Technical Textiles fibers are superior to synthetic fibers in terms of strength. As a result, they are employed extensively in various applications outside of clothing, including automotive, medical, and other industries.

Market Dynamic


The application of the textile industry has given the textile product an unexpected change. With technological advancement, the use of textile products has increased rapidly and improved its performance to be more durable and convenient for its users. The demand for technical textiles is still growing due to their superior functionality and application in clothing, footwear, carpets, bags, etc.

As a result of globalization and urbanization, people are exposed to new materials such as cotton, polyester, and polypropylene. The expansion of production is increasing the demand for technical textiles, encouraging innovation in innovative technologies. The development of this market also has to do with changes in consumer behavior and technological advances that enhance the value proposition of particular textile products.


The complex procedure of technical textiles manufacturing is a restraint to the market participants as it requires advanced infrastructure, which is cost sensitive. Along with this, the high cost of raw material procurement inevitably raises the total price of the finished product to an extent where the manufacturers are left with limited opportunities for profit margin.


The techno-economic growth in the textile industry is expected to contribute to the development of new technologies and products. New technologies are increasingly making their way into the textile industry and changing the intended objectives for textiles. These new technologies and scientific advancements have developed unique processes to manufacture fibers with the functional properties required for technical materials.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a surge in demand for healthcare supplies and nonwoven materials because healthcare workers cannot attend classes and perform their duties. The world has had more deaths in the last few months than at any other time in history. This makes it imperative for hospitals and health facilities to run on generators and fuel.

However, there are no signs of peace or relief from this nightmare, meaning the demand for fuels will keep increasing as people worldwide suffer from the aftereffects of COVID-19 or coronavirus.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are mobiltech textiles projected to ensure the most revenue during the forecast period?

At 35.0% of the market, mobiltech textiles had the greatest revenue share. Due to the increased production and sales of automobiles worldwide, mobiltech textiles are anticipated to experience great growth in the years to come. Due to their excellent durability and wear resistance, technical textiles are utilized in producing airbags, seat belts, seating upholstery, tire cords, and linear, among other products.

The market for mobiltech textiles will be driven in the next years by government regulations requiring the installation of airbags in automobiles, strict restrictions surrounding the use of seat belts, and rising consumer expenditure on luxurious and long-lasting seating upholstery.

Why is the Non-Woven Based Production segment expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

During the anticipated period, the nonwoven segment will continue dominating the technical textile market. Nonwoven processes are chosen over composite and other methods because they are less expensive and increase specific natural or synthetic fiber qualities, ultimately improving textile materials’ performance.

Nonwoven textiles are the best material for automotive applications because of their superior absorption and cushioning. Sportswear manufacturing seeks materials with high strength and softness, which fuels the demand for nonwoven textiles.
