Demand in automotive textiles production

Automotive textiles share in the America spandex industry is expected to rise significantly in the coming years. Stringent government regulations for the utilization of seat belts and airbags in motor vehicles are encouraging high adoption of the product in automotive textiles. The product’s exceptional flexibility and its ability to return to the original shape make it a highly preferred material used in automotive car seat covers, door panels, and vehicle wraps.

Growing manufacturing of motor vehicles is expected to augment spandex material demand from the automotive industry. As per the European Automobile Manufacturers Associations estimations, about 92.8 million motor vehicles were produced globally in 2019.

High suitability in home furnishing products

High adoption of home furnishing products among consumers in Canada has generated significant spandex fabric demand for its applications in fabrics, cushions, curtains, carpets, bedding, and bathroom linen. The presence of various government initiatives such as Affordable Housing Initiative (AHI), Made in China, and New Building Canada Plan (NBCP) is supporting residential construction activities.

In social infrastructure development, the government of Canada had invested US$6 billion in 2020. This investment was planned to encourage new residential construction and renovation of buildings which is likely to increase demand for home furnishing.

Flourishing automotive sector in Brazil

Increasing government efforts in Brazil to uplift the regional automotive industry is anticipated to boost spandex market growth.
