Synthetic Fibre Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Synthetic Fibre Manufacturing in Canada

In the past five years, the Synthetic Fibre Manufacturing industry faced unfavourable conditions in the construction sector, causing many industry operators to shut down or move abroad. Nevertheless, as consumer spending expands, downstream manufacturers increase production and thus purchase more synthetic fibre inputs. Therefore, in the five years to 2017, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will increase. Over the next five years, the Synthetic Fibre Manufacturing industry is expected to steadily grow, though revenue will still remain far below prerecessionary levels. Use of recycled fibres will become increasingly prominent as regulatory standards and consumer preferences motivate manufacturers to use more environmentally friendly materials as well as the need to hedge risks associated with volatile oil prices. Innovation will forge a path for new operators to enter the industry, creating higher value products that cater to niche markets. While the Canadian dollar is anticipated to stabilize, exports will continue to fall. Consequently, industry revenue is forecast to modestly increase over the five years to 2022.
