Textile coating market refers to a process of depositing a resin over textile substrate on either one or both the sides of the fabric. The process has been in vogue since long, though its significance has increased in recent years on account of technological advancements and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Healthcare professionals have been looking for fabrics and textile that would repel chemicals or viruses while protecting them from being a host of infections in the healthcare settings. The quest of this has led researchers from LAMP Lab at University of Pittsburg Swanson School of Engineering to develop a novel textile coating that does not let viruses, blood, saliva, or other body liquids to penetrate through the textile surface. Since vulnerability of carrying COVID-19 infection through masks, gowns or other PPE is significantly rising, this discovery is expected to stand as a groundbreaking step in the textile coatings business space.

The textile coating technology and techniques have diversified and advanced dramatically over the past few years as the applications of the technical textiles have considerably increased. Considering the burgeoning demands for new products, the textile coatings market has undergone a wave of radical change over the years. The constant development of coating techniques has paved way for new accomplishments across the realm leading to the formation of nano porous polymer layers onto the textile substrates. This apparently makes the textile fabrics waterproof and windproof whilst giving space of breathing.
Textile coatings have found notable applications across automotive, medical, construction, hosiery, and various other sectors and rising intensity of automobile production across developing economies has triggered substantial rise of textiles in the vehicles. Automotive textiles are generally used in vehicles like buses, cars, trains, marine vehicles, and different other vehicles that call for distinct types of textile components, yarns, fibers, filaments, etc. Speculations have it that about two-thirds of automobile textiles are used in interior trim of vehicles while the rest is being utilized to enhance the appeal of tires, hoses, air bags, etc.
A breakthrough development across the automotive textile industry is rather evident through the introduction of INSQIN technology by Covestro, a leader in polymer solutions. The waterborne polyurethane technology would be able to furnish a wide range of coated textiles and new materials to embellish the stylish in-car experience in the near future.
Above that, the electric car sponsored by Covestro, Sonnenwagen, was a part of Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019 held in Australia. The car, as stated by various sources, was made up of the materials including translucent polyurethane synthetics which covered the steering wheel and car seat covers. Essentially, the polyurethane materials for textile coating market has picked up pace across the globe when it comes to the automobiles. It can therefore be accurately stated that the use of polyurethane materials is emerging as an outstanding trend for the textile coatings market across the automotive sector.
The polyurethane materials are vividly used across the car body. Say for instance, the car seats which are made comfortable for the passengers, are equipped with the polyurethane foam. Not only this, the material also finds its use in the bumpers, interior headliner ceiling, car doors, car body, and windows. These materials enable the automakers to offer increased mileage due to their robust characteristics of reduced weight, increased fuel economy, corrosion resistance, high sound absorption, and insulation.

Considering the future of polyurethane coatings across the automotive sector, BASF has emerged as an innovation creator in the global market. The company believes that whatever be the component, polyurethane materials make it possible for the manufacturers to actually build an exceptional model to suffice the customer requirements. In this regard, BASF polyurethanes have always been the most preferred materials when designing the interior components. BASF has reportedly unveiled Elastollan, which has been designed to augment the aesthetics of door handles and make them stand out owing to the remarkable and comfortable touch.
Initiatives like these are enabling the textile coatings market to expand at an appreciable pace. Inadvertently, the industry is anticipated to witness umpteen innovations in this field in the upcoming years which would improve the standard of living and lead to a better future.
