Automotive Fabric Market Size Analysis

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Automotive Fabric Market grew at a CAGR of 2.8% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 29,742.6Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 41,551.3Mn by 2032 end.

A vehicle’s fabrics are an essential component. They are utilized in a wide range of applications, including airbags, upholstery, belts & hoses, and several others, to give the car a more upscale appearance or improve its safety features.

Due to the steady growth in car sales, many automobile manufacturers’ demand for fabrics is rising quickly. Additionally, it is projected that the global automotive textiles market will do well over the next ten years due to regional governments implementing strict rules related to car safety requirements.

Market Dynamic


Increased vehicle sales, rapid economic growth, and strict government safety regulations requiring safety belts and airbags, among other things, are the main drivers of the worldwide automotive fabric industry. Additionally, the growth in disposable income in developing Asia-Pacific nations is a key factor in the spike in passenger vehicle production, which drives the market’s expansion.

As a result, expanding applications for the passenger vehicle segment are directly tied to increased acceptance of fabric materials.


Growing worries about the poor moisture absorption of some vehicle fabrics could impede the growth of the global market for automotive fabrics. Some synthetic materials utilised in automotive applications have hydrophobic qualities, which may lead to inadequate moisture absorption and limit product acceptance.

Some automobile fabrics are not biodegradable, which prevents nature from organically disposing of the materials, which is another concern that can limit market expansion. The expansion of the automotive fabrics market during the evaluation period may be slightly hampered by growing consumer interest in using eco-friendly car fabric materials.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is the significance of Polyester fabric?

Every repeat unit of the main chain in the class of polymers known as polyester has an ester functional group. It most frequently refers to a type of substance known as polyethylene terephthalate as a specific material (PET). Polyesters are made from synthetic materials like polybutyrate and naturally occurring compounds in plants and insects. Biodegradable polyesters include some artificial and some natural varieties. However, the majority of synthetic polyesters are not. Clothing frequently uses synthetic polyesters.
