially picking up the pace due to a rapid increase in their GDP. China and India are projected to be the fastest-growing countries in the industry as they invest heavily in the market.


As such, there are many different types of substitutes for acrylic fiber during the forecast period. For instance, some commonly used synthetic fibers are polyester, polyamide, and polypropylene. Polyester fibers are the most widely used synthetic fiber in the world, primarily due to their durability, lightweight form factor, and strong fastness to dyes.


The increase in demand for the furniture & upholstery market drives the acrylic fiber market. The e-commerce space for furniture & upholstery has steadily risen due to the ease of viewing products and availability. The Covid-19 pandemic further bolstered this as stay-at-home culture, and social distancing became common norms. This led to an increase in sales of furniture and upholstery online.

COVID-19 Impact

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is Acrylic Staple Fibre projected to ensure the most revenue during the forecast period?

Acrylic Staple Fibre had 55.0% of the market share and had the highest revenue share in this group of products. This can be attributed to the rising usage of stable acrylic fiber forms across end-use verticals. A non-continuous, rather short-length fiber is a staple fiber. Due to their limited length, staple fibers must be twisted together to create a long, continuous yarn. To create threads with a natural feel, synthetic fibers can be used alone or chopped into similar short lengths and mixed with natural staple fibers.

Why has Gel Dyeing will become the fastest-growing segment?

Gel dyeing is a continuous tow dyeing technique in which soluble colors are applied to wet-spun synthetic fibers. At the same time, they are in gel condition, such as acrylic or modacrylic fibers. The gel dyeing method has great environmental benefits compared to traditional processes and is therefore preferred by manufacturers.

Why is the textile & apparel industry segment expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

In 2021, The global textile and apparel industry will continue to grow. The acrylic fiber market holds the largest share, as it helps make up a large portion of the textile industry. It is manufactured as a filament, cut into short staple lengths, and spun into yarn. Acrylic fibers are resistant to moths, oils, and chemicals and provide a soft and warm feel while also being lightweight. It also has excellent wicking ability, which lets the acrylic fiber fabric absorb moisture from sweating and transfer it to the outer surface where it is evaporated.
