DUBLIN, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "PTFE Fabric Market by Type (PTFE Coated Fabric, Nonwoven Fabric, and PTFE Fiber-Made Fabric), End-Use Industry (Food, Construction, Filtration), and Region (Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, South America) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The PTFE fabric market is projected to grow from USD 690.8 million in 2018 to USD 908.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2018 to 2023.

High demand for PTFE fabrics in the automotive industry, their growing consumption in the construction industry, and increasing consumption of composite fabrics for industrial applications are the key factors driving the growth of the PTFE fabric market across the globe. The high cost of PTFE coated fabrics in comparison to PVC coated fabrics is the key factor restricting the growth of the market.

The nonwoven fabric segment is expected to be the largest type segment of the PTFE fabric market during the forecast period. PTFE-based nonwoven fabrics are extensively used in composites manufacturing. They are also used as a component in the apparel, healthcare, and industrial applications, thus keeping the demand for this segment high.

By end-use industry, the food segment is expected to lead the PTFE fabric market from 2018 to 2023. This segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Anti-friction and non-flammability are the key advantages of PTFE fabric, and with PTFE being an FDA-approved, there is a growing demand for this fabric in the food segment.

The Asia Pacific region is the largest and the fastest-growing market for PTFE fabric across the globe. The Asia Pacific PTFE fabric market is majorly driven by the growing demand from end-use industries, such as food, construction, and filtration. The growth of these end-use industries is largely driven by the region's growing population, increasing per capita income, and changing lifestyle. Rising demand across the globe has led to capacity expansions by the manufacturers of PTFE fabric.

Leading players have adopted various strategies, such as expansion, acquisition, new product launch, contract, and consolidation to increase their market presence and to meet the growing demand for PTFE fabrics.
