The market size of industrial fabric is estimated at USD 120.94 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 153.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.9% between 2018 and 2023.

The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing use of industrial fabrics in the automotive industry owing to the superior properties offered by these fabrics, such as high strength, rigidity, and heat resistance.

Stringent government regulations pertaining to industrial fabrics restrain the industrial fabric market growth. Various regulations have been imposed by different countries regarding the manufacturing of industrial fabrics. These fabrics are subjected to various regulations in their entire ecosystem, starting from the sourcing stage, design stage, and pre-shipment stage to the manufacturing stage.

The industrial fabric market has been segmented based on application, fiber, and region. On the basis of application, the industrial fabric market has been classified into conveyor belts, transmission belts, protective apparel, automotive carpet, flame resistant apparel, and others. Automotive carpet is one of the major applications of industrial fabric, and this application segment is estimated to dominate the overall industrial fabric market in 2018. The useful properties offered by industrial fabrics, such as tensile strength, heat resistance, chemical resistance, and controlled elongation make them ideal for use in the aforementioned applications.

On the basis of fiber, the industrial fabric market has been classified into polyamide, polyester, aramid, composite, and other fibers. These fibers offer various useful properties, such as high durability, abrasion resistance, high strength, good elasticity, and quick drying.
