Global Fabric Folding Machines Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Fabric folding machines are used to fold fabric. They can be used to fold a single piece of fabric or multiple pieces of fabric at the same time. Fabric folding machines are important because they make it easier to fold fabric, which makes it easier to store or ship.


Manual machines are those which are operated by manual operation using various tools and instruments. These include vertical, horizontal, and single shaft folding machines. The market for these products is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to their increasing demand in packaging industries as well as in food processing industry.


Semi-automatic machines are used in fabric folding machines to perform two or more consecutive folds of the fabric. These types of folding machine have a number of settings including different fold levels andfolding ratios, which can be changed as per the requirements. Semi-automatic machines are also known as manual/semi-automated or power assisted devices.

The demand for semi-automatic devices is increasing due to its ability to save time.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes office, retail and warehouse. The demand for the product is expected to increase in these applications due to the increasing number of manufacturing units globally. Fabric folding machines are widely used in offices, hotels and other hospitality industries for ease of handling and crease free delivery of bedding sets, table cloths, towels etc. In addition, these machines are used at airports on a rental basis as they assist in reducing the baggage load by 50%.

Hotel was estimated as the largest application segment with a market share of over 35% in 2017 owing to high demand from global hotel chains such as Hilton Worldwide Inc., Marriot International Inc., Taj Group etc. Folding cartons/boxes help reduce wasteage caused during transportation & storage resulting into reduced environmental impact along with providing an eco-friendly solution which is likely to propel industry growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global fabric folding machine market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing demand for smart solutions for producing promotional products such as leaflets, brochures, and pamphlets at low cost with high efficiency. Moreover, rising number of hospitals and educational institutions in countries such as China and India are driving the regional market further.

North America accounted for a significant share in terms of revenue owing to growing demand from several industries including hospitality, healthcare & education sectors within U.S., Canada, and Mexico respectively which forms a major part of this industry’s revenue generation across this region globally.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for fabric folding machines from the apparel industry as it helps in improving the efficiency of the production process.
  • Rising demand for automated fabric folding machines from small and medium-sized enterprises due to its low cost and easy operability.
  • Growing popularity of fabric folders among end users due to its ability to reduce labor costs and improve product quality.
  • Technological advancements in fabric folding machines that offer enhanced performance, accuracy, and speed.
