[ Technical Textiles - Technical textiles market to reach US$ 193.7 billion by 2020 ]

The global technical textiles market will reach US$ 193.7 billion by 
2020, amplifying at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% during 
the forecast period 2015-2020, according to Future Market Insights’ (FMI) 
latest research report Technical Textiles Market: Global Industry Analysis 
and Opportunity Assessment 2015-2020.
According to FMI, the key factors fuelling the growth of the technical 
textiles market include robust growth of the automotive sector in emerging 
markets and increase in number of end-use industries across various regions.
FMI says the key challenges for the global technical textile market are 
high pricing of finished products and concerns about toxic waste production.
Demand for e-textiles is also growing in emerging economies, and FMI 
estimates this trend to become more pronounced in the near future. Key 
players are focusing on research and development (R&D) activities to 
enhance the wearability of such textile materials.
The technical textiles industry is witnessing rapid innovations to meet the 
changing preferences of consumers. It is also expected that government support 
programmes will provide an impetus to the manufacture of technical textiles.
FMI has segmented the global technical textiles market on the basis of product 
type into nonwovens, composite, and others (knitting, braiding, and weaving). 
According to FMI, the nonwovens segment has the largest share in the technical 
textiles market, accounting for 52.6% share in 2015. FMI expects this segment 
to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period 2015-2020.
The composite segment held a 14.7% share of the global technical textiles 
market in 2015 but FMI estimates it will account for 14.4% market share by 2020.
The others segment, which includes knitting, braiding, and weaving, accounted 
for 32.7% share of the technical textiles market in 2015. FMI estimates this 
segment to expand at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period and reach a 
valuation of US$ 61 Bn.
