Coated Fabrics

Coated Fabrics

The US coated fabrics market will reach 650 million square yards in 2020, growing at a 2.1% per year pace. Increases in manufacturing output of industrial and consumer goods that have the potential to use artificial leather and other coated fabrics will support gains in product demand. Cost considerations as well as improvements in durability, feel and other qualities of coated fabrics will propel their greater use over leather and other alternative materials.

This report provides data on the US coated fabrics industry, segmented by Products, Substrates, and Markets. Product data are provided in dollars, while substrates and markets are presented in square yards.

Coated fabric products include:
Polymer-Coated Fabrics
Rubber-Coated Fabrics
Fabric-Backed Wallcoverings

Polymer-coated fabrics will remain the largest product category through 2020, accounting for over 90% of the market. The relatively low cost of polymer-coated fabrics and advancements in durability, feel, and other qualities will provide opportunities for these products over leather and other alternative materials.

Coated fabric substrates include:
Polyester
Nylon
Cotton
Other (e.g., fiberglass, nonwovens, rayon, and polypropylene)

Polyester fabrics will remain the largest substrate, representing over half of the coated fabrics demand in 2020. Growth will be driven by the adequate cost to performance attributes ratio coated polyester fabrics provide in a range of applications.

Major coated fabric markets include:
Motor Vehicles
Marine & Other Non-Motor Vehicle Transportation
Protective Clothing
Industrial
Furniture
Commercial & Rental Tents
Wallcoverings
Awnings & Canopies
Other (e.g., books, packaging, and luggage, handbags and other bags)

The motor vehicle market was the leading outlet in 2015. Greater use of artificial leather and other coated fabrics in seating and other motor vehicle applications will promote product demand.

The global coated fabrics industry is fragmented. Participants include Bradford Industries, Brookwood, Canadian General-Tower, Glen Raven, Haartz, J. Josephson, Kuraray, Morbern, OMNOVA Solutions, Saint-Gobain, Seaman, Shawmut, Spradling International, Takata, Trelleborg, and Uniroyal Global Engineered Products.
