Drivers & Restraints-

High Demand for Conductive Textile to Accelerate Growth

The demand for metal fiber is high from the textile industry worldwide. This is because of the recent trend of wearing smart textiles or e-textiles. Also, biomedical clothing contains electrodes made of conductive yarns. Besides, antistatic or conductive textiles are used extensively in a wide range of applications, such as military, electronic devices, home textiles, and optical & pharmaceutical industries.

However, the development of innovative metal fiber production technology requires the assistance of various fields, namely, pressure handling, powder metallurgy, porous materials, and non-woven manufacturing. Manufacturers sometimes are unable to keep up with the requirements. This factor may hamper the metal fiber market growth in the coming years.

Segment-

Rising Usage of Stainless Steel Fibers to Favor Growth of Textile Segment

Based on end-use, the aerospace segment held 16.5% in terms of metal fiber market share in 2019. The textile segment is expected to earn the highest revenue throughout the forthcoming years fueled by the increasing usage of stainless steel fibers and yarns for shielding textiles from electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Regional Analysis-

Asia Pacific to Remain at Forefront Backed by High Demand from India & China

Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2019 and is likely to remain in its position in the near future. This growth is attributable to the high demand for metal fibers from India and China. Also, India would showcase a considerable demand from the textile and automotive industries. In 2019, North America procured USD 629.9 million in terms of revenue. The increasing usage of textiles, such as protective clothing, upholstery fabrics, and carpets is set to surge the demand for metal fiber in this region.

Competitive Landscape-

Key Players Focus on Expanding Production to Attract More Customers

The market for metal fibers is highly fragmented. Most of the companies are adopting strategies, such as investments, acquisitions, research & development activities, and innovation to strengthen their positions. Some of the others are broadening their production processes and shifting their facilities to bigger locations for attracting more customers. Below is a recent industry development:

July 2020: Bekaert will move its US production activities of Dramix® steel fiber to a state-of-the-art facility in Wilkes-Barre in fall 2020. It took this decision because of the high demand for Dramix® steel fiber. The company’s Shelbyville team will assist customers during the entire relocation process. To meet the ‘U.S. made and melt’ requirement, the company is investing in high-quality steel fiber production.
