Global Polyester Short Fiber Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A synthetic fiber made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and other chemicals, used for making clothing, furniture, and other objects. Polyester short fiber is important because it is strong, durable, and can be recycled.

By Type:

By type, it's usage and growth factor in the market for Polyester Short Fiber are analyzed & estimated in terms of volume (Million), revenue (USD Million) and price (Y-o-Y Growth).

The global By Type segment is classified into staple fiber, semi-staple fiber & cross-linked fibers. The staple fibers segment includes long staple fibers and short or medium staples fibers.


Solid is a type of fiber that is produced from the stalks of plants and has no liquid or hollow parts in it. It can be used for making yarns, ropes, filaments or even paper-making. The most common types of solid fibers are flax, jute and hemp which are used in various applications including clothing materials like cotton & woolen clothes along with household textiles such as carpets & rugs.

Application Insights:

The apparel segment led the global polyester short fiber market and accounted for more than 54.0% share of the overall revenue in 2017. Polyester short fibers are widely used in manufacturing sportswear, casual wear, activewear and other types of clothing due to its properties such as moisture-wicking, quick drying and high stretchability. These fibers can be easily molded into different shapes which makes them highly suitable for use in making sports equipment including rackets, balls and jumpers among others.

Polyester has been one of the most popular fabrics used for manufacturing gym bags owing to its water resistance property along with good durability against abrasions & scratches over a wide range of temperatures from -40°C to +104°C which makes it highly suitable for use in carrying out sporting activities at various outdoor locations including golf courses, parks etc among others worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period.
