Global Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTT) Fiber Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

PTT fiber is a synthetic fiber, made from polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT). It has a high resistance to wear and tear, as well as abrasion. PTT fiber is often used in carpeting, upholstery, and clothing.

Petroleum Based PTT Fiber:

Petroleum based PTT fibers are prepared by treating the polymer with sulfuric acid and heating it at a temperature of about 200°C for about 4 to 6 hours. The product is then washed with water, which dissolves the residual acid. After that, it is dried in an oven at a temperature of about 150°C for 8 to 10 hours.

Bio Based PTT Fiber:

Bio-based PTT Fiber is a type of polymer that consists of three independent polymers connected by hydrogen bonds. It has high thermal stability and excellent chemical resistance. Bio based PTT fibers are used in the manufacturing of thermoplastic films, which are widely utilized for insulation applications in various end-use industries such as building & construction, automotive, packaging and electrical & electronics among others.

Application Insights:

The automotive interior segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is projected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. PTT fibers are used in manufacturing carpets, which are then installed in interiors of vehicles to provide better grip and comfort. The product has high resistance towards oils, fuels, acids and alkalis which makes it suitable for use as an automotive interior carpet fiber.

Polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) fibers offer several benefits including cost-effectiveness along with superior performance when compared with traditional synthetic materials such as nylon or polyester due to their higher strength-to-weight ratio. These factors make PTT fibers a preferred material for use in manufacturing automobile carpets owing to their excellent properties such as durability, water resistance & moisture absorption capacity along with superior aesthetics when compared to other synthetic products used for manufacturing automobile interiors.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber market in terms of revenue with a share of over 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing automobile production and investments made by various governments for infrastructural development, which will drive demand for carpets and clothing applications.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe, which accounted for a share of nearly 28.0% in 2017 owing to growing automotive production coupled with favorable government regulations regarding environment protection and energy conservation implemented across European countries such as Germany, France, Italy, etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the textile industry for high-quality fabrics is expected to drive the growth of PTT fiber market.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using PTT fibers in various applications is projected to fuel the demand for PTT fibers over the forecast period.
  • Growing use of composites in automobiles and other transportation sectors is anticipated to create new opportunities for PTT fiber market players.
  • Rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies are expected to boost the demand for high-performance materials, such as PTT fibers, over the next few years.
