It is one of the largest industries in the world, and is growing at a phenomenal rate owing to the rising housing demand in countries such as India, China, and the U.S. Flooring & carpeting is one of the most important aspects in a residential or commercial building owing to its superior finishing and looks. Product use in making a variety of carpets for flooring application will enhance the polyester fiber market in the coming years.


Olefin, nylon, and polyester are the major products involved in the manufacturing of synthetic fibers which are used for industrial purposes and to produce carpets & rugs. These are also produced by using different types of polymer blends and recycled polyester. Most of these raw materials are derived from crude oils and other fossil fuels. Fluctuations in the global crude oil prices will create volatility in the raw material prices, thus creating growth barriers for the polyester fiber market.

Polyester Fiber Market, By Grade

Polyester fiber market is bifurcated into PET (polyethylene terephthalate) polyester, and PCDT (poly-1, 4-cyclohexylene-dimethylene terephthalate) polyester. PET is most commonly used in the production of fabrics with superior quality and can be blended with other materials for the production of stain resistant and wrinkle free apparels and textiles. The main raw material used to derive PET is ethylene which is derived from petroleum.

PCDT is formed from condensation process and is suitable for heavy applications such as furniture covering and draperies. Increasing construction activities in the developing countries is demanding for more interior decoration and furnishing owing to rising income level of consumers. Also, the life of average furniture purchased ranges from 5 to 15 years. Increasing furniture demand and rising refurnishing activities will fuel the polyester fiber market growth.

Polyester Fiber Market, By Product
