Textile Machinery market Segment Analysis — By Raw Materials
The polyester segment is anticipated to witness significant market growth with CAGR 8.5% during the forecast period 2021–2026. Polyester fiber has become the fiber of choice within the textile industry, because of its physical properties, recyclability, versatility and price, which offers a unique set of advantages unmatched by other fibers. According to A New Textiles Economy Report 2019, polyester accounts for roughly half of the overall fiber market and around 80% of synthetics fiber. Polyester is employed to make apparel, home furnishings, industrial textiles, computer and recording tapes, and electrical insulation, among other things. Polyester offers a number of benefits over conventional materials like cotton. Polyester is ideal for the application of water, dirt, and fire-resistant finishes as it does not absorb moisture but does absorb oil. It is inherently stain-resistant because of its poor absorbency. Polyester clothing may be preshrunk during the finishing process, and it will not shrink or stretch out of shape after that. The cloth is mildew resistant and easily dyeable. As textured polyester fibres are good insulators and are nonallergenic, they’re used to fill cushions, quilts, coats, sleeping bags and other items. All such factors together are set to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
Textile Machinery market Segment Analysis — By End User Type
Garments sector held the highest market share in 2020 and is projected to grow with CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2021–2026. Skin sensory comfort and thermo-physiological comfort have arisen as key trends in the clothing business, and corporations are investing in the creation of goods that can suit these expanding requirements. Apart from that, skin-sensitive materials have become a big trend in the apparel business, with firms creating items to match this broadening demand. For instance, Eurojersey released Sensitive Fabrics T-shirts using regenerated Reco Nylon in cooperation with WWF Italy in 2019. Growing need for skin-sensitive textiles would drive up demand for cotton, which is the safest fiber into which Textile Machinery can be integrated thereby boosting the market’s development. Digital printing, embroidery, traditional stitching, embellishment attachment, heat transfer, and laser decorating have all benefited from technological advances in textile machines for direct clothes. In addition, growth in electronic textile decorating needs has taken place outside of the realm of esthetics, with the goal of increasing the utility of the wearer. The textile machinery market will thus benefit from increased demand for textiles and clothing, as well as a growing population and middle-class families.
Textile Machinery market Segment Analysis — Geography
APAC region held the highest market share in 2020 with market share of around 74%. The region is likely to retain its dominance over the projection period as well. Furthermore, in terms of countries, China and India, as well as emerging markets including South Korea and Japan, are among the leading contributors to market revenues. Changing buying patterns, rising population, disposable incomes, rising demand for apparel and home furnishings, lower production costs, and inexpensive labour are the primary drivers of the textile industry’s expansion, which in turn promotes the market growth for textile machinery in this region.
