Stratview Research 14-12-20

Stratview Research announces the launch of a new research report on Bicomponent Fiber Market by Material Type (PE/PP, PE/PET, Co-PET/PET, and Others), by Structure Type (Sheath-Core, Side-by-Side, Islands-in-the-Sea, and Others), by End-Use Industry Type (Hygiene, Textiles, Automotive, Home Furnish, and others), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2021-2026.

This strategic assessment report, from Stratview Research, provides a comprehensive analysis that reflects today’s bicomponent fiber market realities and future market possibilities for the forecast period of 2021 to 2026. The report estimates the short- as well as long-term repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic on the demand for bicomponent fiber at the global-, regional-, as well as country-level. Also, the report provides the possible loss that the industry will register by comparing pre-COVID and post-COVID scenarios. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for the market participants as well as investors in the identification of low-hanging fruits available in the market as well as formulate growth strategies.

Bicomponent Fiber Market: Highlights from the Report

Bicomponent fiber is a two-component fiber, which is extruded from two polymers of the same spinneret, that is, both polymers are constituted within the same filament. Bicomponent fibers are also known as “conjugate fibers”, particularly in Asian countries. The two polymers of a bicomponent fiber have different melting points and are accordingly structured for a specific application. Properties of bicomponent fibers depend on several factors, such as the nature and properties of both materials, their arrangement in the fiber, the relative proportion of both materials, and the thickness of the fiber. The main objective behind producing bicomponent fiber is to exploit capabilities that do not exist in either polymer alone.

The market for bicomponent fiber is driven by the organic growth of various end-use industries such as hygiene, automotive, textiles, and home furnish. Furthermore, exceptional advantages of bicomponent fibers, such as wide range of bonding temperatures, unique cross-sections, enhanced bulkiness as well as liquid acquisition properties, compared to other competing materials (mono-component fiber), are driving the increase in their penetration across industry verticals. The market experienced exceptional growth over the past decade, creating a huge interest among participants.

The COVID-19 pandemic devastated the growth of the global economy, taking various industries under its lethal grip. Industries, such as automotive, textile, and home furnishing, are proving to be some of its biggest victims. Despite the widespread impact of the pandemic, the bicomponent fiber is among the few man-made fibers that are recording a relatively low impact of the pandemic in their demand. The sharp plunge in home furnishing, automotive, and textile industries is partially offset by the exceptional growth from the hygiene and medical applications in the year 2020. It is expected that the market for bicomponent fibers is likely to record a speedy recovery from 2021 onwards and reach an estimated value of US$ 2,260 million in 2026.

Based on the material type, Co-PET/PET dominates the bicomponent fiber market in terms of both, value and volume shipments. Co-PET/PET is used in a wide range of applications in the non-woven industry having a melt temperature below 110°C. Desirable strength, lightweight, better dyeability, wrinkle-resistance, cost-effective nature, and excellent wash wear properties are key whys and wherefores of the product category. PE/PP bicomponent fiber has superior properties, such as enhanced softness, bulkiness, and liquid absorption properties, which have led to its significant demand in the USA and Western European countries. 

Based on the structure type, sheath-core leads the market. This structure type is generally processed as bonding fiber for non-wovens. Typically, these are used in two forms, concentric and eccentric types, based on the emphasis on product strength and bulkiness, respectively. Side-by-side fiber also offers a sizeable market opportunity and is generally used as self-crimping fiber.

Hygiene is projected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Rising health and hygiene awareness among people around the world is fueling the growth in the demand for various hygiene products, such as feminine products, baby diapers, and wipes. Also, the demand for disposable hygiene products, such as diapers and sanitary napkins, has been growing in line with the world’s population increase. Key requirements for hygiene products, such as softness, better fluid absorption, low irritation to the skin, high strength, and high bulkiness, are efficiently fulfilled by bicomponent fiber.

In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is likely to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing region in the long-term scenario, owing to a host of factors such as large population base, increasing disposable income of consumers, and increasing awareness of hygiene products such as diapers and feminine hygiene products. Emerging nations, such as China and India, are experiencing a rapid increase in the usage of the bicomponent fiber. North America and Europe have high penetration of bicomponent fiber and offer sizeable market opportunities. Among all regions, Europe is the worst-hit region by the pandemic in 2020; however, the demand in the region is estimated to resuscitate in the coming years.

Key bicomponent fiber manufacturers are Cha Technologies Group, ES FiberVisions, Far Eastern New Century Corporation, Freudenberg Group, Huvis Corporation, Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, Jiangsu Jiangnan High Polymer Fiber Co., Ltd., Toray Industries, Inc, JNC Corporation, Yaolong Nonwoven, Kolon Glotech, EMS-Chemie Holding AG, Eastman Chemical Company, and Jiaxing Xinwei Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd.
